This is definitely a nostalgia trip.

Even if you have the other museum titles it's worthwhile to pick this one up. Galaga 88 is the reason why you need this game. Galaga 88 is worth the price of admission alone. Also packaged are some other great titles (although almost all of them are already in other museum titles). You get:

Pac-Man

Ms. Pac-Man

Pac-Mania

Galaga

Galaga 88

Galaxian

Dig Dug

Pole Position

Pole Position II

Rolling Thunder

Rally X

Bosconian

Dragon Spirit

Sky Kid

Xevious

Mappy

Most of these games are great. A few of them I don't play very much namely Rally X (just never got into this one I guess) Pac-Mania and Mappy. A lot of people don't like Sky Kid, but I love that game.

If you don't have any of the Namco Museum games then you definitely need to pick this up!

There are a few downsides though. The games are great of coarse and they're all restored to their original goodness, but Namco sure didn't do much to celebrate their 50th anniversary. No history, no interviews, none of that. The only *bonus* you get is you can unlock Pac-Mania and Galaga 88 if you can get a high enough score in Pac-Man and Ms Pac Man and if you get a high score in Galaga. The scores really aren't very hard to reach though so you should unlock them within the first couple hours of play. I really wish that Namco would have done something to make this release special but they didn't. But that's okay, i'm over it :)

In closing *ahem*galaga88*ahem* I would like to say *galaga88* that this game is *galaga88* definitely worth *galaga88* the price *cough*galaga88*cough*

4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia In A Box September 16, 2005
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I sometimes wonder why when it often comes to video games, many of the younger generation, doesn't simply appreciate the moments when the classics seem to matter. Maybe they haven't witnessed those powers back in the 80's the arcades used to maintain. Nevertheless, Namco was one of the very few coompany that have still been a presence into the video market. While there have been classics like Donkey Kong, Centipede, and the legendary eater Pac Man, those classics keep coming back all over again. A few years ago, Namco made a compilation that was absolutely breathless, and now it has been restored.

Namco Museum 50th Anniversary Arcade collection for the Playstation 2, is a compilation of over a dozen of the most enjoyable classic video arcade games you could ever imagine. The collection maintains it worth in quarters. It includes some of the best from the past including Pac Man, Ms. Pac Man, Dig Dug, the classic aerial shooter Xevious, and the fast and sometimes furious Pole Position II. The menu also hits the mark quite graciously, by bringing some great classic pop songs of the 80's into the mix including She Drives Me Crazy by the Fine Young Cannibals, and the one-hit wonder Dexy's Midnight Runners classic Come On Eileen. The games remain just as infectious and exciting as they were back then, and have been restored and remastered quite beautifully. Although you don't get the specialized arrangement versions of Pac Man and Did Dug like you did from the previous edition, it doesn't take away any of the fun at all.

This nostalgia in a box, the Namco Museum 50th Anniversary Arcade Collection for teh Playstation 2, is a must have for older and younger gamers alike, who just care about the classics, without the expense of gobbling away money to the machines. I really do recommend this classic gameplay for anybody old or young alike.

3.0 out of 5 stars Games are great, but presentation is lacking... June 18, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The games included in this set are great, but the process of navigating the menus and saving your data is VERY annoying. TOO MANY LOADING SCREENS! And besides that, the loading screens take WAY too long for a PS2 title that is this simple (it's not exactly God of War, programming-wise). You sit through a LONG loading screen while the main menu comes up. Then you select your game. Another LONG loading screen. You decide you want to switch games, so you exit the one you are playing. Another LONG loading screen. Plus, let's say you've gotten really good at one of the games, to the point where you're really competitive about your high scores. You turn on the game, you screw up and die on the first screen. "D'oh!" you think to yourself, "I gotta start this one over!" But you can't. You CAN'T reset the game, there's no such option. You have to play through all your lives until you get game over, and THEN re-start. Why? Because the only other option is to select "EXIT GAME," sit through the #$%!%$$!ing loading screen again while you're taken back to the main menu, then RE-SELECT the game, SIT THROUGH THE @#$#$ING LOADING SCREEN AGAIN, and then start over.

Also, you would think a game like this would autosave your high scores, such as other titles from the "anthology genre," like Capcom Classics, Midway Arcade Treasures, or Atari Anthology. But not on this one!!! If you set a new top 10 score or high score, you have to exit the game, sit through the loading screen, and then go into the options screen, and save the scores for that INDIVIDUAL game.
