Atari Anthology contains over 80 classic Atari games from the 80's. This makes it a better deal than the other classic game packs for the Xbox.Read more ›
This is just an AMAZING deal - you get over 80 complete, original games in the pack. I am in my 30s and haven't played many of these games since I was a teenager. Yet when I jumped into the Adventure game, I immediately knew all the maps, where to find the keys, were the dragons would be lurking. Playing Yar's Revenge, I became hooked for quite a while, remembering all the techniques to win the game. Somehow my brain has been hard wired to remember these things, and it's really cool to go back to a game now and say "Wow, I had TONS of fun with that!"
There are even full scans of the manuals, so you can read each manual from cover to cover if you wish.
In addition to all the Atari console games, you also get the original arcade games like Battlezone. I was a HUGE battlezone fan, driving my tank around and seeking out the enemy. It is so much fun to be able to play it at home!
It is just astounding that they fit all these games onto one CD. I used to scrimp and save for weeks to get just one cartridge! I would have thought it was a miracle back then to be handed 80 of them in a box and told "here, have fun". I would have played for years on end.
Sure, the graphics are old-style. You get blocks of color without much detail. Even on a big screen TV, it's sometimes hard to figure out what the maps are telling you. But that is part of the charm, of course. Lunar Lander is just as much fun now as it was then. Hangman doesn't need good graphics, nor does chess. Those mind games are a challenge no matter what they look like.
I really don't see a downside here.Read more ›
Everything is included - overlays, controls, side art and backgrounds are visible to give the true arcade look. They can even be toggled on and off if you'd rather play the arcade game fullscreen. Lots of background info is included as well as fun challenge modes and enhanced graphic options.
If you want pure Atari arcade conversions this is the one to buy - the 2600 games and the background info and extra graphics are just the icing on the cake.
For the price you can't go wrong. Recommended.
Then in 1984, too many games, and so little time... Then the crash, and then in 1985 Nintendo came about. For the next two decades we saw several systems come and go. Then the PC era for video games, and now we have the retro age. Now my kids are playing on the Playstation II the Atari Anthology, we still keep up with the times. Yes, the Atari games have "out of date graphics" but they are fun to play over and over again.
The Atari Anthology and Activision Anthology really do bring back the "good ol' days", but I feel several titles were left out... For instance: Space Invaders, Superman, Joust, Jungle Hunt, Pheonix, Defender, Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Galaxian, and others... The Only way to make EVERYONE happy is to release ATARI ANTHOLOGY II and complete the true collection!!!

Not that great for the games that are on it Not the memory lane I was looking forPublished 5 months ago by FayD
Though I did not get much joy out of this package. There were unfortunately so many games that were just not relevant to me in this packet it ended up being a bit of a waste.Published 20 months ago by J. Woda
