  1. For $19.99, this bundle is worth buying just for "Off Road Thunder" alone. [May 2006, p.102]
  2. Offers up a good value for the money with its selection of top favorites and near classics. While a PC is a poor substitute for a stand up arcade cabinet or oversized sit down model, you’ll feel transported back in time to those days when you spent all your spare change after school and then your entire allowance on Friday nights at the arcade with your friends.
  3. A tremendous value. [Aug 2007, p.61]
  4. Being very mildly priced, this compilation is a worthwhile purchase if you're interested in venturing into retro gaming on the PC without delving into the world of emulators.
  5. There are enough flaws in the compilation, however, that a purchase can't be truly recommended.
  6. While the list of games may look enticing, the package has a sloppy, thrown-together feel to it that significantly nullifies the nostalgia factor.
  7. Not bad for 20 bucks, but when I think of the hassles of going back and fourth between disks, I would just rather play another game compilation or fire up a console.
