  1. Like a Vegas buffet, the price is right, and there's something in here for everybody.
  2. 60
    The gameplay isn't nearly as deep, the graphics aren't anywhere near as good, and some of the sounds are just plain awful by today's standards, but hey who cares when you're saving the universe once again?
  3. Good for the nostalgia crowd, and that's the target audience. It's a cheap package too, so it's probably worth it. But what's with the slowdown in such old games?
  4. 60
    The presentation -- it's just awful. A horribly put together 3D interface and, save for a really fun Trivia Mode, not much else to offer in addition to the games themselves.
  5. But if the thought of parachute pants makes you feel all warm and fuzzy, you could do worse than trying to relive your glory days with this title.
  6. While the gameplay is on par with the original versions of the games, the original versions managed to look and sound a bit better than Midway's N64 renditions.
