There are many new retro gaming systems on the market. Some of these systems work great but some do not work well at all. Some of the systems play only one kind of games but some play as many as three different kinds of games. They are almost all made in China but some have the poor quality you expect from China made products and others have much better build quality. You may want to find out how the system you want compares before you buy. The SNES/NES FC Twin Video Game System is one of these systems. If you want to know if the SNES/NES FC Twin Video Game System is for you then you should continue to read on.
The SNES/NES FC Twin Video Game System plays both NES and SNES games as you may have guessed from the name. Lets just call it the FC Twin from now on though. You can get the FC Twin for about $40 online from Amazon, ebay, or even other sites. It is cheaper to buy this one system then each system separately. In fact either original system will probably cost you just a little less then the FC Twin. Many people like getting the multiple system though they do spend just a little more then getting one single system. If you only really want one system then you can save $5-10 and get another retro game system that only has NES or SNES.
The FC Twin is a pretty good system. In many ways it is better then the original system that it was built after. However it does have some flaws. One problem is that you can only use SNES controller with the system. This means that you can not use some of the NES peripherals such as the powerpad, or zapper. Personally I find the powerpad is one of the best things to use the NES for. The console does come with two SNES style controllers. You can also use regular SNES controllers as well. The controllers they come with are a little lighter then the regular ones but they seem to stand up to a lot of wear and tear unlike other cheap similar products. For some reason if you pause a game to long the game will turn off so that is something to watch out for. Also there are a few games that will not play for each system. Most of the games are not to popular anyway but one that is popular that will not work is Castelvania 3 for the NES. Considering most of the retro systems have problems with a few games and that there are literally thousands of games that will work you can not complain to much about a few games not working.
While it does have some faults it is a good system. The system works much better then either the NES or SNES. The superior performance to the NES is more noticeable. Being a toploader you can do not have as many problems as the original NES and the pin connector is better as well so you will not have much trouble getting games to play and not needing to try to blow. The machine is smaller but not in a cheap kind of way but in a more efficient takes less space kind of way. The FC Twin is a well built system compared to many other similar products.
Overall I would recommend the FC Twin to most people. If you are like me though and have some old favorite peripherals you may want to get another system. If however peripherals are not an issue then this system is great for NES or SNES fans. Even people like me who had a Sega not SNES will like being able to play games they missed out on when younger or could only play at friends houses.
