Has anyone actualy bought Frogger? I just thought the game was crap, because the gameplay was far to repetitive and simple.

I'm only interested in 'Cloning Clyde' and 'Street Fighter II'
(Let's hope they bring 'Miss Pacman' to XBLA)

I bought Frogger. Loved it in the old days and love it now. Obviously a very simple game but it's maddeningly addictive. Mainly because you only ever die if it's your fault, so you can't ever blame the game.

Obviously it won't be everyone's cup of tea but it can be tried for free, so there can't be any complaints.

Personally, I'm looking forward to Galaga more than the others.

it's a shame you can't have splitscreen gaming offline in frogger...

Frogger is proper old skool. Obviously there arent going to be too many moves. But classics are good to bring more people to xbox 360. Cant wait for some more proper old titles.

Would love to see...

Paper Boy
Final Fight
Mr Do
Bionic Commandos
etc.

If you bought Ridge Racer 6 you pretty much already have Pac-Man :)

I'd buy Galaga though, I love that game. Also Street Fighter, finally.

Now we need some Ms. Pac-Man. It's better than Pac-Man.

And who in their right mind bought RR6.

Not with online leaderboards though :D

I bought RR6 and I'm in my right mind. Absolutely classic arcade racer with a superbly placed difficulty curve.

I'm looking forward to Cloninc Clyde and Street fighter aswell, don't really care about frogger, galaga or packman.

Yea- I bought Frogger. LOVE IT! The game is simple- just like 99% of all 'Arcade' games. That's the point. And this new version with the enhanced graphics (nothing CRaZy or anything, just updated) is addictive as hell! I really think it's a great game that anyone can play and I can't wait for a few more just like it..!

I bought frogger and only thing bothering me is the lag im having with the multiplayer. Almost unplayable with so much slowdown :(

Blah old school games like frogger should be 200 points. How many times to we have to re buy old classics that are only fun for 5 minutes?

Now 4 player online Simpsons Arcade would be well worth 400 points :)

galaga and street fighter will be fun... not sure about pacman - will the old 200 screen sequences work still? i can see the race for who will finish the game first coming already...

Not true next-gen! :-) Seriously though, some intresting games. Hoping they dont ask too mutch from them.

I don't like how the games are so small on the screen. I downloaded the Frogger demo and had to sit close to the tv just to play the game.

Go to the options screen and you can stretch the graphics to fit a full screen TV and a very large chunk of a widescreen tv! I found it on accident and I can't even hint at how much better it makes the game! Being able to see it does that I guess... hahahaha
