Summary: Xybots, Rampage, Offroad, and Sinistar are the highlights for me on this disc. Of do they bring back memories of pumping quarters into the games at the local arcade with my junior high buddies. They got the games right on just about every occasion and hearing Sinistar yell, "I HUNGER" while playing in my basement made me jump just like it did playing in the arcade. Great purchase!
Summary: If you like to play old school arcade games, this disc contains most of the old Williams' titles from the early 80's through the mid 90's. It lacks a few games that I was hoping would be on it but the ones that are, really bring back memories and the conversion of arcade controls to the Xbox 360 controls is a pretty smooth transition!
Summary: I'm not sure how WB Games were able to get the rights to Midways Game catalog (They must've struck a deal when they bought the Mortal Kombat license This Collection Brings a great back-catalog of some of the best Arcade games I grew up playing all over the place Back in the day stores, pizza places and even gas stations had Arcade Cabinets Not just Arcades....
A blast from the past! The old arcade games brought back to the Xbox 360

Summary: If you loved the old Midway arcade games, this is a pretty good Xbox 360 adaptation. After many of the newer shooting games, it's sometimes nice to get back to the early, more simplistic, but still challenging games. Definitely a blast from the past!
Summary: I already own Capcom Digital Collection and Namco Museum Virtual Arcade, so it goes without saying that I enjoy retro gaming. I was tempted to preorder Midway Arcade Origins but held off because the price of $29 seemed a bit high. When the price fell to $19 I got it and am happy with the purchase. None of the individual titles will get hours of stand alone game play but as a whole it is well worth owning.
Summary: This disc has 30 games but, I can think of 20 or so that Midway left off. That is really my only complaint, there is plenty of space on the disc, and WB should have tried to fill it up. Since they decided to put 30 games on the disc, there aren't enough games to make another disc of 30. The games themselves are pretty fun and there is a wide variety. Some games are suited for console controllers while others aren't.
Summary: I am avid gaming enthusiast who played games for over sixteen years. I also worked in the industry of gaming. After having played dozens of modern games on all current gen systems I've began to lean toward classics to give me some gaming diversity and to experience historical gaming. As you may know Midway as a company does not exist now.
Summary: but really lacks in so many others. Judging by how quickly the game installs to the hard drive of my xbox 360, I definitely think they could have added quite a few more titles...However, for 30$, it's still a steal. Definitely kicks back the memory to yesteryear. It does seem to have a few quirks though. Numerous times my sound would cut out in mid game, but would come back after the level was over..
