    NES and SNES Mini were great retro flash back to the 16 bit era. The sega genesis from atgame could of been something great, but falls short. Pro: 1. Looks and feel of console it self is amazing, kinda cheap. but still a step above the other plug and play they made before. 2. HDMI & some decent games.+ you can use original carts if you have some. Cons: 1. wireless Controller are horrible, will lag and become unresponsive, rec using only 5-6 feets away from console. 2. Missing some key games: Street of Rage series. enuff said. 3. menu system & bonus games are junk.

    OK so it's a cheap console that has a whole load of old school games on it. Most of them are ones that we haven't really heard of and the game play is obviously nothing like the newer games. However they have done a good job, the menu selection is well done and the output via HDMI is good. Other consoles like this only have RCA output so having the HDMI is perfect.

    Since we cannot get our hands on the snes classic, I bought this for my brother to go old school. I was surprise that it was half way good. games play great, plus I was able use my old games I have in the attic. great price plus HDMI makes it worth it. down side is the UI is sluggish and some games don't work great. wish sega did one for real.

    Great to be able to play old games using an HDMI connection on a new TV. However, navigating the menu on this is a disaster. Why not just make the d-pad scroll up, down, left and right? Also hit or miss whether your own cartridges will work. I'd say about 50/50 which is a disappointment.

    Lots of fun playing games I did as a kid. Has lots of options and with the HDMI hookup, much easier to install with a modern/higher end home theater system.

    Not a lot of good games on here but, if your able to track down the actual game cartridges they will work on this system. Happy hunting.

    Not all the programs that were available are loaded in the system. Many popular games are missing.

    Not as good as I thought it would be. I hope Sega makes improvements on the next mini console they make.

    You can get a old school Genesis on eBay for cheaper.
