I'm VERY glad I took a chance on this one!!!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NES Retro Entertainment System(Black/Red) (Video Game)I did a lot of research when shopping for an NES clone, and this is what I finally settled on. I saw some reviews on here talking about cleanliness of the games themselves, which was a non-issue for me because my NES cartridges were always well cared for and have always been stored in sleeves. I decided to take a chance on this little system, and I've certainly been happy with the result! In addition to looking right-at-home next to my PS2 and Wii, the RES has flawlessly played every game I've plugged into it, and hasn't shown any signs of trouble so far! Perhaps just as important as the excellent performance, is that IF the kids do accidentally break this console, it's cheap enough to replace without breaking your pockets. After having such a blast over the past month, using this little clone to play old faves like Jaws, Godzilla, Simon's Quest, and Super Mario Bros, I definitely give it a 5-star rating in the FUN category. I give it 4 stars overall, though, due to one very tiny drawback. That drawback is the fact that this system is somewhat lightly built, composed of very thin plastic rather than the bullet-proof stuff Nintendo used on the original NES. Consequently, you do need to be careful and gentle when inserting and removing cartridges, but as long as you do that it'll be fine. Ultimately, if you're looking for the best ratio of quality to price (best value), then I believe this is the jackpot!
