Veteran US publisher Midway lifts the lid on a chest full of gleaming gaming classics of yesteryear
You'll struggle to find a games company with a richer arcade heritage than Midway. Having been responsible for more coin-op classics than you could shake an arcade stick at, the publisher has decided to delve deep into its vaults for a new compendium of old school gems. Featuring no less than two dozen of yesteryear's finest - some of them dating back as much as 20 years - Midway Arcade Treasures is an essential slice of nostalgia for gamers who are old enough to remember, and a great history lesson for those who aren't.
The full 24 games on offer are as follows: SpyHunter, Defender, Gauntlet, Joust, Paperboy, Rampage, Marble Madness, Robotron 2084, Smash TV, Joust 2, Bubbles, RoadBlasters, Stargate, Moon Patrol, Blaster, Rampart, Sinistar, Super Sprint, 720, Toobin', KLAX, SPLAT!, Satan's Hollow and Vindicators. A pretty massive and wide-ranging selection, we think you'll agree. Sure, graphically, they're a world apart from what you're used to on PS2 but, as the vast majority of these inherently playable beauties testify, gameplay is king. Add in a load of DVD-style extras such as game histories, interviews with the creators and original music and you have a sure fire retro winner on your hands.
