  1. Not only do you get some of the most stunningly playable titles from gaming history, with a simple and easy way to select them, but also a wide selection of bonus features with which to keep real retro fanatics' juices flowing.
  2. For anyone with the inclination to be educated in how games used to consist of pure gameplay magic, or for those who wish to revisit their gaming pasts, Taito Legends is a superior collection of titles, some of which are truly classics in the absolute sense of the word.
  3. If you want to play some great classic arcade games, this is your game.
  4. The lack of light gun support drags down Operation Wolf, but with games like Elevator Action and Bubble Bobble on board, Taito Legends offers good classic arcade action at a budget price.
  5. The emulation is dead-on, your controller's analog sensitivity is adjustable, and there are historical images and stories and interviews for fans. [Holiday 2005, p.88]
  6. Space Invaders needs no further justification for ownership.
  7. It's not much return on your 20 quid investment. [Nov 2006, p.140]

    Not every game is a "legend", but a lot of pretty good. Arkanoid should have been included. I loved Phoenix and Zoo Keeper.
