Pros: Good emulations of the arcade originals, A few of the evolved versions are decent
Cons: You have to overcome some overly difficult challenges to gain access to the Atari 2600 unlockables, The PSP's analog nub can't compare to the original games' trackballs and paddles, Most of the evolved games are poor
Summary: Atari Classics Evolved features timeless games such as Asteroids, Asteroids Deluxe, Battlezone, Centipede, Lunar Lander, Millipede, Missile Command, Super Breakout, Tempest, Warlords and Pong. These titles, presented in both an original and an evolved version, will maintain the original gameplay while adding up-to-date graphics.
Excerpt: Maybe it's just because I live in a Pokemon-obsessed house that the idea of Atari Classics Evolved connotes turning Pong into a Venusaur or something similar... Lucky for us there isn't any insidious plot between Atari and Nintendo, but as the Wii gains in popularity, you just never know... The actual content of Atari Classics Evolved is, not surprisingly, a bunch of old Atari games.
Conclusion: Atari Classics Evolved is a tight, concise little value-priced collection of honest-to-goodness great retro games. It's well worth the asking price and even offers a little more than you'd expect.
Excerpt: We've seen tons of compilations of classic games on consoles big and small over the last decade, and Atari has been one of the most prolific publishers of their classic games. Their newest one is Atari Classics Evolved which gives us classic and "evolved" versions of some excellent classic arcade titles along with a nice selection of hits from the first massively popular home console, the Atari 2600.
Excerpt: Z czasem człowiek staje się sentymentalny. Często wraca do przeszłości i wspomina, jak to kiedyś było pięknie. Słońce jakby mocniej świeciło, trawa była zieleńsza, świat weselszy, a gry dużo bardziej wkręcające. To ostatnie na szczęście zawsze można zweryfikować, dzięki takim tytułom, jak między innymi Atari Classics Evolved wydany na PSP.
