Perfect

Yes! Classic games for all

When I looked at the cover of this game, I knew it was going to be good-- it was jam-packed with incredible old school favorites. I'd been waiting for years for someone to finally make it possible for home console fans to play the arcade legend, Galaga 88. And now we can!

The dimension-warping, three-ship-joining, best game in the Galaga series is now here for all to enjoy. There are also many other juggernauts from the arcade days, including special editions in the Pac Man series. Some of these were rare even back then. There is also something called "Arrangement," and I don't know what that means-- but who cares, this catalog of games is so good that the rest of the list more than makes up for it.

If you have a party coming up, this one will provide lots of choices for you and your friends. If you want to set some records, you don't have to come up with a roll of quarters like we used to do -- this bundle of games is ready to go.

Classics for Achievers

Not a very addicting arcade, but it's a decent rental for achievements.
Some games can be addicting such as Pac-Man, Rally-X, Mappy, Ms. Pac-Man, and Galaga.
The newer version of Galaga is quite confusing at first (it's like an entirely new game), but it's highly addicting.

Overall this game gets a 7/10
Balanced addiction factor
Enough games for 1 person
Achievements to accomplish are really EASY
Namco always leaves out ToyPop :(

If this Arcade had ToyPop then I would of given it a 9/10 ;)

With today's video game technology its great to go back and play some classics from days gone bye. updated versions of the classics are included but i find the originals are the best. with 30 or so of namcos greatest hits in your system you cant go wrong. this is one to buy and break out once in a while for great fun. and for us "older" players to introduce to our children. rating :7 skully72
