This game is, more than anything else, a celebration of gaming as a whole. Beginning with a simple space-invaders style arcade shooter, the game gives you a series of challenges to complete, and as you complete them, you unlock new games spanning multiple genres from racing to RPGs and platformers. Each new game brings improved graphics and sound paralleling the progression of early gaming. Every one of these games would have been worth the price of admission if they were on the NES. In addition to playing the games, there is a bunch of gaming lore included through dialog and fictional gaming magazines included. At one point, your in-game persona tries to play a game and the cartridge doesn't work until you blow into the DS microphone. It's attention to detail like that that really makes the game shine. There is a sequel in Japan, so please buy this game to give them incentive to localize it!

Relive your 80's gaming childhoodPosted .I would recommend this to a friend
The game brings back a lot of classic gaming, both the good and the bad. One on hand, the story+challenge system keeps you involved in playing all the games, while in most classic game collections, you play one or two for a few minutes and then turn it off. On the other, you'll have to play some games that you might not like to finish the storyline. Reading fictional game magazines as they arrive for articles and tips/codes is great.
