Retro Game Challenge

The 8th Circuit
12 May 2009
  • Excerpt: When one hears the words Retro Game Challenge , one of the first images that comes to mind are those cheesy compilations companies have pumped out low-quality titles for years now. In fact, the company behind this release, Namco Bandai, is one of the worst for their constant releases of Ridge Racer , Pacman , and Mappy .

Retro Game Challenge (DS)

The Review Busters
23 March 2009
  • Conclusion: What more can you want than full classic games on one Nintendo DS cartridge? Retro Game Challenge is the sort of game that will be loved by hardcore gamers for years to come. This might not be the best title for modern games but it is worth a shot. XSEED Games might have created one of the top games of 2009 already.

The Gamers Temple
22 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Retro Game Challenge is a clever, interesting, and enjoyable tribute to NES gaming in the 1980s. The premise of the game is that a mysterious Japanese gaming guru has sent you back in time to the mid 1980s. In order for you to earn the right to return to your own time you must complete a series of gaming challenges, all of which involve 1980s style console games.

Retro Game Challenge

AV Club
23 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Feels like the first time.
  • Pros: Arino’s challenges play like modern-day Xbox Achievements. These short-term goals have a transformative effect on the games, making play sessions feel more bite-sized (at least early on) and a lot more interesting.
  • Cons: The same setbacks that inspired players to chuck controllers in ’89 will send them flying in ’09. Tough boss fights are easy to deal with, but losing all your progress because you forgot to use the right cheat code can be disheartening.

  • Conclusion: Ce Retro Game Challenge, qu’on se le dise, est un titre indispensable pour tous les possesseurs de Nintendo DS. Fun, simple, terriblement accrocheur, il offre derrière son jeu subtil sur la nostalgie une expérience terriblement réjouissante qui ne pourra que vous replonger quelques années en arrière. Attention cependant, le soft ne plaira pas à tout le monde.
