  • Excerpt: Anyone old enough to remember Midway Games will no doubt already be planning to buy Midway Arcade Origins for nostalgia reasons and is here to find a better argument to justify their ravenous appetite. For those that have never heard of Midway Games, there probably isn’t enough persuasive power in the entire Jedi Academy to convince you to buy this compilation and for that reason this review will probably be received by such youngsters as a terrible dissertation on...

  • Excerpt: The history of video games can be a fun journey for younger gamers as they explore the older generations longtime favorite games that helped spawn the various genres that make up the gaming industry today. Likewise, older gamers can enjoy the classic titles with fond childhood memories of growing up while spending hard earned allowances at one quarter a play just to get another crack at the high score in Joust at the local arcade.

  • Excerpt: Nothing ages quite so poorly as technology, but ‘80s-arcade fans are bound to feel nostalgic yearning for some of the 30 games in Midway Arcade Origins . Fire up Gauntlet or its sequel with three friends, and you’ll relish how magical those early dungeon crawls are. The same goes for simpler fare like Defender ’s blasting, Rampage ’s building-bashing, and Spy Hunter ’s road rage.
  • Pros: + Substantial collection of enjoyable classics, most of which look sharp and control well.
  • Cons: ? Where are

  • Summary: With each new release gamers are looking for better graphics, tighter controls, inspiring stories and interesting characters but sometimes it is nice to go back and play some classic arcade titles from years gone by. Not all of us can afford, or have the space, to own actual arcade cabinets nor do we want to spent copious amounts of money sitting in an amusement park with a bunch of kids.
  • Pros: Variety of games on offer, Stay true to the original games for the most part
  • Cons: Controls can be awkward at times

Midway Arcade Origins: essere retro non basta

3 April 2013
  • Excerpt: È sempre più difficile sfornare delle collezioni di classici che soddisfino il palato dei giocatori moderni. Non è una questione di nostalgia, e nemmeno di gusti personali. Se un tempo le vecchie glorie erano accessibili solo al popolo dell'emulazione, oggi sono disponibili su una miriade di piattaforme, nei formati più disparati.

  • Conclusion: Tenía siete u ocho años cuando jugué por primera vez a Xenophobe. Venía del mundo de Nintendo, así que estaba acostumbrado a personajes coloridos, mundos encantados y una sensación general de desenfado. Recuerdo que uno de los personajes disponibles era una especie de hombre-pato con cabeza azul, y me pareció gracioso.
  • Pros: Gran variedad de juegos, modalidad online, clasificaciones, logros.
  • Cons: Se queda corto en contenido y documentación, pocas novedades significativas, no consigue recrear la magia de las recreativas.

  • Conclusion: Avevo sette o otto anni quando giocai per la prima volta a Xenophobe. Venivo dal mondo Nintendo, ed ero abituato a personaggi colorati, mondi incantati e un generale senso di spensieratezza. Ricordo che uno dei personaggi disponibili era una specie di uomo-papero con la testa blu, e mi sembrava buffo. Ma il gioco era un vero incubo: da solo, affrontavo decine e decine di mostri letali in basi spaziali ormai completamente invase dalla minaccia aliena.
  • Pros: L'assortimento dei giochi è ottimo, modalità online, classifiche, obiettivi
  • Cons: Il pacchetto è piuttosto scarno, poche aggiunte significative, manca la magia della sala giochi
