Product description Nice clean disc with all cover art and manual. case is clean with no cracks. Plays great Amazon.com Arcade's Greatest Hits: The Atari Collection 1 features six legendary titles from the late 1970s and early 1980s, including Asteroids, Battlezone, Centipede, Super Breakout, Missile Command, and Tempest. Unlike many retro-flavored video game compilations, this disc is heavy on hits rather than second-rate obscure titles. In addition to the classic games, Arcade's Greatest Hits: The Atari Collection 1 also includes a documentary featuring interviews with the original programmers. (Those not so fanatical about the Golden Age of Atari will appreciate the fact that the presentation is broken down into chapters that are easily navigated.) Arcade Greatest Hits: The Atari Collection 1 almost succeeds in replicating the original arcade action--including the infamous "bugs" of the original games. However, despite these efforts, you never fully get that "just like the arcade" feeling due to the fact that the arcade controls don't translate well to the standard PlayStation controller. With the exception of Asteroids, too often you find yourself wishing for the trackball, paddle, or dual-joystick controls that these games were designed to be played with. Despite this flaw, the nostalgia value alone makes this disc a worthwhile addition to any veteran gamer's collection. --Joe Hon Pros: Excellent lineup of legendary Atari games Includes documentary with interviews and narrated slide shows Cons: Arcade controls don't translate well to the PlayStation controller Limited appeal beyond retro-video game fans See all Product description
