4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia In A Box, September 16, 2005
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Namco Museum: 50th Anniversary (Video Game)
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.
