Nintendo Classic Mini SNES Review: Get one while you can

 

A brilliant little machine for nostalgic fans. Nintendo Classic Mini SNES Review: Get one while you can.

Great collection of games ; Beautifully made ; Two controllers in the box ; Rewind function great for tricky games

Cables likely still not long enough ; Game performance shaky for some

A lovingly made retro console that’s well worth the money.

Nintendo Classic Mini review: Is this micro NES all it's cracked up to be?

 

T3 dons the shoulder pads and travels back to 1983 in a quest to find out

Simple setup ; Slick UI ; CRT filter adds scanlines

Controller lead is very short ; Can't add to list of stock titles

Nintendo Classic Mini: NES review

 

Update: Hooray! This diddy NES is going back on sale in June 2018...

Packs in 30 classic games ; Costs only £50 ; Emulation is entirely faithful

Controller leads are too short ; Can’t add extra games

Despite a few foibles, the Nintendo Classic Mini is an essential Xmas purchase

Nintendo Classic Mini: NES review

 

A nostalgia-fuelled trip back to the '80s

Fabulous design ; Authentic retro-gaming experience ; Subtle modern touches

Extremely short controller cables ; No expandable games library ; No power-adaptor in box in the UK

The Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System is a console that prizes retro authenticity over modern convenience. While the overall result is that it positively oozes charm, it does mean it has a couple of inconvenient elements, such as...

Nintendo Classic Mini NES review: Sold out retro goodness

 

The Nintendo Classic Mini NES is a great collector's item in a cute retro package, if you can find one

30 classic NES games ; USB-powered

Controller leads are only 70cm long ; Can't add any more games

There are things the Nintendo Classic Mini could do better. I’d like a plug adapter, automatic restore point saves and longer controller leads. If you're looking for a bit of nostalgic comfort this Christmas, however, you could certainly do a lot worse...

Nintendo Classic Mini NES Review: In Depth

 

Nintendo Classic Mini NES review: Ageing Nintendo fans and younger gamers alike will find plenty to love in this mini NES console.

Tiny and light ; Nostalgia heaven ; Save points ; Crisp graphics

Unexpandable ; Tiny controller cables

The Nintendo Classic Mini has arrived just in time for Christmas, which means that classic NES titles will be blasting out of TVs across the country this festive season. And frankly, that fills me with more joy than a dozen red-nosed, round-bellied...

SNES Nintendo Classic Mini review: A shot of nostalgia right to the eyeballs, and now back in stock at Nintendo

 

Nintendo's retro console is worth every penny, and now it's back in stock once again

The SNES Nintendo Classic Mini is a stone-cold stunner on the retro console revival circuit that seems to be happening at the moment. Compared with the Ataribox it’s an absolute bargain (although Atari’s will play more than just classics). The tricky...

Nintendo Classic Mini NES review: a little bit of nostalgia

 

Graham takes a long, hard look at the Nintendo Classic Mini NES retro console -- a tiny gaming machine steeped in retro flair and wonder.

The Nintendo Classic Mini NES is a great piece of hardware and with over 30 games is pretty decent value. Some of the design choices aside, it’s a worthwhile purchase for the novelty. Whether it’s worth reliving your childhood or not is up to you. 8/10
