Summary: Excellent! Brings back the joys and excitement of video games in the 80s. Even my children love to play these "retro" games! Now this generation is embracing the 80s technology as their own. Everyone can share in the joys of gaming back then and you can relive a piece of your childhood.
Summary: Judged on just the extras, menus & features, this title is far from special. Compared to what Capcom has delivered with their "Classics" series, a few extra features like save states and shorter load times would have been nice. However, I bought this title for the Pac-Man, Ms Pac-Man and Galaga emulations, and on that note 50th Anniverary delivers. First off, the graphics & sound for Pac-Man, Ms.
Summary: This is a good colection of some of the classics, the main reason I got this was for Rolling Thunder and Xevious (since I've never seen them on any other collection of games). I used to love those 2 games when I was a kid. Most of the other games are cool but a good bit of them are already on other classic games out there (like Pac-man, mrs pac-man, galaga, dig dug ect...).
Summary: There is so much to say with nostaligic video games these days. Yet, with so many different games that have been coming back and definitely remaining a constant in the industry. That has been the case with Namco and their brand of video games. We've seen classics from their main attraction, Pac Man revive the company over and over again to still stand as a popular favorite for every video game system.
Summary: This is a great collection of Namco's classic games. If you bought the Namco Museum for XBox, then you know about the jerky movement of both Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man. Very distracting but they are gone in this set. Plus there are more games and they added the classic Galaga '88'. All you need is to score 40000 on Galaga and it's yours but why even bother because 40000 on Galage should be no problem for moderate to pro players.
Summary: This compilation is a "new and improved" version of Namco's previous efforts of giving us some of their great arcade classics to play at home in their original versions, with no quarters required! Each game is represented on-screen by a stand up cabinet complete with marquee, all arranged in a circle inside the "arcade." You can even watch the games show their demo modes on their miniature screens. The translations of "Pac-Man" and "Ms.
Summary: Namco may be 50 years old, but the games in this collection aren't even half that. Not that it matters. Pac-Man and Ms.Pac-Man are the two definitive video games of the 80's. Galaga: the best of the space-invaders type games. Pole Position I and II: the first modern racing games. Dig Dug: the only digging tunnels and pumping enemies up game Xevious: futuristic top-down scrolling shooter Plus Rolling Thunder, Rally X, Bosconian, Dragon Spirit, Sky Kid, Mappy and Galaxian.
Summary: This is worth having for Pole Position 2 alone - I have played it more than any other xbox racing title. Very addictive and fun. Galaga is a good blast, Galaxians is okay though too tough. The 2 Pac Man games show how playable simple games can be. The rest of the games are dire and after 30 seconds of play you will never want to touch again. Also, the load times are beyond a joke. Exiting a game to get to the selection screen takes about 3-4 minutes!
