Summary

Here's another blast from the past.

The Good

With the second collection of games, it only gets better! There's only 21 games in this collection but there are a ton of awesom ones on it. You can relive such classics as Guantlet, Mortal Combat 2 and 3 or NARC. The AI is still great and the graphics in most of the games is better than the first collection. The sound is wonderful and so is the overall gameplay.

The Bad

I didn't like that it was rated M because of NARC. It's a game from the 80's and the graphics aren't that great but it's rated M for Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, and Intense Violence. I mean, you kill the bad guys (your a cop) and you confiscate their drugs. Yet they rated it M.

The Bottom Line

Midway Arcade Treasures is the second excellent collection of classics produced by Midway. You can relive games like NARC, Mortal Kombat 2 and 3 and much more. It's a great action packed collection that any arcade fan should have.
