sonics ultimate genesis collection

sonics ultimate genesis collection is what you would expect if you haven't forgotten how far games have come since the early nineties. if you're like me then you did forget, until the words GAME OVER poppped up. all in all i got exactly what i expected and then the shine of nostalgia wore off a few days later. the trophies/acheivments really helped to motivate me to play many of the titles i would've otherwise skipped. one thing i missed in this compilation was some of the better games i remember playing on my genesis. there are a few better than average titles on this collection, like decap attack, sonic, and kid chamelon. i give this game a 5, and i say its a good way to spend a rainy weekend but it wont last much longer than that, given the other games available today.

It's exactly what the description is, no more no less. A bunch of classic sega games released directly to the PS3. It was fun to play sonic and golden axe again, but they are not touched up so be wary if you want anything other than the original.

A must have for sega fans. It will bring you back to the good old days.

For the ppl that cry "This game should have this game or that game cry cry cry boohoo boohoo boohoo". Like many game in the past dont you think they maybe just setting up to bring out Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection 2.

As for it should have better games. Well growing up i hated Altered Beast and guess what i still do so that game should not be on there.
My buddy i grew up with loved Altered Beast and he still does but he hated Sonic and still does so that game should not be on it.

The point is work with them ppl you cant have your cake and eat it to. Their tiring to please every one (even themselves). In a world of $60 a game $20s for more then one game even if you dont like them all i just cant see where you got room to cry.

If you missed the era or if you grew up in it you should check this out.
