  • Review Score:7

    Well, it does have Bubble Bobble....

    Ok, so this isn't the best collection of old school games I've ever seen. Frankly, I just bought it for Bubble Bobble, so everything else is a bonus, anyway. It does have classics like Elevator Action and Space Invade... Read Full Review

    I was stunned when the memories of playing some of these games came back to me...

    ...and I'm not talking about Space Invaders, Elevator Action, or Bubble Bobble. I was 8 to 12 years old when these games were in their prime. I picked up this compilation primarily for Bubble Bobble, but blown away wh... 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

    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

    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

    This seems to be the last in compliation releases and I must say it is wonderful. Lots of great memories.

    Boy, was this a great retro collection. Most of these games I played in various arcades, bowling alleys and department stores. Space Invaders is a lot harder than I remember. ZooKeeper just frenetic fun. Phoenix is great... 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

    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

    Not so legendary...

    Ok this game was only £15 so I thought why not, main reason to buying was to try and complete Bubble Bobble which is one of my all time favourite old arcade games which I never completed (I think level 91 was the highest... Read Full Review
