The bad ass thing about having siblings is that this game becomes actually playable.

However, the best version of Combat is 100% the plane dogfights. Those two puffy clouds hanging out in the middle of the screen while you cruise around in a shapeshifting biplane or jet trying to blow your little brother's plane from existence the most times... family bliss, am I right?

For a game that came with the console and is as old as I am, it is pretty decent in a number of ways. The tank and plane sounds are pretty solid, the explosions are fine, and the shooting noise is... the same for every vehicle, but at least isn't a laser. The rotating tanks and planes are a little wonky, but the terrain is good and the colors are... classic Atari.

Cheap and fun, it's worth a SHOT. hahahahahahahahaha.
