Summary: Sega manages to pack just about every great Genesis game into one UMD. With games like Shinobi III, Ecco the Dolphin, Vectorman, Comix Zone, Sonic the Hedgehog and the three 16-bit Phantasy Star games, the Sega Genesis Collection is a must own no matter what type of gamer you are! This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on. However, that does not always apply to classic/retro games.
Conclusion: The 8-bit Sega Game Gear and Sega Master System games would be totally awesome on the PSP. This is a really great collection of games on the PSP and there is also a version of it on the PS2 for $20. It is sort of sad that a collection of 16-bit Genesis games was the release that I looked forward to on the PSP.
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.
