A good collection if you like the games it comes with
21 October 2014
Summary: I decided to pick up this game collection since I had a craving to play Smash TV once again. Unfortunately my great memories of playing Smash TV come from the SNES version, and the arcade version of Smash TV was included in this collection. While I thought I would be able to adapt to the dual analog stick layout for the game, it just didn't feel natural to me, so I wasn't able to enjoy it like I once did.
Summary: I really wanted to play these games but the controls just don't transfer over to the xbox 360. it's crazy to think a lesser older system plays these games so well and they weren't able to adapt it to the new system.
The games are good but most don't translate well to an XBox controller
technical spectacle, Amazon

Summary: The collection of Midway classics on the disk is quite good. I am a huge retro gamer and I was really looking forward to this collection. However, there is a serious flaw...and this is not with the game itself. The flaw is that most of these games do not translate well to the Xbox controller. I found playing the games tedious and unauthentic. While some of the games are still fun, the majority I played once or twice and gave up disappointed.
Summary: Its hard to review the games we have played over and over when we were younger. The games play a little too fast due the cpu delta from old machines. But, it is fun to pop in and play for a couple hours.
Summary: Neat selection mode where you can see all the arcade machines and it tells you what year the came out. The graphics are true to the originals, but my kids quickly tired of the experience. It was put away within 15 minutes of opening it. A better rental or loaner.
Summary: Liked that it had more games than expected or have heard of back in the old arcade days. The not so great part is that older games require much more patience with the controls, especially with games you've never played before. The controls on the games I was familiar with seem a little clunky with modern controllers.
