    Packed to the rafters with 14 magnificent games from the heyday of arcade history, Namco Museum: 50th Anniversary is an equal parts assault of entertaining variety and challenging frustration.

    The graphics are obviously dated, but accurate, and the audio is fantastic. [Nov 2005, p.90]

    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]

    Brings back some fond memories. Some of the games have aged well (Galaxian, Galaga), some have not (Pole Position). Why are there only a dozen games? [Jan 2006]
  5. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine

    If you have always intended to buy a collection of classic arcade games, then this is as comprehensive as you're going to get. [Nov 2005, p.93]

    Should have included some more Pac Man games and Soul Calibur.
