  1. Not only do you get some of the most stunningly playable titles from gaming history, with a simple and easy way to select them, but also a wide selection of bonus features with which to keep real retro fanatics' juices flowing.
  2. Trips down memory lane have peaks and valleys, but this one is definitely worth taking. [Jan 2006, p.138]
  3. For anyone with the inclination to be educated in how games used to consist of pure gameplay magic, or for those who wish to revisit their gaming pasts, Taito Legends is a superior collection of titles, some of which are truly classics in the absolute sense of the word.
  4. 75
    If you have fond memories of the arcade, have a sibling that stinks at games or just want a solid collection of games then Taito Legends is for you.
  5. The lack of light gun support drags down Operation Wolf, but with games like Elevator Action and Bubble Bobble on board, Taito Legends offers good classic arcade action at a budget price.
  6. 70
    It does a good job of emulating 29 games, but a lot of these games are less than exciting inclusions. Meanwhile, some genuinely classic Taito games are left out.
  7. Unless your taste in classics runs on the obscure side (hello, "Super Qix"), Taito Legends might be best left in the vault. [Jan 2006, p.71]
