      The nostalgia is unbeatable, there's no denying that. No one will ever be 100% pleased with the gaming selection. There's plenty of games I would have rather seen on here, but for the most part they got the right ones. Some of the "issues" other buyers have with it I do not. One of the more common complaints is physically having to get up and move to reset the system. Thats not a legitimate gripe, thats just being lazy. When you deal with nostalgia-esque products, you take the good with the bad. I don't think this product would have had the same "feel" if there was a giant Nintendo power button in the middle of the controller. The one valid complaint I do have is controller cord length. I don't think its right that an actual NES controller from 1987 has a longer cord then the its 2018 counterpart. My two star deduction comes not so much from the product directly, but more so Nintendo itself. The controller cord length and lack of a second controller are both frustrating. Simply because if you prefer playing more than 4 ft away from the system, and/or prefer to reminisce with an old friend or relative, you're going to be dumping more than $60. Even buying off-brand products, another controller and 2 cord extensions will slap your wallet another $20-$30 depending where you shop. So a $60 investment will be pushing closer to $100 for some people. Which granted I wouldn't get all the games...but I can run to my local retro game store and buy a REAL NES console and 2 controllers for under $100. My second star deduction goes to Nintendo for the SAME exact problem as my first: I bought this console on its SECOND wave of big releases. Why Nintendo addressed and fixed both above issues with their SNES but not this makes no sense to me. They held up production on this for over a year, announced an "official" discontinuation of it, then released more again earlier this year. That gave them ample time to add either a second controller, or cord extension. This system release was handled poorly at the start, but they had a chance to redeem themselves and did not.

      A Glimpse at What Made Nintendo Great

      The NES Classic Edition packs thirty games from Nintendo's 8-bit era into a tiny little box full of nostalgic feelings and simple, straightforward fun. While big names from the past like Sega and Atari have licensed their old products out to third-party companies that deliver questionable game emulation, the games in this Nintendo-made product look and sound crisp, and the hardware responds wonderfully. When you power on the system, you are greeted with an alphabetical and colorful list of thirty games from when Nintendo ruled the entertainment world. Pressing up on the controller's directional pad will allow you to access a limited number of options. Likely the most interesting option is the ability to switch between three visual filters. The CRT filter introduces faint scanlines and muddies the graphics just enough to remind older gamers what it was like to play on the old CRT televisions of the 80s and 90s. The other two filters are 4:3 and Pixel Perfect, both of which offer a clean presentation with slightly different aspect ratios. Each game boots up instantly and has four save slots. Saving is easy and intuitive, and it is quite handy to be able to be able to pick up where you left off. Switching between games is as simple as pressing the reset button on the console to go back to the main menu. The manuals for the games are not included, but there is a QR code within the menu that you can scan and bring up the manuals. There is a URL that you can access, too, if you prefer look at the manuals on a computer. The system is not without its flaws. While the game selection has many true classics such as the Super Mario trilogy and Metroid, your mileage per game will undoubtedly vary. If you are familiar with the NES library, you will wish a game or two that did not make the cut had been included. At the moment, there is no way to upgrade the game library, so for better or worse, we are stuck with this block of thirty titles. The biggest and fairest complaint about this console is the length of the controller cord. The controller is the same size, look, and configuration of the classic standard NES controller, and while it is fun to use that simple controller again, the cord is very short. This can result in the light little console being jerked around, though the console seems durable. While extension cables are available, Nintendo should have known better than to give us such a short cord. It isn't a deal breaker, but it is unfortunate. The NES Classic Edition is what casual and/or retro gamers wanted, and while it is a great product, it feels like it could have been more. A larger game library at launch and a longer controller cable would have been appreciated, but as it is, the Classic Edition is a fun product has something to offer for every gamer.

