    A battery save would have been the icing on this otherwise delicious six-layer cake. However, even without it, Arcade Advanced is an excellent example of how a retro compilation should be done.
  2. The selection in this game compilation is strong. There are no fillers included here and some of the more advanced titles (Rush'n Attack, Yie Ar Kung Fu) could be repackaged all by themselves.

    Konami didn't cheap out and quickly port six games to the system. They actually went the extra mile and included extras that gamers will enjoy discovering.

    Each one plays with a distinct style that's hard to get bored of. [May 2002, p.142]
  5. Doing the classic Konami trick (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A) on the title screen of each game will yield a surprise.
  6. This one is just for the old-schoolers who want to remember when gaming was a niche and not a business.
  7. On a purely technical level, the collection is rock-solid, with graphics, sound, and gameplay that are generally accurate to their arcade counterparts.
