4.0 out of 5 stars Retro Gamers Can't Go Far Wrong Here 15 July 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a gamer. A gamer that enjoys retro games and this package delivers me all the way back to the late 70s early 80s, slip on a pair of flares and crack open a Party 7, this is fun!

The emulation of the arcade games seems spot on, I haven't noticed any glitches or sound drop outs which usually dog such things. The let down is probably more around the hardware, you realise just how small the DS screen is when you play asteroids & I don't know how playable it would be sat on a bus. However,sat at home, its fine.

Centipede, Tempest & Asteroids are probably the stand outs for me, both very playable and I'd hope that younger gamers would appreciate what a breath of fresh air these were upon their release.

The second half of the package covers the Atari VCS games, with Battlezone and Asteroids both recieving very good conversions of the arcade originals. I'd venture to suggest that no console has ever been pushed further than the VCS, with its limited hardware to get anything that looks and plays like the arcade cabinet is an achievement.

This is a package that has had a lot of care taken over it. Polish and professional with excellent emulation and a good selection of controls available. Its not the usual lazy dump of old roms onto a cartridge along with a half-cocked emulation. Its been lovingly crafted and I'd thank the developers for that.

Will you sit down and play the VCS games for hours? Probably not. But I don't think thats the point of this package. Its there to serve as a historical document and a reminder of less complicated days . . . Of course, whether you should buy this or not depends completely on whether you are interested in retro gaming and how home gaming started. If you aren't, then look elsewhere. if you are . . . then you'll have a lot of fun . . .

2.0 out of 5 stars unimpressive 3 Feb 2014
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
before buying this game seems really good value ; i was like 'wow 40 classic atari games for under £15!'. yes it sounds very good however once the game actually arrived and i put it in my ds i was very excited and started going through all the games on the menu screen and was soon dissapointed. the games are all split into different catergories such as arcade,adventure,action,sports and more.this is where the main problem starts, there is a huge lack of 'classic' games for example games such as space invaders, pacman, galaxian,river raid, pitfall,breakout and kaboom are no where to be found!now i know many of these games are activision etc and they probably couldnt get the rights but if you cant get any classic games then dont market the product as 'ataris greatest hits'. so my biggest dissapointment was the adventure section which consisted of only 5 games:adventure,

2.0 out of 5 stars Compromised. Report says 'Must try harder' 10 Mar 2011
By G. Ward VINE VOICE
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me get my cards on the table here nice and early. I've gone from being a regular gamer, to someone who enjoys games when I can find the time. I like games that deliver 'playability', 'repeatability' and 'challenge' and remember when I had an Atari 2600 at home. Buying this seemed like a 'no brainer' purchase way of re-living some of those classic titles, without the outlay (or reliability) worries of buying an old console. Not to mention that the 'portable' factor means that I could sneak in some old school gaming in my lunch break. Having tried this for a week (so far) I'm a little disappointed, to say the least, and can't see this being an attractive offering to anyone other than someone who's trying to tap into those early gaming days.

First up, the information about the 'game' cartridge is a little mixed, with different information as to just how many games are included. You get nine arcade emulations and more than 40 Atari 2600 console emulations. These are right down to the original sound (which is fun for a while, then you'll really want to turn it down to a whisper)

The Nintendo DS is vastly superior in processing power to an old arcade machine and these certainly never going to be any 'glitches' while running these tiny programs. However, the size and resolution of the screen really does hinder the playability and enjoyment of many of these games.

I was really looking forward to playing 'Lunar Lander' and 'Asteroids'. Both games holding a special place in my memory (and taking a chunk of my pocket money), but they're incredibly difficult to play when you can't make out the screens clearly and can't finesse the controls. Deeply disappointing, for me.

Some good old fashioned games to play. Instructions could be a bit better, but otherwise very enjoyable. Pong is great!
