    If you can get behind the notion of old school difficulty and adore the WarioWare formula, NES Remix will hit all the right notes.

    A brilliant reminder of Ninty's design genius, hampered by iffy game selection. [March 2014, p.83]

    Nes Remix define a new way to enjoy retrogaming.

    It misses an extra push to become a great playable tribute, but still is a fun way of (re)discover these NES classics.
  5. A brilliant idea, handled carelessly. Some of these oldies are far from golden, but with some fine-tuning, a sequel would be very welcome indeed.

    As with many reconstituted products, NES Remix is immediately delicious, but inspires an obsession that it can't sustain for long.

    As if getting excited for the involved games wasn't difficult enough, NES Remix's ideas for challenges are repetitive and widely underwhelming. The arbitrary goals friends assign each other for games they've mastered are better than all but NES Remix's few fleeting moments of greatness, and that's genuinely disappointing when considering Nintendo's usual brilliance at reworking its history in enjoyable ways.

    Super fun and addictive. Flashbacks of some of the best games of all time. A history lesson in game design that everybody that plays video games should take, and it's only $15. I can't think of any game at this price point I enjoyed so much besides Hotline Miami. Far too low of a metacritic rating. Expand

    It's a really fun, simple game, that is worth your money if you enjoy retro games. It offers a nice challenge and is very cheap. It can get a little repetitive, but for the most part, it offers great variety in what it has. Expand

    this game is pretty cool. it's a combination between the old classic games of the nes with the addictiveness of mobile type games shot at you in quick succession. it's a fun game and offers a lot of levels for you to be challenged in. it might get a little repetitive but the fun comes in when doing the remixes. it's a good game for old and new gamers.

    NES Remix is great and really fun to play, it's also really cheap for a cool minigame-challenge collection. It's a pity that some missions feel repetitive Collapse

    Seriously, what's not to like about this game. Plenty of fun from NES days past. So many lvls to try. Great for the price. Does get repetitive, especially when trying to get rainbow stars on everything. Expand

    NES Remix is more than a simple compilation of bite-sized challenges from your favorite old-school NES titles; it's almost a rite to passage for anyone that grew up enveloping themselves in the fun atmosphere thee games created during our childhoods. Sure, I would have rather used my Wii remote than the GamePad, but that didn't cut back on my fun any less. If you're into this sort of thing, it shouldn't be difficult to give up $15 for this.

    It plays out like cold-hearted cash grab, seemingly spat out just so the Wii U has something on its eShop this holiday season. nintendo did this before. remember super mario all stars on the wii? this game has some great games, and some games that... well, didnt age good. there are new challenges, but they are really minor. i was really expecting something well.
