Nice but not the best selection of Genesis games

swiftalbatross, Ebay

  • 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. While the presentation is nice on the PS3 with button configs, HD scaled-up graphics, and extra content like manuals and interviews; what really matters, the emulation, is not polished enough. From all the reviews I read, everyone indicated that the emulation was perfect.

A few classics, but too many aren't

  • 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. I picked this up cheap as I thought the other games may have been hidden gems, but sadly that's not the case.

Not worth the money

  • Summary: Don't bother. You can download an Megadrive emulator on your smart phone and play ALL Megadrive games for free. They haven't even included Eternal Champions on this compilation!

Excited before bought... not so much after.

  • 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... but after a short while you realize that those feelings are just ephemeral and this kind of game just don't cut it anymore.

Slightly dissapointing

  • 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.

SEGA Mega Drive: Ultimate Collection (PS3)

ajra21, amazon.co.uk

  • 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. i suspect that only the very occasional gamer will find this appealing after the first hour, as it does allow you to play a large number of games. all in all, probably worth the price ... just.

Great for a blast from the past

  • 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. The collection in it seems ok at first, but most of them you won't ever get round to playing before you realise some retro games are better off where they belong.
