  1. Although using the analog stick or d-pad doesn't compare to the arcade joysticks of old, I appreciate being able to tweak the number of lives you get for each game. [Oct 2005, p.128]
  2. Although clearly not targeted towards the hardcore gamer, this is a great way to revisit some old favorites.
  3. Unlike Midway's Arcade Treasures series there's nothing in the way of background, historical or inside information on the titles.
  4. Even though game is lacking on extra stuff, Namco Museum 50th Anniversary is still Namco's best compilation package ever.
  5. It might not have a shiny package, but it's everything we loved about the arcade.

    It's a mixed bag but definately better than the first collection. Out of this lot, only Mappy and Sky Kid come off as throwaways. The It's a mixed bag but definately better than the first collection. Out of this lot, only Mappy and Sky Kid come off as throwaways. The graphics are not crips and are a bit blurry but I doubt if that could be helped and it's not that big a deal. The presentation is very minimal and the videos are horrible, they could use subtitles to make out what is being said. Worth it for Ms Pac-Man, Rolling Thunder, Dig Dug and Galaxain alone.
