Fat chance. This collection is T rated (why is the ESRB still not rating the individual games? Not all of them are T rated...), which means no NARC (despite its anti-drug message), none of the Mortal Kombat games, no Total Carnage, and no Primal Rage.
I'm Terebi_chan from the tv.com (formerly TV Tome) forums.
It's a more embellished (and more aggressively priced) version of the 99 cent app. That one only had six games (and two "DLC" packs of three games each), but also only cost 99 cents (and 99 cents for each pack).
(That version DID have NARC and Total Carnage as options, but given some of the things that get released as apps, I don't think they're really hindered by the ESRB.)
The low price was countered by the fact that trying to play Defender, Spy Hunter or Total Carnage with tilt or touch controls is an effort in futility. :)

There was a time this would have been really exciting, but... after seeing this compilation in so many forms, it's hard to get excited any more. Especially without online multiplayer for Xenophobe... or Rampage...
And hopefully there will be some decent options for adjusting screen size and filters, and especially CONTROLS. But again, the other times this compilation was released, it didn't have a whole lot of those options. Wizard of Wor and Pit Fighter have always had broken emulation on consoles. How likely is it they'll fix it THIS time?
Biggest issues for me will be price and disc/download versions. I play these games for quick nostalgic thrills, and don't want to have to change discs for a quick round of Spy Hunter and Defender and Vindicators... oh, who am I kidding? I'm the sucker this game is aimed at, and I'll end up getting it anyway...
