    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]

    If you're after a nostalgia trip this is perfect. [Apr 2009, p.80]
  3. 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.
  4. 14 out of the 16 games are winners, offering great value for money. Like most people, I never had the chance to play these games the first time around so it is a real treat to see what I missed.
  5. Sure, it lacks some key games, (where's Super Baseball 2020?), but overall, this is one anthology you shouldn't miss.
  6. 77
    The sheer number of games on the disc combined with the cheap price tag makes it a steal to both classic gamers and newcomers.
  7. What the collection lacks in extras it makes up for in value, as there is no better (or cheaper) way to get your SNK fix on the Wii.
  8. So here we have a sixteen game collection for thirty bucks, that won’t take up a lot of space on your Wii, packs in some good games, and whose only problems are various other locations to play these games and a bit of hoop jumping for some of them.

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.
