The first thing that should be understood is that even though the cover says 14 games in all, that does not mean 14 remixed games. I means 5 remixed games and 9 old emulated arcade "classics".
First the remix versions.
Galaga: You are basically protecting pacman while he rolls through a 3d luge course. I found it to be pretty fun and it seemed to keep what Galaga is all about, shooting bugs.
Rally-X: Go Karts trying to capture flags. I seemed boring in single player, multiplayer was more fun. I haven't really played the original the friend I was playing with said it was just like it.
Pac n Roll: Seemed just like Monkey Ball.
Pac-Motos: You have to know red balls off a flat board without being knocked off yourself. More fun in multiplayer.
Gator Panic: Like whack a mole.
Now on to the emulated games:
Galaxian, Dig Dug, Mappy, Xevious, Super Pac-Man, Pac & Pal, Pac-Mania
These are all pretty much ones that have been released in tons of other systems. The emulation seems to be spot on.
That leaves Gaplus,and Cutey Q. Gaplus as far as I can tell is a Galaxian clone. Cutey Q seems to be a breakout type of game. IMHO both games really should have been left out.
So is the game really worth it to rent (or buy)? I think it's worth to rent. I don't think it's worth buying at $40. At 19.99 it probably would be.
Galaga Remix is fun.
Remixes are fun in multiplayer.
Motion controls aren't really used.
Not all games remixed.
Emulated games are the same games we have gotten tons of other times.
Feels like a budget title.
Not Bad, But Not Wonderful

I can garentie that this is more of a party game then a 1 player game. it is way more funner that way. I mean sure they got the other one player games like that pac man world thing, but that is when you are alone and "waiting" for company. This game is epic cause it has the classic arcade games that were before the remix came alone. Like 'Rally X' turns into 'Rally X remix' it's got the same rules so it probibly won't make sense if their are 2 of the same game. The onley difference is that when you complete the intire levles of the game, you can play as "Red Mode" which you have to catch Pac Man but cant use the smoke attack. See how that feels when Pac Man escapes now. 'Galiga' turns into 'Galiga Remix' I had a lot of fun with my freinds shooting those bugs and insect trying to get pac man and stuff. 'Gator panic' is really a lot more like wack a mole BUT WITH 4 PLAYERS! you will never know who got the most gators just like who got the most insects kills in 'Galiga Remix.' Now for another cool game, 'Pac Moto' it is more like a mix of fighting and strategy mostley you have to nock the most items out of the stage or nock your freinds out of the stage just for the fun of it.
So anyway that is my review Great games are for the Partys just like Tekken X-D
Good But Left Me Feeling Empty! Should Be $29.99
