I didnt even know this had come out! I went to the store today and there it was and I had to buy it.  Does the critic have this one yet?  I know he is a big fan of Qix which is included here.

Played around with it a little today - there are some great games in here!  The one where you are a dragon breathing fire through a maze is great, although it feels like it originally used a trackball. 

I do have to warn people though: the awesome layout and presentation of the first Legends is NOT present in part 2: it is a very bare-bones game list.

The rarity of some of those games make Taito Legends 2 easily worth the money.

Hell, last summer I spent $40 on a japanese import of Elevator Action Returns (Saturn).  For fans of classic games this collection is really a no brainer.

It has been out here for about a year now. Really good colelction. The differences between the PS2 and Xbox versions are really irritating though

What differences besides each having 4 exclusive games due to the development problems outside of Empire's control?

The UK Xbox version is region free for those of you that want the other 4 exclusive games in the US.

Uh, are these supposed to be legitimate classics? I've heard of exactly 3 of them (Kiki Kaikai, Qix and Legend of Kage), and I'm familiar with the Bust-a-move, Elevator Action, Darius and Space Invaders despite the titles included on this disc not really ringing a bell.

At long last, I'll finally have my own copy of Crazy Balloon!!  My life is complete.

crazy balloon is hard as heck!

seems like a lot of these games originally used trackballs or turn dials to control. 

the marble maze one is still fun though. 

no gun games this time but a lot of shooters

Rastan 2 is interesting...pretty ugly graphics though
