Description: The article below is mainly designed to center on the topic which is about the popular point of Walmart nes classic. The author is going to talk about another knockoff console, showing us fake NES classic edition knockoff clone and some progresses they have made about it recently.
The game nerd is back here to review another knockoff console, this one is the NES classic edition bootleg from Aliexpress, it was being sold in italics best, but only for a short time, they’ve sent that it pulls and I have no idea when it’ll be back.
If it does come back, I will provide a link for those who are interested in it, but for now, it’s offline, that being said let’s get to the review, the box itself is based on the power agent box added consoles that I’ll get into that a little bit later.
If you were to look at the box alone, you could probably be duped into buying this thinking it’s a pal edition console, because they did a good job cloning it or getting the scans online, I should be saying now, it’s on to the manual, the manual itself.
They did the same thing, they do with the boxart which is fine scans of it online and copy it original Nintendo seal of quality now also the consolação, the only difference that I can personally see is maybe the controller ports and then where it says Nintendo Entertainment System, the thought that they use, there is bolder than on the original consoles other than that.
It looks similar, I can’t see any other differences myself at least maybe the screw now, the controller, I was told that it looks different in the original, but to me, the controller looks the same.
In my honest opinion, it feels great, it feels exactly the same, it is a very good job making this controller down to the fonts, they use to the back to the buttons, everything about it feels great.
But the consuls themselves compared side-by-side, you can start seeing the differences that I was talking about the fonts for the Nintendo Entertainment System does look bolder and it’s slightly off center on the knockoff and the controller ports again.
Look a little bit different that being said the backside look the same except for maybe the DPN, now let’s get into what the console looks and sounds like when it’s turned on, but before that, here’s the PCB board for those who are interested in seeing it.
As far as options go on the menu and the display the languages, the options don’t work whatsoever, you can change the language, I change it to French, it’s still going to stay the same as shown now.
If I change it to Italian, it’s going to do the same thing, it stays in English, so the options are more or less there for decoration, you might as well leave it in English, because it’s not going to make a difference, the legal notices are there, but it’s copied and pasted, so what do you expect?
The same can be said for the manuals, I don’t know if they’ll work, but I’m sure they do, since they’re going to be run off this bone and the display is there, but I haven’t tested it too much, because I like my games in full-screen, the games work fine, those that are at least in NTSC, because I’m in the US, this console does contain both towel and NTSC roms which I find very strange, mainly because it sticks to one set of Rome.
Thankfully, most of the games on here are NTSC roams, but the ones that I found to be progress in Rome’s are Mega Man 2 and the Super Mario Brothers trilogy, take a listen to Mega Man 2 and now here’s ninja gaiden and back to cowl mode with Super Mario Brothers.
That wraps up my review for this console in all honesty, I’d give this console of 3 out of 5, mainly because it has its problems, but the controller, like I said, feels great, most of the wrongs are NTSC which is a plus sight for those of us living in the US.
As I mentioned before, it’s a bootleg, it’s a counterfeit, it’s to be expected that it has problems, so if you didn’t get to get an NES classic, when it came out maybe try giving this one a shot or you can always build the retro pie, nothing is wrong with that.
The last thing that I want to mention is that when the music starts to loop, it starts to lag and when it starts to lag, it becomes very difficult to click a game alongside that another negative thing.
I could say and this is only a downside to some, you cannot add your own games hack Qi does not work on this because of a different board that it uses other than that, I mean you can’t use suspend points, because all those different options were there for decoration, so resetting the console truly resets it.
That’s all I have to say about this console, it’s average for a clone, they did a decent job, making it three out of five, it is up to you, if you want to get it, if it ever comes back, I’ll provide a link, but that’s what the console is now, that’s the progress they’ve made so far, if they ever do an update in the future, I’ll be sure to get it and I’ll review that one, this has been Game Nerd, I’ll see you later, thank you.
