Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection

I am so happy that I discovered this collection! I think that this is the perfect game that every member of the family can enjoy. It has dozens of old style arcade games that I used to actually play as a child. They bring back old memories and are simple enough for my five year old to master (even Ninja Turtles, which he is SO into right now). What's even better is you don't have to insert a quarter every time you die. There are also a lot of the original Sonic games, which of course are challenging yet simple, and very classic. To me it's a refreshing step back from the dizzy 3D mobility of our more modern games. I feel that with this game I can share a piece of my childhood with my kids without spending a fortune or having to look for anything. I highly recommend this game to everyone, I've had this game for months now and we are still having fun with it. And if you've never played video games before and want to start then you should tell GAMEFLY to send you this one.

I'm kinda happy that Sega finally stepped it up and put out a ultimate collection that wasnt missing any great games from the Gensis era. When I first saw this game i was thinking "Oh great here we go again" but as I looked more into it and seeing they had FINALLY put out a release of Streets of Rage on a collection disc, now I dont have to download it on the Wii Virtual Console or put my genesis back in. And how can you not love having all the sonic games in one disc as well as Golden Axe?

If you are a huge fan of the sega genesis era, this game is for you. Or if you want it for just memories, its fun for that too, show your kids your gaming era!

Highly Recommended.

When I first saw this game I really wanted to play it because for everyone that grew up with a Genesis and played games such as Streets of Rage, Vectorman or of course any of the Sonic games they like playing these games to remind them of the good old "simple" days of gaming. After getting the game and playing it I really enjoyed playing all of the Sonic games and the Streets of Rage trilogy...after playing it for a solid day I decided to buy it and returned the game the next day. For any gamerscore freaks this game has easy achievements I got 400 gamerscore in about a day not even trying to get them.
