Summary: This game is ranked highly on my PS2 game list. Its one for the ages and will always keep you entertained no matter how many times you put the disc in. While it seems like a very bland concept, underneath its seemingly boring interior lies a brilliant exterior that sets the theme for this game, the 80s. While I am not familiar with the 80s(born in 94) the stories my parents had always told me fascinated me in atleast experiencing the atari.
Summary: i was walking through the Game Stop store with seven dollars and after looking through three racks of games i was starting to think i should just go when i saw the game and thought it looked like a decent game. when i went home and played it i found out this game wasn't decent, it was amazing!!! this game is great for anyone and plus not only do you play great games but you can also enjoy a trip down memory lane and enjoy some classic eighties hits!
Summary: Activision Anthology takes you time traveling to the 80’s to play an Atari 2600. There are plenty of classics in this 48 game collection. The main menu in this game is a bedroom for the 80’s that has a television, an Atari 2600, an old radio, a cork board and a game cartridge rack. The game cartridge rack is where you select the game you want to play.
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!
