    If you grew up in the 1980s and had the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), you will really enjoy this book! Covering many of the top games of the NES heyday, this book has nice map outlines of game levels that feel like a walk down memory lane. The hardcover edition comes slipcased in a cover that resembles the old gamepaks. If you were fortunate enough to get your hands on the 2016 NES Classic Edition (like I was!) that Nintendo had out last Christmas with 30 built-in games, you migh If you grew up in the 1980s and had the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), you will really enjoy this book!

Just plain fun!

    A compilation of walkthroughs for about a dozen of Nintendo's NES first party games, mostly reprints from old Nintendo Power magazines. That's really what this is. And if you go in expecting that, you won't be terribly disappointed. However it sells itself as a retrospective, with interviews and commentary on the NES. One would hope that means a history of the NES, covering the highlights and shortcomings, the best games by all developers, not just first party, and an real overview of the consol A compilation of walkthroughs for about a dozen of Nintendo's NES first party games, mostly reprints from old Nintendo Power magazines.

Instead it's a reprint of old Nintendo Power guides, with old blurry photos at times, and misprints preserved, and interviews from the time period. It's still quite pretty and makes a great coffee table book, but Nintendo missed a chance to make a really great book.

    This was quite a strange book. I want to start off by saying that I loved the cover and the way the book was presented, as an old NES game cartridge. That part was truly cool. However, the contents were very very strange. The book has coverage of several games that are really old. It contains in depth information about some of the enemies, as well as maps of the levels. It's almost like a a strategy guide. Which is absolutely fine of course except that it also contains some history about the NES This was quite a strange book.

And it also contains some tech stuff that most people won't care about unless you're really into that sort of stuff. So the book just seemed completely muddled to me.

    If you love classic Nintendo games then this is a companion book for you! Beautifully crafted and loaded with a lot of nostalgia! If you scooped up a NES Classic then get this book! It has wonderfully detailed walk throughs of many of the classic games. Sprinkled in between these helpful breakdowns of the games you will find time lines and other NES historical information. A wonderful coffee table book at the least!

    I really don't understand what the appeal of this book is supposed to be. It's not a history of the NES by any means. Instead, it's almost more of a strategy guide for some randomly chosen NES games. Maybe this would be good for coffee table display for the hardest-core of NES fans, but there is absolutely no narrative to this book at all. Screenshots of NES games look great, but that is about all this book has to offer.

    Nicely made, but I realized that I already have so much of this in my old Nintendo Power magazines, that it felt like an unnecessary purchase. However, it was nice to have all these games in one, nice contemporary book.

    Nice collection of vintage Nintendo Power articles and game guides. Covers the core essentials of the NES first party library. Great slipcase and book design but with numerous typos throughout.

    Love the artwork in this book. Wish there were more games and was more complete (for that I would recommend Pat Contri's "Ultimate Nintendo")

    This book is, more or less, just a litany of poorly put-together walkthroughs clipped out of various editions of Nintendo Power magazines (not to be confused with Nintendo Powers' actual walkthrough books, which were superb). I was a bit disappointed because the "retrospective look" this book promises is essentially absent, and the content outside of these narrow walkthroughs (they only touch on a few levels in each game) seem unnecessary and are obviously not very interesting for reading materia This book is, more or less, just a litany of poorly put-together walkthroughs clipped out of various editions of Nintendo Power magazines (not to be confused with Nintendo Powers' actual walkthrough books, which were superb).

I was hoping to find more interviews; however the only interview present in the book is lifted from a 1989 Interview with Shigeru Miyamoto that only has one quote from him. To top it off, at full book price, this shouldn't have an advertisement for the 3DS stuck in the final pages. Shame, Nintendo.

    While fun and nostalgic, this wasn't exactly the book I was expecting - it's basically just a lot of walkthroughs for classic games with a few articles and promotional materials from back when NES was king. While it's fun to see the ad copy touting the "incredible realism" of games from the late 80s, I was hoping for more new content with a contexualizing/retrospective slant. Alas.
