I can't do much more justice to the review than "zooter" - if you need to escape the wife, kids and mortgage for a couple of hours, nothing could serve up spite better than the archaic graphics and 2 bit sound of a monotonus game like Astrosmash! We all have better things to do with our lives, but with reality TV marinating every watercooler conversation wouldn't it be nice to respond to Susie Sitcom with a snide, "You know, I missed Idol Survivor Factor last night because I broke my high score on Space Hawk!" Then Susie asks, giggling, "wasn't that an Intellivision game?" "You bet, and it looks even worse on my 60" widescreen home theater than it did in 1981! Now back to work."
If you grew up with Intellivision, this really is a must. Even if you play it for 30 minutes and never go back, you can hear the annoying sound of those laser cannons in Space Battle one last time. A couple of feautures that were surpising upsides: the background music tracks (I swear that New Order sang the Intellivision headliner tune), the documentary and interviews with the programmers. I was into the whole Blue Sky Ranger programmer posse that had a solid web presence through the dot-com bubble and was glad to fork over a couple bucks in their direction now that they have a solid product offering. Good for them. These extras are nice for those who are informed or have the slightest interest in the 1980s videogame wars. The downsides - the controller interface is alright, but really makes some of the games almost impossible to play.

I was raised on Intellivision. If you were, too, you know which games you want to play. You can also, I presume, look at an Xbox controller and see how there could be difficulties translating the disc-and-keypad controls from Intellivision to the Xbox.
If you aren't very familiar with the Intellivision, you're not really the retrogaming target audience, and you should probably move on.
Assuming you're still with me, here's the good news. The games that are in the collection are recreated spot-on perfectly. The controller works exceptionally well given obvious limitations. A right thumbstick-right trigger combination simulates the keypad 1-9 by default. You get used to it, and I certainly can't think of a better way it could have been done. But in games where it makes more sense to do it another way, it was done another way. A, B, X, and Y fire down, right, left, and up, respectively, in Night Stalker. That is, this package was put together by people who understand the games.
And, as far as the games in the package go, basically, all the first party (Mattel and INTV) games are here except the ones that are lost to licensing entanglements. Yes, it means you lose some of the system's best games. Tron Deadly Discs, Burger Time, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, and Masters of the Universe are not included, and it's a shame.
Further, no matter how much you loved the system, you'll probably admit that some of the games haven't really stood the test of time all that well. Two of the machine's flagship games, Baseball and Astrosmash!, stand out in particular.
But there are 60-some games here. For a $20 package, if you can dig up four or five of them to rekindle your love affair with, you're doing exceptionally well.

This isn't really fair, since I haven't actually purchased this product (I don't own a PS2). But I have played it extensively on a friend's machine.
Those of us who owned an Intellivision rather than an Atari felt like members of an enlightened cult. Atari was Duran Duran; we were the Violent Femmes. In other words, we knew our games had the better action, the better controller, the better graphics, certainly the better commercials - but we somehow felt ignored by the general game-playing public. This was fine with us. We wanted Intellivision to be our dirty little secret.
Which brings me to this pack. The makers did an excellent job of translating Intellivision's still-unique game controller, and in their ways, the games are still fun and even challenging. I get chills, even now, when I see the little Running Man guy do his super-smooth slow-motion sprint. "Snafu" is and always has been a so-simple-it's-brilliant little gem, "Utopia" is great two-player fun (never before or since has super-slow game play built so much tension), "Astrosmash" rocks (pun intended), "Sea Battle" is tricky and creative, and, well, there you go. The rest are a decidedly mixed-bag. You'll squeal with joy when you fire each one up, you'll say "Oh, I remember this one, it's GREAT," and you'll get bored before 10 minutes are up.
But I think most buyers purchasing this set aren't looking for great games. They're looking to recapture that magnificent anticipation of being 10 and popping in a new cartridge (one your folks paid $30 for) and playing, wide-eyed, nifty cuts like "B-17 Bomber" and "Space Spartans." They're looking for the bittersweet taste of nostalgia, in other words. But I think they're out of luck.
