    Although using the analog stick or d-pad doesn't compare to the arcade joysticks of old, I appreciate being able to tweak the number of lives you get for each game. [Oct 2005, p.128]

    It's hard to fault the small roster (14 games) when so many of them are true "classics." [Nov 2005, p.124]
  3. I suggest if you are looking for something different, before the Xbox 360 comes out with ultra-realistic graphics step back in time to a time where games were much more simplified but still fun. Also, for $20 you can't go wrong.
  4. With all the gaming compilations coming out lately M.A.M.E. has some serious competition, and I have another classic gaming collection to add to my shelf.

    I expected more games, but the ones that are here are good quality. The 5 second loading screens are ridiculous considering the games I expected more games, but the ones that are here are good quality. The 5 second loading screens are ridiculous considering the games probably 2% of the xboxes power. This package could also use some background info on these classic games. But as it is, I still think this is good value, as long as you don't own any namco museums from the past. It's also a complete rip off if you ever bought a previous namco museum. In that respect, I feel like Namco is milking it. Full Review »
