  • Summary: How much would you pay for nostalgia? That's the question you need to ask yourself before shelling out 10 bucks for this game. I have fond memories of huddling around the double-screen cabinet at my local, dark, dirty arcade waiting for my chance to jump in and play this game. Once out of tokens, I would stay and watch other people play - that was how far my childhood love of the X-Men and video games went.

  • Summary: I have great memories of playing this game as a little kid with my cousin and my sister. We spent many hours working that machine. When I first picked up the 360 and started trying out the demo games, my first thought was "Where is the X-Men Arcade game?". When I first saw the game in the arcade I was very excited! The game is exactly the same as the old arcade version and that is exactly what I was hoping for.

  • Summary: I remember having to wait to play this game back in the arcades. It's certainly a great to finally not have to worry about waiting in line, or having enough quarters to play through the whole game. I love classic brawlers, and this one is pretty good. The robots are dumb, the story is silly, but there is something rewarding about punching and kicking bad guys, rather than shooting them, and this game reminds you of that. I give it to fists up. Happy Punching!

  • Summary: Loved this game in the arcades as a kid, but this XBLA release is an awful, cheap cash-in. A bloated 800 MS Points ($10) asking price for a 17-year old arcade port that offers nothing new in the way of additional levels, characters, graphical overhauls or bonus features. By comparison the TMNT Arcade Game, Gunstar Heroes, Contra, Golden Axe and other direct, unaltered ports on XBLA are only 400 MS Points ($5).

  • Summary: An arcade perfect version of a 90's classic. it allows you to either play the US or Japan version of the game, as well as up to 6 players online or locally. this was way overdue, and by itself is as good as any retro collection out there on the market today.
