Classic Game Room was the FIRST classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999. Returning in 2008 with new episodes, Classic Game Room breaks out a review of the PLAYSTATION 2 PS2 VS. ATARI 2600 video computer system VCS. CGRHD takes a close look at the new PS2 Slim model compared to the smaller Atari 2600 Jr. The 2600 Junior (as it was known) was released in 1986 to a public hot for the NES, sadly it never received the recognition that it deserved. So which is better? In this versus console battle to the death these two juggernauts from different video gaming eras compete for the world championship of great video game consoles... right. What is incredible is that in the history of video games, the Atari 2600 was a landmark system that debuted in 1977. The PS2 was released to North America in October of 2000. Both were expensive when they came out, were huge and bulky and had only a few games available. But over time they developed a huge fan following that enjoyed their gameplay and graphics, and had literally thousands of games released for each system. Both the 2600 and Playstation 2 had smaller, more compact models released and both are more affordable today for collectors. Sadly there is no wood grained heavy sixer PS2.

Classic Game Room was the FIRST classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999. Returning in 2008 with new episodes, Classic Game Room breaks out a review of VIDEO OLYPICS for the Atari 2600 Video Computer System. Produced just in time for the 2008 Olympic games in Beijing China, Video Olympics has the spirits of the Olypia of years past all wrapped up into one convenient Atari cartridge. Lurking deep within Video Olypics is basically 10 different versions of PONG. Sure they may use fancy names like Quadrapong and Ice Hockey, Soccery and Volleyball... but it's basically pong. You watched the footage of the different events in the massive Chinese stadium like swimming, gymnastics and track and field... but does that really get you into the action like Video Olympics does? Who won the gold medal in rings... who won the silver in high jumping... what country won the bronze in the 50 meter dash...? I don't know. But I do know that when you play pong you're a winner. Watch the news for up to the minute.. nay, up to the second covereage of the 2K8 olympics in China, but watch your Atari 2600 for up to the second covereage of what's going on in your Atari 2600 Video Olympics! Who knew the Ancient Greeks were on to this? Classic Game Room was the original classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999-2000, now on DVD.

