Conclusion: For a compilation package, there are few that can compare. The games are good, the presentation is actually fun and keeps the mood of the era, and the unlockable bonuses are actually worth the time to get, and show off a gamer's skillset.
Pros: There have been a lot of classic game compilations released in the past few years, but this particular title captures the essence of its time period. From the game's layout and interface, truly well-emulated games (MUCH better than the emulation set up on the PSOne), collectibles and bonus videos...
Cons: With subsequent releases of this title, there have been more games added to the the compilation. The PC, Macintosh, and Game Boy Advance versions have a handful of more titles to choose from, mostly home-brew games, and technical demos. Even though there is a significant number of titles to choos...
Summary: I grew up with the Atari games and thought I'd love this - but I just didn't. The menu and controls are excessively difficult to use - just getting to your favorite game takes a lot of needless moving around of menus.
Takes you back - Great for Asteroids & Battlezone !!

Summary: I thought this was a good value set with many early & some classic titles such as asteroids, centipede, pong , tempest, missile command and breakout among others. The menu has a retro/asteroid style theme going on with six different catagories.
Summary: I thought this was going to have all those really cool retro arcade games. There are a couple that I thought were pretty much like the arcade originals; Meteors, Centepede and oh actually that's it.
