Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
THE SHORT: The ridiculously cheap price is worth spending on some of these games on their own, let alone in a double digit package. But while most of the games run great, there are some slight issues here and there that make some of these games not quite arcade-perfect.

THE LONG: I love Mortal Kombat II. Adore it. I always have, and though the SNES version was great in 1994, no console has ever had an accurate version of it. That's why this was an exciting release- it promised arcade accurate versions of this game as well as a bunch of other good ones. And if you're just thinking about getting this now, then you didn't have to go through the debacle of having the original Mortal Kombat removed from the package and thrown onto the more cost-prohibitive MK: Deception.

So I checked out message boards and waited for the game, and once it came out and I chatted with others, I noticed a disturbing trend: no one console had a release of this collection that was entirely flawless. The PS2 supposedly had trouble with, I believe, Hard Drivin', and the Gamecube had sound problems or something. The Xbox version was supposed to be flawed in some way too, but I honestly can't remember what that was supposed to have been. All I know is that I was a devoted MKII fan to notice some fanboyish inaccuracies. I won't go into them all here, and while there aren't a lot they are noticeable: stuff like flickering shadows when a character jumps, and screams that go on past death when a character lands in the Pit, etc.

But for every thing the programmers somehow messed up, there are ten it gets right. MKII, as with all others on the disc except for the somewhat muffled MK3, has sound so crisp I'd forgotten how much better it was than past console offerings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Arcade Heaven November 22, 2004
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Hey, I still play the first Arcade Treasures all the time. So I was positively delighted to learn of this incredible new collection.

Arcade Treasures 2 is a true sequel, in a sense, in that most of the games are from the late 80's and early 90's. There are a few exception to this, such as Wizard of Wor and Timber. Anyway, these later games are typically more complex and HARDER than the games on the first collection. This is a good thing, because it will likely take you awhile to master them. Which makes this disc not only a fun-filled blast of nostalgia, but ensures re-playability for quite some time. And that's why I find myself rating Volume 2 higher than the first. Sure, the previous disc arguably has more true "classic" titles. But I think I'll be spending more time with this one.

Favorite games: Mortal Kombat 2 & 3 (now if only I could remember how to do all those fatalities...); NARC (best 2-player co-op action game ever); Wizard of Wor (for the funky early-80's speech synthesis); Total Carnage (truth in advertising...this game could cause a freakin' panic attack); Timber (I admit, I wasn't familiar with this one, but it's really charming and fun).

I only hope other game companies will realize there is still a market out there for retro coin-op games (Nintendo, are you listening?) and give us more TREASURES, please!

5.0 out of 5 stars Arcade Treasures 2 is a Keeper October 17, 2004
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Just like its predecessor this collection of arcade titles makes you dizzy with nostalgia and gives you 20 immediately playable games to keep you going for hours. The emphasis is on fighting games including : Mortal Kombat 2 & 3, Primal Rage (Dinosaurs fighting), and Pit Fighter. Also included are Gauntlet 2 (4 player D&D style shooter), Spy Hunter 2 (drive and shoot), Xybots, NARC (shooter), APB(drive), Cyberball 2072(futuristic football), Timber(arcade woodsman game), Wizard of Wor (fast paced Bezerk type game), Xenophobe (3 people at once shooter), Arch Rivals (NBA 2 on 2), Rampage World Tour (sequel to the monsters destroy cities), Kozmik Krooz'r (space shooter), Championship Sprint, Hard Drivin, and Wacko (puzzle shooter). It's all worth it just to have Mortal Kombat in its arcade form - insanely fast and hard. The thing you have to remember is these games were meant to eat quarters, so average play time may be 2-3 minutes until you learn all the tricks. But wow are they fun - like having an entire arcade jammed into your Gamecube. Awesome collection at a great price!

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm not a big fan of fighting games, but there are some classics on here like Mortal Kombat 2 & 3.

The games that make it for me are Timber, Cyberball, Hard Drivin', and Wizard Of Wor. I'd pay $20 just for those 3... ;-)

The disc has 20 games, so for a buck a game you can't go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Midway Arcade Treasures is a pot of gold! October 20, 2004
By Mr. T
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After having bought Midway Arcade Treasures 1, when volume 2 was released, I drove to my favoritevideo game store and bought it. It's great fun playing Mortal Kombat 2-3, Total Carnage, Arch Rivals, and the rest are awesome reproductions doneon the Cube. You'd be crazy not to buy this collection of games for $20.00. Playing this game on rainy days is pure ecstasy, you'll go back in time when Arcades were all the rage. I suggest youdrive to your nearest video game store or buy it online at Amazon.com right now!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed bag of hidden gems, old favorites, and pure crap October 3, 2013
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Midway Arcade Treasures 2 is the second in trilogy of 3 titles that hoped to Midway's wealth of titles to the masses without having to pay an arm and a leg for pricy arcade cabinets. The games included in this entry are as follows:

-A.P.B.
-Arch Rivals
-Championship Sprint
-Cyberball 2072
-Gauntlet II
-Hard Drivin'
-Kozmik Krooz'r
-Mortal Kombat II
-Mortal Kombat III
-NARC
-Pit Fighter
-Rampage World Tour
-Spy Hunter II
-Timber
-Total Carnage
-Wacko
-Wizard Of Wor
-Xenophobe
and
-Xybots

The main draw, of course, is Mortal Kombat II & III. I was omitted for completely arbitrary reasons so that it could be "exclusive" to Mortal Kombat Deception. In the curiosities section is NARC (An ultra-violent shooter and one of the earliest digitized games that looks fantastic for 1988), A.P.B. (A overhead police simulator that feels like a precursor to the GTA 1 & 2), Hard Drivin' (a polygonal racing game), and Arch Rivals (something of a precursor to NBA Jam & Hangtime). In the hidden gems bin we have Wizard Of Wor (Pacman meets Starship Troopers), and Gauntlet II (an overhead arena shooter with a sword and sorcery theme)

Everything else ranges from so-so, to mediocre, to purely questionable quality, but then again this is just one man's opinion. The overall product is good with extras like documentaries with the various game creators, but feels consistently more and more dull during repeat playthroughs.

At the USED price of $4.39, I'd say that it's definitely worth a look if you're into the whole "retro gaming" scene or just want to rekindle some old fashioned nostalgia
