I can't compare the gameplay to the Flashback 1 or 2, but I find the Flashback 3 to entertain my need for the games I grew up with. It does not contain every Atari game I would want, such as Space Invaders, Pac Man, and many Activision games for Atari, but still a decent list of 60 games. Some of my favorites being Battlezone, Asteroids and Air-Sea Battle, plus some unrealeased games like Aquadventure.
The quality of materials and construction is not the best, at least not like an original Atari, but for the price, it is okay. It is made by a Chinese manufacturer , AtGames. and licensed by Atari.
My only complaints are that it has games that originally required the Atari paddle controllers such as Super Breakout , Night Driver and Missile Command. The joysticks simply do not work well for these games. The good thing is that if you can get some original Atari paddle controllers as well as original joysticks, they are supposed to be able to work with the FB3.
Users will find that it may be helpful to look online for the original instruction manuals to help them learn more about how to play the games and select which ones are 1 or 2 players. There is an instruction manual with the FB3, but it only gives a brief description of each game.
For all you young people who were born in the high graphic video game era of XBox and Playstation, please understand that these are the original video games before your time, so before you say the graphics suck, that is because that's how video games were before you were born. So don't review this if you attempt to compare with modern gaming systems. It's for gamers who appreciate games, not graphics.
BUT...they took out 3 of the best games! They took OFF the game system PITFALL, RIVER RAID and LUNAR LANDER, 3 of the best games found in Flashback 2.0 (but also NOT included in flashback 2+). A lot of the games are duds and homebrews but it also has many of the great Atari classics like Asteroids, Missile Command, Battle Zone, Adventure as well as the Real Sports series. I really wish they'd have included the Atari 5200 and.or 7800 games, those were awesome, why it's just the old Atari games we find nastolgic? I am not sure. Plus I really wish they included the arcade hits like Pac-man, Defender, Zaxxon, ect and the Activision games, I understand it's due to licensing but I mean COME ON! It's an old 1980 game, do they always have to make money? Let them put out the old crappy graphics games! Maybe it will revive the interest and will want to buy updated versions on Playstation, who knows, but they do no one any good just sitting in a vault somewhere! Anyhow, it's a very good all in one Atari throw back, it's a cute sized console, about 1/2 of the original, the control's are like the original and well made. Get this now as it will prob be out of print, good just to hold on to this for memories sake.
PS- I bought my unit at Dollar General for $35.
3D Tic-Tac-Toe, Adventure, Adventure II, Air-Sea Battle, Aquaventure, Asteroids, Backgammon, Basketball, Battlezone, Bowling, Canyon Bomber, Centipede, Championship Soccer, Circus Atari, Combat, Combat 2, Demons to Diamonds, Desert Falcon, Dodge 'Em, Double Dunk, Fatal Run, Flag Capture, Frog Pond, Fun With Numbers, Golf, Gravitar, Hangman, Haunted House, Home Run, Human Cannonball, Maze Craze, Miniature Golf, Missile Command, Night Driver, Off the Wall, Outlaw, Realsports Baseball, Realsports Basketball, Realsports Soccer, Realsports Volleyball, Saboteur, Save Mary, Secret Quest, Sky Diver, Space War, Sprintmaster, Star Ship, Steeplechase, Submarine Commander, Super Baseball, Super Breakout, Super Football, Surround, SwordQuest: Earthworld, SwordQuest: Fireworld, Video Checkers, Video Chess, Video Pinball, Wizard, Yar's Revenge
As you can see, some of the sports games are needlessly duplicated; there are no less than THREE baseball titles, and why do we need the original Basketball and Soccer games when the far superior Realsports versions are included? Also, most of the "educational titles" are either for very young players (e.g. Fun With Numbers) or too complicated (unless you are already familiar with it, 3D Tic-Tac-Toe is a total mystery).Read more ›
