Atari Anthology Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: At twenty bucks, Atari Anthology will either seem like the deal of the century, or a complete waste of money, depending on the person asked. Younger gamers always ask us when compilations of Genesis and PS One games are coming out, so you can guess their reactions to a group of games that were the impetus for terms such as blocky graphics, clipping, and aliasing.

Atari Anthology Review

24 November 2004
  • Excerpt: Packed with 85 old games from the Atari canon and available at a budget price, Atari Anthology is a great way to relive some of the high points of classic gaming. However, the less-than-perfect emulation tarnishes what would otherwise have been an incredible trip down memory lane. $19.99 for 85 games is a pretty great deal, even if some of the re-creations aren't perfect.
  • Pros: Tons of great games., Low, low price., Easier than tracking down the original games.
  • Cons: Inaccurate sound and graphics., Other, better compilations are available.

Atari Anthology

14 May 2005
  • Conclusion: Mit 85 Spielen fällt die Atari Anthology auf den ersten Blick ziemlich umfangreich aus. Allerdings handelt es sich ausschließlich um Minispielchen. Solche Klassiker wie Breakout und Centipede üben auch heute noch einen gewissen Reiz aus – insbesondere für Punktejäger. Nicht so toll sind dagegen die zahlreichen Schrottspiele der Sammlung. Da hapert es überall – sei es die Grafik, der Sound, die Steuerung, der Umfang oder auch alles zusammen.
