Classic Game Room HD breaks out another amazing video game review of the classic 1987 controller for the Nintendo Entertainment System, the NES ADVANTAGE!!! Hell yeah, get the advantage in games like 1943 and Star Soldier! Use the arcade style joystick and turbo buttons to your advantage to kick the crap out of hordes of enemy airplanes and space ships. The NES Advantage is easy to find at online auctions like ebay and has tremendous build quality. It withstands the test of time well and just feels like a real arcade joystick. It also had a unique slow feature which would pause and unpause the game. It could be used for one or two player games like Super Mario Brothers Bros. where you didn’t play against each other, but rather switched between 1 and 2 players. The turbo buttons are rock solid and variable, you can adjust independently of each other. You simply can’t go wrong with the most well designed old school classic video game fighting or arcade style joystick controller ever made. Get the advantage! Does not work with Xbox 360, Playstation 2 PS2, Playstation 3 PS3 or Wii Virtual Console. Does work for the Nintendo. One of the best accessories out there (there were lots of neat and bizarre add-ons for the NES like ROB the Robot and that weird ass power glove.) See gameplay of one in action! Games like Contra, Metroid and Bionic Commando will work with the NES Advantage.
