Summary: I'm old school- so I couldn't pass on the opportunity to play a few games from the 80's. Unfortunately, there are only a handful of games that I actually play, but they are playable and replayable for hours at a time!
Summary: I bought this game as part of a buying-spree for my PSP where I got the Namco game set, the SEGA set and this one. It was an attempt to fuel the nostalgia. My mistake. Except for the Namco set, all others were a dud! This one in particular. THe controls are clutchy, the game response is off and the menu is just terrible. Avoid avoid avoid!
Summary: I originally purchased this mainly for Pitfall and Pitfall 2. With Seaquest and River Raid as part of this package, as well as many more, I forgot how much fun the old Atari classics are. I'm in my mid 40's and I love love playing this as much as some of the new releases for the PSP. A lot of fun for all you Atari fans.
Summary: I'm in my 40's. If you are too, then you will probably love this PSP game. If you played the Atari 2600, these games WILL NOT DISAPPOINT. The graphics, soundtrack and play are exactly the same. And each game has a little history option to get some background that we may have not taken the time to learn back when. Many of these games I remembered, but there are also several that I had forgotten about and really enjoyed getting re-acquainted with them.
Summary: This is without a doubt the best compilation of great Activision classics for the Atari 2600 around. It also contains a great 80's soundtrack, although it doesn't have a jukebox setting. Another thing I don't like about this game is that it doesn't automatically save your progress, so if you unlock an achievement and don't save it yourself, you'll lose it! But aside from that, I highly recommend it to anyone who respects retro gaming at its finest.
Summary: If you're not an old-school Atari addict, you won't be entertained with this release from Activision. If you do love all things Atari, then this release will bring back some much loved 2600 memories. Onto the list of games packed into this release: 1. Atlantis 2. Barnstorming 3. Beamrider 4. Boxing 5. Bridge 6. Checkers 7. Chopper Command 8. Cosmic Commuter 9. Crackpots 10. Decathlon 11. Demon Attack 12. Dolphin 13. Dragster 14. Enduro 15. Fishing Derby 16. Freeway 17.
More Atari classics. Remixed? Try "Rehashed!" Still fun though.

Summary: This is yet another version of the Activision collection of games originally designed for the Atari 2600 Video Computer System back in the early 1980s. Like those versions, this serves as a nice museum piece to showcase these old games, featuring advertising and art for manuals, boxes and patches.
