3 out of 5 eggsone step forward, one step back

Pros: all those delisted XBL arcade games are back! on disc this time!
lots of great arcade classics with a few obscure ones as well.
there's a quasi-free play mode for each game & most have fully fleshed out options to tinker with. There's also a 1-credit challenge for each game used for the leaderboards.

Cons: These midway compilations always feel increasingly half hearted. The old Midway collections had bonus features like interviews. This has nothing & features the same handful of 6 arcade games midway stuffed in their original 'classic' compilations since the Playstation era.
Some of the emulation is lazy. 720 would sometimes start with the direction uncalibrated before it would eventually fix itself. Wizard of War also spazzes out and begins to stutter so bad the game almost freezes.
also the controls! UGH the controls... Almost half the games in this collection used non-stick controls or a specialized joystick in the arcade and these were adapted poorly to the xbox controller. There's no way to reconfigure movement. Because of it, roughly half (@10) games play so badly there's no enjoyment in them. The driving games are the worst. APB in particular has controls so fidgety and sensitive, its almost impossible to play. Why on earth did they do this?
also, no mortal kombat.

Other Thoughts: Happened to snag this while it was on sale. Would have bought it for $30 even if it wasn't, but based on my experience, this was meant to be a budget title. The effort put forth by WB games was so feeble, its borderline insulting. Its a real shame.
