Are the people reviewing this game insane? They are actually typing things like "the graphics are bad" Hey guys: THESE ARE 30 YEAR OLD+ ATARI GAMES! Of course the graphics suck! Of course the control isn't great! These are games from the 70's! What do you expect?! Anyway, for you guys wanting to read a review that makes sense, here you go: These are dozens and dozens and dozens of exact replicas of the old classic home and arcade Atari games (i've listed them below). Same graphics and control we all remember. If your an old sentimental gamer like me and love to go back and play the old games like; Atari, NES and Sega Master, then you'll dig this. But if you're in your teens/early 20's and your big into the 'Next Gen' games then you probably wont like this game(s)

Well, let me start by saying that when I was a kid my atari 2600 was the envy of my friends. I grew up playing (and still have tucked away in my closet somewhere) a lot of the classic atari games.

This game, if anything, is more of a trip down memory lane for those of us who remember what it was like to knock a big square pixel back and forth across a screen with two long vertical lines that moved up & down on either side of the screen. Yes, i am referring to pong. I was actually surprised to see a few games like Adventure, Haunted House, and Swordquest included in this anthology. I played those games all of the time. I would've liked to have seen an old superman game that i used to play included in this anthology. Oh well!

Anyway, I think that for all the "old school" gamers out there this is definitely a good rental for nostaliga purposes. Aside from that, there really isn't much about this anthology that makes it a keeper.

It does make you appreciate the amazing graphics of today's consoles! We sure have come a long way. With regards to the Atari Anthology... I think I'll stick with Halo 3.

This game has some fun games that I remember from when I was a kid, but not enough to recommend. For me, I REALLY enjoyed about 1/4 of the games, and another 1/4 were fun, but not great. The rest either didn't hold my interest or didn't play well.
