Reception[edit]

Next Generation reviewed the PC version of the game, rating it two stars out of five, and stated that "while it sounds like a lot of fun, most of these games are a lot more inane than you remember them being. [...] The Atari Action Pack is a useful reminder that not all of the oldies are worth playing again. You've come a long way, baby."[1]

Next Generation reviewed the Macintosh version of the game, rating it one star out of five, and stated that "These games are simple, they're no-frills, and some of them are still fun... for about five minutes After that point, nostalgia had better keep you awake buddy-san because these Jurassic turds won't."[2]
