Namco Museum (ナムコミュージアム Namuko Myūjiamu?) refers to the series of video game compilations released by Namco for various consoles released in the 5th generation and above, containing releases of their games (mostly arcade games) from the 1980s and early 1990s. Namco started releasing compilations with the "Namco Museum" title in 1995 and continued for a decade and a half with the last release being in 2010 with the exception of the Japanese re-release of the earliest compilations in 2013.

The series began on the PlayStation with the tentatively named Namco Museum Volume 1, indicating Namco's intent to make further installments of the series. The series ran until Volume 5 on the PlayStation, covering various games from the late 1980s, before moving onto the Nintendo 64, all of the major sixth generation and seventh generation consoles, and Windows PC.

Namco Museum (PlayStation Series, 1995-1998, 2013)[edit]

There are 6 different volumes was be available for the PlayStation, including one (Namco Museum Encore) that released only in Japan. Each volume have 5 to 7 games; all of these were ported from the original arcade version's source code — some of the games such as Galaga and Pac-Man allowed for an alternative screen mode to compensate for the lack of vertical monitor, whereby the scoreboard was located on the left of the screen, or rotated the image 90 degrees if the user possessed a vertical monitor or was willing to risk placing the television/monitor on its side.

The control systems of each of the games were well preserved. However, since the PlayStation's analog controller was not available at the time, analog control for Pole Position and Pole Position II is only supported in this compilation by Namco's neGcon joypad.

Each package with the exception of Namco Museum Encore also had a "museum" mode where the player could walk through a virtual museum containing various curiosities surrounding the games including images of the mainboards, marketing material and conceptual artwork (all from the Japanese releases; neither each volume contain any American materials). For this reason, the games themselves are based on the Japanese releases, although for the U.S. the games retain their U.S. changes (i.e., Pac-Man is still "Pac-Man", as opposed to "Puckman"; the ghosts still have their U.S. names, etc.).

Namco Museum 64 for Nintendo 64 and Namco Museum for Dreamcast and Game Boy Advance share five games in common, while the Nintendo 64 and Dreamcast versions also include Pac-Man. Out of the six titles, half are from Namco Museum Volume 1 and the other half are from Namco Museum Volume 3:

Both Namco Museum 64 and the Namco Museum for Dreamcast were only released in North America.

The Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Advance versions lack a saving feature built into the cartridge. For this reason, the Game Boy Advance version cannot save high scores and the Nintendo 64 version can only do so with a separate Controller Pak. In contrast, the Dreamcast version uses GD-ROM discs, so games for that system such as Namco Museum require a VMU for saving progress. The Dreamcast version also features a mini game titled Pac-It that can exclusively be played on the VMU, the gameplay of Pac-It is similar to Kaboom!. The Game Boy Advance also received a Pac-Man-themed compilation with a similar interface to the GBA version of Namco Museum called Pac-Man Collection. Both the GBA version of Namco Museum and Pac-Man Collection are rated by the ACB for the Wii U Virtual Console.

IGN gave Namco Museum 64 a mediocre 5.5 out of 10 overall with little criticism about the presentation of the game saying "'Museum' is a code word for 'old' in this case. Nothing neat or extra about it besides the title song".[1]

The PlayStation 2 in 2001, Xbox, and Nintendo GameCube in 2002 were host to yet another edition of the series.
The collection on these consoles include all the games from Namco Museum 64 and the Dreamcast's Namco Museum plus:

This edition of Namco Museum is the first collection in the series to include a non-arcade game (Pac-Attack, originally released on Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo and also previously included in the Japanese-only Namco Anthology Vol. 2, and Pac-Man Collection). The "Arrangement" games in the collection were originally on the arcade's Namco Classic Collection Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. The pitch of the audio in Pac-Man Arrangement and Dig Dug Arrangement have been changed slightly from their original aspect: the pitch sounds higher than it did in the arcade versions. This compilation was released only in North America on all three of the consoles on which it was released on.

