    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

    Fantastic idea, better execution a must for any Nintendo fan. Great for off tv play on the game pad and fairly priced at £8.99. Well done NINTENDO!!!! Expand

    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 Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Being able to play over a dozen NES classic games for $15, and having plenty of challenges for each game is a brilliant idea. Every challenge featured so far is fun, unique, and of course challenging, the only downside is that the game forces you to play Urban Champion. Expand

    'Bit'e-sized Challenges featuring some classic (and not-so-classic) NES games will keep you coming back for a plethora of unlockables and Miiverse stamps. The gameplay can get stale over extended periods, so this may be a good one to come back to periodically, and/or with a group of friends. The Remix levels also add some dynamic changes to classic gameplay. Expand

    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.
