The collection is the largest in the Namco Museum series, featuring 34 games; nine are from the Xbox Live Arcade service, three are the Arrangement games from Namco Museum Battle Collection, and twenty-eight are arcade games.

Xbox Live Arcade gamesEdit

The Xbox Live Arcade games can also be accessed via the user's Xbox Dashboard, however this is only the case if the disc is inserted into the console. Additionally, the game cannot be directly installed to the Xbox 360 HDD.

Arrangement gamesEdit

The Arrangement games are from Namco Museum Battle Collection and are not to be confused with the Arrangement games from the Namco Classic Collection series.

Arcade gamesEdit

Due to copyright reasons, all billboards in Pole Position and Pole Position II were altered to remove all company logos. For the European and Australian releases of the game, Metro-Cross was renamed to Retro-Cross.


The game recieved mixed reception upon release, with praise being towards the inclusion of the Xbox Live Arcade Games, and criticism being driven at the lack of bonus content and dissapointing presentation.[1] The Japanese game received negative reception for glitches in The Tower of Druaga, which are not found in any other version of the game.[2]
