Summary: I purchased this game to play a few retro arcade games that were listed on it, however you are REQUIRED to play some stupid, ridiculous newer games in order to unlock the old ones i want to play. Absolute bulls***! If i paid for the games, i should be entitled to play them, not have to earn the right to.
Summary: I thought this would be like other retro arcade video games where by you get to pick which games you want to play from a main menu and simply have fun playing them. However, this game is different. You get to choose a few of the games you want to play from a main menu. Other games like Kaboom are challenge games and you have to beat high scores to get to it. It was kind of hard trying to use the Wii remote to play the games.
WOW!! what the heck is activision doing? a waste of time and money!!

Summary: i cannot believe i bought this game. the first three times i played it i was frustrated. the controller is hard to aim and do what you want it to do. skee-ball was a let down!! cannot control movements. then i thought maybe there is a way to master the controls, cause Activision is a major name in video games,NO NO AND NO, it just is worse the more you play.
Summary: I'm an arcade/retro fan, and bought this title based on the arcade content. Unfortunately, the games themselves are very difficult to get to, and almost all of them must be unlocked by playing the games in a particular order and getting a good enough score on each (which is not terribly difficult, just tedious).
Summary: It spends a long time loading and as said in earlier reviews you can't directly select a game so the menus aren't clear as to what games are available. Just poorly designed and linked together. Maybe worth $10 and good to keep kids busy.
Summary: I actually only got this game because it included Kaboom!, and old arcade game that my family enjoyed back in the Atari era... Much to my disappointment, however, there are no options to just play Kaboom (or for that matter, any of the other games) by itself, the player must first earn enough points on some other useless games before Kaboom is "unlocked" for that player to be able to play it.
