  • Rating:7

    Could have used a better selection of games.

    I'm a sucker for retro collections and if you're reading this, you probably are as well and are deciding whether to spend the coin on your third or forth copy of Space Invaders. I paid ten bucks and wasn't disappointe... Read Full Review

    Taito Legends serves a sizeable helping of some of their beloved classics despite some disappointing omissions.

    Years before it was bought up by Square Enix, Taito procured a ton of unique and fun arcade quarter-crunchers. Taito Legends brings a whopping 29 titles from its catalog into the home console compilation fray. While th... Read Full Review

    Lots of obscure classics.

    The release of classic 80's arcade compilations continues unabated, and Taito legends is a very worthy addition. The game features well over 25 classic arcade games including at least one of the most famous games ever m... Read Full Review

    A great cast of games for anybody just wanting to have fun

    I'm sure Taito could've added more games to this compilation, but (almost) as always, they've done a superb job producing A-class entertainment. Kudos to Sega Corp as well in producing this baby. But since Sega helped in... Read Full Review

    Ah, good old times…

    If you were a kid in the 80’s you’ll certainly remember Taito arcade games. In this collection you can replay many of them (many others will be available on Taito Legends 2) at your home, saving a lot of coins (as is pr... Read Full Review

    Many of the games here hold up well, a solid value, and good presentation.

    Many classic compilations have come on the PS2, which are a dime a dozen on that platform. Taito has been in business since 1978, and has quite an established history. The name doesn’t carry the same weight as it did ba... Read Full Review

    Generous compilation and a solid value

    Building off of a growing trend where long-standing publishers package many of their retro games on a single disc, Taito throws their hat into the fray with their debut compilation release, Taito Legends 1. Taito’s colle... Read Full Review

    Playing fast and loose with the term "Legends" but still a good bunch of old-school games.

    Taito Legends hearkens back to a time when games were created to be easy to get into and as fun to play as possible. Since every game developer back then was competing for the average gamer's quarter concepts like realis... Read Full Review

    Nice package, but could've been better.

    This is a great package of classic games. There are 29 classics packed in from this classic company. Not only does it contain Space Invaders and Space Invaders Part 2, the collection also contains great classics like Bub... Read Full Review
