Take four tatty games from 1988, throw in one good one and what do you get? Midgets! Sorry, Giants! All of the games were big sellers so that qualities them for the title of a giant, but if you base it on quality then you're well advised to avoid this compilation. The only good game here is Gauntlet II. The others are: Out-Run, California Games, 720 Degrees and Rolling Thunder.

If you've already got Gauntlet II then don't bother with this.


Even leprechauns look down on these "giants".
