    Skip out on Retro Atari Classics and Buy Atari Anthology instead.

    Although it may be great to see your some of you're favorite Atari games to hit the DS, the games have been poorly transferred. The presentation is basically severely lacking with only a total of ten classic Atari gam... Read Full Review

    You don't need to read reviews for this game unless you were born yesterday

    There's 2 things about Retro Atari Classics I have to point out - these are classic, but they're not retro. The "remix" here is essentially masking over dated graphics with what appear to be updated-dated graphics. I... Read Full Review

    Centipede and Pong are the only "Non broken" classics.

    This is by far the worst classic I've ever encountered. Within this piece of cr@p lays two delicate pieces of corn that are actually worth playing. For starters, I'd like to say a few things about my favorite games out o... Read Full Review

    A nostalgic letdown.

    What do you call a game that is a mixture of old school retro and remixed new school presentation? That’s easy. It’s called ten really old games slapped with a new coat of paint and sold at full price. Another good name ... Read Full Review

    A great pick up and play game- perfect for the 10 minute drive.

    RAC is a game that you can play virtually anytime once you get the hang of it. The game includes 10 different games- Asteroids, Breakout, Caterpillar, Missle Command, Lunar Lander, Pong, Warlords, Tempest, Gravitar, and ... Read Full Review

    ok

    This is a collection of Atari arcade games from the late 70s and early 80s set up to take advantage of the dual screen and touch stylus of the Nintendo DS. The collection includes Centipede, Gravitar, Lunar Lander, Missi... Read Full Review

    This game is a friggin turd.

    This game is the biggest rip off in the history of rip offs. This is a collection of pale imitations of classic games. The controls are utterly broken, which makes nearly all of the games no fun to play at all. This game... Read Full Review

    Good game...for people who want an introduction into the old school atari games. Control problems plague this good game.

    Since there is no review as of righting, i guess i should review it. This collection has 10 old atari games, "remixed" by 3 graffiti artists, and also includes the original games, but not perfect. The games are good, ol... Read Full Review
