SNES CLASSIC EDITION REVIEW - A super library saddled with a few inconveniences.

Reviewed by on

Booting up Donkey Kong Country on the Super NES Classic instantly threw me back to playing the platformer for the first time, and I found myself, though I knew where every hidden “KONG” letter was, having just as much fun as I did years ago. That was true of not just Donkey Kong Country in my time with the Super NES Classic but of the vast majority of the system’s 21 games from the ‘90s. There are easier and cheaper ways to play some of the greatest games of the 16-bit era, but none that feels so authentically right as Nintendo’s new adorable, nostalgic console.

Nintendo has opted for quality over quantity with the SNES Classic’s library,

Contra III: The Alien Wars
Donkey Kong Country
EarthBound
Final Fantasy III
F-ZERO
Kirby Super Star
Kirby's Dream Course
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Mega Man X
Secret of Mana
Star Fox
Star Fox 2
Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
Super Castlevania IV
Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts
Super Mario Kart
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
Super Mario World
Super Metroid
Super Punch-Out!!
Yoshi's Island

It remains an absolute joy to play the vast majority of this selection of the SNES Classic’s excellent library, whether for the first or fiftieth time But the tiny, delightfully detailed console makes it quick and easy to have an authentic ‘90s Nintendo experience with some of the greatest games of that era.

A definite buy in my book, great for just about anyone who enjoyed playing video games in the 90s.
A great idea for a birthday gift or Christmas present wink wink .

I just want to win the console

I remember playing this type of consoles way back when I was a child. I'm glad they decided to bring it back can't wait to re live my childhood memories with it.

Nostalgia

Reviewed by on

I was one of the lucky ones to get my hands on this before they were sold out AGAIN! I've been having a great time playing the various games which are included on the console. It really is my childhood wrapped up in the tiniest console I've ever owned but what fun it has been. There's so many classic games that will keep you enteretained for hours, such as Kirby's Adventure Ice Climber and Castlevania. The cable for the controller is on the short side, so I was pretty close up to the tv initially, however you can get an extended USB cable (which powers the device) so that can help with the distance issue. Other than that, its great fun and the fact that you can save your progress for each game is fantastic!

Fantastic

Reviewed by on

Other than the REALLY short cables, the machine is really enjoyable. The great games from the past are still fun to play (and challenging). The save slots are a real improvement from the 90s, now if you have a short amount of spare time you can start playing and just save when you need to be elsewhere

Childhood is back

Reviewed by on

This is the perfect little machine for bringing back all those childhood memories. Its fast and easy to use too.

Would recommend it to anyone even those who did not play these games growing up.

Great little machine

Reviewed by on

The selection of games is OK, and they look much better than they did on your old TV back in the day.

The gameplay and sound seems to be spot-on too.

The controller cord is really short, so unless you are sitting at a desk while using it, you will eventually need to get an extension for the controller cable, or a long HDMI cable + a USB cable extension. Or a wireless controller...?

USB power adapter not included, but for most people that should not be a problem as you can plug the included USB cable into your TV or Playstation or DSTV box to power it.

It's perfect

Reviewed by on

Growing up I had a really dodgy little second hand knock off brand console that me and my mum used to play Super Mario Bros. together on for hours on end.

Only got it yesterday but for a good 3 hours me and mum sat playing Super Mario Bros. again, laughing and trying to remember where all those hidden mushrooms and money blocks were!

100% a product I would recommend to anyone who loves games!

Exactly what I wanted for my kids

Reviewed by on

This product is perfect for my kids (7 and 5) and my wife and I also enjoy it, perhaps even more than them. The short HDMI and USB cables is a bit of a problem, but I opted for the HDMI and USB extension cords which works quite well, because you need to sit close to the console if you want to press the reset button to go back to the main menu.

Awesome product with major setbacks

Reviewed by on

The nostalgia is being hit hard with this product, delivering 30 of the most important games within the gaming industry, from classics Like megaman 2 and Final Fantasy through to the innovators like the original Super Mario Bros and Metroid. If you have never experienced these pinnacle moments in history then this product is a "Must buy!".

Unfortunately, like with all great things in life, this is not a perfect product. The approximate 1m length cord of the controllers is a major letdown and results in the overall crux to any form of enjoyment that could be had from the system, so unless you are willing to sit 1m away form your large LED flatscreen, then an extension for either your HDMI and mini-USB->USB or Controller is almost an necessity, which ends up adding hidden costs on top of the original purchase.

LOVE IT!

This is my childhood in a hand size, neat, grey box. The nostalgia this console brings back from the sounds, the frustration of dying to the feeling of holding the control again was awesome! I loved the variety of games! I highly recommend this product!
