Reviews and Problems with Sega Mega Drive: Ultimate Collection
Showing 1-10 of 10
Nice but not the best selection of Genesis games
12 July 2010
Summary: Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection is good for Genesis lovers who want a quick and simple reminder of their days, but on closer inspection, it seems Sega did not pay attention to the actual content.
Summary: Unfortunately I listened to the reviews on this. If you want nostalgia and pretty antiquated/grotty games then this is for you. The graphics are awful and the games have not been sized for modern viewing.
Summary: If you're of a certain generation who grew up playing the mega drive you might be tempted with this compilation game. However outside of the classics, Sonic 2, Streets of Rage 1 & 2, Shinobi 3 and Golden Axe there's not much to speak about. The rest are perhaps a little too unknown to me.
Summary: I did not own a Megadrive, but knew and was a big fan of several of the games and decided to give it a shot. At first, it is fun to start Golden Axe or Columns, all those arcade memories come into to mind... ah, those were the days...
Summary: Was really excited about recieving this game as was a massive gamer on the sega when I was younger. Unfortunately there was no street fighter. There were a few good games. Good to reminisce, but felt it was just a bit disappointing.
Excerpt: When I first saw this game(s), I thought great some birght spark has had the great idea of putting all my favourite sega games in one big bundle ! Great thought and it was only about £20 to buy at the time , which was a bonus. For a very reasonable price you get 40 gaming classics.
Summary: cool but short walk down memory lane. while the disc will make you smile as you are reminded of the games from long ago, you'll soon leave them behind for the modern graphics your PS3 is capable of utilising.
Conclusion: ...But only in a few games. Buying this to 'relive' your childhood unfortunately won't work, as some/most games have lost thier sparkle that had when they first came out and others you probably don't even recognise.
