    Portable and pure, Namco Museum is an old-school must-own.
  2. 85
    With the exception of "Galaxian," each of these games are fantastic pick-up-and-play titles that offer a quick gaming fix.
  3. 82
    Despite those minor problems, the "pick up and play" for a short while nature of this kind of gaming makes it all but perfect for portable pocket gaming system like the GBA.
  4. All the games play incredibly well, though "Pole Position" suffers a bit without its original analog steering wheel. The games also sound just like their arcade counterparts.
  5. If you've got the retro bug, you could do much worse than this collection of Namco classics.
  6. Despite a few issues, it's quite a nice collection.
  7. Just a simple cash-in on some old properties that are beginning to show their age.

    While the lack of a save function for your high scores hurts the overall package, it's worth giving a go for fans of the classics. And what's more, you don't have to put in quarters! Expand

    While it may not be as good as it's PS2 brother do to less games, it's still a good purchase if your looking for some classic games on the go, the smaller screen hurts Mrs. Pacman because you need the whole screen to see what's going on, other than that the small screen isn't really a problem, a good game with a low asking price.

    The games on here may be classics, but they do feel dated as a collection. You'll enjoy them for a while, but the high difficulty of each makes it hard to recommend. Of all the games, Dig Dug appears to be the one that is worth playing the most. Expand

    Namco Museum is very limited. Five games on a Namco Museum is a pretty short list. While the five games are good, it is still not many. The only reason I bought it was because it was like $3 and it came with a box. Other Namco Museums like Namco Museum DS and Namco Museum: 50th Anniversary less simple and involves way more, so I suggest those instead. Overall, decent game. Expand
