I vaguely remember that. I think I played it at a movie theater once or twice.
I've finally spent a long time with the NEO GEO X. So for those on the fence about it here are my thoughts:
It's a good system that gets undeserved criticism but isn't perfect. I think because of the Neo Geo legacy people expected this to be top-quality...well, for $200, it's not. If it was $800, as it was originally rumoured, then fine. But for $200, have people lost their minds? Let's be realistic here. When the Neo Geo came out in 1990 it was a BRAND NEW system, and it cost about $300, in 1990 currency. Each game was about $200--each game--and the good ones have become rare so now the actual cartridge of Metal Slug is about $800. Yes, this is emulation. Yes, the build quality is not quite as good as the original. But let's crunch some numbers. This thing has 20 classic games pre-installed. If you were to buy the original carts of all 20 it would be about $10,000 or so. You might as well flush that money down the toilet. No game system is worth that, the Neo Geo was great, but not that great, it was marginally better than the SNES and came with a great arcade stick. This one is $200, comes with the same arace stick--admittedly, not built to the same quality--plus $10,000 worth of great games, AND IT CONVERTS INTO A HIGH QUALITY HANDHELD SYSTEM. In my opinion people need to get some serious perspective. If this was an $800 system, I would have some major problems--but it looks nice, plays nice and works well enough, and with dirt-cheap games gives you great bang for your buck. Some people have said the HDMI output is softer than the original--maybe, but I could tell little difference between this and my MAME Neo Geo games, except these have been enhanced for 16x9.
My advice: get it if you like SNK/.Neo-Geo games, but it won't handle quite as well as the original. However, for $200, this is by far the most valuable thing SNK has ever released.
-Arcade stick is cheap. It's light, and the buttons and stick aren't as responsive or high quality as the original. My biggest gripe. It does the job though but I really wished they made this a bit better.
-No original games so far. Come on SNK, give us 2 or 3, these are cheap, 2D 24-bit games.
-No wi-fi or PC connectivity. To be honest I don't care but some people do.
-Docking station connectors feel a bit cheap and imprecise. Not a big deal, but you do have to wiggle them a bit when connecting.
-Looks and plays the same as the original, IMO--or very close to it
-16x9 format, but technically can be changed to original 4x3
-Arcade stick is USB and can be used on MAME or whatever--offsetting the lesser build quality
-Handheld unit itself is very well made and is very comfy--in fact, it's one of the slickest looking handheld I have seen. It plays very well.
-Converts into a console with HDMI out and composite out--amazing
-20 of the best SNK games tied to the system at all time, with more that you can load on SD cards.
Overall, if you like classic games this is a very good but imperfect system. The handheld itself is fantastic, is built well and handles well. It converts into a console and has more than one output option. It comes with 20 awesome games, including a couple I had never played that I fell in love with. My only major gripe is that I wish the arcade stick was heavier and built more solidly, but it does the job, and being a USB controller this almost makes up for it. I would rank this a solid 8/10. $200 is a very good price for all you get, and some critics are frankly a little ignorant. However, if you pay more than $230 or $240 you better be a die-hard SNK fan. New game cards are being released next month though, like Metal Slug 2!
