VGChartz's Reviews

This is an extraordinary effort to preserve and cherish Atari's legacy and the history of early electronic game development in general. Despite some clunkers and a few omissions, this collection is required playing for any serious student of video games, or anyone ever moved by the magic of Atari.

Not every game is worth playing, and the online component requires a serious overhaul, but for Turtles aficionados focused on solo and couch co-op play, this collection is like a pepperoni pie from Antonio's, the turtles' favorite pizza joint — a must-have.

Altogether, Vol. II falls into the same category as Vol. I: a collection of deep cuts better suited to completionists and Turrican loyalists than the everyday player.

While this collection has more individual experiences and many more customization options, the line-up is arguably inferior to Turrican Flashback. As a result, last year's collection would be easier to recommend to general players, while this first volume would be better suited for collectors and Turrican super fans.

The Radical Dreamers Edition isn't as bad as it's made out to be, but to say it's a far cry from what it should have been is an understatement.

Unscored - Taito Milestones
Apr 11, 2022

There are a few gems here, including Alpine Ski, Halley's Comet, and The Ninja Warriors, but also several middling or clunky titles. They might be milestones, but they're far from essentials.

Dated gameplay mechanics, presentational inconsistencies, and a lack of graphical updates make it hard to recommend this to anyone who isn't already a fan of the franchise.

This is the finest version of one of the best horizontal shooters ever made, frame rate issues notwithstanding. It retains the best elements of the original — outstanding art, mesmerizing music, and exceptional gameplay — and pairs it will new quality-of-life features and bonus options.

Some of its more controversial elements remain, despite the technical, graphical, and mechanical overhaul. Yet the new features — optional motion controls, full camera control, auto-save, a less intrusive companion, a smoother frame-rate, and modernized graphics, among others — will surely be welcomed by parties on both sides.

A fun, well-rounded 3D fighter that's given an extra coat of polish and shine as it finally makes its way to the eighth generation.

$40 for three titles that are still fun to play and are decent representations of the originals isn’t bad value by any means, especially if you’ve never experienced them before or don't own the consoles necessary to play the older versions. It’s just a shame that so little effort seems to have been put into fixing the problems that did exist with these games.

There’s no denying that the series ends on a miserable note, but for what it’s worth, the Legendary Edition reminded me why I was so engrossed in this series over a decade ago.

May 16, 2021

Whatever Shantae's future holds, her past is worthy of dedication, but it's up to the player to prove themselves worthy of inheriting its legacy.

If you're looking only for the original Republic Commando campaign, in all its glory, with some enhanced visuals, then go for it... if you're looking for a true remaster or something that might justify double dipping on Switch, you may wish to pass.

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury is an essential platforming experience.

The classic retro-inspired beat-em-up returns in a complete package that holds up well in spite of a few newly introduced bugs.

It's not a complete collection — it's missing bonus features and a mainline installment in Super Turrican 2 — but it's a solid investment nonetheless, due to the inclusion of four classic games, several modern quality-of-life features, and some fun display options.

Unscored - Nine Parchments
Dec 14, 2017

While it doesn't bear the Trine name, Nine Parchments represents the best of that series: fun co-op action and high production values.
