  1. Have you been-there-and-done-that with the previous Namco collections? Raided the MAME tomb? Been stung by other retro collections? If so, there's no need to bother with this one.
  2. Instead of being a true retro experience to educate modern gamers on gaming's short but sweet history, this compilation feels more like a way to cheat gamers out of $20 by exploiting nostalgia.
