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.
good variety of first gen games, if you don't mind very eary graphics.

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.
Takes you back - Great for Asteroids & Battlezone !!

Summary: If you want to play Asteroids, Space Duel, Tempest, Centipede, Missile Command and Battlezone using the SAME ORIGINAL CODING as the arcade games from your youth - then this is the game for you.
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.
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.
Summary: Activision released their library of Atari 2600 games many times before but this time they succeeded in capturing the nostalgic 80's feel that makes this package a great 'musuem' for those of us who cut our teeth on the early game systems.
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?
