Agregated reviews (19) Retro Game Base - London

I've heard the shop was one of the best in london and was very excited to discover it, so i drove from east london...didn't worth it, i was very disapointed, poor choice and/or uninteresting games for nes, super nes, n64, gamecube, game boy and gba, many unofficial gamepads.. won't come back, though a large choice for games before the 90's

I bought a 'reconditioned' PlayStation 2 from here and it lasted about a day. Wouldn't read PlayStation 1 games and the disc drive sounded really loud for an original PlayStation 2. I couldn't viably return as the store is a good distance from me and I bought it on a day trip. Was very disappointed.

Been there many times. Great variety of systems, accessories and games... some even dating back to pre-NES days. Lots of interesting rare stuff as well as plenty of Japanese imports. The staff are enthusiasts themselves and provide good service. A must visit for any retro gamer!

These guys know their stuff, are enthusiasts themselves, and have a personable attitude to customers. The weekday hours aren't perfect at the moment (only open until 18:00) but they've only been open for a little while.

Best of luck and will return again.

Very competent ! they repaired my retro handheld game 'Frogger' which I thought was definitely dead. I was so happy to see It coming back back to life. I do recommend them big time.

This shop is for the purists. They have a lot of retro games in all consoles, some pc games with big boxes and a lot of consoles for sales. I went there a number of times and love the staff.

Retro Game Base do not even deserve 1 star. I purchased an item online, they sent me something else, then they refused to do anything about it. Do NOT use this store, they are scammers.

One of the best video game stores I've been to. They have a lot of rare and interesting pieces and most items are fairly priced. Staff also know their stuff. Highly recommended.

Somewhat off the beaten track than the city of London, the smallest of expectations and very high prices.
