    All four games in this collection are almost arcade perfect and run supersmoothly. [May 2003, p.40]
  2. 80
    Though the games are graphically a bit dated, the mechanics of the games themselved make up for it.
  3. Despite the omissions and deficiencies in "After Burner" and the unfortunate absence of a save feature, Sega Arcade Gallery is one retro collection that's worth owning.
  4. 78
    They're not perfect, but they're damn close to the originals...except for Afterburner which obviously received the most "editing" to get the game to run on the GBA system.
  5. This cartridge offers some of the best games from my childhood, and I’m very happy that now I can enjoy them whenever I want.
  6. Half the games aren't really up to much these days but they still provide the quick-fix gaming that the GBA is designed for. [NGC]
  7. The games survive in excellent fashion on GBA, with sharp colors and fast framerates. [Sept 2003, p.80]
  8. 69
    SAG offers a quick trip down memory lane, but repeated replaying of all four games will soon get a little stale.
  9. Really appeals to players' sense of nostalgia, but together the four titles can still hang with today's crowd. [Summer 2003, p.47]
  10. Although the games have not been graphically updated, they still look great and play smoothly. [May 2003, p.141]
  11. In my opinion it's just a little too little, too late.
  12. We'd also like to point out that Sega has a whole stack of arcade games in its archives, and could have been a mite more generous than including just four in the package. One for obsessives only.

    Out Run, Hang On and Space harrier are great as ever! After Burner is a bit disappointing, but they are all playable, and are great for a Out Run, Hang On and Space harrier are great as ever!
