    For gamers pushing thirty, Atari 80 is a window to the past and the essential anthology of Atari classics. For the uninitiated, 80 Classic Games could be the first course book in your self-education of "The History of Electronic Gaming."
  2. A great way to relive some of the high points of classic gaming. However, poorly implemented customization options and sometimes less-than-perfect emulation tarnish what would otherwise be an incredible trip down memory lane.
  3. 60
    With slightly better play control and improved vector-graphics information, the collection could be a definitive representation of videogames from the late '70s and early '80s, but as it stands, it's a fairly average look at gaming's early days.

    This game surprisingly works on my Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 3.66 GHZ, and a Superclocked NVidia GTX 260 @ 896 MB of Ram, and 2 gigs of memory.This game surprisingly works on my Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 3.66 GHZ, and a Superclocked NVidia GTX 260 @ 896 MB of Ram, and 2 gigs of memory. The games are not bad, it is just the thing that lets you choose the game, it changes color, and crashes a whole lot. I think it was good Steam took this off their catalog, even though it is quite the good game if it works. Full Review »

Too many crashes, hang ups, stuttering to be playable which is only going to get worse as current hardware moves further away from the shabby front end, the games would still be brilliant if you could just get at em!
