4.0 out of 5 stars Classic fun March 27, 2005
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This compilation of classic Atari games includes Asteroids, Breakout, Centipede, Gravitar, Lunar Lander, Pong, Missile Command, Sprint, Tempest, and Warlords. This is a great buy for fans of classic arcade games, offering the additional lure of dual screen action and optional stylus control. Warlords even provides multiplayer action. Each version has both a classic version and a "remix" with new graphics, although in general I found that the remixed versions left me cold.

For the most part, the games work well with stylus control, and a few really shine. Missile Command is particularly impressive, and is the first home version I've seen that really captures the excitement of the trackball controlled coin-op original. Both screens are used. Incoming missiles are first visible on the upper screen, although satellites and bombers fly across the top of the lower screen. Antimissiles are fired simply by tapping the target point. Although stylus control must be done on the lower touch sensitive screen, you can hold down L, and your stylus clicks are transmitted to the corresponding location of the upper screen. However, this is a bit tricky, and by later levels I found myself working on the lower screen entirely. Graphics are a bit simplified compared to the arcade original, but work well on the small screen. The one thing I really miss is huge, expanding Game Over fireball, which has been dropped for some reason. Still, it is not a full recreation of the coin-op. As in most home versions, you do not have independent control of your 3 missile bases, eliminating a strategy element that was present in the arcade. Also, the "smart" missiles are much less smart than in the original version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, Mixed Bag July 26, 2005
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a retro games fan and have most of the originals of these games somewhere in the basement, and all the emulators on my N-Gage. For the classics you could just stick with the GBA version or an emulator on any other system, but frankly the DS is some of the best portable hardware and makes the classics more enjoyable. A few of the "remix" versions I actually like, including Centipede and Warlords. If you buy it for Tempest be advised that this is by far the weakest game on the title.

1.0 out of 5 stars I miss the 2600! January 12, 2009
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Despite the much higher technology of the DS to the 2600, these travesties are far worse than the 2600 versions of these games from the 80s. The use of the split screen is extremely badly implemented, the games are both difficult to play and dull, the sounds are horrendous, and the "graffiti" style "remakes" seem like a miserably failed attempt to make these games more "kewl" for younger players. All it does is make older players who remember the originals want to throw this cartridge across the room, and it is my bet younger players will STILL not be interested in these games.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fair June 27, 2005
A Kid's Review
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I wouldn't say this is the worst game ever. But out of my personal experience I found only 1 game was impossible to control. Also the worst part is that you and a friend need retro atari classics game card to play something like pong.

But on the good side many of the games such as asteroids and missle command were much easier to controll than using the control pad to play.

I would recommend this game to those who love boosting their high scores and to those who miss the days of the simple games of the 80's. It will have good replay value for those.

If your not that type of gamer stay away.

Thanks for reading :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Lame March 22, 2005
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I gotta agree with the other reviewer, this game is difficult to play. While the stylus works well with certain games, i.e. Zookeeper, it doesn't work out well on this game. Further, the games are not really arcade-like (not as finely detailed at all), and the remix versions are even worse. But there are 10 games, making it less than $3 each, and I guess that gives you some bang for your buck. Just don't expect too much.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful controls make playing impossible February 22, 2011
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm an avid retro-gamer. I don't even consider them retro games - I grew up with them and haven't stopped playing them yet. The games in this collection are good games...originally.

I don't even mind the graffiti make-overs. Can't say I like them, but I don't mind them.

No, the deal-breaker for this collection is the flat-out awful controls that make the games almost entirely unplayable.

Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining OLD video games! December 10, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's hard to imagine that this is how video games got started compared to how things are today. But, these are so much fun!! They are classic 80's arcade games and I love them. (Might be from the 70's - not sure! But, still loads of fun!)

Would definitely recommend this if you like old classics!
