SlartiB.Sep 30, 2006Great game! Love the classics, hope they keep coming.
HughJ.Sep 30, 2006If you're over 30 and remember video arcades, this is a welcome throwback to those days. The graphical and sound updates are nicely done and do not detract from the classic gameplay. Achievements and online leaderboards make the game well worth the modest asking price. Bashers of classic games or people who say "why play oldies on a modern system?" should keep their low scores to themselves -- this kind of game just isn't for them, and they should stick to the conventional packages in shrinkwrap on DVD.… Expand
AdrianHarversonJun 1, 2008An old game requiring old style playing ie it's fairly punishing if aproached like you would a console game.Simple enough design but nothing you can really fault with how it plays.One of my most played games of the early eighties and the addition of enhanced graphic mode makes this look a little more the part.
Frustrating if you're not any good at the older arcade games but worthy of your time if you give it some effort.… Expand
AndymanSep 17, 2006Scramble was crap in 1981, and 25 years have only enhanced its stench. Oddly enough, the game spawned several clones back then, although I have no clue why. Its gameplay is extremely weak and incredibly frustrating, and the game has exactly no replay value. Sure, Konami has added small updates like they've done with Frogger and Time Pilot, but there's no cleaning up this pile of trash. Grab the Trial version if you're curious, but I guarantee you won't be buying this one.… Expand
