The Video Game Critic
Namco really got back on track with its third collection, which features a number of bonafide classic arcade hits. Galaxian, Ms. Pac-man, and Dig Dug need no introduction - these games are incredibly fun and madly addicting.
As to be expected, the graphics are archaic and the sound is positively grating on all six games, but both these aspects will no doubt enamour nostalgic fans. On the whole, the collection is a definite improvement on the previous two in the series, with enhanced presentation (see boxout) and a decent set of games. Those who haven’t played these titles in the arcades before might be confused by all the fuss, and probably won’t be able to “get into” the games as readily as players who encountered these gems before in their local ‘greasy caffs’ of yesteryear.

Nostalgisch veranlagte Shoot‘em-Up- Fans werden glasige Augen bekommen, denn auf der dritten Namco Museumsausgabe ist endlich auch eine unbegrenzt spielbare Version von Galaxian vertreten. Alle fünf Titel stammen aus verschiedenen Genres und bieten zusammen eine ganze Menge Spielspaß. Insgesamt gesehen, beinhaltet die dritte Kollektion etwas interessantere Automaten-Umsetzungen als der Vorgänger. Pausenlose Action wird garantiert und für ein kleines Spielchen zwischendurch sind diese Oldies geradezu prädestiniert. Wie bei den vorangegangenen Teilen könnt Ihr auf Wunsch ein virtuelles Museum besuchen, in dem ihr jede nur erdenkliche Information über Euren Lieblingsoldie abrufen könnt. Für bedingungslose Klassikersammler ist auch Museum Vol. 3 eine lohnenswerte Anschaffung.

The memories will flood back when you load up Namcos little box of nostalgia but the appeal will be short lived as each game has a lastability of only a few hours. I cannot imagine myself sitting up 'til the late hours trying to reach the final level of PacMan but I shall always return for an hour of Galaxians. The game score is for memories and not up against Tomb Raider.

I guess that those old game that we used to play just weren't that good after all.
The bottom line is that although this disc contains a few pieces of history, the nostalgia factor wears off quick. The museum is a nice touch but does nothing to add play longevity (and the load time is horrendous). Be prepared to put this collection back into the time capsule after a few days of play.
If you've already bought the first two volumes, you may want to continue your collection for completeness' sake. If you don't care about owning all five volumes, you may be better off leaving this one out. In the end, this volume is a real letdown, and from the looks of the titles left, the series should be all downhill from here.
Mega Fun
Fazit: Die dritte Ausgabe der Namco Serie bietet kein Kaufargument, wenn man die Vorgänger bereits besitzt.
