Atari and Llamasoft’s collaboration on Tempest 4000 won’t convert any new followers over into the ways of Tempest. Jeff Minter’s team has perfected a game that has persisted through the ages by keeping it true to the original formula and adding in new treats for your eyes and ears. If playing Tempest on the latest gaming hardware excites you enough to open your wallets, you’ll find a new classic in Tempest 4000.
It's quite the barebones package, despite being an uproarious amount of fun in small doses. Some small control tweaks, additional content, and other changes might make this the best Tempest out of the rest, but for now it's still a great diversion and addition to the series' portfolio.
If you are not a fan of simple arcade games, which it most undoubtedly is, you probably won't find much in Tempest 4000 to win you over. But for those who have any love for the series, and appreciation for the era of the arcade, you absolutely can't go wrong with this one. I prolonged this review longer than necessary because I just wasn't done playing it – and I'm still not. It's a winner.
