    For anyone who has any interest in classic video games, this is a must-buy. If you just want a bunch of great pick-up-and-play games for your GBA that will sorely test your hand-eye coordination, this is a must-buy. If you don't want to look like a punk with no appreciation of the roots of video gaming, this is a must-buy.
  2. If you purchase only one retro pack in your life, make sure it's this one.
  3. Intelligent design makes playing each game a breeze, while the inclusion of a records list and patches makes conquering each game a challenge.

    Most of the good 'uns ("River Raid," "Pitfall") still hold up surprisingly well, though "Kaboom" is totally unplayable without the paddle controller. [Apr 2004, p.86]
  5. Aspyr did a great job of cramming nearly the entire Activision library for the Atari 2600 into a single GBA cartridge. [Spring 2004, p.38]
  6. 80
    It’s easily the best retro collection available to date!
  7. Since some of the titles, such as the window-treatment simulation Venetian Blinds, have no rules or scoring systems, it would be difficult to qualify them as games. [Mar 2004, p.119]
