Playstation Classic Review

I was delighted in early 2018 when I discovered that a retro release of the iconic PS1 (Playstation One) was coming out before christmas. I eagerly purchased it and have since played more than 50 hours across the 20 different games.

My first initial thoughts

When I first brought it home and opened it up i was delighted to see that it looked just as I remembered it, only smaller. Well, 45% smaller and this novelty is pretty cool.

It was pretty quick easy to set up, and ready play right away. My only gripe with the set is that the PS Classic power supply cable a usb port and does not come with a powerpoint link meaning that you need to plug it into a phone charger port, pre=existing console (I used my PS4) or whatever fits a usb.

My second issue was the length of the controllers. The are ridiculously short and I had to and purchase x2 usb cable extension.

Out of the 20 games accompanying the PS Classic, I have sorted them out in three main categories: Great, Good and OK.

The top 3 games in my personal opinion that come with the PS Classic are:

  1. Tekken 3
  2. Odd World: Abe’s Odyssey
  3. Rayman

The next 5 games

  1. Twisted Metal
  2. Ridge Racer Type 4
  3. Destruction Derby
  4. Cool Boarders 2
  5. Grand Theft Auto

The other 12 games I consider to be in the OK category. The full list of games that come with the PS Classic are:

  • Battle Arena Toshinden™
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash!
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Mr. Driller
  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee®
  • Rayman
  • Resident Evil™ Director’s Cut
  • Revelations: Persona
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo®
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tekken 3
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
  • Twisted Metal
  • Wild Arms

I would have liked to have seen some other titles in there like, Tomb Raider, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Mortal Combat, nut unfortunately they were not.

Summary

The PS Classic is a delightful little bit of nostalgia and I absolutely love it. Games that I had forgotten about from childhood brought back fond memories.

I am a slightly bit disappointed with the list of games, they could have been better but with some older titles like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro being remastered and released on the PS4 I understand why they never made it on the PS Classic console.

I have been playing a lot of Tekken 3, it was a game that I heavily played as kid and its really cool watching my own son play it as well.

Rating 3.8/5.0 Stars

I rate this 3.8 out of 5.0 stars, the game selection could have been better and the controllers could have been longer but overall this is a great purchase. I highly recommend the PS Classic to 90s Gamers and young gamers.
