A fantastic little collection of some classic games from the Taito catalog. Having it with a whole heap of game and video options means you can play how you want, and appreciate how easy they made it to swap between games. From a retro perspective, the ports are good but the collection offers no real value to new or old players, a little bit of history and concept art could have gone a long way. This is the collection to get if you have any interest in Taito games or one in particular.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
