    "Addictive."

    July 1, 2011  |   By sabsie1121

    Version: Console Classix 4.22

    Pros

    Despite all the newer games that are out, the best ones are still the classics from Atari and Nintendo. Anyone who grew up in the 70's or 80's knows it. This is a chance to relive all the classics.

    Cons

    Loading and saving games varies depending on the system, but it's not rocket science to figure out. Just a minor inconvenience.

    Summary

    Well worth your time, and well worth the additional charge to get the extra gaming systems. If that's what it takes to keep this site up and running, then so be it.

    "so THAT'S why I didn't keep my Atari"

    December 30, 2010  |   By promytius

    Version: Console Classix 4.22

    Pros

    lots of old really, really old classics

    Cons

    Really really old! The graphics are just ancient - EGA quality; horrible, if you've been away from your Pong for too long.

    Summary

    Interesting and a little disturbing trip down memory lane - we actually thought these games were good, back in the day! Visually I just can't go back. I run an SLI 4 quad machine, and these had me groaning; but hey, some of them actually use ALL 16 colors!
    This was a greet-and-delete for me. For nostalgia buffs, this may satisfy you.

    "crippleware, borderline malware. install at own risk"

    March 28, 2010  |   By LANth3r

    Version: Console Classix 4.15

    Pros

    none, really

    Cons

    you don't actually get the games, you get the client to stream content from their server
    nag screens
    possibility of remote code execution

    Summary

    it is not a game. it is a client-side app to stream games from their vastly underpowered, overused server. if their server goes down, you are left with an entirely useless piece of software.

    the way it runs the games presents gaping security holes; remote code execution through this would be easy.

    "Recent updates are worse, not better."

    March 5, 2010  |   By ajfweb

    Version: Console Classix 4.15

    Pros

    Free, easy to use, wide library of games at the touch of a button.

    Cons

    Poor interface, nag screens, game info removed and replaced with low-quality screenshots.

    Summary

    Needs improvement.

    "a bunch of emulators with a price tag."

    January 25, 2010  |   By wolfennights

    Version: Console Classix 3.8

    Pros

    nice selection.

    Cons

    I could download the same emulators and games from Zophar.net for free.

    Summary

    I look in the program files and see visualboyadvance, znes, and nester in there. I'm sure console classix didn't code them, so I don't think it's right that they're having people pay to use something that can be found for free from the people who actually made it. Not to mention that all these "games" (or roms) can be found through Google, except you don't need a subscription, it stays on your computer, and there is no "other people are playing, plz try later." bs.

    "Makes a pretty good NES"

    December 23, 2009  |   By Opa-Loka

    Version: Console Classix 4.14

    Pros

    This version is smoother than the the others were. No color glitches; not as much sputtering...

    Cons

    I might as well pay the $60 for the whole thing...

    Summary

    Buy it. It's worth it, and you don't need to look around for a store full of old consoles.

    "This new version is the best so far"

    December 10, 2009  |   By Opa-Loka

    Version: Console Classix 4.13

    Pros

    Great game emulation. Easier to use than MAME. Doesn't stutter as much as it once did. Great interface.

    Cons

    I have to pay more to get more games, but this is a minor quibble.
