Midway's Greatest only misses its mark by not aiming high enough. A little more polish would have elevated this cart beyond what you can get out of a Javascript emulator. Still, nothing can take away the thrill of surviving one more level of Robotron, swapping the Spy Hunter car for a boat, or wiping out an entire screen full of baddies with a smart bomb in Defender. If you love old-school gameplay or you're just looking for an excuse to try on those old parachute pants, Midway's got your fix.

Obviously, this cartridge is not going to wow gamers who are used to massive polygon counts and 50-hour storylines. But if the thought of parachute pants makes you feel all warm and fuzzy, you could do worse than trying to relive your glory days with this title.

If you're an N64 owner who wants to get a blast from the past, this collection is definitely worth having. The gameplay isn't nearly as deep, the graphics aren't anywhere near as good, and some of the sounds are just plain awful by today's standards, but hey who cares when you're saving the universe once again?

I've got a few gripes with this compilation of classic Midway hits. First, the presentation -- it's just awful. A horribly put together 3D interface and, save for a really fun Trivia Mode, not much else to offer in addition to the games themselves. But worse, a few of the titles, namely Defender and Spy Hunter, slowdown for no reason whatsoever and that's simply inexcusable for a cart of this type. However, at the end of the day this game does offer up six spectacular classics nearly intact and in one or two cases actually takes advantage of the Nintendo 64's controller too. If you're dying to get your hands on the oldies but goodies, for only $30 this purchase might just be a wise one. But it's not going to blow you away with flashy bells and whistles.

Alle sechs Spiele sind zwar schon um die zwanzig Jahre alt, haben aber wenig von ihrem Reiz verloren. Trotz des sehr primitiven Gameplays machen sie immer noch einen Heidenspaß und haben unter Fans schon Kultstatus erreicht. Nichtsdestotrotz hinken sie der Zeit spürbar hinterher. Wahrscheinlich bekommst du einen Schrecken, wenn du die veraltete Grafik siehst, die sich noch dazu sehr langsam bewegt. Andererseits war die Grafik seinerzeit topmodern und so kommt sie wenigstens authentisch rüber. Natürlich kann man sich an dieser Stelle auch über den Sound streiten, den man eigentlich nicht Sound nennen darf. Aber ansonsten ist diese Sammlung durchaus zu empfehlen, wenn man der guten alten Zeit mal ein wenig nachtrauern möchte. Denn mit Sicherheit wird in zehn Jahren auch über unsere aktuellen Spiele gelacht und sie werden in irgendwelchen Kellerregalen verstauben. Außer ein Entwickler wie Midway gräbt sie wieder aus..

If classic arcade games are your thing, and you haven't already picked up these games in another pack for the PlayStation, PC, or Dreamcast, Midway's N64 pack is worth taking a look at. But in the end, the emulated collection simply can't stand up to other collections, let alone the arcade originals.