      A great little bundle of nostalgia

      Despite Nintendo's disappointingly characteristic inability or unwillingness to meet demand with sufficient supply, the NES Classic itself as a product is great. A bodacious selection of 30 old-school NES games, digitally loaded onto a nifty little simulacrum of the home gaming system we all enjoyed back in the 80's and 90's. The body of the main machine is even smaller than the packaging and most online pictures make it look. It's very simple to set up and play. It connects to a TV or monitor with a simple included HDMI cord, and is powered via a Micro USB with an included AC wall adapter. The old games are rendered well, with bright, vibrant colors and surprisingly crisp 8-bit graphics even on large modern HDTVs. While the NES Classic controller bears the classic body and buttons of the original NES controller, the plug at the end of the cord is actually the same as those on the back of Wii remotes. Therefore, any controller designed for use with the Wii, such as the Wii Classic Controller or the line of various character-themed GameCube-style controllers, should work just fine with the NES Classic. Vice-versa, the NES Classic controller can be plugged into a Wii remote for use playing Virtual Console games on the Wii or Wii U. Whether you use extra controllers with the NES Classic or not, I'd highly recommend getting an extension cable for the controller. The cable on the controller is only about 2-and-a-half feet long. That's fine if you've got the system hooked up to a small TV on a desk like me, but not very good at all for playing in a larger living room or something. Remember that since they use the same connectors, any extension cords made for Wii remote accessories will work here as well.

      Great for nostalgia. Only 30 games, though.

      I grew up during the Commodore 64 era, which was a glorious time in computer gaming history, in my opinion. One of our first consoles was the Odyssey2 and the Atari 2600. I remember playing Intellivision and Colecovision at friends' houses as well. Probably one of the most beloved consoles we ever owned was the Nintendo Entertainment System, though. With Duck Hunt, Mario Bros., Bionic Commando, Punch Out, Contra, and Tecmo Bowl, it was destined to be a classic. When the NES was released a few years ago, I missed the opportunity to purchase it. This time around, however, I picked one up and am happy with the purchase, although it is not a stellar as it probably could be... First of all, there are only 30 games on the unit. There are 3rd party knock-offs available at the same price (or less) that have hundreds of games. True, many of the greats are here, but some of my favorites (like the original Contra or Bionic Commando) are missing. The unit only comes with a single controller and the cord is an abysmal three feet (or so) long. Luckily, the NES itself is small (about the size of four controllers put together) and has a long power cord, so the short cord on the controller is not too bad (just be sure you have a long HDMI cord). As I said in the review summary, this is a great unit for the sake of nostalgia and the games that are included are some of the most popular ones to be on the NES. There are some other greats that are missing, however, and the short cord on the controller is annoying. The price is probably also a little high in comparison to other units available from third parties or competing platforms (like Atari and Sega). Thus, my four star rating. I would still recommend the purchase for anyone looking to relive old glory of games played on the NES. Just be aware that all of your favorites may not be here.

      Let's Be Kids Again

      I bought the NES Classic for my wife. We had gotten the SNES Classic before and though the games were more nostalgic for me and found that there was not really any games of interest for her. The NES Classic was a game changer. I had randomly saw on bestbuy.com that the NES Classic was in stock and I automatically put in an order. Once I brought it home we reviewed the game options and there were definitely many games that she had remembered and had played and many more that she was not familiar. We settled on playing Dr. Mario and she got hooked. My wife had never played Dr. Mario as a kid but once we started playing there was no way to take the controller out of her hand. While we played throughout the night my frail old body could not stay up past 10pm. As I laid down on the couch and watched my wife pay Dr. Mario, I ended up falling asleep, only to wake up in the middle of the night to her still playing it. Needless to say, she had played until 4am and reliving the days when you're a kid hooked on a game and just could not put it down. The NES Classic was definitely worth the purchase for us. Technically, the console was easy to hook up and easy to use. The only reason I am not giving it a 5 star is because the controllers for the NES Classic are very short requiring us to sit very close to the TV. We ended up using our SNES Classic controllers which are a little bit longer but not by very much. We plan on purchasing wireless controllers for the NES Classic.

      The Retro Pie is a much better option!

