    Playable Museum with a collection of 100 titles straight out of the pioneering phase of our favorite hobby. Unfortunately some very important classics are missing.

As innovations continue to push the limit, so goes the number of senses we can activate in a virtual world. There was also a dimension this collection brought back to me and that was the smell of a freshly unwrapped game cart as we tore it open the 1st time to play or the smell of the old arcades we use to adore so much. So my review for this collection of Atari classics to date will be about what it offers for what it is, retro greatness. So instead of critiquing each game for how good or great it was many years ago, I’ll simply say this. The presentation of the game is clean, and you’ll love the retro feel. If you aren’t a retro gamer there’s nothing here to change your mind, if you are a retro-head like myself dive in! The price of admission is less than a couple hours in an 80’s arcade (if you were good), and there’s so many games you should remember if you played as many games as I have since the days of Pong. I would love to see more collections of this nature especially a fully loaded coin-op collection from Atari, all in one complete bundle. I’d pay AAA retail price for a robust collection of Atari’s finest and complete collection of all their arcade greats. While I’m not sure what licensing would be involved this would be a dream come true to me personally (other arcade powerhouses take note). So take other reviews with a grain of salt. All 3 of Atari’s collections released to date on the Xbox Vol 1, 2, and 3 are all worth the price of admission. Any effort put on the market to help me bring back the lost gaming of yesteryear and childhood nostalgia are always worth a purchase to me. So yes 2 thumbs up and keep doing great things and a special thanks for those of us that grew up with video games and made them all what they are today. Two Massive thumbs up! Expand
