Summary: I've owned this title in the past and now it seems even better than I recall. Never owed Activision, but I think I may have liked it more than the Intellivision that I did. This title may not be for everyone except those who have nostalgia for the "good-ol'-days" (retro) of gaming. In fact, I challenge modern game players who think that today's games are difficult to play some of these old games. My theory is that they may not even have the patience...
Summary: this may sound odd,but i LOVE 80s stuff.so when i first rented this game,i was in HEAVEN!it has a LOT of cool games on it,some really cool 80s songs (my favorite is ''the tide is high'' by blondie),and the commercials are COOL! anyone who likes the 80s will simply LOVE this game.
A great collection, better than anything Namco or Midway did

Summary: For the past few years, Midway and Namco have been rereleasing old games in their collections. They would throw 6 to 8 early 80's games on a cd with nothing extra and charge an insane amount of money. Then along came Activision. Activision obviously learned from Midway and Namco's mistakes. Instead of 6 to 8, you get 45 Atari 2600 games. Want extra features? Ok, how about TV comercials from the 80s and those patches you could earn for their games.
Ahhhh... Reliving my early 80's Atari childhood. Sweet. :-)

Summary: These are the classic games I played as a kid. Although primitive, they were *very* addictive and kept you saying, "Just one more game!" And what a bargain! ... Well worth it. Although about half the games are not really worth playing today, there are several must-have classics: Pitfall, Pitfall 2 (like 2D Metroid in a jungle), H.E.R.O., Kaboom, Cosmic Ark, Demon Attack.
Summary: Are you tired of video games that are so complex that you could get a Ph.D. in quantum physics and learn to play three musical instruments in less time than it would take to master one game? Then this compilation of old, old, OLD school video games is for you! Adhering strictly to the less-is-more aesthetic, there are dozens (!) of games in here, each of which is so simple you can learn the rules in less than a minute.
Summary: This is a very awesome game for all the fans of atari, even if you aren't a fan, you'll like this game! Let me tell you that it has all the games from the PS One Activision Classics plus 20 more! Let me just say that you won't be disappointed! P.S. By the way...all you Pitfall 2 fans will love this game!
Summary: It's hard to believe now that kids used to wait with Vice City level expectations for games like Pitfall!, Enduro and River Raid. I can believe it though, because I was one of those kids. In fact, I distinctly remember wishing that I could buy thirty or forty of them at once and go on a five day jag of button mashing. It took twenty years but... my opportunity is finally here.
Summary: Activision, una de las grandes Activision es una compañía a la que tengo gran cariño. Parieron los mejores juegos del catálogo de la mítica Atari 2600, que proporcionaron mucha diversión a este que os escribe. Todo comenzó cuando un grupo de programadores de Atari, no suficientemente reconocidos por su talento, decidieron marcharse de la compañía y fundar la suya propia para trabajar en mejores condiciones y tener el reconocimiento que merecían a la vista de los juegos...
Pros: Un recopilatorio casi perfecto
Cons: Por poner un pero, algunos títulos que se han caído
Summary: Con más de 45 juegos, Activision Anthology no transporta 30 años atrás en el tiempo y nos recuerda nuestra querida Atari 2600, con nuevas ediciones, con los favoritos de todos, y con juegos que no habían vuelto a ser editados en otras recopilaciones, compilando así el pack perfecto para nuestra consola PS2. La lista de Juegos viene siendo: Barnstorming Boxing Checkers.
