  1. It looks a little stretched, but it was either that or a smaller picture with black bars. No question, I'll take the stretched version.

    These games aren't cutting-edge, but they are classics. Each game brought back great arcade memories for me, and reminded me that I've been playing games for almost 25 years.
  3. A good choice for people who don't already own Namco's two earlier collections.
  4. 60
    Nothing but a shameless rehash of previously released titles repackaged as a new release. With only five games, this latest "classic" leaves you feeling a bit gipped.
  5. 60
    The lack of SRAM is an incredible disappointment, especially this late in the GBA's life where even the most basic of game developments earn the precious save chip.
  6. The lack of extras is even more significant in the GBA collection because it consists of only five titles. [Nov 2005, p.112]

    If you can live without high scores and multiplayer, then you'll be fine. Just don't bother if you already own the original Namco Museum and Pac-Man Collection. Rally-X isn't worth $20.
