Bad review of it from https://archive.org/details/Personal..._Games_Issue05

"Emax Computing's Arcade Profes-
sional comes with a truly awesome
warning: 'This panel,' you are told, ‘is a
professional module. It is not a toy.'

Well, if it isn't a toy it isn't going to sell
very well, because the number of people
I know who make a living playing
arcade games is pretty small.

The Arcade Professional is an enor-
mous module, as befits its price. The
base measures about a foot across,
dwarfing the stick itself. The 'non-slip
foam base' doesn’t prevent the module
from roaming around the table when
you get excited.

Control is very disappointing; the
steel stick is too loose in the base and,
consequently, response time is slow.
What is worse is that the stick is in the
ideal position for left-handers. I have
nothing against these people, but I do
believe that the right-handed are in the
majority, even among the arcade profes-
sionals."
