Sonic Mega Collection Plus review (PS2)
20 September 2013
Excerpt: As a guy who loves his retro games, few things are more valuable to my collection than a large compilation. What better way to relive those glory days of the 8- and 16-bit systems than having a bunch of them on on disc that I can plug in whenever I feel like going back in time?
Excerpt: The retro scene has been getting some serious recognition of late. Commercial Atari, Intellivision and various arcade packages have been released at budget price recently, and the big guns finally seem to realise that there is money to be made from the days of yore.
Excerpt: Who'd have thought it? Sonic the Hedgehog, unashamedly one of the 'old guard' of computer game culture, enjoyed a stellar return to popular form in 2004. Spurred on by a new cartoon series and the critically derided Sonic Heroes (which topped the UK charts for months on end), it seemed that a...
Excerpt: I'm trying to figure out who Sonic Mega Collection Plus is for. Diehard Sonic The Hedgehog fans would already have all the great Genesis games in their possession, surely. And if they wanted a convenient way to play those greats, they could use emulation to back up their hard copies--I'm thinking...
Excerpt: The game consists of seven Sega Genesis games: Sonic 1- 3, Sonic & Knuckles, Sonic 3D, Sonic Spinball and Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine all in their entirety. The game also includes six Game Gear games from the Sonic world, some of these games are rather weird or just seem like novelties, but...
Conclusion: Whether you'll be playing Sonic Mega Collection Plus on a PS2 or on an Xbox, you'll be treated to emulation that's virtually indiscernible from the original games running on the original hardware.
Pros: Good collection of games, Perfect emulation, glitches and all, Games hold up, even today, Save state feature implemented, Comics collection in .
Cons: No Sonic CD, Sonic R, Sonic the Fighters, etc, Save state works slowly.
Summary: He pretty much started the whole Adventure RPG scrolling screen scene! He single handedly made consoles like the Mega Drive (or Genesis, whatever you want to call it) and the legendry SEGA Game Gear. Ask anyone what game stands out on either and we reckon 9 out of 10 times they will say Sonic!
Conclusion: Playing Sonic again felt just as great as it did when I fired it up all those years ago, everything just feels right about it! The gameplay is still fast, and it was fun remembering where all the hidden rings were, and some of the sections were still tougher than some modern platformers I’ve played.
Pros: It’s Sonic on PS2!, Loads of classic games to choose from., Easy interface.
Cons: Looks ugly nowadays., The games lack lasting appeal., Some of the games just “fillers”.
