Winterwind is pleased to bring you the first in a series of Retro Reviews. The first installment is two vastly differing views of Pong.

They can be found in the Gaming Industry section of the site, in the subsection: Retro Reviews.

Or, they can be found by following these handy dandy links:

Pong Good

Pong Bad

Well, I don't quite agree with CB's assessment of the game, but I don't quite get Josans either. I swear mine didn't have realistic sounds, although the rest fit pretty well... :?

Hey, I didn't think that it had realistic sounds either. Hence the quotation marks. I was just quoting what was on the promotional poster that was released with the arcade version. *shrugs*

Bah! Multi-layer in lame colours. :haksthumbsdown:
