If you're like me and dismissed Dragster after trying it for a minute or two, give it another go. It's one of the most unique titles in the Atari library and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
Game Freaks 365
Even with the challenge of beating your best time, though, this game will only last so long before you become sick of it. Add to that the fact that there are other, better, racing games to be had on the Atari 2600 and there is no logical conclusion to be reached but that Dragster would be difficult to recommend for most people. For the hardcore drag racing fan who is also an Atari 2600 fan, though, this game might provide a couple hours worth of entertainment.
The Video Game Critic
This is probably the shortest video game I've every played. The controls are simple, but good timing and dexterity are required to earn a good time. Since the games are so brief, you'll hit reset over and over again, trying to beat your record. Dragster is fun, especially with two-players going head-to-head.
