Excerpt: This title is like a diamond in the rough! If you're a gamer from the 80's or even a fledgling gamer that has a taste for everything retro, this is exactly what you've been waiting for. Although the games are simple, they are well designed and expertly made to recapture what 8-bit gaming was all about. Now that the price is so reduced, you'd be crazy to miss out on the value this title contains.
Pros: Easy to learn, Fun To Play, Good Audio, Kid Appropriate
Summary: To someone unfamiliar with the show this game is based on Retro Game Challenge is going to seem really odd. It's a selection of retro style games within a strange framework. Anyone familiar with Game Center CX will instantly understand the premise, and all the references said framework provides. Anyone else might be left scratching their head.
Summary: Retro Game Challenge is a wonderfully charming, if flawed game. All the games in the game are very easy to pick up and play, but everyone will find some vastly more fun that the others. It should also be noted that there are 4 challenges for each game that must be beaten before moving on to the next one. Essentially, if you don't like a game, you are forced to constantly replay it to unlock the next one. The commentary of the characters also gets a bit annoying.
If you grew up with the original Nintendo... you will love this game.

Summary: This game is just fun. Everything I remember as a kid is in this game. I love it! Check it out especially if you have played games your whole life and are in your late 20's early 30's. Awesome!!!
Summary: Nostalgia is tricky. There's a perpetual sense of 'the grass is greener' when it comes to our childhoods, and rose colored glasses are the prescription most of us wear, like it or not. Going back to the cartoons, TV shows, and games we enjoyed as children is usually a dangerous proposition. It is for me, anyway.
The embodiment of my gaming past. Our gaming past.

Summary: I haven't played this game to completion, this post is to remark on how this game has already touched the heart of an 'older' gamer, and endeared itself to me. As you may, or may not know, your adversary in the 'game world' sends you back in time to the 80s, to play game challenges in order to return to the present. You actually play alongside him, in his house, on his gaming system, but he's a child of course, and has no knowledge of his future self, until you show up.

Summary: There's a fun television show in Japan called Game Center CX, where a comedian named Shinya Arino tries his hand at retro video games. Fans can wax nostalgic as the host plays popular titles, particularly those from the original 8-bit Nintendo, which were usually pretty tough. In Retro Game Challenge, the tables are turned when Arino sends the player back to the '80s to play a variety of games lovingly based on classics from that era.
