    With a massive selection of classic titles and wireless multi-player Extended Play is more than worth the $30 price tag.
  2. A fantastic and totally enjoyable trip down memory lane for any gamer over 40 and a valuable history lesson for anyone younger.
  3. Thankfully, nothing's been fiddled with (except the addition of Wi-Fi support), and the inclusion of Marble Madness and Championship Sprint in particular prove that quality gameplay is timeless. [PSW]
  4. They've not exactly matured like a fine cheese or wine, but this selection is worth a look. [Apr 2006, p.85]
  5. Midway ports their treasured arcade title to the PSP, but renders it almost unplayable due to the wrong display option and unbelievably long loading times.
  6. 60
    Extended Play could have been a little better in terms of its presentation and some of its title selections (why no Hydro Thunder?), but it's a good start for the series' portable run, and I hope that future chapters continue to bring us the best of Midway's gaming past.
  7. 30
    After playing the three excellent console versions of Midway Arcade Treasures, it was a major disappointment to see just how half-assed Extended Play ended up being.
