A decent collection of arcade titles but most of them have not aged terribly well. Fun if you have nostalgia but this one could be skipped for people who arent fan of score based titles.

Theres some decent stuff here but theres also a fair amount of clunkers to offset those. Emulation is mostly ok bar some games with sound issues. The overall UI and menu systems suck horribly. Its worth nabbing if you need to but theres better ways to play most of the titles on this collection nowadays.
