Retro Game Challenge


Relive the good, the bad, and the downright awful with this nostalgic collection.

Each game feels genuine ; In-game magazines are fun to read and offer tips 'n' tricks for each game ; Star Prince, Guadia Quest, and RNHM3 are the best

Young Arino is the bane of my existence ; Challenges are doled out poorly ; Rally King SP and, to a lesser extent, RNHM2 are the worst

I didn't mind playing Rally King. I actually enjoyed it for the most part. Getting booted out of games was frustrating at times but usually that was most irritating when you were already close to fulfilling the second requirement through actually...

Retro Game Challenge is XSEED's localization of a hit Bandai Namco game based on a popular Japanese TV show. How does this $30 DS game stack up against the slew of highly anticipated AAA titles released in February? Check out the review to find out!

Retro Game Challenge


Retro Game Challenge is a title like no other: it's is a mini-game collection that is worth playing for more than 5 minutes, it's a trip down memory lane, and it's a reminder of the past and just how far we have come. Of course, the real question is...

A fantastic addition to the DS library and an amazing trip down memory lane.

Buried in its endless summer is the fact that Retro Game Challenge is seriously bizarre.

Retro Game Challenge (DS)


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.

Unique concept and presentation; most games are genuinely fun; later games are fairly deep; in-game magazines are funny and informative; great sense of humor overall

Some challenges are too simple; two of the games are basically the same; Arino's commentary can get annoying at times; some of the dialogue repeats too often

Retro Game Challenge - DS review at Thunderbolt Games


Nostalgia is a powerful thing. It strikes when you least suspect it, in that one, awe-inspiring moment in which you realize what you've forgotten. What you've left behind. Sure, you might be immersed in some hundred-hour RPG, or slaughtering random...

Retro Game Challenge review for the DS


Push To Start.

Solid retro-styled games; Smorgasbord of 1980s genres; Gets you to reminisce; Appropriate 8-bit graphics and sound

Lasts about a night or two; Challenges are not very challenging; Some localization issues; Kid Amino needs to learn to shut it

Retro Game Challenge


I don't know how to label "my generation", but it's certain that someone in marketing has: Retro Game Challenge caters entirely to those spent a lot of time gaming in the 80s. If you don't know what it was like, RGC will show you. If you do know what...
