although I am a big fan of re-releasing older classics in the collections format, these are not EA's best games. Mutant league football is a classic Genesis Game. Also also spent hours playing Road Rash. My main complaint is that some of the better EA classics in my mind were not represented, but still a decent game. EA is the best sports franchise ever, it would have been nice to see more games like NBA live for Genesis, Madden 95, triple play, etc.

I rented this game purely for SYNDICATE. I loved this game when it came out on the computer. It was the first game I booted up after slipping the disc into the PSP. Ouch. The game loses a lot in the translation to the PSP. While it was fun a little, I had a hard time justifying more time spent playing it. The other games were fun for about 4 to 6 minutes each. Some not that long even.
Overall, Syndicate was a fun few hours of nostalgic gaming - but I am glad I had not bought it. Remember when you gave orders and it would say "Syndicate. Syndicate." Yeah. Not here. Such a bummer.
You obviously can not compare this kind of game with other more recent PSP games - but you can compare with other retro game assortments. This one does not have enough 'oldies but goodies' to keep my interest.
This is without a doubt the worst game I have ever played for the Sony PSP and one of the worst games I have ever played for all systems. The controls along with the graphics are terrible. If they were going to make a game like this(a collection of older games), they should have chosen better games to put on the disc.
