This game is perfect for: party gamers
You would think, then, that I would be enamored with a collection of golden age classics like the 30 contained in Midway Arcade Origins. Unfortunately, this collection makes many of the same (somewhat unavoidable) mistakes that emulators and re-releases of yore have. Contemporary consoles or computers don't do a very good job at recreating the experience of playing an arcade machine, tactually speaking. You can emulate the sights and sounds, but when you remove the joystick, the steering wheel or the trackball -- not to mention the massive, art-slathered machine -- you can too easily lose a game's soul.
