Atari Flashback 2

 

Many moons ago, when personal computers were a pipe dream and the Internet was nary a gleam in anyone's eye, we were playing video games at the arcade, and if we were lucky, at home, too. We had consoles with names like Intellivision, Coleco Telstar,...

Affordable. A faithful, loving rendering of the original Atari 2600. Forty games and multiple levels.

Some programming bugs in games. Useless monochrome mode.

You may not have been born in the sixties, seventies, or even eighties, but a trip back in the world of console gaming is still a worthwhile diversion.

I liked the system because it provided hours of entertainment. We were playing pole position and it was still very competitive when I was playing against my wife.

It's fun playing the classics again

Should be a web service to download games

I spent a lot of my childhood playing the Atari 2600 with my buddys. Sometimes playing through 40 or 50 titles to find out who was the ultimate Atari champ. It was the reason I eventually got into computers and started my own successful computer...

I got a Flashback 2 a few months ago for an upcoming RV trip. I own an original Atari 2600 and didn't want to lug it around plus games, so I bought the Flashback 2 to quench my thirst for Atari. The great thing about it is that it's very faithful to...

Very faithful to the original, joysticks compatible with the original 2600, great for road trips

Needs more games

Consumer review by:

Atari Flashback 2

 

As an owner of the original Atari 2600 and carts, I remember buying it and expecting a home version of the Atari arcade machines. I was disappointed to find the graphics to be pale shadows of the "real" games, and, while offering facsimiles of the...

Experience the Atari 2600 again

Not so great the first time around

Perfectly emulates the Atari 2600 with "modern" electronics. My friend had a nostalgic blast using this

I didn't buy one for myself

How it is, and how it should be."

 

Not sure whether its worth the price, but it is a piece of modern era classics. And, yes in pros: is a full list of games. Make the choice yourself. Bought this for my son that has a low age requirement and doesn't know what Atari was. :)
