Combat
(Atari)


Grade: B- (82.46)


This was the first game created for the Atari 2600, and a text-label version was included with the purchase of each new system, making this the most common 2600 game out there. Every collector has at least 5 copies of this that he can't get rid of. Despite this, it can be a pretty fun game. All of the games are 2-player and involve one person shooting the other, whether it be in tanks, jets, or biplanes. Later Atari systems were not sold with the text-label Combat cartridge, so the picture-label game could be purchased separately. Evidently a number of people actually bought it.
