    Awesome! I feel like a kid again. I’m able to play all the old games i had as a kid plus all the ones we used to rent from the video store. i really like that i can save what level i’m on too.

    this really brings back memories. only thing that sucks is i can’t play duckhunt cuz there’s no gun so i have to give it 4 starts but otherwise i really like it and its easy to use.

    Playing video games was one of the happiest memories of my childhood. I love coming home from work after a long day and unwinding by playing some old games. It brings back such awesome memories and helps me chill out. Its really easy to use and the menus are easy to navigate. I like that i can use cheats its like having game genie. I also like being able to save games that have a bunch of levels so i can pick up where i left off. I’ve had this about 2 weeks now and have played it almost everyday.

    I got this as a gift for my husband’s birthday. It might have been a mistake because now he’s glued to the tv playing Mario and all that LOL. Oh well. Long as it makes him happy which it did.

    I had a problem with one of the controllers quit working so I emailed them and Brian responded within 10 minutes. He sent me another one and it was fine. Really good customer service right there. The system plays really well. A few games on n64 and Play station lag a tiny bit but every game I’ve tried on all the other systems work perfectly just as I remember when I was a kid. I’m more interested in those anyway. I’m gonna be ordering another one to give to my brother for Christmas.

    Easy 5 star rating!! IWell worth the price.I stayed up until 5am the first night playing with my 20 year old son ,I’m 45 we had a great time.So excited for thanksgiving to show this off to the other family members.
    What they show in the unboxing video is exactly what you get and really is amazing.
    There is more here then meets the eye whether your tech savvy or not there’s so much packed into this gameboxhero it’s almost impossible to stop playing it.
    When you see this load up you will realize how much those mini consoles everybody is paying the same price for is a huge rip off for only 30 games!!!!
    It really is a great deal a no brainer to buy this.

    I must say I was skeptical at first. But gave it a try, and I can honestly say, I am more than pleased. All the great games I played when I was younger, and they work perfect. Customer service (Bob) answered any questions within minutes and I must say was very pleased with the helpful info and quick responses. I got the platinum edition and it’s very easy to use and the games are exactly as the originals. Highly recommended for any old school gamer, and at that price,you can’t beat it. Just ordered one for my sister for an xmas present and I know she’ll love it also. Overall… excellent customer service, a very good price, and all the classic games you could ask for. Very glad I bought this and highly recommend to any gamer

    The system works great! The only issues I’ve had are some n64 games turning into “black walls” as I try to play them (Shadowman 64 for example). Would recommend for the sheer number of games given.

    I’ve had my system for about a month now and i absolutely LOVE IT!
    It was precisely as video showed. I’m a real person..not a bot. I want to offer some suggestions for buyers tho. You may want to have wired PS2, Nintendo 64 controllers and a keyboard as well to play some game systems properly.
    Best thing i bought in a long time tho!
    MUST HAVE !!!!!

  21. Rated 5 out of 5


    This is a great product I can’t say enough about it. I was going to buy a small Nintendo classic. This is so much better. I’m real big on presentations and interface. It’s great and looks great. This is easy to control and everything runs so smooth. I can even add roms and get a wireless control.

  22. Rated 5 out of 5


    This is awesome and the customer service is fantastic!! I have been collecting hyperspins and modded systems for years and this is the first one that is truly a plug and play out of the box and has this many games. The MAME is FANTASTIC. I would ask a potential buyer what are you waiting for this is the best deal out their and hours of fun!!!

    Billy Darks 🔒Verified Purchase🔒

    Absolutely as advertised. Shipping was very fast. There are some ROM issues (particularly with MAME) but that is to be expected. Hardware-wise everything is great. Controllers have a nice feel and are almost on par with the SNES controllers after which they’re modeled. The included USB extenders and lengthy 6-ft HDMI cable are also a very considerate touch. I don’t think we turned it off at all the first three days after it arrived!

    Video games were such a big part of the joy I felt as a kid growing up in the 80’s and 90’s. Gamebox Hero allows me to relive that joy. This has so many of the games I grew up playing. It’s simply phenomenal the amount of games that fit on this device. A small percentage of the emulators don’t work but the majority do and are awesome. I play the Mame Arcade games the most. The great customer service responded to my emails. Since most of these games were meant for older screens, I adjust and lower my had tv sharpness between 0-5 to improve the picture. I am one very satisfied customer thanks to the folks at gamebox hero.

    Just received this yesterday and it is just as advertised! Some of the N64 games have a little bit of delay and lag but the other games make up for it. Would recommend to anyone thinking about it. More games than you could play in a lifetime!

    Gamebox Hero simplies retro gaming!
    You will find so many of the games you loved to play as a kid and get to play them again as an adult or play them with your kids. The controllers are not the crappy cheap controllers you might find online but quality controllers that will hold up over time. I doubt I will ever have the desire to buy another retro system from a box store again.

    can’t help but give it 5 stars. came within a couple days of ordering, was easy to setup and i was in retro-heaven. i’d been eyeing the mini’s for a while but i’m glad a craig’s list search brought this to my attention. well worth the money.

    I ordered the Platinum edition. Shipping took 3 days OH to AZ. $139 with discount code VG20. They also donate gaming systems to U.S. Military stationed overseas. That’s great! I bought this for my kids but I think I might order another for me LOL. Don’t be scared, buy it now LOL. 5 STARS for sure!

