They SENT you a copy? They actually give a retro gaming magazine review copies of games? I'm surprised they bother.

Surely retro gamer reviewed this collection a while back? How did you do this without a copy of the game?

It's been really annoying me, because ever since I read the review I've been itching to get hold of a copy. What could be taking them so long??? It must be ready for release by now...

that would make a lot of sense...
but it wouldn't explain why it's taking so long to be released over here!

I'll never understand why games that are not region protected, will be released in the US but nor the UK. I mean, we don't need all the different languages, and the US one probably has Spanish on it already. So that's Spain sorted too. Which means more sales as if the games particularly shit then we won't have had those extra few months to find out from the Yanks.

I agree-games companies seem to band the UK with he rest of Euope , so we have to wait for French/German/Spanish translations before we get them most of the time

Again no Immortal :evil:

It seems a good collection from EA though. Is that a final list?

It would just top it off for me if The Immortal was in there...

We were sent review build. The version they sent me the other day is the one you'll be able to buy in the shops next week.

Is there really any point having 8-bit versions of arcade games on these compilations,especially when the arcade versions are available on other
compilations?
Surely it's better to have games specific to the system,or that can't be played on better machines?

Also the home conversions often have extra modes and are actually the better games.
