1) The graphics are very similar to what they were on those old consoles & upright machines- NO better. If you're okay with that, then great.
2) The game play experience is a little different because the precision of joysticks on an upright video game was better (believe it or not), so aside from being older, the XBox controller won't make you any better (or really even as good) as you used to be, or could be. I happen to still own a couple of upright machines, so a back to back was easy to do with a couple of these games. Btw, I bought both Vol1 and Vol 2.
If you loved those old games (or think you did:), I'd say go ahead & buy- I'm still glad I did, but it would have been nice to see XBox somehow improve the controls/experience on some level.
The Atari 2600 games are interesting to see again, but I don't think anyone will be obsessively playing any of those again, just consider that part of the game as a time capsule better left unopened.
These Atari Arcade flashbacks would be better if they were similar to Pacman Championship 2 -- allow you to install the games individually, and access them without having to load up the entire collection. I wouldn't mind having Centipede added to an Arcade Classics game group on the X-Box One, but changing a disc just to play Centipede is a lot of trouble
NOTE: I was able to download Ms. Pacman for $4 from Microsoft Store, maybe the companies that own the rights to these games should take that approach over trying to put all of their game titles into one large, over priced grab bag.
