Video Review: Namco Classics Collection Vol. 2 UPDATED

Shaggy September 3, 2008 0

Here’s another video review from a game at my arcade, sorry about the delay but I had misplaced my transfer cable but after finding it I’m ready to make videos again. Today we’re looking at Namco Classic Collection Vol. 2 which was released back in 1996. It includes three classic titles on it’s roster – Pac-Man, Dig Dug and Rally X. This game also includes upgraded versions of each game that stick to the same premise but adds new features to the game making them new. Pac-Man and Dig Dug are big names that everyone recognizes but RallyX might have gone under the radar for some people. RallyX has you racing on a scrolling playfield so you can go in any direction you wish, gathering flags to move onto the next level. At the same time several cars are trying to smash into you and you must avoid them by using things like a smoke screen to avoid them. I missed out on RallyX in the video because my battery died but if anyone wants to see more on the updated version of the game I’ll make a second part.

UPDATE: I recorded some footage of RallyX that was missed on the video above, here it is below

    Yes please to the Rally-X bit – used to be a huge fan when I was a kid.

    How about doing reviews of the, uh, cooler games you have, like the Marvel vs?

    I’ll get to it soon, I plan on reviewing all the games there but plenty of people like the classics too. 😉

    Happen to have Vol 1 of the Namco Classic Collection as well?

    Unfortunately no, I have never even seen one before (likewise I had never seen Vol. 2 before I stumbled upon it in a warehouse and asked to buy it on the spot). If I do come across on though, I’ll probably get it. 🙂
