Ein Drittel Gurken, ein Drittel Exoten, ein Drittel Spielspaß-Dauerbrenner: Das Revival der C-64-Kamellen ist durchaus geglückt.
Power Play
Mit dem „15 Pack“ verhält es sich ähnlich wie mit alten Fernsehserien: In unserer Nostalgie verklären wir sie und zweifeln an unserem guten Geschmack, sobald wir sie nach Jahren wieder auf dem Bildschirm erblicken. So lautet mein Rat an Euch mal wieder: Wenn Ihr zu viel Geld habt und noch einmal das alte 64er Gefühl aufleben lassen wollt, kauft's Euch in drei Gottes Namen. Es ist jedoch sehr wahrscheinlich, daß Ihr nach dem ersten Aha-Erlebnis, das „15 Pack“ nie wieder in Euer Laufwerk lassen werdet, denn wer würde schon Cindy Crawford mit Claudia Nolte betrügen?

While Activision was certainly an industry leader in developing computer and platform software, most of the games I enjoyed on the C-64 were created by other companies. Titles such as Beachhead, Raid Over Moscow, Legend of Blacksilver, and my all time favorite Space Taxi (which I still play!) would surely liven up a collection like this and would be deserving of the word classic. As it stands now, the Commodore 64 15 Pack is more geared towards computer game history buffs (yes, all three of us!). While some people may be intrigued with the idea of getting fifteen games in one package, this is definitely one case where quantity does NOT have a quality of its own.
