  1. On the one hand, there are more than sixty games available in portable form. Some of them have even been genuinely enhanced, if you're interested. Unfortunately, many players probably won't have the patience to unlock the full library of classics and will be stuck with the eleven that are available from the start.

I'm happy with theAs an old school gamer, who spent many-a-quarter in arcades on all of these games, I am happy with this collection. I'm happy with the game=play, I'm happy with the choice of games, I'm even happy with the updates and changes made. I like these updates better than the updates on the PS One collection. The reason I don't give the game a better score is because the unlock to get to those juicy original 2600 games, That I bought the bloody disk for is.....

    I can't think of a term that isn't vulgar.

    Imagine being a given a game system, and every game that was made for it, the only trick is you have to parkour (yes that is spelled correctly no matter what the idiotic spell checker says, what does it use an Alabama dictionary?) Anyway, you have to parkour naked through the entire city of San-Francisco and you have exactly 4 minutes to accomplish it.

    I don't want to have to be a bloody master of Warlords to be able to play the 2600 version of Warlords! I'm old now! These games are for us old farts who are wasting time looking back at all the time we wasted! Who ever came up with the idea that you had to get every achievement in the game to unlock the games that are, by proxy of age the crappiest games on the disk, needs to be made to graduate from the Marine Corps Boot Camp, and given a blanket party on a nightly basis!

    If you love Arcade Classics and have a PSP, then you owe it to yourself to get this version. Just don't expect to see the Atari 2600 games unless your some sort of hardcore-retro-masochist that doesn't want to make time for modern game that are hundreds of times better looking, and just as fun to boot.
