    Some great games at a bargain price.

    Anyone who was lucky enough to have a Neo Geo can fondly remember alot of these games. Magician Lord, Sengoku, Metal Slug, Samurai Showdown, Fatal Fury, and Last Resort are all fantastic games. The other games are decent... Read Full Review

    SNK Arcade Classics Volume 1 (PS2) is RETRO at its finest!

    Ah, nostalgia. That's emotions and thoughts I experience whenever I play something from time's past. This collection is no different as I remember the powerhouse that is NEO-GEO (I even remember the expensive system and ... Read Full Review

    Very nice to see Neo-Geo games getting released in this fashion, solid collection

    Ah yes, another compilation; I am really beginning to love these homage's to a better time in the world of video-games. I guess it is the only way anymore to stimulate my interest as I am not at all entertained with how ... Read Full Review

    SNK fans looking for a compilation of more than just fighting games will be very pleased!

    PRESENTATION: 2 out of 5This compilation has a very basic and mostly generic menu system to select your games from. None of it looks particularly great, but it isn't bottom of the barrel either. The loading times are als... Read Full Review

    A worthy collection that should've been more.

    SNK Arcade Classics is a worthwhile purchase for your collection if you're a fan of SNK or classic arcade games but as their recent releases it is very bare bones. On the upside you can get 16 games for $15-$20 but a go... Read Full Review

    PSP Retro gaming at its finest. Brilliant compilation.

    Believe it or not, I have never played on an arcade machine in my life, I have never played any of the more modern arcade titles such as – Time Crisis, House of the Dead or Tekken, and I was too young to have played the ... Read Full Review

    Back in the day these games were great. Are they still great today?

    This is a review of the Wii version. As I understand it there is a PS2 version but I don't know if they are the same or slightly different. Anyway, I'll start off with that if you don't like retro game don't buy it. B... Read Full Review

    Better than Namco Museum.

    In my opinion, this is better than Namco Museum. There are 16 games. Art of Fighting is the origin of the fleshed-out story mode in fighting games. It's also the origin of the spirit bar that limits use of special moves.... Read Full Review

    For only the die hard.

    When I saw this at my local game store, I thought it might be worth picking up. Although I've never been a big fan of games made by Shin Nihon Kikaku (SNK), There were some real gems with this compilation. Unfortunately,... Read Full Review
