" 9/10 Stars As one of the handful of titles that defines the Atari 2600, Combat is a prime example of quality over quantity. It's loud, clunky, obnoxious at times; but Combat is excellent at what most games strive to be- engaging and fun multiplayer gameplay. With a handful of levels with mostly eye-sore color palettes, Combat sees two tanks engaging in the titular action. The primary objective is to gain the highest score. Though you can blitz the other tank - slowly and painfully, that is -"

"Release Date: 1977 (NA) Publisher: Atari Developer: Atari Genre: Shooter - Third-Person Combat is a simple game, but a blast to play when you've got friends around to compete with. Combat is a multiplayer-only game that sees players try to shoot each other with tanks, jets, and airplanes. The most "kills" at the end is the winner. That variety in vehicles to control, and the noticible difference in how each one controls helps bring longevity to a game that may otherwise get old quick. In regard"

" This one has the competitive fun of Pong, except with the goal of blowing up your opponent with tanks and jets instead of bouncing a square back and forth. It came packaged with the Atari VCS, buried within the rest of the box's contents, kind of like the chocolate center of a Tootsie Pop...Except without that stupid owl hanging around."

"Atari 2600 - 1977 "Ah, remember when consoles came with a killer app packed right in the box? For the four years we played our Atari, my family never got tired of Combat. And I don't care what anyone says--invisible tanks with bouncy bullets still kick ass.""
