When you consider that Combat was originally available for the Atari VCS in 1977, you'll begin to realize what a perfect pack-in game it was for the system. It offered a wide array of game selections and was simple and engaging. And it's held up very well even to this day. If anyone's looking for an opponent to play Combat with, I'm game!
Overall, it’s quite the nostalgic trip to hear all of the beeps and boops that the Atari was home to, but the nostalgia alone isn’t going to carry a game. Combat does have a few solid options to play, and they are fun and engaging while you take on a friend. However, unless you are easily entertained, you won’t find this as a title with high replay value. Combat is certainly good in portions, and could even be a solid title to add to an Atari-themed gameplay session, but will not be the gem of your collection. Fortunately, these cartridges are super easy to find, and are very cheap. If you like a simple game to destroy an opponent at, this would be worth your time, but if you’re looking for something more revolutionary, this would not be something that highlights stellar gameplay. Combat falls into Atari’s ever expanding, moderately entertaining category.
