1.0 out of 5 stars Not your classic Centipede October 24, 2004
By Susan B
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
When I bought this game, I thought I was getting the classic arcade version of Centipede that I always enjoyed playing. But this is a tricked-out 3D version that shares only the name with the original Centipede. I loaded it on my computer, played for about 15 minutes, then never went back to it. Forgot how much I disliked it the first time and loaded it on another computer, then remembered why it was sitting on the shelf. If you are looking for Centipede like you remember it from the arcade game, this is not it.

The new version of Centipede is great! You can play the old Atari 8 bit version, but if you get board you can play the full rendered 3d game! Don't expect this too be a cheap cliche rip-off of your favotite arcade game, the new version is GREAT and only based upon the Atari version. But you shouldn't buy this ONLY for the Atari because if that's all you want you can download a demo version at a website like download.com but if you love the old one and you think you MUST see this new one, buy it!... WARNING: Surgeon General Warning. Very Addictive!:)

4.0 out of 5 stars I need to stick up for this game here... September 18, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I don't get it. Nowhere on the packaging for this game does it say its the original arcade version of Centipede, so how is that something to complain about...?

Having said that, I once had a demo version of this, and played it for hours. Unfortunatly, the disc wouldn't load into my newer PC, and I thought it was off to the same black hole as After Dark, Jill of the Jungle, Lemmings, etc.

Recently I found the CD ROM for this, case intact, at a thrift store. I'm so glad I did, too. Its a fun shoot-em-up game, with multiple levels and worlds to make your way through. I'm not a 'gamer'; I play games online for short periods of time and then get bored. But, this one is a different story. Well recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Game to Play December 6, 2005
By Dolphin
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this game from PSP 1, and it has been my favorite game to play ever since playing Millipede off of the NES. I wonder if they are going to make Millipede for Nintendo Gamecube because that one had the bombs in it although it's similar to Centipede. Centipede can be played either as arcade or adventure mode. I like the adventure mode, which is the best game to play. The arcade is fun and it has a lot of memories. Because of that I used to play Millipede as a child and then Centipede came and I had never forgotten the title or how it is played. I think this game should be on one of the hand held games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good ol' Centipede June 7, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game takes the original Atari arcade game and puts a new spin on it. This time you play a bean-counter named Wally and help him defeat the Centipede menace and all of its insect friends as they try to take over the world... again. With the same dynamics as the original as well as plenty of new features, this game has the best of two different generations of gaming all rolled into one.

I used to have this game when I was a kid and I loved it so much that I have recently wanted to play it again and that's why I got it. Part of the appeal of this game (at least for me) is nostalgia. It certainly isn't on the cutting-edge of gaming, but it's still plenty of fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and under-rated December 22, 2010
By Owithaw
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game mostly just as a salute to many good childhood memories playing. However, even now, ten years later, I still find it as amusing as before. There are many poor reviews, and yes, the graphic quality isn't of the highest caliber.

However, artistically I found the game to be ingenious, and gaming-wise a bit intense. The game is innocent enough, but especially in two-player mode, it's very easy to become very into it, which is part of the fun.

I highly recommend playing this (especially in split-screen mode) before you judge, as you don't know what you might be missing...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic in it's Own Right. July 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
I've never played the original arcade version, so if that invalidates my opinion, so be it. In any case, this is one of my favorite games. The difficulty curve as the game progresses, the bonus objectives you can accept or ignore depending on how much you want to challenge yourself, the arsenal of fun power-ups, the variety of enemies (each with it's own acoustically-rendered sense character), the boss-battles, all add up to an exceptionally memorable and enjoyable play experience in my opinion.
