This is classic entertainment, grafted to a modern marvel of a home console from the days long past of arcade glory. It's not recommended for anyone that doesn't have the stomach for some super-challenging, twitchy gameplay. It is highly recommended for folks that experienced the great days of arcade fighting games in the 90's and want to reclaim some of that excitement in their living room. SNK Arcade Classics Vol. 1 won't recreate the dark, stuffy, cramped arcade or the piles of quarters on the Neo-Geo machine but if you close your eyes during a session of The King of Fighters '94, you might just be able to project yourself back in time. Like the dinosaurs, these games reigned supreme in days long past, before the living room became the new arcade experience.
