I have a MAME machine with Tron but would still consider buying this as a lot of the fun of the game is dependent on the controller.

Well, I picked this up while it was on sale ($100 off)…

I think the nostalgia bait got me on this one; while it’s probably the best looking of Arcade 1up’s cabinets, the games, themselves, have not aged too well and really aren’t objectively that great. Actually, they kind of suck.

I forgot that when I first encountered this game, I was 7 years old, with pretty low standards, and it was the best tech available, at the time (1982).

My review: 10 / 10 for the cabinet design. 4.5 / 10 for the actual games.

You can always hope it goes up in price, like Atari Star Wars.

I failed to buy one, when they were available, now the prices have skyrocketed.

I agree with you ALLEY I owned an original cabinet back in 2005 and the games were SO boring. I would play it for about 15 minutes and be done.

That is pretty cool, I know I plunked tons of quarters into that game. However, without being in a smoke filled bar and a belly full of cheap draft beer, I just don't think it would be the same. :lol:
