Overall, PopCap Arcade Vol. 1 is a great compilation of casual games the whole family can enjoy. However, it is held back from "must have" status by its lack of any significant advantage over its currently free-to-play-online brethren. If you're a casual gaming fan who's never played these titles before, then by all means, go ahead and pick this up. However, if you've already experienced these games' goodness before, you won't be missing anything by skipping this outing.
