Each game can be played full-screen or with simulated cabinet art. In addition to the games themselves, the Archive section features historically relevant items such as flyers, promotional art and cartridge scans, as well as a video clips of an interview with Atari founder Nolan Bushnell. An Atari sticker is included in the package as a bonus.

Commemorating the 30th anniversary of Atari, this anthology showcases 12 of the greatest arcade games to come from the industry's first bright star. The games are Asteroids, Asteroids Deluxe, Battlezone, Centipede, Crystal Castles, Gravitar, Millipede, Missile Command, Pong, Super Breakout, Tempest, and Warlords.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best game compliations ever July 3, 2001
This a a great release for Sega Dreamcast owners. The ATARI ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION is compilation of 12 Atari ARCADE games. These are not emulations of 2600,5200 or 7800 Atari games. These 12 games are perfect emulations of 12 classic arcade games that you are sure to have nostalgic feelings for.
The games are as follows:ASTEROIDS, ASTEROIDS DELUXE, BATTLEZONE, CENTEPEDE, CRYSTAL CASTLE, GRAVITAR, MILLIPEDE, MISSILE COMMAND, PONG, SUPER BREAKOUT, TEMPEST, and WARLORDS. Did any of these game titles evoke fond memories? Can you remember the arcade you were in and the sounds of these games? If you are such a person, get the ATARI ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION is a must buy title!
You also get slideshows on each game. The slideshows show the cabinet and also some of the papers that arcade owners got with the machines as well as magazine ads for the games. Plus, it shows the artwork and what the 2600 and 5200 cartridges looked like.
Almost all of these games are highly addictive and I remember playing most of these in the arcades. All of the games are simple to learn and a lot of fun! Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice collection of classic arcade games July 1, 2001
These games are some of the best games ever seen in arcades. Back in those days you had to rely on great gameplay, not great graphics. Of all the games on this CD, Tempest is my favorite. It is considered the most popular arcade game in history, and I know why. But all the other games deserve mention, too. Centipede is a top-quality shooter, Asteroids is another fun shooter (with some nice vector graphics), Millipede is the sequel to Centipede with tons of added features (and more enemies), Gravitar is a VERY challenging game, Crystal Castles is a fun game with fantastic isometric graphics (a trackball or mouse should be used with Crystal Castles), Pong is the grandfather of arcade games (it's still very fun after almost 30 years), and Super Breakout takes Pong's "ball and paddle" format to the next level in a very entertaining way. I think this is the only Atari collection available for Dreamcast, so if you want classic Atari games on Dreamcast, then get this quick.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Hail Vector Graphics!!!!!!!!! September 4, 2001
I live in New York, and there's actually no shortage of retro gaming emporiums selling reconditioned or brand new consoles and games from the "Silver Age" of the mid-to-late '70s. But I'm also lazy, and never quite got up the energy to invest in yet another system, albeit the one I grew up with, and home to the greatest games of all time. So I take the shortcut back in time, snagging all the great retro titles for my GameBoy (which I bought simply so I could play Missile Command and Defender), PC & Dreamcast. This collection is leaps and bounds above all others, in terms of the quality and recognizability of the games, and is dead-on in recreating the original arcade experience, right down to the original cabinet art.
These are the games that made gaming so addictive--Tempest, Centipede, Battle Zone, Asteroids, and so many others. I had em all when I had a 2600, and I am thrilled to be playing them again (especially Tempest--kept my wife up all night to those breeeeeeeeops and hyperspace jumps). The sole occasional drawback is the Dreamcast controller, which is great for some games (like Tempest or Centipede) but is woeful with others (Breakout & Pong especially). The old Atari paddle would be so much better, though I can't see Sega (or a 3rd party company) producing a custom peripheral for a budget-priced title.
As if all this wasn't enough, the game has a DVD-style gallery section, with tons of old Atari ads, buttons and stickers, which you can zoom in on to incredible detail (how come my Terminator 2 DVD can't do THAT?????). Plus there's an insightful video interview with the creator of Atari--really takes us back to the geek-ridden origins of the computer games world.
Now, if Infrogames can team up with LucasArts to port the old Star Wars arcade game to Dreamcast, my life would be complete...

4.0 out of 5 stars Technology is wonderful...isn't it? Isn't it?! August 8, 2001
Being an avid gamer since day 1, I've owned [or still own] most every game console created for the home market, along with spending most all of my money in my youth on playing games at arcades. Foolishness, surely.
It's only natural, then, that nostalgic retro-types such as myself are drawn to repackaged originals from the arcade for use on home systems.
Having invested probably $1500 [from my youth] in this newest release from Atari, I figured dropping an additional 1% of that amount on the Dreamcast disc would be money well spent. I was right :)
The games are dead-accurate in their being ported-over to the DC and the added super-bonus of getting all of the vintage magazine ads and the like on the disc is just the icing on the cake. Being able to pan & scan those items, along with cartridge labels and original boxes is just icing on top of icing. It's almost perfect!
The downsides? Control with the analog stick on the DC can be tricky compared to the number of original Atari controls it's supposed to replace from the upright cabinets of 20 years ago. I find the games are better navigated [albeit only slightly so] with the digital D pad. Although game mags give this disc top honors for sound, I have to say that if you're using a hi-powered entertainment system like I do, you might find the sounds closer to that of so many fingernails going down a chalkboard: it's simply horrible when amplified to normal listening levels. I expect that if it was only piped thru the TV's speakers that it might be tolerable. But get too much chaos on-screen while playing Millipede and the aforementioned fingernails begin their full-tilt wailing. Dogs in the neighborhood begin baying and yelping.