  31. Rated 4 out of 5


    What can I say? It works pretty well. Kids like it. Even the wife likes it Fun for the whole family I guess plus I get to enjoy the classics from when I was growing up. Only thing I wish is it came with wireless controllers instead of wired ones.

    I have never experienced this level of customer service with an online company before. I bought this 7 or 8 months ago and my kids broke the power box last week yankin on the cord. They were nice enough to send me another one for free. we all like playing it. keeps the kids occupied with non violent games.

    It won’t let me give a 10 out of 5 stars so I give it 5. I can’t believe how many games it has, alot I didn’t remember until scrolling through. Its so many sytems in such a small package and being able to play them all on my 70 inch Samsungis awesome! Highly recommend to Mike on adding a gun for duck hunt or battleclash and wireless controllers. Again 10 out of 5 stars!!! Thanks!

    I was excited but at the same time I was like, this thing is gonna be junk! Boy was I wrong!! This system is simply amazing and it seems like I find something new I can do with it every time I play it. This is every true gamers dream and come to think about, all the money you’ll save trying to stack up an old retro collection! You get the Platinum model and it solves all those problems and issues of trying to track down games and systems that actually work! I think EVERYONE who refers to themselves as a true gamer needs one. It’s also a fantastic way of educating people on video games, the origins of them and the history behind these systems! I haven’t touched my PS4 or Xbox One since I bought mine.

    My brother was telling me about this and i was skeptical because it sounded too good to be true. After playing with it at his house all weekend long, I went ahead and got myself one. I gotta tell you this is a gamers dream come true. EVERY SINGLE GAME from my childhood to early adult life is in this console. I’m about to have a long wonderful season. See yall next year!

    got it within 2 days. I play super Mario with my 4 year old son for the first time. It was amazing to flashback when I played my first game. is really nice to get the kids using traditional controllers instead of touch screen and to be farther away from screen. lots of 2 player games. wish the N64 games were more compatible with the snes controller. got to play SF2 with my son as well. he got soooooo mad losing 1 round but I couldn’t let him win that easy. my 2 year old daughter is excited to learn to play too. great buy! great gift..out of the box working no problem

    I just got mine a few days ago and I almost didn’t buy from this company because I was looking at a few others but I’m so glad I did because it’s super legit. One of the coolest things I’ve ever owned. So much fun and I haven’t even scratched the surface. The customer service is great too, they’ve answered all my questions, quickly too. Thanks guys for making this . It’s freaking awesome!

    I ordered from this company because they actually ship from the US and not from China like all the other sellers on facebook. Overall pleased. Does every single game work? no, but pretty much every game I’ve tried plays great with a couple exceptions. Is it worth the money? heck yeah! you won’t regret it.

    Ok lets start with the negatives

    1. Ken Griffey Jr presents Major League Baseball season mode freezes

    2. Instruction manual was not included with mine.

    Thats it.

    This is probably the coolest thing I’ve ever owned. I’m able to play all my games. They actually save on the system. So you can continue playing. Or if the game does not have a save. Option you can save your slate. And pick it back up where you left off.

    I was a little skeptical at first but after receiving it I was shocked and amazed at how amazing it is.

    Bought the Platinum edition last year and it’s still going strong, all the old classics with a working save feature. During this crisis it’s kept my mind at ease and distracted, controller fits firm and the extension is amazing for bigger screens. Response time from the company is true to their word, AMAZING all around!!!

    I’m very happy with what I got with the platinum system.Only negative mine doesn’t have turbo grafx 16 on it ,no biggie.Customer service and email corispondance is excellent.At first my system didn’t work when I got it.I contacted them by em great customer service agent Hanover and beyond to make things right.I didn’t have my tv set to HDMI is why it didn’t work.Works great now .Microsoft you can keep you junk this is way better and more fun.

  54. Rated 4 out of 5


    Overall I give this a 3.7 The system is great, and for all parts included is a great deal. I do however have some complaints that some might consider nitpicking. The biggest problem is the provided power adapter is simply not powerful enough for this console, even when plugged into a wall as reccomended by instructions (which should not be a requirement in the first place) I was still recieving under voltage notifications. I purchased the correct one for $10 and plugged it into my power strip and have no more indicator. Next is the “user friendly” aspect. When a gane loads up you see a grey box on the screen for a couple seconds, and if you hit the a button it takes you into a config. Screen, which you will most likley never need. All that was needed to be done was turn off a couple settings in the retropie manager and not only does this get rid of the grey box it also displays the cover art of the game instead and disables pressing “a” that takes you to that screen. This is more of a nitpick. Some of the systems have zero cover art (sega genesis) while the super nintendo has almost all cover art. I had to look up an alternate way than the default way (not working) and sure enough it was already installed on this pi, it just needed updated. As far as the game goes, the selection is excellect with the NES and SNES. The arcade is good as well, but it is missing some of the more obscure hidden gems. (Caddilacs and Dinosaurs, Moonwalker, Ninja Baseball Batman) The Genesis seems to be complete as well but missing all cover art, (also no pulseman) which is a shame The other systems I really dont care for but seem to have a good collection. The turbographix is missing Rondo of Blood which is crazy imo. The playstation selection is lacking with a few great games and the n64 barley funtions on most. The games look sound and run great with very very little input lag. And as I said for the full package its a good price, but could def. Be more fine tuned for a better overall product and user expierience. Customer service was top notch.
