Summary: To be quite honest, when I reviewed Retro Atari Classics for the Nintendo DS back last year, the compilation's "Remix" editions, despite my hatred towards how hastily put together those were, didn't feel like they were butting in at all. Clearly the RETRO games were the highlights and were front and center. The Remix editions were...just there. Nevertheless, it's part of why I knocked off a star, but still. So why was I talking about that?
Summary: Some issues with this. It's nice to have portable versions of these classics, but the display and control options leave a lot to be desired. Unlocking the original 2600 games struck me as nearly impossible, I cheated with a save file. I like the 2600 games the most, but I wish you could choose something other than the visual emulation of an old TV. It DOES match the era these games came from, but straight pixel graphics on a black background would be preferable.
What a blast to play videogame classics on the PSP!

Summary: Pong, Battlezone, Asteroids, Centipede, Super Breakout, Missile Command, and more...all appear and sound exactly as they did in the arcades in the 80s and fit on a handheld device! Great price and quick shipping also.
