Like the other collection, you get 11 pretty good games in Namco Museum Archives Vol 2. Galaga, Gaplus, and Dig Dug 2 add enough value to justify the collection and the modern features make it accessible for everyone. It's a shame this release features a few of the weirder titles but fans of classic games will likely enjoy replaying or experiencing these titles.
For the most part, you're getting 11 games in Namco Museum Archives Vol 1, at least three of which are classics, fewer lesser-known ones, and at least one you've probably never played for one low price. This makes it easy to recommend, as classics like Pac-Man are likely to be a hit regardless. As long as you understand these titles aren't perfect and enjoy classic shooters, arcade-style games, and silly hack and slash titles, you'll probably get your money's worth.
Fans of Darius or bullet hell games will likely appreciate everything Darius Cozmic Collection Arcade has to offer. It's crazy, flashy, and most importantly fun. It's a shame some of the games, like Darius, are not as accessible but the inclusion of Darius Gaiden helps bridge that game. Add in multiple paths, different experiences and it's easy to get a lot of value out of Darius Cozmic Collection Arcade without even bothering with high scores or online rankings.
Darius Cozmic Collection Console offers a very different experience from the arcade version. While it is still good and includes more variety, the smaller scale can make things more difficult. It also doesn't have the same ideas, such as practice mode for every game, but it's still a solid experience. It will push you to achieve a higher level and offers enough adventures to figure it out.
While some people will probably like Disintegration, it honestly doesn't have much going for it. It's a first-person shooter where you feel like that teammate that's there, but not really doing anything and a real-time strategy that is hard to control and doesn't give you very many options. Combine these with a story that relies on a cool premise to get past generic missions and you have an underwhelming experience. Online might be enough to save this long term or anyone looking for unique experience but for most people, you're probably going to just get frustrated.
While Warborn is not technically a bad game, it's fairly unremarkable. The story is bland, combat is more tactics than anything else and there isn't the charm that made similar franchises work. I don't have a Laharl to drive the experience forward or Domon Kasshu to deliver a monologue that results in a powerful blast, it's just a very technical tactical RPG that has solid tactics and little more. For some, that is probably enough but there are better options out there.
While there are things that hold Ys: Memories of Celceta back, the main concepts are good. It won't take long to be interested in where the story is going and combat is a good mixture of mindless fun and tactical planning. It's unfortunate it feels rather floaty and weapons are weightless, along with characters moving at an unnerving speed but if you can overlook these shortcomings and the dated graphics, you'll likely have an action RPG you'll want to explore and complete.
For the most part, that is what Moonlighter: Between Dimensions ultimately feels like. There are new enemies, locations, bosses, and items, yet very little matters. Focusing on specific, relatively common, drops can yield millions in cash and the rest relies on how powerful you want to become. Given I achieved enough power to make most of the challenge non-existent in roughly five hours, it makes this expansion feel rather rough. You really need to decide how powerful you actually want to be, because you do need some of this power to make the expansion fun, there just isn’t much of a need for everything unless you case after it, which might be appealing for some but left a lot to be desired.
