    If you're old enough to remember these games, you'll love it. There are various games here that are unmissable pieces of videogame history. I bought it for Newzealand Story & Rainbow Islands which have both stood the test of time & are as cute & challenging as ever. Plus there are excellent titles here that I'd never played before.
    My only criticisms are 1) The disk spins very fast in my PS2, making it noisy & presumably causing extra wear on my console. 2) Some games really need to be played on the original Arcade machines because the controls don't transfer well to a Playstation controller.

    I have been waiting for this to release for ages and let me tell you it didn't disappoint. All the games from my childhood losing none of the magic and playability after all these years. New Zealand Story, Rainbow Islands, Bubble Bobble, Phoenix and of course the timeless Space Invaders. I have bought other retro packs on PS2 but this is without a doubt the best around. If you want play something that is fun, then buy this, Highly Recommended.

    lots of classic arcade coin op games transferred to the ps2, quite a few i'd never heard or seen before! Gameplay is basic as are the graphics but these were state of the art way back in the late 70's

    I used to play for hours on games like bubble bobble and rainbow islands when i was a kid. This pack brings a whole variety of classic japanese arcade games to the ps2. You can even put "coins" in (pressing the select button) to gain credits to progress. Basically, the game brings the typical 80's or 90's amusement arcade right into your home. The graphics are blocky and basic, but this is classic gaming and the playability is great. Space invaders, anyone?

    Having bought other retro games packages and forgetting about them almost instantly, I was surprised to find myself utterly glued to this. It's even made me give up Pro Evo 6 for the time being! The graphics and sound, as expected, are simple but the playability of some of the games is top notch. Bubble Bobble is just as good as it ever was, especially in co-operative mode with a friend. Space Invaders had me clenching my teeth in concentration (it's quite tough really!) and Colony 7 is simple but addictive (and the sound effects are so very Squarepusher-esque). Other games are dated and a little silly but I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it. A great price too.

    Best retro compilation on the PS2. Bubble Bobble, Rainbow Islands, New Zealand Story, Rastan Saga and Thunderfox are the outstanding titles - all emulated perfectly. I actually play this through my first wave 60GB PS3 - and it works fine, despite what you may have read on PS3/PS2 compatibility sites. The only problem is that when games are first started, they tend to stutter initially, but if you let the titles sit in their attract mode for a while, letting the PS3's 'PS2 virtual machine' do its 'compilation thing' then they start running at full speed after a while.
