Great reviews, great posts! I think "Asteroids" is one of several 2600 ports that, in my opinion, improves on the arcade original in some ways. The other 2600 port that I think is superior to the arcade game in a lot of ways is "Berserk" (minus the voice samples, unfortunately). Missile Command on the 2600 holds its own, too!

As the owner of an actual Asteroids arcade machine, I gotta disagree that the 2600 port is better than the original. It's a great game, no question, especially on the harder difficulty settings as noted. But even then it doesn't have the level of insanity you get on the arcade game, especially that little UFO who is just the epitome of evil.

Both games are great, but gotta give the nod to the arcade. :)

Was playing Super Asteroids on my Evercade earlier, and laughed upon seeing a UFO smack into a rock and explode...
