Digital Press - Classic Video Games
Go get it! Not only is Arcade Party Pak a welcome addition to a party, but it’s also a must-have for your classic gaming collection!
With a thirty-dollar price tag, Arcade Party Pack comes to just about five bones a game and that's hard to argue with. Even Toobin' and Super Sprint are worth having for nostalgia value, if nothing else and the rest of these games are retro collection must-haves. As far as classic games go, these really are some of the best.
If you're a dyed-in-the-wool retro fan, or if you were a fan of any of the included games, then Arcade Party Pak is exactly what you're looking for. Otherwise, it's strictly a renter. Today's gamers might enjoy the look into gaming's past, but it takes a specific kind of party to get the most out of this Pak.
But as a compilation pack, the majority of the games are quality product. It's not a stunning, bowl-you-over collection, but it's a good value for the buck and another disk for collectors.
Midway is back with yet another collection of old arcade games. This collection provides classics from the mid-'80s to 1990. On paper, this collection looks unstoppable, but some little control problems and other emulation inaccuracies keep it from reaching its full potential.
The Video Game Critic
Arcade Party Pack also features interesting interviews with the game makers, and allows you to customize the game options. The dual-analog controller and multi-tap are supported. This isn't a "must have" compilation, but arcade fans will appreciate it.
Wäre nicht Klax dabei, könntet ihr diese Compilation getrost vergessen. Wenn schon Oldies, dann bitte schön bekannte Klassiker und nicht Zeug, das schon damals kein Mensch gekannt, geschweige denn gespielt hat. Wieder mal also die Warnung: Alle Next-Gen-Zocker sollten hiervon die Finger lassen. Aber auch Retro-Fans bekommen mit dem Party Pak mit Ausnahme von Klax keinen wirklich guten Einblick in die Geschichte der Atari/Williams/Bally-Midway geboten.
Insgesamt sei angemerkt, dass diese Sammlung allenfalls für Fans von solchen Oldies interessant ist. Alle anderen Zocker sollten lieber die Finger davon lassen.
