Presentation & Graphics:
This Arcade Hits Pack visualizes the phrase “Please insert coin(s)” in the mind immediately, except the game is fully paid for once out of the store. Being a straight port from its arcade version, it looks and plays just like at the arcade. The only missing experience is the interruption from inserting coins to continue. However, it also means for a major surprise visually because of the technological advances video gaming had seen since the two arcade titles’ original release.

       

Sounds:
Much like the visuals, the sounds of these two games are faithful reproductions of the golden arcade era. Since the game is packed with action, most of what’s heard is the repeating machine gun noise. Though the games give some surprise with its uses of the Wiimote speakers.

       

Gameplay:
“Blast from the past” pretty much sums up this old school two-in-one rail shooter. Don’t expect to see fancy photorealistic models, but the game is as good as new once the initial graphics time-warp shock is passed. Touching back with the roots of rail shooter games, this arcade pack offers exactly what was found in the arcade back in the 1990s. The best way to enjoy this title is definitely with a friend, for a quick android blasting session. Both of these games are quite a bit easier than its average coin-eating arcade machines cousins, however, the enemies have such fancy moves that it wouldn’t be surprising if the Wachowski brothers were inspired by their bullet dodging tricks for The Matrix.

       

Longevity:
Frankly, even with two games on disc, the game pack doesn’t last very long in a single playthrough. But there are a few extra features that may make it worth its 120 quarters – 60 continues at the arcade – price tag. There are several upgrades as well as ranks to obtain for beating the game through and through. The upgrades vary and prolong the gameplay experience alongside with its camera that reacts and changes according to the crosshair(s). These extras and the scoring system add a little more value to this memoir from the past.
