Finally, we have Robotron 2084, which Crave tried (rather unsuccessfully) to remake for the N64. Robotron plays like the precursor to the Smash TV that it is, at least in my mind. Maybe you remember Smash TV from the Super NES days? It stands to go down as one of the great "shoot everything in sight" games in the history of gaming. Or maybe I just remember it that way. It just goes to show that nostalgia goes a long way in saying what was good--and what wasn't.

Midway's Greatest Arcade Hits Volume 1 is a decent collection of four great classic games and two so-so ones, but the lack of extras and the various minor annoyances prevent me from recommending it outright. If you remember these games from their glory days and can't wait to play them again, then by all means pick up this collection. Otherwise, give the online versions a whirl to determine whether or not you want to pump one-hundred and sixty quarters into this sucker.

Wer schon damals sein gesamtes Taschengeld in den nimmersatten Münzschächten dieser Spielautomaten verlor, wird eine Zeit lang Spaß an Midways Spielesammlung haben – immerhin könnt ihr nun u.a. vor jedem Spiel festlegen, mit wie viel Leben etc. ihr euch in die verschiedenen 8-Bit-Abenteuer stürzt. Alle anderen warten auf den Tag, an dem mehrere Dutzend dieser Klassiker aufgepeppt mit multimedialen Inhalten (z.B. Interviews mit den Programmierern usw.) ihren Weg auf die Datenspeicher heutiger Massenmedien finden. Für den geforderten Preis bekommt der Spieler meiner Meinung nach einfach zu wenig.
Frankly, this sucks big time. Fair enough, we’d expect to see something like this on the PlayStation (and indeed, it’s already been out) but on the Dreamcast, it’s a total abomination. If you buy it, you’ll burn in the fires of Hell… and that’s a promise.
