Product Description

80s kids were sure that video games couldnt get better than the NES. Then the 90s happened and the Super Nintendo hit the scene. With 8 more bits, 4 more buttons and no more cartridges blowing, the Super Nintendo set the standard for 16-bit gaming. For 10 years, the SNES was king. Even as 32-bit systems tried to steal the show, the Super Nintendo proved that gaming genius was about more than technology: it's just about fun. Remind yourself how much fun the SNES is. This refurbished SNES console is guaranteed to work upon arrival or weâ€TMll send you another one. It comes bundled with 1 controller and hookups. .

5.0 out of 5 stars Bar none, its one of the best systems ever made July 2, 2002
After Sega unleashed the 16-bit Genesis, Nintendo was at a crossroads because their classic 8-bit Nintendo system was dying out. So Nintendo makes their own 16-bit system, but used a much better graphics and sound chip than the Genesis had, and remained the top system until Sony's Playstation came out in 1996. What made the Super NES kick so much was its outstanding library of games. The first party titles were out of this world, not to mention the system also had some of the best RPG's to date on any system. All in all, if you can find a Super NES anywhere, I highly recommend buying one, its a piece of video game history, and Nintendo has not been able to make a better system yet. Below is a list of games that are also recommended to get along with the system for the best playing experience:
Super Metroid
Super Mario World
Yoshi's Island
Super Mario Kart
Final Fantasy 3
Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Contra 3
Super Mario All-Stars
Street Fighter 2 Turbo
Tetris Attack
Donkey Kong Country
Super Mario RPG

5.0 out of 5 stars Ah, the SNES... October 20, 2002
A Kid's Review
If you don't like this system, there are two possibilities:
A. You are insane
B. You [didnt find the good] games
To prevent B, I shall list some games that I reccomend:
Super Mario World (It's really a mark in this system's legacy.)
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Super Mario All-Stars (Or, scratch World and All-Stars, and get the version that has World + All-Stars on one cartridge)
Super Mario RPG (WONDERFUL RPG for beginners. Highly reccomended.)
Megaman X (Probably the best Megaman game ever.)
Chrono Trigger (A must for RPG fans.)
F-Zero (You know you like racing down a highway at 800 MPH..)
Donkey Kong Country 1-3 (Rare's masterpieces, how could you not love 'em?)
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (The only Zelda on SNES. Enjoy.)
Secret of Mana (A Gauntlet Legends-like RPG. Gotta love it.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Nintendo at the height of gaming... March 12, 2003
The Super NES is the best video game system by Nintendo, bar none. While it had a slower processor than the Sega Genesis (in which case future games had "FX chips" to enhance the games), it had better graphics and sound quality. Why is this system among the best? Obviously, the games are what count. No matter how advanced Nintendo gets, the Super NES has the most of the best video games ever made by anyone.
Here's a list of some of the classics: Super Castlevania IV, Contra III, the Super Mario series, Super Turrican (a rare and often overlooked gem), Super Metroid, Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy III, Tales of Phantasia, the Mega Man X series, U.N. Squadron, Zelda: A Link to the Past, Breath of Fire I and II, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Starfox, Super Mario Kart, the Donkey Kong Country series, Super Mario RPG, Street Fighter II (probably the best one to get is Turbo, but Super Street Fighter II is also worthy) series, Ninja Gaiden Trilogy (which is basically Ninja Gaidens 1-3 from the NES system), Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time, and Rockman and Forte (a.k.a. Megaman and Bass). There are plenty more that are also worthy classics, but I thought I'd mention these above to get you started (although Tales of Phantasia and Rockman and Forte would be hard to get, considering they're only available in Japan for the Super NES). So don't vote NO because I forgot one game.
Is this the best system? Maybe that's not true, but those times were the best; the rivalry between Nintendo's Super NES and the Sega Genesis was considerable. Both had extremely enthralling games that were of great quality (Nintendo had Mega Man and Mario, Sega had Sonic and Vectorman). So depending on your preference, you might want one or the other. As far as I'm concerned, both are a must-have. The days of Genesis vs. Super NES are the best in video gaming history. I say this as a true gamer; those were the good ol' days.

1.0 out of 5 stars Quite a few reasons why this is a terrible experience. January 17, 2014
Verified Purchase
I purchased this from the seller called "Toothchipper2000." It arrived completely defective. Does not power on, even after trying it in 2 different outlets. No red indicator light on the console, no picture on the screen. Next, when contacting the seller, toothchipper 2000 has decided not to reply back, forcing me to contact amazon directly. Finally, when packing everything back up in the same box it came in to ready it for a return, when I removed the shipping label addressed to me, there was a return shipping label under it addressed to the seller from a different customer who'd returned this particular item. Yes, this seller received his defective item back at least once before, and then shipped it right back out to the next person. Be very very careful. This is not a positive experience thus far. Still working on getting a refund for this purchase. More to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST GAME SYSTEM EVER! January 8, 2006
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This may be an oldie, but it's a goodie! You may like good graphics and that crappy M rated stuff you call Halo, but you will enjoy this to! I got mine on Saturday from a book store along with Super Mario World, Super Metroid, and a Super Gameboy. I fell in love with it! I think I play it more than my N64! I went to Gamecrazy and got another controller for eight bucks! I'm planning on getting Starfox for it, and definetly Megaman X! Once more, Nintendo has created another great game system! The only thing game-wise that is better would probably be a NES original. Overall:


Great games

Awesome contoller

Super Mario and F-Zero


32-bit graphics

Old system

It's great if you like old school!
