  1. Overall, it's a very worthwhile package and one that you won't regret picking up.
  2. Namco Museum Essentials provides precisely what the name implies: a handful of iconic, still-fantastic games with a slick social wrapper to keep them relevant. Simple as that.
  3. 72
    The presentation here is top-notch, which is really what makes or breaks the package for me. However, it kind of sucks that there isn't support for two players in most of these games.
  4. The inclusion of Dragon Spirit and Xevious Resurrection keep things feeling fresh, but they're not substantial enough to get gamers excited.
  5. Namco Museum Essentials is exactly what it says it is – a collection of 5 oldschool games and 1 remake. For this kind of money I would either like to have more classics or a few remakes, not a mix of the two. Thumbs up for the stamp system and online score boards, though.
  6. 60
    Most of the games in Namco Museum Essentials are plenty dull to play. [Issue#193, p.103]
  7. Definitely avoid at this price. [Aug 2010, p.101]
