Tecmo Classic Arcade isn't entirely loaded with winners, and some might question the bump in price up to the $30 range, but classic gamers will want to jump right in just to endure "Tecmo Bowl" in its finest form, as well as "Bomb Jack" and a few other favorites.
Of the eleven games in this collection, there are only two or three that have aged gracefully. The rest of the games don't quite hold up. What's even more disappointing is the omission of a few of Tecmo's more popular games like "Ninja Gaiden."
The emulation is spot-on, but the package is lacking in heavy polish and fun. And it's ten bucks more than other classic arcade packs with far fewer titles on the disc. Cut that price by half and maybe we'll talk.
But retro compilations are practically a dime a dozen these days, and next to the likes of "Namco Museum Battle Collection" and "Capcom Classics Collection," the games enshrined here show both their age and a general lack of inspiration.
Most of these games could be replicated on the GBA, certainly the DS. There's no reason to get this package especially for the Xbox. It's like slumming to waste a great console on these old hackneyed games.
One of the few collections on the market that I can honestly say isn't worth picking up. The majority of the games found within the package are bland to awful and the few gems included aren't really all that fantastic.
