- 90AVERAGE USER SCORE1 ReviewsRalph90March 29, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The Super Nes Classic Edition is a real call back to the 16-Bit era. I had one of these when the originally came out in the 90`s. I lot of great games and some the all time best. The only real problem I have with the system is the save feature. You have to push the reset button to back out of the game to the home menu screen. It can become an issue if you need to save often. But it`s not a game breaker. Just something you have to adjust to.
