Whilst this collection has a lot to offer, those unfamiliar with Atari probably won't want to spend that much time with these bonafide classics.

There are not a lot of flashy extras outside of leader boards and multiplayer, but having over 100 classic games in one (two?) simple package is more than worth the price of admission. Even if players only boot up half the games for mere seconds, it is worth it to experience this history of the console that started the craze. I only wish Nintendo would do something similar with their games, imagine a library of 100 Nintendo games in one convenient place…

Atari Flashback Classics Volume 1 features a lot of old games that are terrible by today's standards, and a few that are still surprisingly fun. That isn't really the point, though, as it's more about getting to celebrate gaming's past.

Unlike Nintendo's Mini NES retro console that was released last year, this is a more difficult package to recommend to people that didn't grow up playing the games.