Namco Museum Battle Collection[edit]

This title was released on the PlayStation Portable in 2005. It contains over twenty of Namco's games such as Pac-Man (1980) and Galaga (1981). In addition, new "Arrangement" variants are available for Pac-Man, Galaga, New Rally-X (1981) and Dig Dug (1982), which have updated gameplay, graphics and can be played in a versus or co-operative mode using the PSP's ad hoc feature. Game Sharing, a feature that had not yet been used on the PSP, was introduced in this game. This allowed others PSPs in the area to download the first few levels of some of the games.

The "Arrangement" games in this compilation are not the same as they were on the arcade's Namco Classic Collection Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. They are entirely new games that were designed to take advantage of the PSP's hardware and features.

The Japanese version is divided into two volumes, with the second containing three extra games: Dragon Spirit, Motos Arrangement and Pac-Man Arrangement Plus.

This title refers to Namco's 50 years as a company that originally manufactured toys in 1955. It was the second "Namco Museum" compilation to be released on the PlayStation 2, Xbox and the Nintendo GameCube (the scaled down version on Game Boy Advance was also the second "Namco Museum" compilation for the GBA). It was also released on Windows PC.

The versions on PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, and Windows PC include 16 games:

This is the first edition of Namco Museum with true arcade game emulation using the original game ROMs. Also, the Nintendo GameCube version allows the player to insert a limited number of credits, about 5 or 6, by repeatedly pressing the Z button when the game first starts, but then players can only exit to the main menu during game play. The PS2, Xbox, and PC versions allow the player to exit a game at any time, but skips being able to add credits. For Dragon Spirit, Pac-Mania and Galaga '88, the continue features from the original arcade versions have only been retained in the Windows PC version of the collection.

This collection (except for the scaled down GBA version) includes five songs from the 1980s:

The Windows PC version was negatively received because it contains StarForce protection and it does not run on Windows 7 or higher.

In Japan, this was released under the title Namco Museum Arcade Hits! for PlayStation 2 only, with Pac-Mania and Galaga '88 unlocked right from the start and different menu music.

The scaled down version on Game Boy Advance includes five games:

Like the original Namco Museum for the Game Boy Advance, this version does not save high scores.

Namco Museum Virtual Arcade is made up of two sets of games. The first set includes nine Xbox Live Arcade games. These are identical to the digital Xbox Live Arcade versions but are present on the game-disc. These games can be selected from the compilation's menu or, only while the game-disc is in the console, accessed directly from the Xbox Live Arcade menu. The second set includes Museum games; these are the ones accessible directly from the disc. They do not come with achievements or online play. Namco Museum Virtual Arcade is the first Namco Museum game to include Sky Kid Deluxe (1986), while all of the rest were already or previously available on consoles. In common with other disc releases that include full Xbox Live Arcade games on-disc (like Xbox Live Arcade Unplugged for example), installation of the game-disc to the Xbox 360 HDD is disallowed.

Museum Games

Arrangement Games

  • Dig Dug Arrangement (2005)
  • Galaga Arrangement (2005)
  • Pac-Man Arrangement (2005)

The Arrangement games are placed in the same menu as the Museum games, and are the same as they were on the PSP's Namco Museum Battle Collection, although New Rally-X Arrangement is not included in this collection. Additionally, on all games, the original 2-player modes from the original arcade versions (where applicable) do not appear here; all games are one player only. The Xbox Live Arcade games do not have multiplayer either with the exception of Mr. Driller Online's online mode. The Xbox Live Arcade games can only be played when the disc is inside the system. The games must be downloaded from Xbox Live Marketplace for their regular prices in order for the games to be retained in the system's game library.

Reception: The compilation received mixed reviews, the collection was praised for its inclusion of XBLA games, but is harshly criticized for its disappointing presentation and lack of bonus features.[citation needed]
