This game was simple yet fun. I was pleasently surprised by the variety and number of games in it. Heavy barrel was the most fun. Its nostalgic qualities alone made it worth renting.

I can't figure out why people don't like this title.
Ok ya its not worth buying but it's freakin fun!
I'm a huge fan of arcade games and there are some great games on this title.
It's a great game to just sit back relax and get taken back.

Not a terrible game, not a phenomenal compilation.

I'm so sick of people trashing old school games for their lack of advanced graphics and sound. This is what games were like, why can’t we appreciate where the industry was and how it has evolved?

While there are some quality Data East titles missing, I was glad to play original arcade versions of burger time and bad dudes as I was only familiar with their NES ports.

For someone who actually is interested in playing older arcade games, this may be worth a look, especially for a mere 20 bucks.

For those who's knowledge of classic gaming goes no further than Pac Man or Mario, stay away, this game's not for you.
