NES Remix, Emperors New Clothes.

Must admit, I think it really is a mediocre (at best) game.

No retry on a game of this nature is just moronic, why must I constantly sit through a menu screen giving me stickers for Miiverse, (a feature I'll never use and also something that could be done in the background where upon finishing the level it could show you everything you've accumulated in 1 go) to then be taken back to the menu to then reload to have another go at getting the 3 star rating?

The timer is broken, quite badly. Probably because get 3 timers it seems, but the important one is invisible.

You get the level timer on the game in question (when applicable) and a timer to the right, however the clear time is always different to what you actually did it in.

How, on a Super Mario level with a 120 timer, can I beat it with 74 left on the clock but get a clear time of 19 seconds? In what universe of mathematics does that calculate?

I especially fail to understand how on a Mario Bros. Level, finishing with less than half a second nets you a 3 star rating on 1 level, but on others... Not so much.

Also, maybe it's a 60hz thing, but every game feels off. It's taking me ages to get to grips with games I've been playing for 24 years (in some cases), the only other times I've experienced this, is when playing 60hz versions of SNES games when I'm used to the 50hz versions.

All in all, the only time I'm ever having any fun is in the remix stages, everything else is boring me to tears (Opinion) and it's not helped by how broken and how user unfriendly it is.

FYI The timer in SMB never was in seconds. It's more or less 10 in-game for 4 real life seconds.

So...
19 seconds - 4
X - 10

190/4 = 47.5

120 - 47-5 = 72.5

As you can see, it's pretty close to what you got.

You can't criticize Nintendo and get away with it, TC. They won't stand for it around here. Fall in line Cadet! :)

Well that's because it has one, pause the game and select restart.

he's complaining about not being able to retry the stage right away after completing it and failing to get a 3 Star ranking, since the game makes him sit through pointless bull**** if he does complete it, and he has no way of knowing whether or not he failed UNTIL he completes the stage due to inconsistent 3 Star rank requirements

his complaint is valid

Each stage is complete even if you get a single star. Even if he didn't get 3 stars he could always restart the stage until he's happy with his run through it, plus if you're replaying a stage a 2nd time it's like 3 seconds from receiving the score to being back to the menu with the challenge you just played selected.

with the 50hz thing... did all games run really slow in europe back in the day? I know sonic did... because it wasn't like 30hz vs. 60hz today.
