    Namco is so faithful to the aspect ratio of the original games that the screen is often wee tiny. [Aug 2002, p.144]
  2. While Namco Museum is fine for people who are looking for arcade classics, players who own most of these games in another format needn't bother adding this to their collection.
  3. The biggest issue most gamers will have with this package is the obvious lack of the original control input devices, like the steering wheel for "Pole Position," or an arcade-joystick for "Pac-Man."
  4. The Arrangements could have had much better graphics and the sound in the Arrangements is absolutely horrid.

Lots of replay value to us. Full Review »
