5.0 out of 5 stars Great if you have the right controller. October 8, 2004
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you like playing classic games on your Xbox, then you definitely need the Xgaming X-Arcade joystick (ASIN B00008ELB0 or B00006I5ZX), preferably the 2-player version. I tried playing Midway's Joust, and the controller was really holding me back. These 80's games depend on "button smashing", and that's something the Xbox controller doesn't handle well.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it alone for the arcade ports March 2, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this primarily for the real arcade ports. I have had a look at the 2600+ games and there's as awful as I remember them. So that portion, whilst extensive, is only there for a nostalgia kick or if you absolutely have an old 2600 game you loved. The arcade parts are great though. My friend owns a real Asteroids machine and so I know how spot on the arcade version of Asteroids is. Plus the games store your high-scores - an important aspect I think.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly Fun after All These Years March 15, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Did you used to play with your Atari set for hours and hours? How about the classic arcade games like Battlezone and Crystal Castles? They're all in this collection!

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE CLASSICS ARE BACK! or are they? January 26, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I still remember Christmas 1977 when I first received my Atari 2600, it seems just like yesterday... When the Atari made it's way into the 80's everyone seemed to have one. I remember staying up all hours of the night to play these classic games with friends. The Silver Cartrige Age and Atari Comic Books were now popular, and I remember seeing the ads for all the new classic games. I even had the silver jacket with Atari on the back when I was twelve.
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!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars I used to play Atari
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.
