It’s no secret that the Anbernic RG552 is an expensive device, with poor price-to-performance. At its starting retail price of $227, it can be disappointing that it’s not powerful enough to run GameCube or PlayStation 2 at acceptable levels, and it’s a bad deal compared to its competition.
However, there are some aspects of this device that really shine — namely its screen and overall feel when it comes to d-pad-centric gaming — and so in this guide I’m going to walk you through all the little tweaks and tricks I use to get the most out of this device. At the end of the day, the Anbernic RG552 is my favorite console for retro (i.e. 32-bit and below) gaming, and with these tweaks, I think you might agree.