Classic Game Room reviews 3-D TAC TAC TOE for Atari 2600 VCS Video Computer System! Remember Connect Four and regular Tic Tac Toe on a piece of paper with crayons? Well bump that old fashioned way of playing games all the way up to futuristic 1979 levels with this Atari 2600 classic! This old school retro review from Classic Game Room is exciting and makes this garage sale cartridge come alive with science fiction movie references and monotone delivery fit for Classic Game Room fans. If it's retro reviewer reviewing reviews you're looking for, Classic Game Room Atari 2600 reviews are the place to go for Atari 2600 gameplay, footage, objective review style and history. Classic Game Room loves the Atari 2600 and speaks to it every day. "Hello Atari, you're special." It is unclear if there will be a remake of this game in 1080P high definition for the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 PS3 video game console. Perhaps when the Wii 2 comes out on release day they will include 4D Tic Tac Toe where you must also challenge the computer through space wormholes that shift time.
Classic Game Room reviews AIR SEA BATTLE for the Atari 2600 VCS video computer system! This 2-player game is like Combat in some respects, except that instead of driving tanks you're blowing up battleships and bombers! Even though there is a rinky-dink 1-player mode in Air-Sea Battle, this game stands out because of its two player head to head action. There are 27 different game variations in Air Sea Battle and this review shows gameplay and footage of many of them. Air-Sea Battle was released in 1977 for the Atari and uses the joystick controller, although there is a label variation from 1986 which says "use with paddle controllers" and is incorrect, because the game uses joystick controllers for Atari 2600. Shoot airplanes with guided missiles, bomb ships, shoot targets and fire naval defense cannons at frigates and destroyers... it's all in a day's work with Air-Sea Battle for the Atari 2600! Classic Game Room is the ultimate retro reviewer reviewing Atari 2600 games. Target Fun with a Sears label is the same game as Air Sea Battle.
40'z and love in the hizzouse! Classic Game Room HD reviews REALSPORTS TENNIS for Atari 2600 VCS video computer system. Break it off some bitches, it's tennis! The Real Sports series of sport related cartridges on the Atari 2600 were a more "advanced" series of sports titles that brought video gamers in the early 80's closer to their favotire atheletic events than ever before. While they can be picked at today for being crude, games like RealSports Tennis show how far Atari games had advanced from 1977 to 1983. RealSports Tennis is not a bad game by any stretch, it's actually quite impressive and offers some exciting tennis gameplay. You can play one or two player games, play the CPU, name your character and set the game speed to fast or slow. Realistic tennis scoring and graphics that looked like people (instead of Pong blocks) greet those players willing to take a shot at RealSports Tennis. This silver label cartridge for the Atari 2600 is an easy and affordable find today, as are the other RealSports games like Soccer, Football and Baseball. So check it out, have you played yourself out with Virtua Tennis on the Sega Dreamcast? Then sock it to the Atari 2600 and go for blood with RealSports Tennis on the Atari 2600. Classic Game Room HD reviews Atari 2600 games because CGRHD is an Atari 2600 reviewer reviewing Atari games. This RealSports Tennis review has gameplay footage from this classic old school 1980's arcade style sports game cartridge.
Classic Game Room HD reviews DEFENDER for Atari 2600 VCS video computer system. This 1980 arcade smash hit came with some surprising changes to the Atari 2600 including a row of buildings instead of mountains and only one button, but it still has a unique charm and remains highly enjoyable to play today. Defender, which is one of the best arcade video games ever created, is similar in style to a horizontally scrolling space ship shoot-em'-up, or SHMUP. It does not have power ups or mega super hyper weapons or insane bullet hell madness or end bosses, but it does have fun and addictive gameplay. Even on the Atari 2600, which butchered some arcade ports, Defender holds up to hours of gameplay with exciting action and explosions, smart bombs, landers, swarmers and mutants. It is still one of the best titles on the Atari 2600 and this review shows Defender gameplay in all its glory. Classic Game Room reviews the best new and classic video games and hardware from all video games consoles. Old school fans of retro video games will find many CGRHD reviews to enjoy.
Classic Game Room was the FIRST classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999. Returning in 2008 with new episodes, Classic Game Room breaks out a review of DIG DUG for the Atari 2600 VCS Video Computer System. Dig Dug is by Namco, the same people who brought you the amazing Pac Man and Xevious as well as the piece of trash called Ridge Racer 7. In fact they disgraced the awesome game Dig Dug by naming some stuff in RR7 after it.... bad. Dig Dug was released in 1982 in the arcades and was a very successful game and remains popular today. Dig Dug was ported onto the Atari 2600 in 1983. Dig Dug was also released for the Atari 7800 and even has a sequel called Dig Dug 2 (Electric Duggaloo) on the Nintendo Entertainment System NES. Your job as Dig Dug is to Dig and destroy enemy monsters who are trying to destroy you. Pump them full of air, watch them explode and then pour a 40 over their carcasses. Dig Dug is awesome retro old scool classic video gaming to the max. You can try, but you can't get much more awesome retro old school video gaming than Dig Dug. Pick up this affordable and fun Atari 2600 cartridge today and Dig it like you Dugging mean it.

Classic Game Room was the FIRST classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999. Returning in 2008 with new episodes, Classic Game Room breaks out a review of RIVER RAID for the Atari 2600 VCS Video Computer System by Activision. This vertical scrolling shoot em up, or SHMUP, is a great example of the 2D action fighter plane genre like 1942 or 1943. We love Shmups here at Classic Game Room, and this classic old school retro arcade video game is one of the best. Pilot your jet up the river and destroy bad guys with your arsenal of missiles. If you like Ikaruga, Radiant Silvergun and Raiden III you will love River Raid. This game should be remade for the PS3, Wii or Xbox 360 Live XBLA sometime soon because it is so much fun and a great shooter with great controls and action. It's a maniac shooter, it's RIVER RAID! Be sure to watch the original Classic Game Room episodes. Classic Game Room was the original classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999-2000, now on DVD.

Classic Game Room was the FIRST classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999. Returning in 2008 with new episodes, Classic Game Room breaks out a review of ROBOT TANK for the Atari 2600 VCS video computer system. What's not to like about Robot Tank, it's a tank and a robot... in one! Like a spork in tank form. Robot Tank was released in 1983 and is very similar to another first person shooter style game on the Atari 2600, BATTLEZONE. CGRHD reviewed Battlezone a while back and has always enjoyed both games. There are some major differences between Robot Tank and Battlezone that you can spot easily when playing the games, and the gameplay footage should point this out as well. In Robot Tank your tank can take damage; in Battlezone there are other kinds of enemies and it feels more like a real 3D environment. Robot Tank is from Activision and features a 24 hour a day clock and changing variable weather. Enjoy watching the sun set while relaxing in your Robot Tank on the battlefield. Robot Tank is an excellent military combat game and one that you will enjoy if you dig Atari games and FPS style first person shooters like Halo, Bioshock and Resistance Fall of Man.

