    Not every game on the disc is a must-have hit, but there's a lot of fun to be had. [Oct 2008, p.89]
  2. It was interesting seeing more from a company that I thought handled primarily fighting games, and I also got to see the history of a company that is beloved by millions of gamers.
  3. Sure, it lacks some key games, (where's Super Baseball 2020?), but overall, this is one anthology you shouldn't miss.
  4. SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 moves onto the Wii with some better emulation and control options over the latter two making it a slightly more enjoyable experience.

    SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 is a solid collection that features some fantastic Neo-Geo titles (Metal Slug, Shock Troopers, Last Resort) as well as some not-so-fantastic ones.
  6. In terms of retro gaming, this is probably the best deal you can currently get on the Wii.
  7. Even at the budget price label there’s not really that much to get excited about here unless you are a massive fan of SNK’s line up and haven’t played any of these titles in years.

    the SNK Arcade classics collection is my first arcade collection ever and it is great! The 16 SNK Neo-Geo arcade titles that come with it arethe SNK Arcade classics collection is my first arcade collection ever and it is great! The 16 SNK Neo-Geo arcade titles that come with it are pure old school fun from sports to side scrolling beat-em-ups,to traditional arcade fighters to side scrolling shooters this one has it all. Considering the high price of Neo-Geo consoles and game cartridges this collection is a nice cheap alternative way to get some of the best titles for the system and arcade machine for a good discount.The controls work great the games are ported well and they look great i would recommend this collection for any traditional gamer or arcade fan.
