Critic Reviews for Console Wars

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (2)

  • Just like the games of the era, Console Wars is bright, engaging, and frequently so fast-moving and unfocused that it might give you a headache.

    September 28, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • The nostalgia rush of revisiting the industry's 16-bit golden age is checked by an unwillingness to reflect on any part of it.

    September 23, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Console Wars is a vivid representation of marketing and audiovisual culture in the nineties. A concise, precise and joyful documentary about a mediatic war that shaped the imagination of millions around the globe. [Full review in Spanish]

    December 2, 2020 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…
  • Although [it] could have used more perspectives of Japanese creators and business executives, Console Wars does a very good job at presenting an overall cautionary tale about how companies that are market leaders shouldn't get too comfortable or arrogant.

    November 4, 2020 | Full Review…
  • An entertaining history lesson about the conflicts between and the rise and fall of the world's video game giants.

    October 28, 2020 | Rating: 3.5 / 5 | Full Review…
  • Like the conflict between Nintendo and Sega, this documentary feels a little behind the times and pales a bit compared to the other options out there. It is still an enjoyable watch but doesn't dive nearly as deep as it could have.
