    Relive the Legacy: Experience a blast from Blizzard's past! The Blizzard® Arcade Collection brings three of our classic console games to modern platforms and new audiences. INCLUDED GAMES:

    • Blackthorne®: As mercenary captain Kyle Blackthorne, traverse an alien planet, liberate the Androthi people, and claim your destiny.

    • The Lost Vikings®: Help three Vikings—Erik, Baleog, and Olaf—overcome challenging platforms and puzzles to find their way back home.

    • Rock N Roll Racing®: Rock out in the raddest vehicular destruction derby this side of 1993. RNRR is back with original rock and metal soundtrack hits plus a few new surprises.

    LEVEL UP THE LEGACY:

    The Blizzard Arcade Collection contains two different Original Editions of each game plus a new Definitive Edition!

    • The Original Editions are the games as you remember them but with new quality of life improvements included—like the ability to set custom keybindings, rewind your gameplay up to 10 seconds, save and load your game as well as watch playthroughs of Blackthorne and The Lost Vikings (and then jump in to play at any point). Improvements may vary by game and game edition.

    Although it's light on actual games for the price, the Blizzard Arcade Collection shows off an intense amount of love for the included games. While the creation of the definitive editions of these games is welcome and the result does a great job of matching it up with modern standards, the inclusion of the different console editions is a great forward-thinking move for game preservation. The inclusion of lots of supplementary material is excellent for those who are interested in the history of these titles, and the games stand the test of time rather well. It also helps that the titles remain fun even today. Whether you're discovering these games for the first time or want to play them again, this is a compilation that's worth checking out.

    An impeccable collection, capable of telling those magical pre-warcraft years that defined Blizzard identity.

    The Blizzard Arcade Collection isn't a perfect compilation by any means, but for the advancements that Blizzard made on some of these games without compromising the old-school visuals make it a must-own. The Museum is also a fun look back at the making of some of these old gems. Rock N Roll Racing by itself is more than worth the price of admission, but The Lost Vikings and Blackthorne are such unique time capsules of old-school Blizzard design that they're worth experiencing.

    The Blizzard Arcade Collection is a great little compilation of some lesser known Blizzard games. The additional features such as rewind and save states, when available at least, are delightful improvements, and the definitive editions work amazingly well. I’m also impressed with such a great behind the scenes section with a lot of interesting content. But most of this smorgasbord is par for the course, and I expect a little more out of Blizzard. It falls under the competent category, rather than revolutionary.

    This is a decent collection to discover some of the Blizzard classics. It’s missing many features found in similar compilations, but at least these games are now available on modern platforms.

    Some people will find the price a bit steep, and they probably won't be wrong. Yet, apart from the drastic selection of this compilation, Blizzard Arcade Collection has been the subject of real care.

    Blizzard delivers us the perfect “Operation Nostalgia” with three titles that made history. Rock N Roll Racing is the real value of the compilation, followed by Lost Vikings, which aged graciously. We sadly cannot say the same for Blackthorne, klunky in gameplay and controls.

    I would give more, but there are some issues with loading saved games on Rock'n roll racing.
