Taito Legends 2
As a fan of Old School games this totally ROCKS!!! I don't care about what other so-called "gamers" say about this. They either haven't played this, or aren't a fan of Old School games, or both! Speaking of experience, these games may not LOOK like much but they are just as challenging as normal games! This is DEFINATELY worth every penny you pay for it! Amoung my favorites, is Dungeon Magic. A true RPG lover's game! There are also games on here light Genkiridian, and Metal Black for shooter fans. As well as games for puzzle lovers. If you are a fan of Old School games and game collections, this is for you. The games featured on here may not be as flashy, but they more than make up for it in the challenge department! It ranks amoung the true Gaming Masterpieces!!
Very good value
To answer the inquiry below, there is indeed 39 games for Taito Legends 2, the gamespot preview is a misprint and actually describes the PSP version and not the PS2 version. The only difference between the PS2 and PC versions is that each version features four exclusive titles not on the other compilation due to emulation issues. You couldn't ask for a better bang for your buck, and there are a lot of 2D horizontal and vertical shoot em ups which I am especially fond of.
This List Is Wrong...
The list of games that is currently on EB Games' website for "Taito Legends 2" (as of 5/7/2007), is actually the game list for the upcoming "Taito Legends Power Up" on the PSP. The "Taito Legends 2" line up for the PS2 is as follows... * Alpine Ski * Arabian Magic * Balloon Bomber * Bonze Adventure * Cameltry * Chack'n Pop * Cleopatra Fortune * Crazy Balloon * Darius Gaiden * Don Doko Don * Dungeon Magic * Elevator Action Returns * The Fairyland Story * Football Champ * Front Line * G-Darius * Gekirindan * Grid Seeker: Project Storm Hammer * Growl * Gun Frontier * Insector X * KiKi KaiKai * Kuri Kinton * Legend of Kage * Liquid Kids * Lunar Rescue * Metal Black * Nastar Warrior * Puchi Carat * Puzzle Bobble 2 * Qix * Raimais * RayStorm * Space Invaders 95 * Space Invaders DX * Super Space Invaders 91 * Syvalion * Violence Fight * Wild Western Hope that helps anyone who was confused by EB Games' mix up.
a questionable comparison
ive played this on the PC but what bothers me is the PC version had around 40 games on the list meanwhile this one seems to be downsized to 20+? hmm I dont know whats the deal I hope that 20+ game count is a typo.
classic compilations at their best
This is going to be the best compilation of old games on one disc. If you like any of the old games from the eighties, this will be the daddy of all compilations. There will be games on it from every gendre of games. From action to adventure to puzzle and even a sports game. So glad they decided to bring it to the US. Whatever game style you like, you'll have plenty to like on this group of games.
