Sega Mega Drive – The Ultimate Collection: Reviewed (Xbox 360/PS3)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: There’s no need to panic with regards to me going into an in-depth review of about 45 – 50 Mega Drive games. I mean everyone of an age old enough to be asked by acne ridden teenagers to go into a shop and buy them alcohol will no doubt remember Sonic the Hedgehog, Golden Axe, Streets of Rage and all...
Conclusion: Wow, remember the days when if you died at the final hurdle you had to start all over again? Well those days may be over, but never has the chance to relive them once again been so welcome.
Excerpt: Were you a SEGA or Nintendo kid? I don't know about you, but in my school it was all about SEGA. While I've heard stories of these legendary playground fights between rival SEGA and Nintendo fans (this was a time when fanboys stood and fought with honour and didn't hide behind internet avatars), my...

Conclusion: Ultimate Collection may well feel like an indolent ‘quantity over quality’ effort from SEGA; a game put together to serve no other purpose than act as a convenient and fulfilling amalgamation of our childhood memories.
Excerpt: Like many of the readers of this review, you probably grew up with the Sega Genesis – like I did. Most of my childhood memories are off the original Sonic games (back when it was still good) and Golden Axe, slowly eating away at my social life and it was the console which pulled me into gaming.
Summary: To be honest I cannot think of another game available on any console that offers as much value for money as " SEGA Mega Drive Ultimate Collection " especially as you consider that the game has been released at a relatively budget price.
Conclusion: With some exceptions and some inclusions that maybe should have been, this would have been perfect. That said, it is pretty close. There is a great selection of games here and a lot of replay value. For the value ($30 retail) it really can't be beat.
