I was pretty excited about this game, the concept of it is great. Being able to play old classics on the ps3 like you can on the Wii is a solid idea. The game is set up well in that you can sort the games alphabetically, by year, genre or by rating. It's nice being able to save the game at any point. They even threw in a little history museum with original cover art and interesting facts. Unfortunately, the games they chose to include don't really deserve the "Ultimate" title. Don't expect to play all the games you loved in the past, because you'll be sorely disappointed. No "Toe Jam and Earl", "NBA Jam", or "Flashback"? No old "Madden"s or "Mortal Kombat"s? "Tecmo Bowl" even? How about "Road Rash?" The list could go on and on and everyone's would be different, but some of the games they did include are terrible and I've never heard of them. But, I do realize it could have been unavoidable, maybe legal issues? It can't just be a not enough money for the license thing, you cant tell me Toe Jam is too busy working on other projects right now, or that Earl was holding out for a larger salary. Still pretty fun playing some Sonic, but I would've given this game a 7 or higher with just a couple more quality classics to play so it would have greater replay value.

Well let me start off by saying same old games but why do they seem more challeging then when we were kids? I swear, I couldn't get past the 4th stage in my all time fav Altered Beast if my life depended on it. A little dissapointed they did'nt have Booger Man or Battle Toads but maybe next time. This game is a definate renter and not a buyer. Thanks
The Audio was not working properly in this game...menu sound was loud gameplay was silent, yet I went to the options and turned up the gameplay volume and still no sound...other than that the game is fun
