Recommendation: meh 4.82 / 5 from 95 reviews

This is one of the best LEGO sets ever made! The detail on each part of the build is astounding. The animated TV set is a joy to behold. The inner mechanism is pretty clever and to see it in action once it is all put together puts a smile on my face. It brings back so many nostalgic memories of playing the original NES on an old CRT TV with crank dials. I highly recommend this LEGO set! You will not be disappointed!

Recommendation: yes by Graham

Although the LEGO Super Mario theme has been somewhat disappointing, 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System is not and offers an original building experience that results in an attractive, functional model that will appeal to life-long LEGO fans as well as those who have never touched a brick before in their lives.

Recommendation: yes by Andrew Becraft (TBB Editor-in-Chief)

I do not hand out “best ever" recommendations often, or lightly. But I believe unequivocally that this set deserves such praise. By the time I was done building it, I really didn't care that I finally had my own NES after a 35-year wait — I was in love with the build, the functional features, and the silly side-scrolling TV, not a mere recreation of a gray box from 1985.

Recommendation: yes by Adam White

The NES is an iconic piece of gaming history and Mario is firmly tied to that era. This makes the LEGO NES a great 18+ set. The build is complex in places, in particular the creation of the segmented scrolling screen belt, but I really enjoyed building the set. There are a few repetitive sections and some slightly fiddly bits, but nothing frustratingly annoying. I heard some people say the scene scrolling can get caught as it moves, but if you make sure all the sections are firmly pressed in place, you won't have a problem. It's a shame the legs are connected to the TV, but this is a small price to pay for what is an amazing feat of LEGO engineering. In all honesty, this could have and would have been an incredible set if it was just the NES. The TV set just makes it even more fun to look at and interact with. This could have merely had a stationary screen of the Mario game and would have looked cool, the ability to make it move is impressive. It didn't need to be compatible with the LEGO Mario figure, but it brings the set to life and makes it even more awesome. There are many things the set didn't need and it would have been a great set, adding all these fun little touches take it to another level.

Recommendation: yes by CapnRex101

71374 Nintendo Entertainment System achieves extraordinary realism, potentially surpassing any previous LEGO model in that regard. The external detail is absolutely spectacular and the designers have made splendid use of existing elements to recreate distinctive shapes from the NES. I am particularly delighted with the controller and the casing around the connection ports on the console, both of which could be mistaken for their real equivalents.
