Atari HQ
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!
The Video Game Critic
Combat is an archaic, simplistic game, but after all these years it's finally getting some respect.
