Good for most

Summary: The games are very much like the original as far as graphics and format go. I really like the original sonic games for genesis and I was hoping that this game would be exactly or close to the original format (and that's what this collection is). The only problem that I have with this game collection is that the controls don't seem as smooth as playing on the genesis - there seems to be a delay in response time from hitting a button.
Summary: Thought this would be a fun- always been a fan of Sonic and my 6 year old loves him. This "collection" doesnt even allow you to play all the games listed. The graphis are awful compared to Crash Bandicoot, Star Wars and Cars for the same system. Maybe because it was meant for Sega? I dont know- but dont waste your money.
Summary: This collection is a must have if your feeling abit nostalgic. It contains some of the best games of all time inparticular the four Mega Drive classics (Sonic 1, 2, 3 & Knuckles) and the fantastic Sonic & Knuckles lock-on mini games. You also get the Mega Drive versions of Dr Robotnick's Mean Bean Machine and Sonic Spinball and the dull Sonic 3D: Blast, the last Sonic game made for Sega's 16 bit console. This collection also includes a selection of rare Game Gear games.
Summary: Elemental old-school 2D platforming sprite-based nirvana. Bosses, rings, a meaningful score...anybody remember the last time a score actually meant something? You WILL care about your score on this baby- so much sprity Japanese goodness in one package- its challenging and interesting enough for adults, and cute and harmless enough for kids. Speed, colors, sprites, smooth controls- I've fully converted. I've seen the light. I renounce you Mario as a false and demonic god.
Summary: As a former Sonic the Hedgehog fanatic growing up on these games I went out first thing to get this for Xbox when I found out about it. Overall, I am not disappointed. I do have several, small complaints. The first would be the hidden games. It was kind of annoying to have to sit there and open/close each game somewhere around 20 to 30 times each to unlock the hidden games.
Summary: Its great to see this out on all of the major consoles, I fell bad for the Game Cube owners that don't get to play the Game Gear games that are on the Xbox and PS2 versions. If you grew up in "Nintendo" generation like I did this a definite must have, if only to take you back to simpler times when systems only had a d-pad and 2 or 3 buttons, and we couldn't save our games.
Summary: In 2002, Sonic Mega Collection was released for the Nintendo GameCube. It featured Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles, Sonic Spinball, Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, and the lackluster Sonic 3D Blast. It also included extra games such as Knuckles in Sonic 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Blue Sphere, Flicky, and Ristar. If you weren't gaming back in the Sega Genesis days, Sonic & Knuckles featured a lock-on technology.
Summary: It always does show that older games can relly be much more fun than highly visual games with overused graphics and outrageous detail sometimes. Largely, because of the influence classic games brought to the table. For Sega, nothing says that theory very well other than their legendary mascot, Sonic The Hedgehog. Even though Sega isn't making any new video game systems, they are still showcasing that the classic never ever dies.
Summary: This game is amazing, for only 20 bucks. The only downfall is that it doesn't feature any of the NEWER sonic games, such as sonic heroes or any of them like that, they should of maybe bumped up the price and bit and added a little more in there, but other then that its great. (Now that i come to think of it, sonic heros alone is 50$ so i guess they should make this game like $100 and have EVERY SINGLE DAMN SONIC GAME EVER MADE!
