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: Classic Gamer at Heart will Love this series of Arcade Ports. Have not Dug into all the games yet, but so far Im loving the game. My favorite game Wizard of Wor is a very good port with all the stages and sounds in place but I am noticeing clitches in game play pop up. Smash TV , what happen to the original music? Marble Madness is meant to play with a track ball. Robotron works well and so does sinastar and bubbles, and Defender.
Pros: Old Arcade in its original form
Cons: Old Arcade & New Technology Dont Always mix well
Summary: Great if you grew up playing Joust, Bubble Bubble, Gauntlet, and other 1980/1990 video games. An awesome value for a low price. All the games you grew up on one disk. The best part is you don't need to get quarters to play!!!!
Pros: Multiple games on 1 XBOX 360 disk
Cons: If you do not remember 80's/90's video games, this is not for you.
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..
