    The pre-release of the arcade classic, which was showing its age in 1991 is BACK! Of course the graphics and gameplay are awful, but you should already know that, so it shouldn't have anything to do with the overall score. Should it? Actually it does, as your paying 800 MSP for a arcade game. 400 MSP would be a more justified price as it is not that much bigger or more complex , then theThe pre-release of the arcade classic, which was showing its age in 1991 is BACK!

Actually it does, as your paying 800 MSP for a arcade game. 400 MSP would be a more justified price as it is not that much bigger or more complex , then the games 'Gameroom' provides. I would recommend playing the trial, as you will probably get all the nostalgia you'll need. Trust me after about 4 playthroughs you will never touch this again. Achievements 7/10 a fairly easy 200 points and makes you do a variety of objectives. Could be done in 2-5 hours, depending on skill. The reason why this game gets a 5/10, is because it is really good fun/nostalgia for the first 30 minutes- 1 hour. But after that you will, no doubt get bored. And is it worth £6.50 in MSP for that? Seriously just play the trial. It would be looking at a much higher review if it did what HALO CE did. Classic mode and remastered. Expand

    Fun, but don't expect longevity - without the need to feed coins into it, you'll be through it in half an hour. [May 2012, p.87]

    At 400 points, we'd call it a steal, and online co-op is a very nice bonus. At 800, though, we're just not that fussed. [Issue#83, p.105]

    Nostalgic fun that's aged badly. [Apr 2012, p.105]
