Excerpt: Before it was even released, I’d heard word that this so called “Ultimate” collection of Mega Drive games was missing the memorable game of that platform, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, achieved by slotting the Sonic 3 cartridge into the Sonic & Knuckles cart and enjoying the benefits of both games. The weirdest part of this atrocity is that this was available on the Sonic Mega Collection available across the board in the last generation.

Summary: Auto’s die niet nieuw zijn, zijn in twee categorieën in te delen; oud lijk en antiek. Op een oud lijk kijkt iedereen neer, maar een antieke auto, die nog veel ouder is, heeft juist bepaalde charmes. Met games is dit net zo. Een game van pakweg vijf jaar oud is op ieder vlak duidelijk verouderd en zul je niet meer zo snel spelen. Echte antieke games, uit de jaren ’80 of begin jaren ’90, kunnen echter gek genoeg nog steeds interessant zijn.
Pros: Veel klassiekers, Alle games zijn opgeleukt, Trophies
Cons: Was beter als downloadable collectie, Zitten we te wachten op oude games?
