OK, if they can actually get Off-Road and S.T.U.N Runner on the same disc, I am so freaking there.  Those other ones should be decent additions, also.  s

IMO they ran out of games(at least the good ones mostly) with the first release. Outside of Cyberball and a few others the 2nd release was pretty much crap IMO. Seeing stuff like Spy Hunter II was pretty laughable. How they try and pass that off as a "classic" is beyond me.

Hey, screw you guys!  S.T.U.N. Runner and Super Off-Road are probably better games than the majority on the last two releases.  Certainly enough to make me want to purchase this one.   biggrin

Exactly.  The first one had some great ones, but the second one doesn't get touched at all.

Super Off-Road was AWESOME in the arcade, but I worry how it will play without the steering wheel.  The steering wheel that just spins and spins and spins...

I also look forward to Hydro Thunder.  Damn, I had some great 2-player fun with that on the Dreamcast!

I thought the SF Rush games were fun on the N64.  I liked the original more than 2049, though.

I think we already beat the S.T.U.N. Runner debate into the ground when it was rumored to be on MAT2.

I'm a sucker for these compilations.  Plus they retail for only $20.  I wish it were coming out tomorrow!

I'm also going to weigh in on the side that says this is still cool.  At 20 dollars, its nice and affordable.  I don't have to go into a gray area (Emulators and ROMs) to play some of these games now.  For that, I am very happy.  I own the first two.  I think there are stinkers on both disks, but there are some fun games on both disks as well.  I'm just glad someone is getting the legit arcade games out there.
