Pretty Good

I finally picked this up, and while not fantastic...it's good.

Lots of nostalgia here, which is why I rated so high. One thing: Play it with a gamepad. Playing with a keyboard and mouse is painful.

As compatibility issues that other reviews have mentioned...the pad I used worked flawlessly.

Use that, and every game should work fine.

Arcady Goodness

This pack comes with a lot of great and addicting games. It's a great time sync, challenge and plain fun. If you're planning to play with only a keyboard then you're good to go, every game has its options and rebindable keys, however the controller support is weak. My personal favorites are Hammerin Harry and R-TYPE LEO.

Poor port, great games

The big draw ins for this pack are Metal Slug and Kung Fu Master. Undoubtedly 2 of IREM's bigges thits, they headline a pretty great collection of solid releases from the developer.

One qualm I had however: playing with a gamepad is nearly impossible. Some games flat out just don't support it and most have a hard time picking up the input.

If you don't plan on playing with a gamepad, this is a great buy. Otherwise, you might want to hold out for a price drop.

Poor Xbox 360 PC controller support, otherwise awesome

This is a decent package of arcade classics. The only blemish is poor support for my Xbox 360 PC controller.

The game recognizes the controller, however in every game it behaves like I am permanently pressing down, making gameplay impossible.

Frustrating that I have to use my keyboard, but by no means a deal breaker.

A lot of classics for a great price.

I love all the games from this company, they bring me a lot of good memories, Kung Fu Master is a total classic and a legend in the videogame history.

In this pack you have a lot of good games, an awesome Shoot 'em up like R-Typer Zero or if you like titles like Metal Slug, the Gunforce series is awesome in terms of gameplay and graphics and also try the original arcade Hammerin’ Harry, a must play from this company.

The pack includes eighteen games, most of them are really gorgeous titles that will give you a ton of hours of fun,
