IntelliVision 2 review. Classic Game Room reviews the Mattel Electronics INTELLIVISION II video game system released in 1983! The original Intellivision was released in 1980 and featured an awesome wood grained strip (fake of course) as well as connected controllers and a large library of video games. The Intellivision II is smaller, lighter and sporting an external power supply and a serious lack of wood grain, yet it actually works. CGR Intellivision 2 video review features the Intellivision II videogame console in white/beige plastic with controllers and numerous games like Lock 'N' Chase, Astrosmash, Burgertime and Demon Attack.
