  • Summary: Atari produced many memorable arcade games during video gaming's early days and now the best have been gathered together in a new compilation. In Arcade Anniversary Edition, you relive the fast action, sights, and sounds of 12 classic Atari games: Asteroids, Asteroids Deluxe, Battlezone, Centipede, Crystal Castles, Gravitar, Millipede, Missile Command, Pong, Super Breakout, Tempest, and Warlords. Each Atari title is faithfully reproduced down to the last detail, and each one is just as easy and fun to play as the original. Collapse

  1. We have to be impressed by the number of included titles, faithfulness of the emulation, and the huge amount of archival material. Our only real gripes are the controls and lack of save support.
  2. 75
    A definite must-have title delivering classic gaming emulated perfectly as well as displaying the interesting history of the birth of arcade games.
  3. It shouldn't be missed by anyone that can still look over dated appearances and enjoy the thing that made these babies timeless: good ol' gameplay.
  4. 50
    The Dreamcast's analog controller just can't mimick the subtle nuances and control of original trackball games such as Centipede and Crystal Castle, or the simple twist knob in Tempest and Super Breakout.
  5. While the Dreamcast edition is still on the cheap side, the emulation is just lousy in comparison to the PC.
  6. The PC version of this package does a far better job of emulating these classic Atari hits.
  7. While it may look like Tempest, and sound like Tempest, it just ain’t Tempest.
