Finally, all your all-time favorite Intellivision games in one package. Expand

  1. A faithful compilation that remains true to its roots and won't disappoint videogame archeologists.
  2. A package that is full of potential, with over 60 games and several bonus features. However, there are many problems with everything in between – especially the keypad and controls, but also with the lack of graphical quality outside of the faithfully reproduced Intellivision graphics, and the short soundtrack.
  3. Silly music and controller headaches aside, Intellivision Lives! does a fine job of compiling a huge number of games into one package and presenting them in an easy-to-pick-up manner.

    While Intellivision Lives accurately represents the look and sound of what gamers were playing on the system, it doesn't accurately represent the actual Intellivision experience. The only way this would be possible is with an actual Intellivision controller.
  5. Designed for a keypad-equipped Controller, the games are almost unplayable after their configuration to the GCN Controller - it's a frustrating experience. [Jan 2005, p.138]

    I found the controller a little clunky on Intellivision games where the keypad is crucial. There is also very little instruction on how to play each game which is a handicap. Other than that I found the retro games fun and enjoyable. Expand

    Just completely horrible. I played for ten minutes then trew it in the dust (I wonder where it is). I havent seen it since.
