    This is not a perfect handheld gaming device but for the price you can’t beat it. These are real Nintendo games on here and it brings back a great feeling of nostalgia. Pros: Great games Turbo buttons Solid response time Nice quality d pad and buttons Cons: Poor viewing angle A little glitchy in menu screens No save states No rewind feature No ability to add additional games No rechargeable battery All in all this is a very solid handheld device. I have enjoyed it so much that I am giving a couple as Christmas gifts.

    It’s a cool concept, but when you hold it in your hand the quality feels very cheep, it also takes batteries. Which by this time I would think they would have integrated some new with old, like a rechargeable battery. It does come with a usb charger but you need to have it connected to the power source in order to play. It does not charge the unit itself.

    Great nifty hand held console! Got it for myself and wife for Tetris. There is a lot of fluff games but the games that are licensed still make it worth the money spent. Well built compared to some of the similar hand helds also sold. My favorites are Gunsmoke and 1943

    bought this and was surprised the amount of games it has. Buyer beware though. the description lists STREET FIGHTER, but it is not the Street Fighter we all know and love with Ken & Ryu. it's some other game with the same name. for the price, i can't complain.

    I enjoy using this instead of being on my cell and playing games. It is the perfect screen size and the games on it are worth the purchase, especially if you’re a Tetris player. Which is one of the reasons I purchased this.

    I personally like the Atari games better, but my grandson doesn't care and this is easy for him to hold and navigate. And four batteries are easier to replace than someone remembering to plug it in to charge it.

    I enjoyed the first couple of famous games in this collection. The other games were not that well known but some are playable. Overall for the price it I was happy but there are other option with more games.

    Bought this for my grandson's birthday, hoping it would keep him occupied on a long upcoming car trip -- worked beautifully! Tons of old-school games to keep him occupied.

    Bought this for my granddaughter since she wanted a video game. It has turned out to be one of the best things she likes, except that it is something she will 'outgrow' really fast.

    Got this for my daughter to occupy her while she is in her room since she doesn’t have access to her iphone there and she loves it so I know it’s a good value and game device

    A fun and compact device for all occasions. A great combination of classic games for all ages and at an affordable price which proves to be a worthy purchase value.

    The gift was a major disappointment. I returned the item to the store. The graphics are pathetic and the product itself reminds me of a gaming device from the early80’s.

    Bought this for my husband as a Christmas gift. It's small, portable and easy to use. Although the screen is sometimes hard to see, the fun is worth the money paid!

    Had to send mine back as the buttons were unresponsive, and one of the springs that hold the batteries in was broken. Cheap piece of junk.

    Wife was super excited to get this. It wasn’t everything she thought it was and seems like parts are a little flimsy but just my opinion

    If you don’t have gameboy, or psp and your phone doesn’t have good games, this is for you. It’s decent if you’re on the go and don’t have other portable games.

    This is a great game to play when there is no WiFi available. No violence games either. Plain old school games! Plus- affordable price!

    Total waste of money. My son was really bummed out when we put the batteries in and it did nothing. Do not waste your money!

    Love playing these classic games again. It does take some getting used to on this platform but it is great for the price and what you get.
