    If you grew up in the ’70s, like I did, and spent too much time, and too much money in the arcades, then you can’t go wrong with this! For less than a Starbuck’s cappucino, you get 18 of Atari’s CLASSIC arcade games. And when I say ARCADE, I mean the EXACT SAME GAMES you pumped SO MANY quarters into!

    Asteroids
    Asteroids Deluxe
    Battlezone
    Black Widow
    Centipede
    Millipede
    Crystal Castle
    Gravitar
    Lunar Lander
    Missile Command
    Major Havoc
    Liberator
    Red Baron
    Space Duel
    Super Breakout
    Tempest
    Warlords
    Pong

    Those games alone are worth the price of admission, to me anyway. And infinitely more fun to waste time with than Solitaire, (talk about LAME!) The other 62+ games look to be mostly ports of old Atari 2600 games, which ARE sort of lame, even by 1980′s standards. But I’ve spent a few hours (re-living my childhood) playing those as well.
    If you’re looking for cutting edge, 3D graphics, state-of-the-art video games, move on. But if you’re looking for a cheap fun trip down memory lane, then you can’t go wrong here.
    Don’t get me wrong, I love my 3D graphics card, but these games re-kindle that old visceral excitement, and instant gratification that has somehow been lost in today’s world of “everything’s-gotta-be-3D-or-else-it-sucks” gaming paradigm.
    Regards,
    Classic Fanatic

    Great Classics but watch out for the Spyware, April 10, 2006
    Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
    This review is from: Atari: The 80 Classic Games in One (Jewel Case) (CD-ROM)

    This is a great collection of the old classic atari games.
    Unfortunately, the install includes the power reg scheduler and also attempts to add a browser search engine. In my opinion, the games are not worth the problems of having spyware installed on my machine.

    Im not sure the other reviews quite sum this game up. The graphics are not terrible, there is no bundled spyware (PestPatrol does not know what they are talking about as it is and is an oversensitive spyware scanner) and is absolutely fun to play. The reason why one of the reviewers says “bad graphics” is because they did not take the time to go into the control panel for each game and select the “Enhanced Graphics” option to make them more like the original arcade classics. The game also includes desktop themes for users of Windows 98 and ME, and may or may not work on Windows 2000. They also took the time to create sort of a history mode that shows original sales material, original box art and manuals, and other promotional stuff that helped Atari sell their wares back in the old days. Even includes video interviews with the creator of Pong Nolan Bushnell. Oh… and yes… you can even use the Atari 2600 Roms from the Roms folder and use them with a third party Atari 2600 Emulator! Way Cool!

    Overall a wonderful value and a great collection of Atari Games. I highly recommend this to people who want to relive their childhood days of Atari.
