Atari digs deep into its vaults to bring a whopping 85 vintage gaming gems of yesteryear to PS2 on one nostalgia-tinged disc.
Quite possibly the most comprehensive collection of retro gaming treats ever seen on a single PlayStation 2 disc, Atari Anthology brings together golden oldies(1) from the arcades with classic releases for the Atari 2600. Covering off a huge array of genres and playing styles, this essential compilation contains literally dozens of pivotal titles from the dawn of the videogame era, including Pong, Asteroids and Millipede.
The full line-up of games is too exhaustive to list here, but features 18 coin-op classics (including Asteroids, Missile Command and Battlezone) and 62 home videogame greats from the Atari 2600, such as Gravitar and Super Breakout. Five bonus games - Off the Wall, Blackjack, Desert Falcon, Steeplechase and Sprintmaster - take the total number to a mind-boggling 85 retro titles.
Each game is given a new twist with the Challenge Modes - such as the colourful Trippy Mode, Time Warp and Double Speed - which are designed to push the skills of the most hardcore gamers to their limits.
