4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but no save feature April 24, 2011
By Jack
The Firecore Arcade Ultimate (aka the Gopher) is a fantastic system.
Why? Well, first let's look at the built in games. There are 20 of them
-Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
-Alien Storm
-Altered Beast
-Arrow Flash
-Gain Ground
-Columns III
-Crackdown
-Shinobi III
-Decap Attack
-Mean Bean Machine
-Ecco
-Ecco Jr
-ESWAT
-Kid Chameleon
-Golden Axe
-Jewel Master
-Shadow Dancer
-Sonic & Knuckles
-Sonic Spinball
-Flicky
Now, you might think, "What? Those aren't really any good!"
You're right. They aren't. However, the system has an SD slot at the top.
If you have an SD card (goes in cameras) and an SD reader, you can put in
about 1000 games. Very few games are unplayable. The ones that aren't playable
are Contra Hardcorps and Virtua Racing and Vectorman II. Some others may not work,
but I can personally assure you, all Sonic, Mortal Kombat, and Streets of Rage games work.
Also, the button layout is a bit strange, and very different from the original controller. There is no
save function, so getting Phantasy Star is useless.
One of the best features is an A/V jack, so you can hook it up to your TV. Also, you can use
iPod earbuds to listen to the Genesis music through headphones for FANTASTIC sound quality. Also, the
D-pad is amazing, rivaling the original. Well, that's my review. Thanks for reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for a gift, but ultimately lacking June 3, 2011
Well, I bought this for a friend of mine and he absolutely loves it. So it's a great gift and a good introduction to the world of Sega which quite simply did what nintendidn't.

First of all, lets get this out of the way: YES YOU CAN ADD GAMES VIA THE BUILT-IN SD SLOT. It just needs a bit of a trick to get it to work. First of all, you need a compatible SD card. A normal cheap 2GB one works great and holds a lot of games. Don't try cards with more that 2GB capacity, there seems to be a problem with those. Then you need to convert the games to ".BIN" using a tool like genecyst or GenRomSuite as Firecore does not support the SMD format. And then you need to put all your files in a folder called "GAME" inside the SD card. That's all there is to it.

Compatibility so far is very good. Most of the games work with no speed problems. Some games do glitch in certain places but very few games are completely unplayable.The controls are nice and comfortable, and the battery life is impressive.

So why the three stars?

Well, the sound is a LOT way off-key. It's like the original soundtracks were given to a guy who can only play a certain part of the synthesizer and decides to play the song the way he sees fit.. A newbie won't see what's wrong, but a longtime Sega fan that wants to relive some memories will be sorely dissapointed, especially if he decides to play games like Streets of Rage or Sonic where music is a strong selling point.

Also, no way to play a co-op. There is no joypad slot when you hook it up to the TV and there is no way to connect two of these together. Which makes Columns and Golden Axe a lot less enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally got it right! July 25, 2011
By L. Ruiz
Verified Purchase
It seems that for about the last decade or so, Sega has been secretly trying to resurrect it's business through rekindling interest in the retro console, the Sega Genesis (Mega Drive, if you live abroad). Their latest endeavor has led them to team up with Firecore software through AtGames and release a string of handhelds, most of which are pretty obscure, but no less impressive. The Retrogen was a great system capable of playing cartridges with full resolution, yet had it's drawbacks such as wrong color and sound and the fact that it nad no D-pad, but rather a cork-lite disc used in it's place which wasn't bad, but could have been better. Then there was the GenMobile which, while a step up from the Retrogen in terms of it's control and built-in content, was a drastic step down in build quality and resolution. In fact, mine broke on the very first day I got it while my Retrogen works like a dream. Fortunately I got my money back for that GenMobile.

And now what? Well there was a motion-control thing that I heard of and saw in a local Walgreens which surprised me because of how obscure the brand seemed (Come on now, it's Firecore, dude.) and then there was a three-button predecessor to the Gopher. Now, there's the Gopher.

I must say right off the bat, the first thing that impressed me was the weight of the system. You can tell by holding it that it's well-built, and has perfect screen resolution. I'm not sure if the colors are dead-on, but most of the games I played look good, so I'm not gonna do a side-by-side comparison because I'm too lazy. The sound varies. Some games, like Mortal Kombat 2, work fine but games like Streets of Rage 1 through 3 have distortion or off-key notes.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent value May 10, 2011
Verified Purchase
Bought this for my 3-year old who is a Sonic fan and he loves it. The included games are good, the quality of the unit is fine and the implementation is done as well as can be expected. The emulation does deliver lower sound quality, but it's a fair trade-off for smooth performance and good battery life.
