Not what I expected
27 February 2014
Excerpt: Bought this game thinking it was going to be cute and entertaining for my kids and husband, it put me back to the 80's when I as a kid first had "Sega" it's kind of boring and obviously the graphics are terrible since it's supposed to be a compilation of the old Sega Genesis games. I wish I had realized that before purchasing. I would have invested in something much more modern and graphically up to date so my kids can enjoy.
Summary: People who played any of these games in the past, would love to see them again on playstation 3. However, when I got this collection, I had the thought that it would be the same games I played when I was a kid, yet with PS3 graphics & themes. It turned it out that the games are exact replicas of the old fashioned games. When getting used to playing a PS3 game, it would be "not so fun" to play a 1990 graphics game. I do not recommend this collection.
Summary: Thought the graphics were supposed to be upgraded, but it's PS1 graphics. I had Ecco the dolphing on PS2 and the graphics were decent. It's included in the genesis selections but the version is in 2d flat graphics and plays like an old Mario Bros or Pac Man game?? So NOT cool!! Don't waste your money, seems like they have taken a collection of old games and stripped them down to get them on 1 disc, only good thing is it's easy to win PS trophies.
Conclusion: I like nostalgia, really I do but all these games are so dated, I wouldn't mind if the games were true classics like Scramble, Defender, Pheonix or some classic platform games like Donkey Kong or Super Mario which I know all aren't Sega. The Sonic series are, ok, maybe worth a go but even then you get bored very quickly. If you do buy it here's how it will go, you start off thinking I'll start off with the earliest game, then you play....
Summary: SEGA Mega Drive: Ultimate Collection was released in 2009. It holds a collection of games, which were available on the SEGA Mega Drive, which have been brought onto the PS3. Since it was released I was interested in buying it. The idea of having around 40 games to play on one disc was appealing. It took me a while but eventually I spent a £20 Amazon voucher on it - which I regret.
