The Atari Times
All in all, this is a fantastic game that I am thrilled to have in my collection. Unfortunately, it's fairly rare because it came out in 1984 – a time when the 2600 was being phased out in favor of the 5200, which was released in 1982. Still, running across 2600 games for cheap isn't an uncommon experience, and this is one you should look for the next time you come across a stack of games.

The Video Game Critic
Millipede is difficult, but fun enough to keep you reaching for that reset switch. The graphics are slightly improved over Centipede, with less flicker and better-looking spiders. Unfortunately, the animation of the spiders and other creepy-crawlies is surprisingly choppy, and it adversely affects the gameplay. In a fast action game such as this, you must be able to tell what's going on at all times. Still, for frantic arcade fun, Millipede is tough to beat.

However, the game is just as addictive and just as fun as Centipede is. Nothing added to this game deters from the quality of the experience at all. That being said, there is no logical reason for anybody to own both games. Millipede is the better of the two, although not by much, so if you own Centipede, you should be fine with it. If you own neither, look for Millipede but be aware that Centipede is pretty much just as good. I am scoring Millipede lower only because it came out later when standards were higher.
