Excerpt: I owned a Sega Mega Drive as a child purely for my love of Sonic, so when this compilation came out on ps2 I was straight out to buy it. If your a fan of the traditional Sonic games then you will love this! It features all the megadrive classics + several 8bit Sonic games released for the gamegear. (Also released on Mastersystem). Upon buying this I traded in my Mega Drive console and all my games because I finally had everything I needed on one disk!
Pros: All the retro classics in one place, extra games, save game status, improved graphics and sound
Summary: I remember purchasing Sonic Mega Collection Plus for the PS2 from a GAME store for about £30. That was back in early 2005...the best part of a decade ago...WHERE has the time gone?! I mean it seems like only yesterday that I handed over the Queen's faces to one of the staff members so I could play this retro collection, and now the PS2 disc itself is retro. Scary!
Summary: As for still owning a Playstation 2 (as I still have most of my favourite games), I picked this up for cheep to my collection and I must say that it features most of the major sonic games including Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic and Knucles, Sonic Spinball, Sonic CD (which I quite like). I am not too much of a sonic fan, however my brother is and he plays it the most on his Playstation 2.
Summary: I have been going through a bit of a nostalgia trip recently and remembering the games of my youth is perhaps one of the most fun things to do. I have tried the PC version of this game which did not work, however this version runs brilliantly on the PS2. The three most obvious games anyone will be going for is Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic and Knuckles.
Excerpt: As a child brought up with Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario Bros, it was a no-brainer whether to get this game or not when Sega decided to release this title for the PS2. What you get on the disc is pretty much all of the Sonic games that were available many moons ago, most of them are very good games. For anyone who remembers Sonic and wants to relive those days, they should get this game for a trip down memory lane.
