    games are classic,need more classic arcade bundles.whats good is with this bundle is its arcade style,hard not too easy,makes it competitive,what I don't like is theres no continuation in the games,as off road supersprint,what happens is the computer gets soo good after being defeated 4 to 5 times,you never can finish all the courses unless you activate a second controller to reset the computer.this is where Nintendo was actually better then the arcade,as Nintendo you could continuously play and save all your records accordingly,kept me more interested.i like the competitiveness with continuation,take the good with the bad I give it an average score.

    So pleased with game(s). Showing my kids the golden & Silver age of arcade games. Only downside is that many of these cabinet games used trackballs, steering wheels, or different controls other than a PS3 controller, so it takes some getting used to, but better than nothing! My younger son really enjoys them! (Especially "Rampart" & "Tapper") I've always loved "Cyberball." I would give up my firstborn for a "Cyberball" cabinet for my game room. (Well, sometimes maybe... Teenagers!)

    I grew up on these games so i was excited to see i could get this. I loved being able to play all the old games, but quickly learned that i got bored fairly quickly, which makes me sad, because i really remember liking these games, but I guess at this point in my life, a little goes a long way, and they no longer hold my attention the way they used to. that said, it is an excellent game to have and play, albeit occasionally.

    MOST GAMES HARD TO PLAY

    Most games hard to play and control; some impossible to play and control. All games had low-quality graphics of 1980's. Most "classics" aren't as fun to play as arcade players of the 1980's might remember. I give "Midway Arcade Origins" one star, but I still enjoyed a couple. Save the $20, and wait for better (more modern) games to hit "Greatest Hits."

    I love most of the games in this collection. The interface is simple but fast and easy to navigate to change games. The options for screen scaling and smoothing are nice. Spent hours with a friend playing through these old arcade classics. Smash TV is one of my favorites of all time.

    A lot of fun to reminisce on my childhood. Many of my favorite childhood games are included such as Rampage and Xenophobe. The graphics are exactly like the old arcade systems. Just like going to the arcades of tue 80s. Provides for a great time with my kids (and my lifelong buddy).

    This has several classics that I wanted to share with my kids. There are some games I wasn't familiar with but the instructions are simple enough to figure out. The controls can be a bit touchy but with some patience and practice in comes together.

    Went for this collection for Smash TV and got more than we bargained for! Total Carnage was a perfect alternative (sequel) for our family nights!! Love these two games. And the rest are the icing on the cake. A must have for classic family fun.

    This title brought back good memories of times spent in the arcade, but the gameplay seemed to lack some of the controllability of the original consoles. Still fun to play the titles that cost me so many quarters.

    Sadly i thought that these games would be more like the real things. They are in that the games are very nostalgic but the play is not quite right. Nice try though.

    This game brings back some of the great games of the 80's. Older players will enjoy as well as the younger crowd.
