Here are two Arcadia 2001 reviews for you to chew on.

I've thought for awhile now that Golf looked Ok. Too bad it has so many problems. (That could describe most of the Arcadia 2001'a library, couldn't it?)

Great to see more reviews for a pre-crash console like the Arcadia! I was wondering why I hadn't heard of these games, but then I realized they weren't released in North America -- is that correct? Or, at least, this rarity list seems to think so:

It claims that Golf was only released for a version of the Arcadia that has a different cartridge slot from the US console. Is the VGC playing these games via multicart?

I believe so. I think he's had it for a few years. Here is a comment from about a year ago from

My folks picked one of these up as a door prize at a timeshare presentation, with five games, back in '83. I traded it for a Colecovision, but now I wish I had kept it. It's such an oddball that I would definitely enjoy owning one again.

Yeah - using the multicart. If I need to add an extra icons (import, prototype, etc) let me know!
