Excerpt: This review was originally published in Family Friendly Gaming. Sega Genesis Collection is the most recent title in the retro gaming compilation trend. The short story on this game collection is that it contains a large number of games (30 in all), many of which are truly worthy of the “classics” label they carry. And the collection comes at a welcome retail price to add to its appeal.
Excerpt: Sega Genesis Collection is a collection of, you guessed it, games from the Sega Genesis console. If you don't know what a Sega Genesis is, follow this link . Also, bless your dear heart. When you buy a collection of older games, you're usually looking to recreate the experience you had on the older system. This means you expect the graphics, sound, and all other elements to be perfectly preserved and served up just as they were back then.
Conclusion: The game also includes an extensive library, with the original box art (front and back) for each game, as well as promotional shots and a summary of the game's story. There's actually a good deal of information and some cool graphics that can be found in these libraries, to the point where you might spend more time looking at the information about the game rather than playing the game itself.
Conclusion: The Sega Genesis Collection is one of the most satisfying, well-put-together classic game compilations to date. That it's available for a budget price on the PlayStation 2 makes it all the more tempting, though being able to take these games with you anywhere makes the PSP version a great choice, too.
Pros: Includes a number of the Genesis' finest classics, generally spot-on emulation quality, solid menu system and support for different display settings, some great unlockable extras, featuring various arcade games, budget price.
Conclusion: There are only a few areas where things suffer here. First of all, some of the load times are a bit on the long side, especially between some menus. Second, the presentation and menus were clearly rushed for production. While the menu interaction works well, it’s not very stylish, and definitely indicates that it’s a budget title. Even the ten interviews included the compilation seem to be put together sloppily, and the interface is a little bland.
Summary: Sada legendárních her od firmy Sega. Čas hráčů počítačových her utíká strašně rychle. Pamatuji si časy, kdy jsem proháněl malého panáčka po obrazovce a usmíval se nadšením, jak že sem to zlikvidoval všechny mimozemšťany. Prakticky několik čtverečků vymazalo jiné čtverečky a podobné je to vlastně dodnes, pouze s rozdílem prezentace hry. Není na škodu si občas zavzpomínat u starších her a říct si tu kouzelnou větu: „Jo tenkrát, to byly hry, dneska už to není ono.
Pros: - zábava - dlouho vydrží - nostalgie
Cons: - zpracování je zastaralé - pro příležitostné hráče to rozhodně není
