Start Those Nostalgic Engines       Product Reviews

There is just so much these days with the classics of the past coming back into the video game markets. Nevertheless, it actually isn't at all a bad thing, but it doesn't at all capture a hit for anybody who is more into current style video games like Halo, or Madden Football '06. While it isn't all that bad, some nostalgia compilations can definitely be enjoyable. Since Midway conjured their classic Arcade Trasures a few years ago, many people have really beeen trying to get those hands on those gems. Howvever, the past 2 of them were just all around. This time the games have a certain theme of a checkered flag.

Midway Arcade Treasures 3 for the Nintendo Gamecube, goes all out within the category of being fast and furious, racing in other words. The compilation of racing games here have all been restored beautifully and absolutely deliver. The compilation has some of Midway's best racing titles including Hydro Thunder, a wild a wicked hovercraft boat racing game, Off Road Thunder, and the fast and extremely outrageous San Francisco Rush: The Rock Alcatraz Edition. Also, classic arcade games like the 1990's 3-D Race Drivin', and Badlands are also highlighted here as well. The games here really do deliver here not just in the way they are play, but also in the control. It is very simple to operate and easy to drive. Although you can decide which button you want to be the gas button like before for earlier console versions of games like San Francisco Rush 2049, but the game here all just easy to play.

Yet, I don't know if there are a lot of people that might seem interested in this racing compilation right now. But, Midway Arcade Treasures 3 for Nintendo's Gamecube is a great buy for anybody who missed the fast and wild racing games in the arcades, or earlier consoles like the Genesis or Nintendo 64 eras. Start those nostalgic engines and get this game.
