I definitely enjoyed this in the 80s with the handlebar arcade controller.  Probably not so much these days (though I always liked the voice synthesis they had for the Paperboy - reminds me of happy memories playing Impossible Mission on my C64).

I actually love this arcade game, but without the bicycle handlebar controller, there's no point.  No buy from me, despite my love of the game.

I used to love it in the arcades...I don't know how it'll hold up now.  I'll download the demo, but I doubt I'll buy it. 

/waiting for Castlevania and Catan.

Those "25 year old" games happen to be some of the best sellers on XBLA.  Like em or not, they're not going to stop releasing them.
