Product Description

Amazon.com

For those of you with fond memories of the Atari 2600--the granddaddy of home video game systems--this retro collection of first-rate titles from Activision is a must-have. This comprehensive disc features a whopping 30 games, including hits such as Pitfall, one of the best games ever made for the Atari 2600, and lesser-known (with good reason) titles such as Cosmic Commuter. As an added bonus, you can listen to audio CDs during gameplay. We recommend music from the early 1980s for the full "turn back the clock" effect.

But if your video gaming experience doesn't date back to the early Reagan era, you should probably take a pass on A Collection of Activision Classic Games for the Atari 2600. By today's standards, the Atari 2600 is about as technologically dated as you can get, and the rudimentary gameplay and primitive graphics and sounds of its games aren't likely to win over any new fans. --Joe Hon

Pros:

  • Comprehensive collection of first-rate Atari 2600 games
  • Ability to listen to audio CDs while playing games
Cons:
  • Little to no appeal outside of older fans of video games

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining but imperfect. July 18, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
For the money, this is a decent deal; 29 Activision games and 1 Imagic game for less than a buck a pop. As anyone who remembers the Atari will tell you, though, these kinds of games aren't usually engrossing; half the fun is being able to play a game for a few seconds or minutes and then popping in a new game. The more games you have, the more you're likely to do this. So, you'll find yourself constantly stopping games in progress and starting up others...
The overall package has some problems. First, considering the small size of the ROMs, there is no reason Activision couldn't have fit their entire catalogue on here, including Imagic and Absolute games (minus the licensed titles). It might have been difficult to emulate Pitfall II since it contained a separate sound chip, but everything else could have been included easily.
Second, the loading times are bizarre- these games are only 4-8k in size originally; the load times are so long that it seems the emulator is being loaded up fresh every time- this makes switching between games annoying. It would have been a lot more efficient to simply load the emulator into memory first, and then just load a ROM into memory as needed.
Third, an option to use the PSX mouse/trackball or analog/Dual Shock for Kaboom! would have been nice. Kaboom! was a paddle game originally, and digital controls just don't cut it.
Fourth, I would have loved to see some multimedia content. Considering the paucity of the instructions in the manual, scans of the original manual would have been nice; interviews with programmers and/or a multimedia history segment would have been really nice.
For the joystick games (all but Kaboom!), the controls are pretty good.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm ten again! I'm ten again! Oh no, i'm thirty-one. March 17, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a wonderful look back on the way I wasted my early teens. I bought the disc for my 16-year-old brother and we spent the entire night playing Pitfall, Enduro, Chopper Command, River Raid, you name it. I only wish Atari would put together some of their own classics: Joust, Berzerk, Combat, Asteroids, or Space Invaders. Oh no, I'm thirty-one.

I bought this game because I loved the old Atari games. My husband, brother, mother, father, and I all enjoyed the game very much. It reminded us of when we were younger and allowed us some good times and memories. I asked my daughter to come and see what our games used to look like. We compared them to the games of today. She was amazed at the difference. She sat down to watch at first, but she couldn't help herself, soon she picked up the controller and started playing. I had to make her shut off the machine and go to bed. I also love that these games do not have so much profanity and other things that the newer games have. Also they do not spin around so much that you get a headache. Everyone in our family loves this game. It is excellent.

This includes many of the greatest games that were on the Atari 2600. I purchased it for my mother for Christmas as these were some of her fondest memories as a child. It's a great game to bring back great memories.

3.0 out of 5 stars It Brings Me Great Memories May 6, 2003
By Jason
There have been a lot of Activision classics I used to play 20 years ago, someone missed the cut in this CD, but most I have played before and it renewed my interest to try again and playing it the way I used to play it on the Atari 20 years ago.
I may have been a smart kid, but I always used B difficulty. Now I use the "A" level to advance my knowledge and believe me, my scores have been pretty good the way I remember it.
If anyone still has a PS1, they should get this CD, especially if they have one with the LCD screen for travel purposes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, But if You Have a PS2 Pass it by August 6, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Don't get me wrong, I loved this collection. I'm old enough to rember fighting over the Atari 2600 with my brother and sister. You'll find all the classic old-school games here, and a few not so classic. River Raid 1, River Raid 2, and Sea Quest were the best, and Pit Fall alone was worth the price. If you only have a PS One, and can rember the Atari 2600, get this disk. However, if you have a PS 2 there is another collection under the same title with all the same games as this one as well as some that weren't included on the PS One version. The PS 2 version also has some other nice bells and whistles and is, for my money the better collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's not bad, but not the greatest.
Most of these game I have for my Atari 2600, but I'm so used to gamepads now (it's been 30 years), that playing them on a more modern system is the way to go. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality And Emulation
While you do get 30 Activision games in this compilation, the gameplay isn't as smooth as it would be on a regular atari 2600. It is much more choppy with a slower frame rate. Read more
