Williams made games for hard-core arcade gamers and this collection proves it. Setting aside "Bubbles", a misguided effort to be cute, the collection is 2-D, testosterone-driven mayhem, with titles that gamers of that era still revere: Defender, Stargate, Robotron, Sinistar, and Joust. The emulation is perfect -- you can even view the operator statistics and set the arcade's welcome message. Only regret: this disc pre-dates the Sony dual-shock analog controller, whose two joysticks would have been *perfect* for Robotron.

Oh boy, this has got to be the one of the coolest cd's I've ever bought for my playstation console! All the awesome games I used to love playing at the local arcades right here in my living room, without dropping 300 quarters a week. :) I forgot just how much fun I used to have playing these games.
This cd features ROBOTRON, JOUST, DEFENDER 1, DEFENDER 2, SINISTAR, AND BUBBLE BOBBLE, all perfectly emulated! Even the original "bugs", original sounds, etc...they're all there! "Arcades Greatest Hits" is surely an appropriate title! You should also check out "Arcades Greatest Hits 2" which features MORE incredible retro 80's games we all still love.
Conclusion: If you loved these games in the 80's, you'll love them even more today! Especially, when you don't have to keep inserting quarters all the time into the machine. :) Don't delay, buy this cd today! You won't be dissapointed.

Yes, I bought this game for Sinistar and Sinistar only. Though I was pleasently surprised when I played some of the other titles. This is my review of all of the games and emulations.

Sinistar: An awesome space themed game. Your goal is to mine crystals to make Sini-bombs by shooting asteroids which plague the screen. This can be slightly annoying, because enemies can steal the crystals, and you can easily miss the crystals by making a sharp turn. Graphics are awesome for the time, while sound effects are just as awesome. 5 out of 5. Beware, Coward.

Joust: The classic Buzzard-smashing game. Your goal is to smash other knights on buzzards by being higher in the air than them. This is the only game where you need two remotes to play with another person. Controls are good, gameplay awesome, graphics awesome as well. 4.5 out of 5.

Defender I and II: The reason why these games are grouped because the are so much alike. Though Defender II has slightly different graphics and features, the goal remains the same: to defend humans and destroy enemies. Gameplay and controls are good. Graphics and audio are classically awesome. 4.5 out of 5 for both games.

Robotron 2084: In two words: awesomely intense. Not for your casual gamer. Goal is to kill robots, save humans and just plain survive. Graphics ok, controls are the same. Gameplay and sound affects are the epitome of '80s games. 5 out of 5.

Bubbles: Misguided effort to be cute. Goal is to clean the sink while not being popped. All aspects decent. Still a fun game. 3.5 out of 5.

Playing awesome arcade games like this on my ps2 (yes I do have newer consoles) makes me wonder why crappy newer games come out every day. Better graphics doesn't automatically a better game. Hopefully people will realize this and try harder. Hope my review helps!

I purcahesed Sony Playstation for the sole reason of buying this CD. Williams Arcade's Greatest Hits is the only CD I own and 2084 is the only game I play. I started playing 2084 back in 1982 and it is still the most challenging game ever created ! Warning... You may end up breaking things in frustration. I have destroyed several controllers so far.

Haha, What more can I say. You get 6 remastered arcade classics that will offer you hours of enjoyment for a really cheap price. These games are indeed emulations though, even the loading screen will say "{Arcade Name Here} Emulation is beginning..."

Despite the fact that they pretty much just threw 6 roms on a CD with a menu and sold it, that doesn't make it a bad thing. These arcade classics are some that you should NOT miss out on. With my favorites being Sinistar, Defender, and Robotron 2084, it's definetly worth the price I paid of only 2 bucks, USED! (Plus shipping and Handling).

The sound is great! Be prepared to have your room busting with retro arcade sounds such as blasting, explosions, and awesome music! And with 2 player functions available for many of these games; grabbing your buddies and two controllers can make for an excellent game night where your friends scream and throw their controller to the ground as you own them in some good ol' Joust or beat them at the high score in Robotron.

The game includes TONS of extra's, but it follows the rule of almost all video-game compilations. It includes box art, interviews, fun facts, and...well that's it. Haha, but still, they can be interesting to watch for some reason...

The only two things I need to mention is that you get a really cool menu selection screen and a nice, animated intro of a spaceship...riding through space for about 15 seconds before passing the William's orbital arcade station, haha. Anyways, pick this up, it's a lot of fun and having Joust tournaments have never been this much fun!
