Originally released for the Neo Geo arcade system in 1994, Windjammers is fully deserving of its cult status. But for all its credibility among arcade aficionados, the game is in essence a spin on Pong, albeit one festooned with mechanical and aesthetic trappings. Those extras, however, present a truly magnificent game, especially for multiplayer and, now, online.
Fundamentally, it is frisbee tennis, with two rivals launching a flying disc at one another while defending goals. Run alongside the Neo Geo original, the port accuracy is superb. Some online matches fail to launch, a problem fixable with an update, and one that barely detracts from a near perfect arcade game.
