Summary

Old-school meets new-school

The Good

Game & Watch Gallery 4 features a large number of Classic Game & Watch games which are addicting on their own. Add to that the revamped modes with very similar game mechanics but beautiful graphics and you've got a great collection of mini-games which can keep you busy for a long time. I like the idea of working towards a goal and this game satiates that idea by awarding you with a star for every 200 points you score in any game. These stars are then used to unlock information about G&W games not included, sound bytes to listen too, and, most importantly, more games.

The Bad

The game is pretty repetitive if played too much. Also, it can be pretty tough to get all five stars in a mini game since you only get 3 misses and its game over. It is very frustrating when you have 978 points and you get the 5th star at 1000, you look away for a split second and you missed a person with your fire-net.

The Bottom Line

This is a splendid collection of old-school G&W games like Chef, Octopus, Fire, Donkey Kong Jr. etc. all complete with a revamped, Modern counterpart. This is a fun game to kill time with while waiting for a table at a restaurant, flying, etc. There may not be much depth to the game, but it is enough to keep you entertained for a while.
