On principle, I'm inclined to love any arcade. They are the last guardians of a dying age.
But Arcade Odyssey isn't all that special. There are just a handful of classic games, and a ton of weird Japanese imports - some with nary an English word anywhere on them.
I did enjoy tapping away on the cool X-Men game (although my brother frequently had to insert two tokens instead of the required one when using Nightcrawler). Time Crisis 3 was also cool. They even have a weird game where you have to punch these red paddles that flip out at your face. How do you play it? We're still not sure. Not much English on that one.
There's an air hockey table, but it has a lot of dead spots where the puck doesn't float.
There was also someone narrating something over a very loud speaker, but I have no idea where the man with the microphone was, or what the hell he was describing. Something about a computer server. Did I really need to hear that blaring while I'm playing games?
There are several desktop computers available (not sure why) and an area that appears to be set up for console games. But there wasn't any signage or anything. I could have asked, I guess.
I wanted to fall in love with Arcade Odyssey, but I'm not sure it merits a second date.
