Critic Reviews for NES Remix

Despite the range of games on offer (everything from motocross to pinball) there is an inevitable sense of repetition, perhaps because the original games themselves were, behind the artwork, less distinct than they first appeared. As with many reconstituted products, NES Remix is immediately delicious, but inspires an obsession that it can't sustain for long.

Don't dust off your old Nintendo carts. Just play NES Remix.

A great idea that fails to capitalise on the full extent of Nintendo's 8-bit legacy, although whether that's through greed or foolishness isn't yet clear.

Could be fun for nostalgia buffs, but don't expect any innovation

NES Remix may bring back fond memories if you've played the games it features, but it doesn't actually capture what made some of those games great in the first place.

NES Remix is intelligent, well-designed Nintendo nostalgia

Simple, addictive, and incredibly replayable, NES Remix is one of the smartest games Nintendo has made in ages. No one in gaming (save perhaps Sega) owns as rich a back catalog as Nintendo, and this is a great way to rework all those musty black-box NES games into a form that feel palatable to a contemporary audience. It even manages to make Urban Champion kind of fun; truly, a Christmas miracle.

Let me make this clear -- if you find yourself playing any of these games yearly, whether it's for nostalgia or because you think they're genuinely good games, you will love NES Remix. It lacks a lot of bells and whistles that newcomers may find inexcusable, but I had a smile on my face almost the entire time, and experienced the same controller throwing moments (although a GamePad against a wall would be more disastrous) that made me persevere until I got it right.
