I have the Spongebob 5-1 games and I used to have the Activision one. I think my Atari's one is in my dad's truck, if it's still there.

Nope never played them, they do look okay though, kind of a cool retro feel. And who wouldn't want to use an Atari styled controller to play Space Invaders on your HD TV.

I thought about getting the old console ones like Atari and the such. Just was not sure how good they were.

I have a few -- the Atari Flashback 2 (essentially a console-ized plug-N-play), the Atari 2600 Paddle games plug-N-play, the Activision A2600 plug-N-play joystick and the Pac-Man arcade plug-N-play (includes Pac, Galaxian, Dig Dug, RallyX and Bosconian).

They vary in quality from my experiences. The Atari ones are excellent, especially the Flashback2 (which i believe replicates the actual hardware performance instead of emulating it), but the paddle is also solid. The Pac and Activision ones are good too, but the video quality varies (the cables are clearly very cheap, unshielded wiring). A friend got the first Genesis/MegaDrive plug-N-play that came out and he said that it was solid as well.

Overall though, i think they're a good value, especially if it features a game or two that you love -- a particularly love having an easy plug-N-play of arcade Pac-Man for when i'm too lazy to fire up the 360 (or just want to play it with an actual joystick as it should be).

Turbo_Genesis_64

If you guys have an Atari Flashback 2.0 there ar 2 hidden paddle games on it!

Spell out "1972" on the first menu screen by UP once, DOWN nine times, UP seven times, and DOWN two times. However, you will need paddles to play Warlords and Super Breakout though.

EXPERIENCE MORE.... Arcade-quality graphics, awesome sound, "turbo-charged" game play, exciting TurboChip games... It's the incredible Turbo Genesis 64 Entertainment SuperSystem Experience. There's more fun, more challenge, and more excitment ready for you today!

Oh, I have played them over at one of my Italian cousin's houses many times when I was little.
I played greats like Nuts & Milk, Binary Land, Mappy, Ninja Kun, Formation Z, Zippy Race, and so much more... [Sigh] Memories! I don't own one, but I still recall my countless nights over at my cousin's house playing for hours on the PowerJoy. I even played the NES hack version of Disney's Aladdin, not knowing until three years later in Hurricane Rita that it was based off the Super NES game.
To be quite honest, I never knew most of these games were from actual NES and FamiCom classics, or slightly less. Not until the internet several years later.
PowerJoy ftw!!!!!
It was also a good way of importing Dig Dug and Mappy without doing the importing. Know what I'm sayin'?

Oh yeah, i picked up one of those Power Joy things a number of years back (right before Ninty went after them the first time, though i still see plenty of them available despite the injunction). Fun, but gimped versions of some great NES games (i remember 1942, Duck Hunt and Super Mario getting most of the love). Overall though, it wasn't too great; the versions of games were clearly emulated hacks (timing, music and colors sometimes off, etc) and the "system" itself (contained within a controller designed to look like an N64 controller, but whose analog stick was firmly glued in place and did nothing) was made very cheaply, A/V cables were horrible (replaced them with good ones and had no real A/V problems).

I ended up tearing the thing apart to just get at the NoaC ("Nintendo-on-a-chip") which i'll perhaps one day use to get my BenHeck on and make a homemade portable NES.

SonicMaster

I have a spongebob one, and my brother got a tetris one with a block for a controller and a genesis thing with 6 games. On sonic 2, it starts out on the 2nd level!

Yeah, I do recall the timing being way off on the PowerJoy. It's especially true when play the true versions of Clu Clu Land and Track & Field on your TV screen at home. Go figure.
