Product Description

Handball in a prison yard? In the early 1980s, Atari took this abstract concept and turned it into one of the most addictive video games of its time. By moving a paddle from side to side to volley a ball back and forth, the object was to chip away at the wall in front of you one brick at a time. You would eventually progress to thicker, more complex walls, more capricious balls, and shrinking paddles until you finally lost your last rebound.

Now on the PlayStation, Breakout sports a refined look but still has that simple, absorbing gameplay. You'll blast through bricks, blocks, barricades, and other bizarre barriers in both single and multiplayer modes--up to four players via the separately sold Multi Tap. This game also features a 3-D world with power-ups, new ball types, and interactive elements. Carom your ball off buildings and strange creatures to capture prizes and move through new levels.

I was really hoping it would be the "classic" breakout game. While some of the levels are fun(like trying to hit sheep over a fence) it was much to easy. There where only 4 worlds to beat and it wasn't hard to beat them. My son and I do have fun in the 2 player mode trying to see whose first to clear away their bricks. I would suggest renting this game for elementary school age kids, but buying this game would be a waste a money.

I'm always a bit dubious when any old video game, whose original incarnation is usually very near and dear to my heart, is dragged into the modern-day cuisinart of cutscenes, 3D animation, and prefabricated storylines. What amazed me is how well Breakout survived the translation. The game itself plays much like the original, only with vastly updated graphics and sounds, which don't hurt it at all. There are some techniques that it helps to learn, which you'll discover in the tutorial section. Every once in a while, mini-games that take on the form of interactive cutscenes break up the action - a mad chase with a hungry wolf, and a battle to keep a flock of ducks off of a raft, for example. Overall, Breakout has been reborn in a way that doesn't betray the original game's addictive potential. Very well done.

Finally a game that is fun, challenging and without the headaches that many of today's games give. I am 35 and my children are young, so we have been searching for a game that is just that...a game. Many of the racing/adventure games take too long to learn and require too many skills with the different buttons, etc. Breakout (and the new Space Invaders) brings the fun back without the technological headaches.
Cute story, music and graphics too!

Perhaps I was tainted by the job Hasbro Interactive did with Pong, but this just seemed to lack something. It was fun, but I wasn't left with the same sense of awe mixed with nostalgia that Pong left me with. It also was a bit too easy... I managed to complete almost all of the game in one gaming session. Over all, not a bad job, ....
