About the Product:

In the game, you have functions such as Player 1 Start and Player 2 Start, Home, Save, Load, and Rewind through designated buttons.
The controller is connected through Bluetooth or USB. This connectivity gives the controller the ability to be used with other devices such as PCs or other consoles.

As soon as you touch the controllers, you know that it is a well-made piece of equipment. All the buttons work well, the trackball is smooth and the joystick doesn’t feel like it would be easily broken.

Verdict: Legends Gamer Pro
The Legends Gamer Pro arcade gaming system at first look, seems to be just another one of those arcade style games. But, as you look closer, it is so much more and has more capabilities than just playing the 150 built-in games. There is more than one way to connect, however, the wireless connection was sometimes a little less reliable. The downside to this system is the price of over $200. That’s a little steep so you really have think all the features are worth the price. If the price doesn’t bother you, overall, this arcade system is packed with fun and would make a nice addition to any gamer’s collection.
