I'd agree the collection is a little lightweight..­....but…

Tekken…Time Crisis.....

They are not arcade classics (they are arcade games, but nowhere old enough to qualify IMO).

Good ol' Rolling Thunder though......loved it.

3 stars"

No Splatterhouse?

Namco seems to be proud that there are 14 games on here, but how many of them are actually good?

I'd say Pac-Man, Rolling Thunder and Galaga… so that would make three.

You've got another Pac-Man game as well as Galaxian which came before Galaga. That would make 5 except you're playing similar or inferior games (in the case of Galaxian).

Rally X is cool, and Bosconian's al­right. I personally would count those, other's opinions would vary.

In my opinion then, you are getting 5 decent to average games for your money.

Also, I think that Taito's collection offer's far superior value for money. You get 29 games in their package and 90 percent of them are good.

Namco has deliberately left some of their titles out of this collection, notably Splatterhouse, Tekken, Mr Driller and Time Crisis to name a few.
