Summary: A lovely compilation which, overall, stands up well with the games included. I only actually purchased this for Don Doko Don, but as a sucker for old skool and Taito-phile in general I'd recommend it highly. I would also recommend hunting it down on PS2 for the other "exclusives", but beware the wildly differing prices!
WOW, I DIDN'T REALISE I HAVE BEEN PLAYING ON THESE GAMES THIS LONG

Summary: First things, buy this, all the games on this, because the graphics are easily produced now that games have better graphics than this, can easily be reproduced to the arcade origanals, does anybody remember front line, you have a soldier and you used to turn a circle type button to turn his gun and you also had a grenade and after that you where up against tanks, some with machine guns and some that fired sugar lumps at you, well they looked like sugar lumps and you...
Summary: When I purchased this budget titled game, I wondered what I was letting my self in for. Luckily Taito Legends 2 turns out to be brilliant fun, with lots to get through. This compilation seems to cover a whole varity of games ranging from puzzle titles to shooters to beat-em-ups and sport. Anyone who likes puzzle games will love (Puzzle Bobble 2).
Summary: This game is really fun and is worth buying for just two or three of these games alone. But you get nearly 40 games on this package, and although you'll probably stick to your favourites at first, you will be discovering real gems of games amongst the rest for weeks to come. If you like 2D shoot-em-ups you will love this collection as Rayforce and Darius Gaiden are brilliant games, and theres plenty of puzzle games as well.
Summary: I've had the Xbox version of "Taito Legends 2" on pre-order since it was announced - for two reasons: "RayStorm" (quite possibly my favourite vertical scrolling shooter) and the sublime "G-Darius" (definitely my favourite ever horizontal scrolling shooter). Having owned both of these titles on the PSOne, I was looking forward to a beautiful reunion - hopefully with higher-resolution graphics, and less slow-down thanks to more powerful hardware. Yay!
Summary: Vernimmt man den Namen „X-Men Legends 2 – Rise of the Apocalypse“, dürfte man schnell auf den Gedanken kommen, dass es sich um ein Jump and Run, ein Actionspiel oder ein Beat em Up der bekannten Comic-Mutanten handelt, doch weit gefehlt, in diesem Fall handelt es sich um ein Action-Rollenspiel, ein Grund mehr für mich, es mir einmal genauer anzuschauen. Erleichtert stelle ich letztlich fest, dass es sich mitnichten um eine lieblose Umsetzung bekannter Comic-Helden bzw.
Pros: Für Fans der X - Men ein Muss, unzählige Spielfiguren, viele Spezialmanöver
Cons: Die Szenerie wirkt insgesamt unterkühlt bzw . steril, nervig chaotisches Echtzeit - Kampfgewusel
