Trip Down Memory Lane

by Anthony on 9/18/2011

This collection includes some of the best Sega Genesis games, in fact you get a massive 49 games! It covers a lot of different genres too; you have solid RPG's with the Phantasy Star series, action games like Streets of Rage which are great co-op, Sonic which is a classic series, and a few others. I'd definitely recommend this if you played the originals because they've been updated to 720p. For the price this is a crazy deal! Read More

Review If you're anything like me, then you're a sucker for compilations of games that take you back to your childhood and early gaming years. The memories of sitting in the living room during your first fight with Dr. Robotnick or pummeling baddies in Streets of Rage likely sticks with you to this day. Sega is ready to take you back to that simpler time with Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection, a compilation of over 40 games that will bring back all the joys and happiness from those gaming sessions left long ago...The first question asked when talking about a compilation of games is, "Are they any good?" That's a tough one since tastes are so subjective, but of the 49 games included on the disc, nearly all of them are at least well-known. Of course, you have every iteration of Sonic the Hedgehog to ever grace the Genesis, as well as three editions of Streets of Rage and Golden Axe. I don't know anyone who still wants to play Altered Beast, but I'm sure there's at least one person out there who still thinks it's the greatest game ever and will likely pick up the collection just to play it. What it ultimately comes down to is that nearly all the games on the disc are familiar, and if you ever missed out on high-profile Genesis titles like Ecco the Dolphin, Kid Chameleon or Vectorman, then here's your chance to make up for lost time...Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection doesn't sport fancy HD graphics and completely retooled surround sound audio, but it gives old-school gamers something they long for in a world that's increasingly focused on casual gaming: a trip back in time...Games normally don't make that kind of mark on us anymore, but nearly every game included in Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection does. If you remember the scream from the Sega TV ads or the days when Sonic wasn't saddled with two dozen friends and still had some attitude, you should really do yourself a favor and pick up this collection.

Quotes
Game Chronicles Simply put Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection may not be the ultimate or perfect collection but its damn near close.
IGN ...a slick package, a lot of unlockables, and 49 games...I can't recommend picking this one up enough.
Meristation ...ideal for all those lovers of retro-gaming. Many of this games are really valued today, and at a budget price, it's a great deal.
TheSixthAxis ...a cracking set of games, filled with fond memories...Brilliant stuff.
ZTGameDomain You will be hard pressed to find a better (legal) collection of Sega games in one place.
