    maybe this is a naming mistake on WARIOs part

    maybe he owns both versions and accidently swapped them like ridge racer

    I'm so fucking tired of these old games ported for the 150st time... It might of been good the first 3 times they ported it as classics but now it's becoming a lazy excuse for not having to make new games... (my thoughts though)

    I agree, but also i'd rather see ported games for the ds, instead of no games at all.

    Hey! Good games ported with extreme suckage! Now its actually worth getting. Why? Cuase spending 30 bucks on it is a waist of cash.

    I was looking forward to a nice classic + remade/remix of the games, but no, atari screwed that up royal by focusing on drug triped graffiti "artists".
    Instead of focusing on the actual game.

    I think Id rather goto the trouble of porting mame to the NDS than actually buying this game :wtf:

    This is a somewhat ok bargain bin game, but I heard its so dang glitchy that its barly playable.

    Well atleast I may soon get a chance to try this thing out for myself soon without forking over a buncha cash.

    You can play the originals without the freaky graffiti graphics.

    Yes but almost all the originals are unplayable if you are familiar with how they SHOULD work as they did in the arcade.

    Basically if I recall only Centipede, Gravitar, Warlords and Breakout play correctly. Every other of the 6 have some glaringly awful problems with them that render the arcade (as if) originals unplayable.

    For instance the target shooting in Missile Command is limited to the touch panel so you have to guess and lead the shots far more than normal to pick off all the bombs and aircraft in the non-touch screen. Others like pong, sprint, and tempest on the surface seem fine, but you got to use the stylus for 'arcade' control and it's implements very buggily so you just end up dying on accident.

    Basically if there was a DS title released this year you wanted to give someone as a spite gift and that person loves 80s (early) arcade this title would truly show them how much you wish death on them.
