A must own for PS2
This game is ranked highly on my PS2 game list. Its one for the ages and will always keep you entertained no matter how many times you put the disc in. While it seems like a very bland concept, underneath its seemingly boring interior lies a brilliant exterior that sets the theme for this game, the 80s. While I am not familiar with the 80s(born in 94) the stories my parents had always told me fascinated me in atleast experiencing the atari. This compilation of 40 atari games is brilliantly coated with tons of extras such as the commercials that made the game as iconic as it is to this very day. With this game only being 2 dollars as it is now, the game is priceless for how much fun it can offer. Do not take my word for it! Scrounge up any loose change you can find and rush out to your local gamestop to experience the magic that is Activision Anthology.
BEST PS2 GAME! EVAR!!!
i was walking through the Game Stop store with seven dollars and after looking through three racks of games i was starting to think i should just go when i saw the game and thought it looked like a decent game. when i went home and played it i found out this game wasn't decent, it was amazing!!! this game is great for anyone and plus not only do you play great games but you can also enjoy a trip down memory lane and enjoy some classic eighties hits!
The 80’s are back.
Activision Anthology takes you time traveling to the 80’s to play an Atari 2600. There are plenty of classics in this 48 game collection. The main menu in this game is a bedroom for the 80’s that has a television, an Atari 2600, an old radio, a cork board and a game cartridge rack. The game cartridge rack is where you select the game you want to play. Now what sets this game apart from other old time anthology games is that when you view a game you can look at a blown up instruction book for the game plus if you have gotten to a certain point in that game you might get to look at the original commercial and there are many game modes such as bungee witch zooms in and out and whirl witch slowly turns the screen in a 360 Degree angle. The best games in my opinion are; Barn Storming, Crackpots, Freeway, H.E.R.O., Kaboom, Megamania, Pitfall, Plaque Attack, Sea Quest, Spider Fighter, Stampede and Pitfall 2. There are also two games that were never released. This game also has actual 80’s music including classics like the Tide is High by Blondie, Tainted love by Soft Cell and Take on Me by A-Ha. The graphics have not changed one bit. This is one the best games for people who like classic games.
