How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

There's little question that the nostalgic charm of the first-generation iCade didn't fully translate when Ion updated the line with more portable, cheaper options. But while the Core doesn't offer up the same faux-wood-grained charm of its predecessor, it at least works as advertised, bringing a gaming experience to the iPhone and iPad that simple touchscreen controls just can't match. In spite of its $100 price tag, the Core feels a bit cheap, but if you're looking to take your mobile gaming to a slightly less casual level, this could do the trick.
