    Younger gamers out there may not see the appeal, but this nostalgia-driven collection is a must have for gamers who remember placing quarters on cabinets to call next game.

    Midway Arcade Origins is a collection of old games that does not fit very well in the actual generation. A product only for true retro game lovers.

    The Midway Arcade Origins pack gives modern gamers the opportunity to play through a fantastic collection of some of the best arcade titles, but for those who are used to playing these games from an arcade cabinet, the nostalgic feel may be dampened by awkward controls.

    Midway Arcade Origins is a nice compilation of good old classics, but the lack of pretty important games (Paperboy?) is a shame. The collection is still interesting for Midway's fans, due to the presence of great old arcade machines into the disc.

    If you're ok with its price, then you can bring home 31 pieces of the history of video games, pretty well adapted to HDTVs, with trophies/achievements, ranking boards and no loading screens. However, we miss some kind of information about the titles included.

    The biggest bummer for retro enthusiasts is this package's complete lack of special features.

    If you're looking for history lesson, you're only getting part of the story. And if you are stuck with this game because your parents picked it up on a whim, well, at least you can score some easy Achievements.

It doesn't help that the controls are almost non existent for most and just an exercise in frustration. I wish I hadn't bothered and left the good memories of these games as just that. Expand
