  1. The control scheme falls rather flat, the documentation on actually playing the games can be spotty and the overall presentation of the whole thing is quite underwhelming.

    The game tries to adapt the various keypad functions, and you can use an on-screen virtual Intellivision paddle, but neither works as well as the original hardwired controllers did.

Controller issues are a problem--imagine driving your car with a PS2 joystick controller--and some games require either two players or the use of the phone keypad onscreen. Biggest wish: Some way to update the games, either completing the revisions (I.e. Basketball III) or making it somewhat more realistic (i.e. five-a-side basketball or more players or allowing rule changes). Overall, however, if you like retro-gaming, this is worth the price no matter the platform. Full Review »
