Great Retro System!
on February 27, 2017
I started video-gaming back in the 80's, and then through the present. Back in the day when the Neo-Geo came out, it was WAY out of my price range, but it was certainly very desirable: literally arcade-quality (since the very machines were used in arcades). Now all these years later, this retro game system also distinguishes itself from similar systems (I also have an NES classic and the At-games Sega Genesis system). The quality of the NeoGeoX handheld is really nice, surprisingly high quality for the (sticker) price. The joystick is pretty cheap, very plasticey, and kind of a debacle relative to the higher quality sticks. But that said it is perfectly usable.
It comes with a pretty nice collection of games. As is true of the Neo Geo games library as a whole, the selection is pretty "fighter game" heavy, but there are some nice shooters and other games in there too. Also the ability to buy a card that includes another 15 great games (the "Mega Pack", a must buy) certainly makes the Neo Geo retro system game library much better than the competitors.
It plays great on my modern tv (through hdmi). The picture and sound are respectable (considering when the games were made). I'm really happy with the system, but sad that they discontinued it. There are still a lot of great games that we'll never see on this system (without getting hacks). Get it while you still can! My guess is that these systems will be very expensive in a few years.