      I really wanted this console and I actually actively searched for it since launch... Well, I managed to finally get one, when the stock showed up online for one of the nations largest electronics retailers so, I bought it. The first thing I noticed, is that the console is crazy small! However, it's still twice the size of my Raspberry Pie so, it's not unrealistically small. Yes the wires are stupid short and even the Wii Classic Conttoller isn't really any longer so, you'll need to buy the extenders or a wireless controller to make this work with a larger screen (Or you can sit right up on top of the screen, good luck with that). The graphics on the console are very good considering these games were 320x240 when they were first created. Pixel perfect on my 4K TV actually is impressively clean. I was fairly impressed with this aspect of the console and think Nintendo managed to bring the experience alive very well. So, what's wrong with the System and why am I only giving it between 2 and 3 stars? Well, for starters the console has input lag that is noticeable in some situations (It is not my TV, that is among the best on the market for Input lag). Second, what I'm finding is, there's a reason I didn't play 2/3rds of these games to begin with!!! The games just didn't appeal to me and by today's standards, they haven't aged well in terms of a quality game play experience. Sure, some of the games on the console take me back to my youth... Like, Punchout, but I was let down by the lack of Mike Tyson (They could have made this happen for their fans). Also, Tecmobowl isn't 100% compatible with the emulator either as sometimes plays that you picked should breakdown and they don't... Or, you try to block a field goal and you're there ahead of the kicker, but he still gets it off. Of all the games on the console, these are the games I find worth playing... Super Mario Bros Super Mario Bros 2 Super Mario Bros 3 Metroid Final Fantasy Zelda Zelda 2 Punch out Donkey Kong Castelvania Castlevania 2 Kung Fu Mega Man titles That's not really a huge list, and the games I find curiously absent are NES Pro Wrestling Tecmo Pro Wrestling NES ICE Hockey Paperboy Contra Baseball Stars Dragon Warrior 3 Ring King Seriously, they couldn't ditch Balloon Fight (I liked it better when it was called Joust), Dr Mario, or one of the other lesser known games for those they left off? With all that said, I understand that people have hacked the platform to make it run more games and even Genesis games... However, I'm struggling to see where this little console fits, the Retro Pie simply does more and does most of it 1000% better at a similar or lesser price (if all you can find are scalpers listings).

      It's the Nintendo

      If you're looking at this then you have a good idea of what it is. So I will skip that and go straight into the things to be wary about. The cables are too short. Power, HDMI, controller, all needed to accommodate a world that has moved past wired systems. It didn't. Extension cables will be needed for the controllers. Well... Rather, controller for only one is included. Jerk move, Nintendo, especially since at the time of my purchase finding an additional controller was near impossible. Limited games. Granted, many of the games I wanted are there I'm still miffed that others aren't accessible in some way. If Nintendo has some access to their store like they do on the Switch for older games just for this system would be awesome. As it is, the games I'm not crazy about are ones I've never played which sort of makes up for the set number of games. I don't care for the interface. It's great a game can be paused and saved to come back to later but something about the menu screen seems clunky Burn in. I've not seen it yet but remember the games are designed in 4:3(?) aspect ratio leaving black bars on either side of the HDTV you'll hook it up to. If one spends the hours I did sitting in front of this console this could be a potential issue. I still have my original NES from decades ago. I have many of these games. Yet, it's the simplicity and all-inclusive style of this machine that made me decide to make the purchase. That alone could be worth the price. But having games I loved but didn't own plus some games I've never played, well, from a pure gamer's standpoint, the price is perfect.

      Classic video game collection

      Nintendo brings us a mini console with 30 games from it's Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) era. Wonderfully emulated, this collection contains many time-honored games such as Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Double Dragon 2, Mega Man 2, Pac-man, Ninja Gaiden and Metroid. Most of them are from the platforming genre, but there are few that represent other genres such as racing, adventure, or hits from the arcades of old. I have a few gripes with the choices Nintendo made for this selection however. Castlevania 2 is overly hard (Castlevania 3 would have been a better choice). Super C is not as well known as it's predecessor, Contra. And some of the games, mostly the arcade ports will feel shallow in terms of gameplay compared even to games from the next era. I definitely know of titles that did not make this collection but should have. Sadly most of them are tied to a certain license or developer and therefore were unavailable or to costly to bring to this compilation. The actual hardware has more problems. The controller, while well built, has a very short cord attached to the console, so you have to play sitting very close to the console itself. The new ability to save anywhere anytime is tempered by the problem that you have to reach out and press a button on the console itself to make it work. And it only comes with one controller, a second will be hard to find in stores or online for the regular price of $9.99. Overall, it's a good mini console for those that want to do a bit of 8-bit NES gaming, but it does have a few problems that keep it from becoming the ultimate NES experience.
