5.0 out of 5 stars Full List of Games, November 13, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: At Games Atari Flashback 4 Classic Game Console (Console)
I already own the original Flashback, and Flashback 2. My Flashback 4 is on the way. Anyone that grew up in the 80's and owned the original Atari 2600 will want to own the the Flashback 4 which now has wireless controllers and even more games. My review is basically to provide the complete list of games included since I had a hard time finding it, and I'm sure many others are looking for it too. I'll update my full review when my Flashback 4 arrives.

The full list of games includes:

3D Tic-Tac-Toe

Air·Sea Battle
Aquaventure
Asteroids

Edit 11/14/2012:
I have my Flashback 4, and it is pretty much as expected with a couple of minor annoyances. I'm slightly disappointed in the wireless controllers. First, you need a screwdriver to install the batteries (not included). The battery covers do snap in place, so I didn't bother putting the screws back in. Second, the controllers require you to be pointing them directly at the console, and holding them level. The controller's range is good, but if the controller is even slightly tilted up or down, it doesn't respond. The player 1 controller has the console's buttons on it, which is a great feature. You can also use wired controllers (not included) if you'd like. I tried my Flashback 2 controllers, and they work fine. As for the games themselves, they are what they are. From what I remember as a kid, they seem exactly the same. I haven't noticed any glitches or bugs. My 61" HDTV makes the 8-bit graphics look even worse than they are. But that is the charm of these games. I'm gonna connect the game to an old 19" color TV I have in storage just for nostalgia, and keep it in my basement. The Atari Flashback 4 is definitely meant for the older crowd looking to bring back memories. Today's kids would laugh at this console. They can laugh all they want. I give it 5 stars for bringing back a lot of memories.

What is the difference between this one and the other flashback versions?

River Raid was an Activision game, not an Atari game.

The biggest difference is more games and wireless controllers. River Raid was actually included with the Flashback 2, but not the Flashback 2+.

Thank you for the game list.. couldn't find it! Wish it had Zaxxon and Pitfall in there!

Spot-on review, I'm going to find a used Flashback 2. Not having Pitfall! (also Activision) is a real deal-breaker. The older Flashback models have all the games I want except Tempest but it's not enough to pass on Pitfall!

It's a shame that the vendors on here are jacking up the price well above retail. I got mine at Rite Aid for $40. Some of these Amazon vendors are now selling it for over $80.
