  1. Each game is short on substance but long on fun.
  2. Packs a lot of concentrated, old-school fun.
  3. These games might have been fun portables 20 years ago, but now they're too simple and boring. [Feb 2003, p.110]
  4. They're done very well too, but in a day and age where people are accustomed to gravity defying Matrix-like moves that spin the room around in 360 degrees -- these basics look a lot less appealing than they ought to be.

    Old-school gamers will love G&W Gallery 4, as will anyone who's up for a pure, simple challenge. [Jan 2003, p.65]
  6. The games are certainly strong enough to stand on their gameplay alone.
  7. 61
    These games probably should have stayed buried in the time capsule from which they were pulled.
  8. Recaptures what made gaming so magical when we were younger, simple gameplay combined with very addictive game concepts.
  9. 70
    Just as long as you're not looking for anything deep or engrossing, Game & Watch Gallery 4 offers a huge array of simplistic games to discover.
  10. Packs in six simple, but fun, games for one or two players. [Nov 2002, p.76]
  11. A dream come true for fans of ‘80’s-style arcade games. If you can put up with the retro graphics and a couple of duds that got thrown in, you'll find a lot of value for your buck.
  12. So simple, yet so addictive. The Nintendo classics haven’t lost their magic touch one bit, and they are still very hard to put down.
  13. The perfect solution for gamers who play for half-an-hour at a crack. Just don't come looking for a lot of depth here. [Spring 2003, p.32]
  14. Perhaps it’s not quite worthy of the asking price, but so long as you enjoy at least six or seven of the games (and you most likely will), you’ll be getting enough to keep any gamer happy for a good while.

The modern/classicGame & Watch Gallery 4 is a bunch of basic, but challenging, games that are fun when you really have nothing else to do. The modern/classic game choices were a genius game addition. One of the downsides though is that once the game gets going, it starts getting less and less humanly possible. To unlock everything in this game you would need the reflexes of a supercomputer. Overall, the games are fine little time wasters that you can ever win, but nothing to take seriously as a video game. Full Review »
