  1. 100
    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. They’re great for killing a few minutes while riding the train or standing in line at your local Burger King.
  5. Reprises the old addictive favorites on the Game Boy Advance without any control, playability or screen limitations, and offers an excellent means to introduce the games to new fans or a trip down memory lane for veterans.
  6. 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.
  7. If you've got the retro bug, you could do much worse than this collection of Namco classics.
  8. Despite a few issues, it's quite a nice collection.
  9. For fans of the old arcade games, this proves to be a nice handheld diversion, especially if you no longer have an arcade nearby.
  10. Just a simple cash-in on some old properties that are beginning to show their age.

    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. Full Review »

    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. Full Review »

    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! Full Review »
