Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection
Rating: 9.0, Rent (Keeper)

Long ago, I had Sonic 2 for Sega Genesis, a Sonic plush toy, and Sega Sports shoes... Seriously. I've purchased many Sega collections from PSP to Xbox, to Xbox 360 and PS3, but none were any fun or truly nostalgic. The Menu resembles a Genesis Console, and you can see the Cartridge Artwork for each game. The SFX, BMG and 2D graphics on a PS3 inspire a rare feeling of nostalgia.

I can say THIS is the definitive collection for Classic Sega Genesis Games.

The Review:

+TRUE Multiplayer: You can play w/Humans not just "usernames."
+In-Game Music: Play custom music via XMB during gameplay.
+In-Game Saves: You can actually save your progress .
+Trophies: There are many tricky, but fun Trophies.
+Fun: These games are grade A fun. Arcade, Shooters, RPG's.

-The 2D Bosses were brutal then, and brutal now, lol.

There are very few games that you can just play over and over again like these. If only the sonic series would just be put down.

I was pleased with the collection overall. Streets of Rage and Golden Axe were just as awesome as they were 15 years ago. Comix Zone was a lot harder then I remembered it to be.

It was easy to switch to different games. Some of the trophies were rather hard to get. You can rate your favorite games easily with your controller which made for less seeking once you had everything setup.

I thought the game collection was solid. There is a good bit of Sonic and plenty of side scrolling fighters like Streets of Rage and Golden Axe. Some games might be a bit horrid than what you remembered. Altered Beast comes to mind. :)

I hope we see a second collection. I'd really like to see Dune 2, Haunting and maybe some Sega CD games.

Overall, if you played any of these games I think you'd enjoy this collection. You might find some to be harder then what you remembered or really awful (Altered Beast, I'm looking at you).
