Midway's Greatest Arcade Hits Volume I Sega Dreamcast.  Well, Midway's finally gone and done it. This collection of classic arcade games has finally made it to just about every viable platform out there Now it's the Dreamcast's turn to receive a little retrogaming goodness, and while the games play about as well as they did in arcades. The collection contains some real classics. Defender is here, complete with its overly difficult (well, when you were eight or nine years old, anyway) thrust and reverse controls, though you can cheat and use the D-pad to travel left or right at will. The same goes for Defender's sequel, Stargate, which is called Defender II in the collection, presumably to clear up some sort of copyright squabble. Robotron 2084 uses the DC's four front buttons as the right control stick, which works incredibly well. Joust seems a little more difficult than the arcade original, mostly because it's harder to pound the Dreamcast's A button to stay aloft than it is to jam on the arcade's nice, large flap button. Bubbles, while probably the least recognizable of the bunch, is an excellent conversion that controls surprisingly well with the D-pad. Sinistar rounds out the package, making great use of the DC's analog stick to emulate the arcade original's 49-way joystick. If you're into classic arcade games, and you haven't already picked up this exact collection for the PlayStation or PC, this IS A GREAT way to go.