IT'S HOCKEY NIGHT at Classic Game Room! CGRHD reviews ICE HOCKEY for Atari 2600 VCS video computer system. You can play as player vs. Atari 2600 or player vs. human being scumbag opponent. This 1981 classic from Activision shows a game ahead of its time with excellent gameplay, even if it doesn't really resemble a hockey game today. Check opponents, score goals and play with a two player team in a 3 minute game. Hockey games today have licenses from the NHL and play on the PS3 and Xbox 360 game consoles; this classic on the Atari has imaginary teams that you can name and call your own. CGR believes that our blue and red team is the 1991 Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins with Mario Lemieux and Paul Coffey! Booya, take that green and yellow team! Ice Hockey is a true classic on the Atari 2600 and this Activision cartridge can be found easily and affordably today. Check it out and pound your bacon loving neighbors to the north (assuming you're American) into the ice without mercy. Or check your reality TV loving, SUV driving neighbors to the south into the boards (if you are Canadian). This is a game for all! Hooray for insulting other peoples' homelands! Classic Game Room is the ultimate retro reviewer and video game review show for old school games and arcade classics like Ice Hockey for Atari 2600!
Classic Game Room reviews Donkey Kong Junior for Atari 2600 VCS! Is this the worst version of Donkey Kong JR. ever or is it the best? Donkey Kong Jr. was released in the arcades by Nintendo in 1982 and found its way onto numerous video game consoles in the following years. DK Jr. is on the Atari 2600, Atari 7800, ColecoVision and Nintendo Entertainment System just to name a few. This Donkey Kong Jr. review features gameplay footage from Donkey Kong Junior showing this Nintendo old school arcade game video game masterpiece being played. Witness three rounds of Donkey Kong Jr. as found on this Coleco produced Atari 2600 game cartridge! Witness Donkey Kong's son fighting Mario to save his father in this rare game where Nintendo's hero, Mario, is a bad guy! Classic Game Room reviews Atari 2600 games because we are a Atari 2600 VCS video computer system reviewer reviewing Atari games!
Classic Game Room was the FIRST classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999. Returning in 2008 with new episodes, Classic Game Room breaks out a review of REACTOR for the Atari 2600 video computer system. Reactor is not a famous, well known or coveted game today. This is a shame because beneath its drab exterior lays an exciting game that is as addictive as the most engaging Atari games out there. Reactor is an old school somewhat arcade style action strategy puzzle game where you fly as a space ship (like the one in Inner-Space) inside a nuclear reactor to fight off enemy particles who are trying to destroy you. Smash the particle bad guys into control rods and shrink the nuclear core, rack up points and have a great time. Reactor is not a graphics powerhouse or memorable 80's bastion of cartoon happyness, but it is darned fun and worthy of adding to your Atari 2600 VCS collection of games. I doubt we'll be seeing a remake of Reactor any time soon for the next gen consoles, but if we do I hope they bring out a cartoon Nuclear Reactor called "Reacty the Reactor!" Classic Game Room was the original classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999-2000, now on DVD. The reviews on the HD series are reviewing PS3, PS2, Genesis, NES, Atari and Xbox 360.

Classic Game Room was the FIRST classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999. Returning in 2008 with new episodes, Classic Game Room breaks out a review of SLOT RACERS for the Atari 2600 video computer system VCS from 1978. This game was around when Star Wars was just an infant. This game was made when Dinosaurs still roamed the earth and our grandparents rode horses to the market to pick up snake oil for the Model T during the War of 1812. Slot Racers is a game in a long line of great two-player games on the Atari like Combat, Air Sea Battle, Space War and Warlords. This is old-school, retro, vintage, arcade gaming at its finest. Be sure to watch the original Classic Game Room episodes. Classic Game Room was the original classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999-2000, now on DVD. Wii, PS3, Xbox 360.
