  1. Bitchin' fun, dude! Takes you right back to the roaring road-rage days of the arcade.
  2. Whatever else is coming, you'd best believe I'll be there with bells on... and you should as well.

    "Rush 2049" is the headliner of this year's pack, and even if it was released by itself it would still be worth the budget price that the Midway Arcade Treasures is known for.
  4. For younger gamers weaned on more current games such as "Burnout," a rental may be all you need to sate your curiosity of how things were before bump mapping and light bloom.
  5. So many of the games included here relied so heavily on custom arcade hardware that they lose much of their appeal in the translation.
  6. In some cases, I'd have preferred to see the home console versions being ported over. Off Road Thunder for example, was a much better game on the Dreamcast than it was in the arcade.
  7. It's almost as if Midway has run out of retro games to repackage, apart from some crappy old driving titles it found in the back of a filing cabinet that weren't good enough to make the first two Treasures titles.

    Although the reviews are mixed, I thought this was the company's best retro offering so far. Sure, two games were altered drastically from their arcade ports (SF Rush via sound, Offroad Thunder runs at 20, not 30 or 60 like it should), but this is still a great collection that should be with every arcade racing gamer's collection, particularly if you were a fan of any arcade racing game made at or after the time of OutRun. Also, it works amazingly well with a MadCatz MC2 racing wheel albeit a weird control scheme for Race Drivin'. Expand
