Same game only smaller...
« on: September 06, 2013, 15:54:05 PM »
Taking a closer look at similar console and portable games. Hope others will share?


First off:

Activision Anthology
Playstation 2
Over 45 games including: Atlantis, Barnstorming,  Baseball, Beam Rider, Boxing, Bridge, Checkers, Chopper Command, Commando, Cosmic Commuter, Crackpots, Decathlon, Demon Attack, Dolphin, Dragster, Enduro, Fishing Derby, Freeway, Frostbite, Grand Prix, H.E.R.O., Ice Hockey, Kabobber, Kaboom!, Keystone Kapers, Laser Blast, Megamania, Moonsweeper, Oink!, Pitfall!, Pitfall 2, Plaque Attack, Pressure Cooker, Private Eye, River Raid, River Raid 2, Robot Tank, Seaquest, Skiing, Sky Jinks, Space Shuttle, Spider Fighter, Stampede, Starmaster, Tennis, Thwocker, Title Match and TomCat: F14

Activision Hits - Remixed
PSP
Includes 40+ games: Atlantis, Barnstorming, Beam Rider, Boxing, Bridge, Checkers, Chopper Command, Cosmic Commuter, Crackpots, Decathlon, Demon Attack, Dolphin, Dragster, Enduro, Fishing Derby, Freeway, Frostbite, Grand Prix, H.E.R.O., Ice Hockey, Kabobber, Kaboom!, Keystone Kapers, Laser Blast, Megamania, Moonsweeper, Oink!, Pitfall!, Pitfall 2, Plaque Attack, Pressure Cooker, Private Eye, River Raid, River Raid 2, Robot Tank, Seaquest, Skiing, Sky Jinks, Space Shuttle, Spider Fighter, Stampede, Starmaster, Tennis and Thwocker


Both include bonus unlockables: commercials and the various patches that Activision awarded.
Both have an 80's soundtrack.

Playstation 2 version has a few extra games like Baseball, Commando, Title Match Wrestling and Tomcat: F14 Flight Simulator.

PSP version overcomes any shortfalls in being vey button friendly. Even Decathlon was a breeze to play.

Two similar games only just a little different in size.

Taito Legends:

Playstation 2 and Xbox: 29 games.
Battle Shark, Bubble Bobble, Colony 7, Continental Circus, Electric Yo-Yo, Elevator Action, Exzisus, Gladiator, Great Swordsman, Jungle Hunt, The New Zealand Story, The Ninja Kids, Operation Thunderbolt, Operation Wolf, Phoenix, Plotting, Plump Pop, Rainbow Islands, Rastan, Return of the Invaders, Space Gun, Space Invaders, Space Invaders Part 2, Super Qix, Thunderfox, Tohio, Tube It, Volfied and Zoo Keeper

PSP: 25 games.
Alpine Ski, Balloon Bomber, Cameltry, Chack  'N Pop, Crazy Balloon, Elevator Action, Kiki Kaikai, Kuri Kinton, Legend of Kage, Lunar Rescue, New Zealand Story, Phoenix, Qix, Rastan, Return of the Invaders, Space Dungeon, Space Invaders, Space Invaders Part 2, Space Chaser, The Fairyland Story and updates to Cameltry, Crazy Balloon, Balloon Bomber and Legend of Kage.

Nice mix of games for both a console and portable player.

PS 2 & Xbox - My favorites Jungle Hunt, Zoo Keeper, Elevator Action, Phoenix and Space Invaders.

PSP - Space Invaders has to be the best port ever. Sounds and gameplay are spot on. Only complaint is Jungle Hunt is missing from this version.

Different enough, that you might want both sizes.

Both are excellent collections for the Sony systems.  I have the PSP versions of these and I love them! 
Going to the final frontier, gaming...
