NES Classic Edition review: The best and worst of retro gaming

At $60, the NES Classic Edition offers an incredible nostalgic value: Two dollars a game for many of Nintendo's most iconic titles. The games all play great too -- but short controller cables mean you’ll be sitting a lot closer to the TV than you'd probably like.

Pros
  • Looks and feels just like the original NES
  • Great selection of games with something for everyone
  • Can be powered by your TV's USB port
  • Excellent NES emulation
Cons
  • Short controller cables
  • No way to buy new games
  • Won't support your original accessories
  • It's already out of stock everywhere
