User Rating: 7.5 | Intellivision Lives! PS2
Intellivision Lives!
For: Playstation 2, X-Box, Gamecube
Publisher: Crave Entertainment
Developer: Realtime Associates
Release Date: November 18th, 2003
ESRB: Everyone

Intellivision Lives! is multi-game release with over 60 classic Intellivision titles in one. What makes this game complex is the fact that games are easy to difficult, plus you have to get used to working with a completely new controller if you have owned and played an Intellivison. Such titles that Intellivision Lives! has: Astrosmash, Space Armada, and Star Strike.

The "setting" of the game is in Hal's Pizzeria, where all of the games are located in different categorized machines. These machines include space games, arcade games, gaming and strategy, sports games, combat and sorcery, children's games, and there are even unreleased titles available.

Some extra available content includes production notes, bonus commercials, the ability to view the original game box, play different game modes and even record and view your own high scores.


A disappointment in what I originally thought the game would be like. The setup, the way the controls are setup (not the fact that you have to adapt to using a new controller) - just how they changed it, and even the way the setting is made. The good thing is, you're still able to play the original games with no modifications and view some extra features. Hardcore retro fans should pick this up, but if you're new to the console and game, avoid this at all costs.
