    My lovely wife gifted me this wonderful little machine for my birthday last year. Let me tell you, I was absolutely blown away with both how many of the old games from my childhood and youth can be found on here as well the vast amount of hours that can be lost losing one’s self in the treasure trove of content through games I’ve never played little own heard of.



    However, my review isn’t to sell you on the machine. If you want that there is more than enough content and testimonials for you to skim through on others individuals who have left reviews. No friend, I’m here to tell you about my experience after the sale. Months, in fact almost a full year after. I did some digging on the game box hero website one day, because I really wanted to enjoy the machine as I do the majority of the other consoles I own…that is to say from any chair or couch in my living room regardless of distance from wireless controllers. Come to find out there are instructions on how to do exactly that in the FAQ of their website. However, despite following the instructions EXACTLY I was able to move around within the menus of a wireless controller, but once I got to the title screen of the game itself nothing worked! I was frustrated. I sent an email to the company explaining my dilemma, not expecting to hear anything back. If I did, it would be a wild goose hunt or cost me extra money or both. Isn’t that what we’ve come to expect from any company nowadays? To my surprise boy was I wrong. An associate named Mike emailed me back shortly. Would you know, that man worked tirelessly with me for about a week by e-mail day and night to resolve my issue. Step-by-step he told what to do and how to do it. I felt like I was the only customer they had. Bar none it was the best customer service experience I’ve ever had. Mike really cared. I was never changed extra, put on hold, never heard from again, or felt like a number. To me, that experience meant more than the fun I have with the machine itself. I’m a disabled veteran and this little machine takes my mind off pain and other things helping to get through the day. But Mike and those that work for this company care about people. And that matters more.

    Game Box Hero was a great find. I probably put enough money into Punch Out! to buy my own machine. I haven’t played this game in years but am enjoying again from my man cave/home office. The selection of games is incredible — just about everything I played either at the arcade or on Nintendo or C64 is now all housed in a system about the same size as a SNES cartridge. Game Box Hero truly delivers and won’t disappoint someone seeking a classic gaming experience.

    This product is simply amazing! Growing up I had the Atari 2600 and later a Nintendo and Gameboy plus spent a lot of time at the arcade. As I got older, I lost a lot of my gaming love, but still enjoyed playing the old classics. I have used PC emulators to relive playing some of the old games but have never found one I thought was very good. This system caught my eye and I decided to give it a try. I LOVE it! I get to play the old classics and introduce the games I loved to my 4 year old son who has really caught the bug. I hope he continues to like the older games. We don't let him play much of the newer games on phones and PC's as they seem much more violent than the older ones. Not to say that the old games didn't have violence, but it was not so realistic as to confuse a young player. I also like that a lot of the learning games have been converted as well. Great job guys!!

    This is not only an amazing product, but the price for what you get is unbeatable. As you can see in my picture, my personal favorite was the on/off switch attached that makes it really easy to get out of Retro Pie Emulation. This is super affordable, very fast shipping, really compact (in the picture you will see... about the size of a credit card!), and also you get so many amazing games from many amazing systems. Did I mention that the support team is great too?! Any questions I had were answered IMMEDIATELY; and to be honest I didn’t have many because this is LITERALLY plug and play. DO NOT miss out on this one (I got the platinum edition).

    If you're a real gamer like myself and know the history of gaming like I do? This is an absolute must have system. I've had mine for over a year now and as of a matter of fact, I'm playing it right now! Not only does it have a collection of your favorite retro systems on it but I love how you can create your own personal gaming library with all your own hand picked titles and place them in their own favorites list. There's a lot of different options you can choose from like background themes, display style and one of the best features for me personally is that you can save on the fly and pick up where you left off!!! This system is a true gamer's paradise. You will not be disappointed in buying one. Buy yours today, you can thank me later!!!!

    Shipped with everything promised. Only took a few minutes to set up and when I turned it on, it was like being transported back to when I got my C64, NES and Super Nintendo ...

    Alright everyone, I own a Game Box Hero: Platinum Edition and here are my thoughts. I give it 4.5 out 5. The reason for this are simply because the controllers you receive are rather janky, but they work. If you've PS controllers, you can sync those to the console for something sturdier to use. I've synced my PS4 controlers to it and even my SNES Classic Edition controllers as well, but I recommend that you visit Raphnet Technologies for the adapter to use into the USB slots.

    As for the games, I'll admit that I'm still unable to get any of the C64 games to play, but the list is also expansive. Many of the systems have the cheat codes already installed, all you've to do is use them. There are a few games I noticed missing which saddened me (Michael Jackson's MOONWALKER for MAME2003, WWF Superstars for MAME, PONG for MAME2003 and Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for N64), but good lord there's enough to keep you busy! One that I had hoped to play was The Nintendo World Championships, but doesn't go past the title screen which makes me wonder if I'm even NES World Champion material like Captain N?!

    Overall, I'd say it's worth getting!

    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.

    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!!!

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
