    Those who remember the days of the rollerball and paddle controller and have a deep yearning to return could happily fork out ten to twenty quid for this, but anyone with less than a burning desire to revisit their youth may not feel that their reddies went in the right direction.
  2. The first console software package to offer these games since they originally appeared on the 2600, so in a way it represents history itself. The arcade games also offer some of the best play experiences from the days when arcades were king. It's a great package that should be in any serious gamer's collection.
  3. Nostalgia is simply oozing out of the box and with the information sheets and pamphlets included on each game the retro gamer should be in heaven.

    I'm really pleased to see the inclusion of a good selection of original arcade ports as well. [Jan 2005, p.119]

    The emulation is dead-on too, so everything plays perfectly. [Feb 2005, p.82]

    This Game Represents how far Atari has been over the ages. I remember playing the orignal games for 25 Cents at the Arcades when I was small. This Game Represents how far Atari has been over the ages. I remember playing the orignal games for 25 Cents at the Arcades when I was small. This game is a lot, and I mean a lot of money ($20) for you to be playing the games that would cost 25 Cents A Long Time Ago. This Game would be great if it had all new or revised editions of the games. And what is with the "Constellations" It is all cr*p. Full Review »
