Great console, value for money and great product taking into account era.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Overall the experience from the Nintendo 64 is as exactly expected from a console from this era. the game selection for the console is extensive and so are the add ons. The console is easy to set up providing you have the composite cable (YELLOW, RED AND WHITE) insted of the RF Modulator. the console depending condition and accessories influences the price but overall the console is value for money. I bought this product for a present for my son for his birthday because he has always shown an interest in this tech. The graphics compared to todays consoles are poor but this is expected with its age. compared to other products from this era i beieve this is the best option.

Nintendo 64, a timeless console.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I bought this as a gift for my 21yo boyfriend, he had a Nintendo when he was young and after watching some videos online decided he wanted to get a new one. It is very basic, the graphics are not that good, but when you consider when this console was released it was ahead of its time. It is a great, fun console with a wide variety of games for all ages available to purchase on eBay from as little as £0.99. The console itself was not expensive to buy and has a nice big controller, so I think it would still be a great starter console for kids without paying megabucks for alternatives.

Great fun!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Missed out on the N64 when it first came out and decided to give it a go many years later. Retro gaming at a cheap price. Some games can be expensive since they're hard to find (Conker Bad Fur Day and Starcraft 64 which can reach up to about £80!) However, most games are reasonable priced.

I'm a fan of old consoles, I plan to get other consoles but this is a good start. Not many games were made for the N64 when you compare it to the PS1 however the games that were are pretty damn good! Hours of fun, great split screen gaming.

Only downside I would say would be that some games have low frames but it doesn't bother me that much, you get used to it.

Would recommend the N64 for anyone with a love of old console gaming!

Give the N64 a chance and you will find yourself in a video game glory!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I bought this for a few games that others did not have - Goldeneye and South Park ( It's also available on the PS1 but it's really low quality ). Also I liked its simple design and that it is a cartridge based console so there is no optical laser to break and the cartridges are gonna last a lot longer than Discs .
What I didn't like about it is that some games gave clunky controls and they are not comfortable with the N64 controller.
Compared to its rivals - Playstation 1 and Sega Saturn this is a steal! It has better looking games , 4 controller plugs so you could have a gaming party on a weekend with your friends and there's just less to break and I think we're going to have the N64's a lot longer than any other systems from that time because of it.
If you are looking for fun games with you friends or on your own then you should really look into the N64.
Hope you'll end up buying one of these like me because you won't be dissapointed

the best nostalgia trip you can experience.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The N64 is in my opinion one of the greatest game consoles to date, it may have had a smaller library then the PS1 but the games it has are quality. The controller is, I feel, the most comfortable and easy to use of all gaming controllers and is severely underrated. I decided to purchase one as i have so much fun playing all the classics like Goldeneye, Ocarina of Time, Majoras Mask, Banjo Kazooie and many more. I encourage more people to go back in time to revisit this classic console.

A great nostalgic product that everyone should re-invest in!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I purchased this console for its nostalgia. I love the games that it has; such as Zelda: Ocarina of Time and all of the other classics. I think that the graphics, though obviously inferior to modern consoles like the Playstation 3, as they have some sort of grip on me, though this is probably the nostalgia.

I think that this is great value for money and would recommend for a friend.

NINTENDO 64 CONSOLE

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The Nintendo 64 had good amount of games but most of the games you got tired of within a day or two and the games are so much more expensive than the other consoles. The controllers are confusing as hell, the control stick gets loose after a while but i did like the durability of the system and the games. The best games like super mario 64 was not for me, mario is too slow mabye its just me because ive always hated mario really but that is basically the only games for it all you see is mario mario mario nothing else.

Love it!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The N64 grey console is excellent. It's rugged and hardly ever has any damage to it even though its at least a decade old. It works every time, its very easy to use and has a very simple design. I bought this product because it reminded me of playing goldeneye multiplayer with my friends over 15 years ago now! I love the red light that switches on when you push the power button and i love all the cool games and the vintage colours and sounds. Compared to other products like the wii ps2 ps3 and ps3 this one is like going to the arcade in your house! Like I said it hardly ever breaks unlike the ps2 or wii for example also the controller is very easy to use and much better than any other consoles' controllers and it comes in funky colours like bright yellow!
