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 the other major Grade A titles which adorn this rose tinted disc. What I DO intend to do is give a rough idea as to how good or bad a compilation of software this is.
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.
Conclusion: So many different games you can play and you even unlock more during the process. And the games you unlock are great. I am so happy I once bought this game and like I said, if you have not yet played Golden Axe Warrior please do yourself a favor and get this game.
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 experience was more who owned certain games rather than who owned a certain console.
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. But consequently, it’s hard not to fall in love with – even the weaker titles can induce a smile through mere nostalgia factor alone.
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. And when Sega originally brought some of my favourite childhood games to the Xbox Live Arcade, I jumped for joy.
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.
