Editors' Review

+
This program itself isn't a game. It's a portal leading to hundreds of excellent arcade games. Most of the games offer 60-minute trials and cost $19.95 to register. The Web Games tab lets you play free Web-based variations using a special plug-in. The program also can search your hard drive for all the games you already have, providing one-stop access to the lot. If it misses a game, you can drag and drop its shortcut onto the RealArcade window. The interface also gives you access to game reviews and message boards so you always can get cheats and tricks from the community. The program includes no adware, although ads sometimes appear in the interface for the Web games. The only downside is installing the package can take quite a while, but we think it's worth the time. We recommend RealArcade to all casual and arcade gamers.

"Won't install on Windows 7"

November 08, 2012  |  By leek-soup

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Decent program from what I remember.

Cons

Won't work on windows 7, apparently.

Summary

My parents used to have this on their computer and I was trying to find one particular game I used to play on it, so I tried to download this.

The installer stops at 50% of preparing installation, then one after another, an error window pops up. They're shown one at a time, but there were 40-50 in all. I lost count. I tried redownloading three times, thinking maybe the file just errored, but nope. It does this every single time.

"Brilliant!"

Pros

Has all the classic games and runs perfectly! @txgeekygirl The servers work great as the merge never happened in the UK. We still have realarcade.

Cons

Not many new, updated games.

Summary

All in all, a great piece of software if you like older PC games.

"This software is now TRASH"

August 02, 2011  |  By txgeekygirl

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

you can still get most or all of your games back if you connect with Gamehouse.com

Cons

cannot get back the Real Arcade software as they shut down the server.Gamehouse.com now has all accounts and also games purchased from RA.After installing software suggested by Gamehouse it completely trashed my RA install and I cannot get it back

Summary

If you had Ra and want all your games-go to Gamehouse.com and set up an account. It will give you an opportunity to merge your RA account. Not all the older games are still available(there is a list of "retired games") but you can re-download any in your list after you merge the account. If you cannot remember your RA log information- the GH chat can reset your password.You can then download the games individually-but its not the same as the RA software set-up.

"Its good but no longer supported"

August 29, 2010  |  By JasCarver9

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Merged with GameHouse to provide a larger catalog of games

Cons

Original client no longer supported.

Summary

RealArcade is no longer supported and you will need to sign into Gamehouse.com to transfer your account. You may find some games that are no longer supported. If that is the case, email support@gamehouse.com and they will help you out. I am not an employee or staff member of Gamehouse.com just trying to pass on this helpful information.Also, if you hit up Gamehouse on Facebook they can help you as well.
