February 10, 2009 - Excellent - Despite the constant presence of two kids on the lower screen, RGC is aimed directly at people who fondly remember saving their pennies to purchase titles the likes of Metroid or Super Mario Bros. 3. But don't worry, youngbloods -- you can play it and enjoy it, too.
April 13, 2009 - Good - For many of us trying to recapture those childhood feelings of awe and wonder, Retro Game Challenge gets to the very heart of why we still play videogames and for that is to be applauded.
February 23, 2009 - Good - Lovingly recreated gameplay combines with a playful presentation to make Retro Game Challenge a unique simulation of the adolescence of video games that's easy to enjoy no matter which decade you were born in.
February 6, 2009 - Good - While the games here have their flaws, the kid in you who once loved 8-bit games will be won over by the charms of this knowing homage to their glory days.
February 12, 2009 - Good - Ultimately, how much you'll like this depends on the player. It works on several levels, but Retro Game Challenge is more enjoyable the nerdier and possibly older you are.
February 9, 2009 - Good - The developers of Retro Game Challenge didn't just accurately recreate 8-bit gaming -- they made a bunch of really good games.
February 13, 2009 - Mediocre - Retro Game Challenge is a great concept, but the execution makes things more tedious than they needed to be. If it were a bit more open-ended about which games you could play at any given time and didn't double-up on some of the games, it'd be a pretty cool little collection.
