Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection
10 January 2013
Conclusion: When it comes to collections, Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection is one of the best collections to ever be released.

In fact, the games are actually made better by the fact progress can be saved and, from all the games I’ve played, each and every one completely matches my memory of how the original played. Streets of Rage, Phantasy Star, Sonic the Hedgehog, Golden Axe, Vectorman, and Ecco the Dolphin; those series alone, plus spin-offs like Dr.
