I would definately buy this item again.
My wife and I saw this gam system at NFM while we were shopping for furniture and since we are from the era of arcade games such as this, she expressed interest. I later purchased it for her for Christmas and used the free UPS shipping option. It arrived 1 day after the date shown on their web site which was ok but be cautioned that the next day option may or may not be adhered to. I assembled it on Christmas night which if you follow the instructions, is straight forward. During assembly, I discovered two slight indentions on the left side panels of the unit, probably from being shipped, but not enough to delay using the game nor was it enough to have to request a replacement part and disassemble the unit. After assembly, there were no issues with the unit itself and it functioned exactly as the old arcade systems did in the 80's. The included pedestal also makes the unit height perfect for a stool. My wife loves it! As a side note, I also purchased the extended protection for the simple fact that I have 2 young grandsons that will be playing with it and wanted the peace of mind.

Wonderful idea for the grown up 80s arcade kid
This was a birthday gift for my husband. He spent a majority of his middle/high school years in the local mall arcade, and this was 'the' game he always hit. A lot of nostaliga prob lent to his excitement, but he actually teared up and couldnt stop grinning! He says its just as he remembers, looks, graphics, sounds. He's 6'1 and doesn't have a horrid time trying to play but would prob benefit from the matching stool to play longer. The unit itself went together fairly quickly and everything was labeled. We used a dab of liquid nails on the wood pegs assembly for bonus security but this unit and riser are extremely sturdy. In the end, this got him excited at the idea of buying more units and making an arcade at home. Overall, this was a great special purchase.

Broke out of box, Crappy Customer Service
The product was broke out of the box. Put it all together, power it on and the joystick doesn't work. Contacted Arcade1UP customer service for assistance, they sent me a wiring diagram with instructions on how to rewire the control board - their website states that if I open the unit where the wiring is contained I void my warranty. I explained to customer service I am not a technician and do not feel comfortable rewiring the control board which will subsequently void my warranty. They asked for a video to prove the issue - I have sent the video three times. They acknowledge receipt but claim they can't play it - I've sent the same video to five friends who were able to view it without issue. I've been 7 days trying to get a solution without success. Returning unit, very unsatisfied.

As a kid born in the 70's, I spent many teen years in the arcades playing games such as this one. This is our 2nd one with a riser. We were able to put it together rather quickly. There is a small delay when coming on but it works just like the 80's game. While we have several gaming systems, these from Arcade1UP are truly amazing. You will not go wrong if you enjoy video games. One thing to mention, I am 5 ft. 1 in so I do not need a stool however, those much taller will want to get a stool or chair or create a platform to set the entire system up on to avoid it being too short. These are 3/4 of the original size. We plan to buy more!!!
Really not happy · Review provided by QVC
Sent the wrong item and item defective
I originally purchased the Mortal Kombat arcade . When I reviewed the tracking I noticed it was Galaga. I spoke with a representative who informed me that was nothing they could do and that I could return it. When the item was received I decided to keep as this is a game that My husband as played and he liked it. The game originally played fine but then it just stopped coming on. I am not happy as this was a father's day gift. I felt I was deceived from the beginning as the original game requested was Mortal Kombat yet was switched. Even after deciding to keep the game that was sent it ended up being defective.

Awesome console game without the high price!
So far this machine is money well spent! It appears to be good quality, the cabinet is heavy duty and the screens are actually larger than I expected. Assembly was easy, it can be done by one person but a second set of hands makes it doable in less than 30 minutes. This has been a great distraction for our family during the COVID-19 quarantine and we currently try to beat each others high scores on a daily basis. We also purchased the Arcade1UP Pac-Man machine and it feels like a mini-arcade in our house! If you're a classic video game fan, you'll love these machines.

Order for son 16th birthday gift. We paid someone to put it together and joy stick didn't work. It was glitchy and would not move with demand in certain directions. Contacted Walmart to get a replacement joy stick but was told I had that I had to return the entire game. Now I have to get someone to disassemble it to return in order to receive a replacement. Once I receive the new one, I'll once again have to pay someone to assemble it and I won't receive it by my son's birthday!

It was fun for about a week. Then pacman stopped turning left. We returned it got another and it was fun for about 2 weeks, then pacman stopped turning left. We didn't do anything about it for a year due to craziness of life but since I bought the warranty thought we could get it fixed later. Wrong! It is not easy to get service. Don't waste your money. Faretrade basically stopped mid chat and wouldn't answer. The initial option was to mail it in for service.....

Great quality materials, game doesn't work.
We have a pac-man machine that we bought at the store and it is still running 18 months later. We have purchased Galaga twice now and had it shipped. The first time the game worked for one day and the second time it didn't work at all. The Arcade1Up construction is amazing. Very easy to assemble, very high quality materials. But the game needs to work.

Great fun at a great price!!!
I ordered the Galaga arcade game for my husband's birthday. The shipment arrived two days earlier than expected which was a pleasant surprise. Assembly was not difficult at all. Once it was assembled, he and his friends had several hours of enjoyment playing the game! Each of the guys stated they would be ordering them one for their man cave. Great fun at a good price!!!
