    The games are right on par with there arcade parents, easy to see and play. Would have been nice to take advantage of the umd and make had some media clips from the game designers.

    I found the collection to be great for travelling with the console and a far better bargain than all of the sub-par games currently available.

    This whole point of a collection like this is to give players some immediate varied fun by presenting familiar titles. Sadly the load times prevent this from happening. The framerates of Mmortal Kombat games is bad too. Only for die-hard fans.

    This is what I consider one of two or three must-haves for the PSP. It will never leave the PSP case wherever I go, and its selection of classics can't be beat.

    This game is GREAT for the price! The classics are all here....720, Marble Madness, Mortal Kombat (1, 2 and 3).... With the analog joystick 720 and Marble Madness are exactly like the arcade versions. Only problem is you can't choose your character on Gauntlet and Rampage unless you're playing online (you have to be the Warrior in Gauntlet 1p mode and George in 1p mode Rampage).

Keep up the old school games and bring them back. Would have been nice to have had Ultimate MK3 instead of regular MK3. Haven't tried the wireless capabilities yet but should be great fun! Viva nostalgia and viva quality video games that are fun and easy to play!!! Thanks Midway! Expand

    A pretty good collection of games, especially since the first 3 Mortal Kombat games are in it. This isn't the best set of games, but Mortal Kombat 1-3 alone would sell it for me. Marble Madness (I think it's called) is also fun, along with some others. Overall, a good collection for PSP.

  1. 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]
  2. There's a lot of potential here, but many of the games have issues with their graphics, sound, or control that make the entire package a real disappointment.
  3. Worth your $29.99? If you like the games on the "best" list above, sure. Otherwise, no.
