Default Old School Games on Mini 9 - 02-06-2009, 05:30 AM

I picked up my new Mini 9 a couple days ago and I have been doing some old school gaming on it. This thing runs games a lot better than I thought it would. They actually look impressive running on this small piece of hardware, and the graphics look less dated on the smaller screen. I love the nostalgia of playing some of these older games and I wanted to share some of the ones that I have found that run good.

I have the full versions of most of these, but I will provide some demo links so you guys can test drive them.

Unreal Tournament - Classic first person shooter, great gameplay and multiplayer mode.
Demo -

Hitman 2 - 3rd person stealth based gameplay. Great game.
Demo -

Typing of The Dead - Remake of "House of The Dead 2" but you have to type words to kill enemys instead of shooting them. Great way to get used to the Dell Mini 9 keyboard!
Demo -

Max Payne - 3rd person story driven action game.
Demo -

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 - Racing game.
Demo -


I also put a PS emulator on tonight and started playing Tekken 3 with a couple of old gravis gamepads, runs great and it's a lot of fun.

Feel free to post any other games that are fun and run well on the Mini. I'd like to try some others.
