Summary: I Gave this Game 4 stars because The controls are awkward with Centipede, Millipede, Pong and Breakout. It's hard to zero in on a position. I found that to be the case with Missile Command as well. However, I must say, Asteriods and Asteriods Deluxe Rock and I'll tell you why. This is the only emulation of Asteriods I have ever found to have that rapid fire you remember from the arcade when you hit rocks.
Summary: This is a great collection of classics. I've always loved Tempest. In addition to the classic format, you have the option of playing the enhanced version - both are very cool. This is great to carry along for a quick game. The only caveat is that it does take a bit to get used to the controls for each game. Remember, centipede and millipede originally had a roller ball, tempest had a dial, etc.
Summary: For twenty bucks, this PSP title is actually pretty good, especially for the nostaglia value. Most of these games were "state of the art" back a quarter century ago. I remember them well. My favs from the early 80s were BattleZone, Missile Command, and Lunar Lander. These games are still FUN to play today, in a casual gameplay setting, and you don't even need to read an instruction manual to learn them if never played before.
Summary: I was really undecided on this product but am very happy with this purchase now. While it's true most people won't be able to unlock the 2600 games in this UMD, the 11 arcade classics are fun, well done and worth the price. Some of the evolved classics actually provide improved game play and are more than just a graphics update.
Summary: I think this game is most enjoyed by people who appreciate classic Atari games. You get 11 games to start and have to unlock 50 more. The evolved versions play exactly the same way but with beefed up graphics. There are 2 drawbacks to this game: 1. The play control for roller ball/paddle games is sub-par with the psp controls.(pong, centipede, etc) 2. Its entirely too difficult to unlock all 50 games. They should have made it where you gradually unlock the games.
Summary: The idea for this game is fantastic. Take a bunch of classic arcade games we've all played a million times before and update them with newly improved, "evolved," graphics. And they rock! The graphics are great, the sound effects are sufficiently retro without sounding silly, and the games retained their same heart. Overall, a really fun PSP game. Having said that, however, there are two distinct problems.
Summary: In my opinion this is the one of the best conversions of Arcade games for the psp, maybe even better than Namco's arcade port. The collection of games and the fun they provide are just so top drawer. I really like when the various companies reproducing arcade classics for ports onto various computer and gaming interfaces get creative and make up new versions of the of the old game and add them into packages with the classics.
