Will there ever be a videogame museum?
Quarter after Quarter and now its Dollar after Dollar. Arcades have changed a lot from decades ago. There are some of us who want more realistic games and then there will be others who enjoy the simplicity of yesteryear. The GameBoy Advance is full of classics and Namco just added a few more with Namco Musuem. In this bundle, you get Galaga, Dig Dug, Pole Position, Galaxian and the lovely Ms Pac Man all in one gamepak. Namco has done an excellent job bringing these classic games to the GameBoy Advance. Expect no choppy frames or horrible sound quality, these games are exactly the way you remembered them. But do you remember walking into the arcade to see if you still had the number one spot in the high score list? If you did or not, one of the major drawbacks of Namco Museum is that it doesn't save your scores. Yeah, it doesn't have any extra unlockables, but the ability to save scores would of added a lot of replay value. So those looking for more, will end up playing each game for a few minutes and thats it. Back then it wasn't all about beating a game, it was about getting the highest score. I hope future arcade collections don't have this problem. So whether you want to go back to the golden era of arcades or find out what all the fuss is about. Namco Museum brings some of the greatest arcade hits to the small screen.
