    The Asteroids Deluxe package is another classic game that feels like its achievement points are worth more than the purchase itself.
  2. It's simple, accessible and briefly entertaining.
  3. They’ll likely stir some major nostalgia for a lot of older gamers out there that remember when arcade games were fixtures in bars and pool halls - back when the cabinets came complete with ashtrays and drink holders. But they haven’t stood the test of time as well as some other bona fide arcade classics.

    You can also play with the old graphics and relive that '80s charm. [Oct 2007, p.74]

    Old, tired and uninspired. [Jan 2008, p.99]
  6. A product of their dated environment for sure, but still two fine examples of video gaming when considered within context.

    [An] abomination. [Issue#29, p.117]
  8. The graphics in the updated versions do look rather good, but the game is just too frustrating to play for long periods of time.

    Not shat or shovel, Asteroids Deluxe is one of the very, very few early eighties games that still play well. [Feb 2008, p.94]
  10. There are two huge flaws in the release of Asteroids for Xbox Live arcade; the fun factor and the price.
