SNES Classic was just released recently and while it is pretty much the same as the original version, the form factor is smaller. The SNES Classic will cost you $79.99 compared to the original’s $59.99 but it is worth the additional money if you have lived through 16-bit gaming and would like to check out the old games that you played.

In this SNES classic review roundup, we are going to show you all the reviews and talk a bit about what the critics have to say about the retro gaming console.

Not to disparage the 8-bit era, but what separates the SNES from the NES is that the extra power afforded developers the opportunity to create greater games.
