Originally posted by IGNAppropriately named Midway Arcade Treasures Vol. 3, the new collection will focus on the publisher's popular racing games from days past. And as an added bonus for Xbox owners, players will be able to upload their highest scores via Xbox Live to see how they stack up against the rest of the nation.
Midway Arcade Treasures Vol. 3 includes Badlands, Hydro Thunder, Off Road Thunder: Mud, Sweat 'N Gears, Race Drivin', San Francisco Rush: The Rock - Alcatraz Edition, San Francisco Rush 2049, S.T.U.N. Runner, and Super Off Road & Bonus Tracks Pack.
Whereas the Mortal Kombat titles were the selling point of the last version, it's looking like the big draw this time around will be the San Francisco Rush titles. Huzzah for arcade goodness!
You know, I loves me some Midway Arcade Treasures goodness, but this third collection has precisely ZERO games that I've played in an arcade. I had kinda been hoping for Guardians Of The Hood and Escape From The Planet Of The Robot Monsters, but since I don't know if either of those are Midway titles, it's probably for the best that I didn't hope too hard.

The problem with MAT2, unfortunately, was that the games were NOT arcade perfect; there were speed issues with MK2, and sound issues with MK3. While I could easily be excited about the Rush titles...I won't hold my breath. Some things just lose out in translation.
