Summary: THIS GAME WORKS ON THE XBOX 360 WITHOUT ANY DOWNLOADS BUT PURPLE LINES APPEAR WHERE THERE IS WRITING ON THE GAME The atari anthology is a massive collection of games for the legendary atari 2600 and some are from the arcade ,these classic games will only appeal to you if you grew up with them in the 70s and early 80s because these games are nowhere near as good as the games we have nowadays so people that havn't played an atari game yet will probably say they're boring...
Summary: I bought this package originally for the Atari 2600 VCS games and I have to agree with the other reviewer that the novelty of these actually wears off quite quickly. The games aren't quite as much fun as I remember them being although they are very accurately emulated. The real stars in this package are the actual arcade emulations like Battlezone and Missile Command. These can be played with the original arcade machine art work (or without) as the screen surround.
Summary: Great to see this had come out on xbox with the current trend for retro games. Firstly, nothing has changed; it's the same games, the same graphics and the same sounds as when I was a kid cutting my teeth on my first computer games. But a lot has changed since then so if you buy this to recreate those memories you are probably going to be disappointed.
Summary: Why do I buy stuff like this, they really must see people like me coming. This anthology is obviously very much of its time. There is not a single atari vcs game on this disc that stands up to scrutiny anymore, the novelty value disappears within minutes when you start to play them. I mean what exactly is the point of a game like Yars Revenge?, I didn't like it the first time when I bought it on the vcs and I've bought it a second time!.
