  1. Our only real gripes are the controls and the sluggishness of some of the titles on less powerful systems.

    It definitely deserves a place on your game shelf, if not for the sheer gameplay, at the very least for the history it documents.
  3. The perfect arcade classic package for hardcore retro gamers, parents looking for something simpler and less disturbing for kids and, of course, thirty-somethings looking to recapture a little of their past glory.
  4. Even though I had a blast browsing through all the game had to offer I found that it was basically a re-release of the "Atari Hits Volume 1 and 2."

    Emulation on this game set is very good, much better than many of its competitors. It has a very good arcade feel to it. I don't have Emulation on this game set is very good, much better than many of its competitors. It has a very good arcade feel to it. I don't have any real control issues as were mentioned by some of the reviewers. I have it set up with my HotRod Joystick and it does a very good job of providing the arcade feel to it. A couple of the games, Missle Command and Centipede, work better with my Logitech Marble Mouse. It does very well for these two. The arcade machine art is very good for each machine. You can fully install the game so you will not have to stick the cd in each time you play (which I hate). The interface is very easy. The price is very reasonable. If you like the older arcade games this is as good as I've seen. Full Review »
