Berzerk is a great arcade port. Probably my favorite, kinda hard as there are several games I like just as much.

Realsports Baseball, Countermeasure, Berzerk, Bounty Bob, Qix, Castle Crisis, MULE, Rescue On Frac, etc. There are so many great games.

It is awesome. It needs an update though, to use the newer interrupt driven digi-speech technique that Sheddy used in Space Harrier. This way, the action won't completely freeze when there is speech.

Stupid question: as the 5200 is compatible with the 8 bit computer line (but I'm assuming the carts aren't), will these games run as ROMs on an Atarimax multicart? I've been hankerin' some 8 bit Atari action for no apparent reason!

It isn't compatible. Same hardware, different internal memory locations and different joystick-reading chips & logic. However, most 5200 ROM's exist as A8 ROMs too, and many A8 ROMs have been converted over to 5200 format as well - such as Donkey Kong and DKjr.
