Remarkably underwhelming package

Jack-of-All Games, Amazon
28 October 2013
  • 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?

A decent history lesson.

  • 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.

  • Summary: We bought this to play in the waiting rooms of the doctors office... It is a fun game to play to keep you entertained for short periods of time. Still trying to get use to playing games on a PSP.

  • Summary: My son wanted this as a stocking stuffer. I think he laughed at the type of games we use to play compared to the video games now a days.

Not the best emulation

Michael Parker "Collector", Amazon
22 September 2011
  • Summary: As an avid collector of old school compilations I'm always looking for the best versions. Knowing that portable-wise there are several "arcade perfect" discs available only for the psp I broke down and bought one. As soon as I turned the game and started Centipede I saw problems. Graphics were spot on, but the sounds and even the speed of the sounds were a bit off. Same as the original XBLA version. Simply put there is no excuse for that sloppiness in this day and age.

Difficult to Control

  • Summary: This has a nice concept but playing it on the PSP is very difficult, the faster games especially are very hard to control. Still has fun games just harder to control.

Not a classic feel

J. Ream "getalonglittledoggie", Amazon

  • Summary: I was excited to get this game. I loved playing these games at the pizza parlor or bus station many years ago. But, what I found out is while the games are the same the feel isn't. For example, Centipede, Millipede, Breakout and Tempest are all great games but to play them on my PSP you have to turn the PSP 90 degrees and play from one end. From a screen standpoint it makes sense to use the longest part of the PSP screen to mimic the original games.

Ask yourself before buying this...do you really want to play Atari 2600 games all over again?

Dennis A. Amith (kndy), Amazon

  • Summary: Back in the early 80's, I was a proud owner of many Atari games. My parents would buy me and my brother the latest games, kids from school would come over to check it out and had a relative who worked at Atari and gave us these chip like device that would play on an adapter for our 2600.
