Not as ultimate as the title implies.

Many compilations of these Genesis titles have been put out on the PS1 and PS2. Frankly, I can think of a dozen other titles that for some reason miss the list when they put the game together (Toe Jam and Earl? Sword of Vermilion? Or X-Men?) Who really cares about Golden Axe 3 or a lame spin off on the once very cool Game Gear. Anyone else tired of playing Altered Beast and Sonic The Hedgehog? I got nothing against these classic games mind you, but when you come out with an Ultimate collection, you expect a little more variation. And that's the key to these compilations. Do we give them the same old stuff as before or do we change things up a bit. Personally speaking, I would have chosen the latter as I can't really see this game being a top seller the way it is. I did like the inclusion of the Streets of Rage games, but time has not been kind to them. The games themselves look and play exactly as they did on the Genesis. When you meet certain criteria on some games, you unlock a bonus. Some bonuses include arcade versions and other classic games like Space Harrier. Lots of interviews with some of the people who made these games are also included in the bonus section. The main menu layout includes a brief history of the game and artwork. Really, only for die hard fans of these games. Otherwise, don't waste your money.

Was pumped when I first saw this but wasn't happy with it. I think there should have been a lot more games to play. I know that they could have fit lot more on the disk. I wish I could say something good about it but I can't I would stay away from this one unless you are a hard core sonic fan.

Got bored real quick after playing just a few games. Guess my taste in games has matured cus I use to love playing some of these titles. Worth renting but wouldn't buy this.
