Midway Arcade Origins Review | WGTC

"In an age where high-definition visuals, explosive surround sound and action-packed gameplay is the video game norm, it’s nice to take a look back at the industry’s extraordinary past. You see, without analyzing where everything started, as well as the incredible technological progression that we’ve witnessed over the last number of decades, it’s tough to fully appreciate what we have. Also, the simple fact is that yesteryear’s games deserve to be remembered, as well as celebrated. Sure, they don’t have optimal control schemes or anything that we take for granted in this year of 2012, but they have heart, charm and, for many, nostalgia. A lot of work went into our interactive hobby’s classics, and it’s a shame that today’s generation doesn’t appreciate them much." (Midway Arcade Origins, PS3, Xbox 360) 60/100

This is about the 6th time this game has been released....not that I have a huge problem with that consider it's for different systems, but still...I own Defender and Robotron and Joust on Xbox as well as owning the arcade games. But now I have to buy them again for a better emulator? Bleh...at least that's one thing that's probably fixed from the XBLA version. XBLA version Defender sucks with controls. I'm 7th on Defender in the world with a score 1/10th of what I can do on a real cabinet. Might pick this up to see what's up...
