Short Review (Summary): Great little NES emulation device and the few games you will play are great.. Screen is good and it serves its purpose.. If this was only twenty or so dollars it would be a five star device. BittBoy is lucky I am only knocking 1 star bc BittBoy is not completely truthful when it comes to describing this product. However, the product is fun, it works, and I am enjoying it so I am giving it 4 stars.. With that being said it brings me to my cons first
1.) Not all games are in English – Description says ALL Games are in English but I have found several that aren’t.
2.) Mine arrived with scratched screen.. I have seen this in several other reviews
3.) I would bet to say around 75 percent of the games are homebrew or games you would never play..
4.) Price – It’s way overpriced!! Quality Control isn’t there, my faceplate is off-center.. Scratches on the screen.. I would be happy if this was $20 but its not
1.) Rechargeable – No need to carry around batteries!
2.) 300 Games – Mine IS THE 300 game version but like my cons, over 75% will never be played
3.) Great SCREEN (Aside from the scratches)
4.) Volume is decent
5.) Buttons actually feel GREAT in hand!!
6.) Decent battery life
7.) Includes popular Marios, Chip N Dale, Contra, Excitebike and more
8.) Includes fake marios, some which I have found decently fun
9.) Overall it is fun!! I am enjoying my time playing it
10.) Good size! I know some folks complain its small but I like the size
1.) Cant save games but most NES games couldn’t be saved anyways! Just something to remember
2.) Use a Credit Card to buy and not PayPal.. As you can see from my review and other reviews, bittboy isn’t 100% honest.. At one time they were shipping units with under 200 games on them. With a credit card you can do a chargeback if they don’t honor their side of the purchase
Overall: I am hesitant to give this 4 stars but I do enjoy playing it and I am having fun with it.. Meaning to me, it is a 4 star product.. Bittboy has a great idea and a great start on something here but they need to step up their game and be a little more transparent about their device. All in all though, I know I am harsh on this device but overall it is fun and does emulate very well.
