    Brings back some memories

    Well I have to say that this is the first collection that I have ever really got. They did a great job with the game for sure. The music was absolutely amazing, I felt like I was sitting infront of the wood encased TV ... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Activision Anthology

  • Rating:8.5

    I'd highly recommend Activision Anthology to any serious gamer.

    Activision was the first true 3rd party video game developer. Founded by former Atari employees in 1979, they were the first company to make 3rd party games for the Atari 2600. Atari didn't like them because unlike today... Read Full Review

    Old School Fun For Everyone

    I grew up in the days when Atari had dominated the video console era. Back then we accepted video games based on playability and fun. Although graphics were important, we didn't make a big deal out of graphics like they ... Read Full Review

    These games may feel dated, but they're still fun.

    Game compilations have been all the rage over the last few years with developers. They allow them to cash in on games that are long past their prime, haven't seen the open market in years, yet may still be commercially v... Read Full Review

    Great presentation and games makes this a must buy for low budget gamers.

    Unlike other anthology games on the PS2, Activision Anthology actually does something that most classic collections don"t; it brings a theme to it. Activision Anthology actually makes you feel like you are in the 80"s pl... Read Full Review

    If it wasn't for Pitfall this game collection would be horrid.

    This "Anthology" basically can be summed up with the phrase, "isn't one". Sure there was some sort of effort to put together a playable list of games that would gain some sort of interest to the gamer, but no...not here.... Read Full Review

    These Games Did Not Age Very Well

    I must admit that I enjoyed Activision games in my youth during the days of Atari 2600. But 25 years later having been exposed to the gamut of video games and having the opportunity to replay all the games that I grew u... Read Full Review

    Kicking it up a notch, old-school!

    The first taste that many gamers of the 32-plus-bit generation may have gotten of Activision's old-school library of games was in Activision Classics for the PlayStation. While it was a rather cool walk down memory lane ... Read Full Review
