If you own a 2600 it is a crime not to own this awesome cartridge. The collection of games on it is wonderful and will provide hours of multi-player mayhem. And with how common the cartridge is you should have no problem getting it. Video Olympics is a no brainer because everybody enjoys Pong. This ladies and gentlemen is the reason to own a set of paddle controllers.
The variations are a mixed bag. Handball is confusing because players take turns hitting the ball. Foozpong has so many moving parts it's hard to follow the action. Soccer finds a nice middle ground and hockey isn't bad either. Video Olympics got creative with its loose interpretations of basketball and volleyball, and the results are somewhat hilarious. After playing all the four-player variations with friends I think we could agree Video Olympics is moderately entertaining. Chris grew weary of the endless Pong action, but Brent was impressed that the cartridge packs such a comprehensive set of Pong games. Not all variations are winners, but when it's at its best, this is multiplayer fun at its purest.
