Summary: What a great collection of old 2600 games. Some of these are pretty lame, but it's worth the price for River Raid, River Raid II, Keystone Kapers, Pitfall and Pitfall II. The challenge of unlocking all the extra features and the like is a nice touch.
Summary: Having never played an Atari before, this gave me a good insight into some of the classic games from the era. I love being able to see how far video games have come since the 80's. My favorite game on this disk would be Keystone Capers.
Summary: If you were a child of the 80s and loved video games, than your [$$$]cannot be better spent. Between the awesome 80s soundtrack and the unlockables in this game it is really worth it. Why only 4 stars?
Summary: The games were okay Atari games. There area a lot of them however. But what I would have liked to have seen is re released versions of them. The most entertainment I got out of this was watcing the old atari commercials that I had unlocked.
Fantastic compilation for anyone who loves video games.

Summary: While the appeal may be limited to older gamers, the Activision Anthology is loads of fun. While similar compilations from Midway and Namco are bare-bones sets with 4 games and a few extras, the Activision Anthology contains no less than 48 games from the Atari 2600.
Summary: Okay, so I didn't nessesarily grow up when Atari was popular, but I certainly did grow up with much respect for it. I got my hands on a compilation of Atari 2600 goodness for the PC quite a few years ago, and it opened up a brand new interest of mine.
Summary: No kidding, the selection screen is just a few items short of looking like my childhood room. I had my Atari hooked up to a black and white TV because the costs of games kept me from up-grading to a color TV.
