Rated 9 out of 10 by ILikeIt A Great Collection of Games
This is one fantastic collection of Sega games. I've purchased this disc over two years ago and continue to play this title.
All games are easy to access from the main menu. Titles ranging from great classic RPGs like Phantasy Star and Shining Force to action platfomers like Vectorman, there is a game here for anyone who enjoys retro games.
When in gameplay, the screen is formatted to your screen so that graphics don't pixelate. Addittionally, you can save any game at anytime during play and come back to it later. As a bonus, there is additional content, including great retro Sega arcade games, that can be unlocked as you progress in select titles.
Graphics, sound and controls are all well done and true to their time. In every game I've played, I have never struggled with playablility due to some error in controller translation or issues with display. I've even rated this game highly for it's faithfullness to the originals.
If you've considered this title, stop considering, just buy it and enjoy!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Ultimate Sonic Fan2221 Amazing!!!!
I just bought this game, and I am WOW'ed. I remember all the old genesis games. Well, I only have about 10. But this has so many awesome games in it, including the great classic sonic games, all remastered, and the sound quality is just great. I would probably give this 100/10, its so great. I can't go any higher then 10 though. My full review: Well, first of all going into the challenge, it is great, I mean you can't beat a good old fashion sega genesis game! The controls are EXCELLENT, in my opinion. Its great controls, I can't imagine how bad it would be on a system like Wii, I'm glad they chose to only put it on PlayStation 3 and the xbox 360. The graphics and animation are pretty much the same as the challenge. I love the interface and menu greatly too. The Length is a very long while, because there's so many genesis games on it! The Sound quality is great, its completely remastered. and the storyline is just as great as the games on genesis. 10/10
Rated 10 out of 10 by Triple J welcome back sega!
This game is a must own for anyone who grew up with a Sega Genesis! It has a ton of the titles that were a pretty big deal during the time. The graphics have been remastered as well as the sound and the fact that you can save a game at any point of play is helpful since the save spots on most of these games was sort of few and far between. The menu has a marking system so you can mark your favorites (which could be tricky considering there is about 30 titles) and they also added achievements that are specific to each title. Who doesn't want to re-live the glory days of slashing your way through Golden Axe or Shinobi 3 or even the sonic games all while your mom yelled at you to clean up your room? or maybe some of you are still there. Either way this game is well worth the money!..........only downfall.........no Earthworm Jim.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Picky Gamer A must have for us old timers!
This is the best selection of old games. I grew up playing all these games i was a Sega Genesis fan didn't like it's competitor Super Nintendo except for Super Mario World and the few other good titles on it. This game is great, but it makes me feel old lol. I see the dates when they game was made and I actually bought that one back in 1989 like aww man I'm old. There is too many good titles on this to name them all, but here is a few of my favorites....Sonic 1, 2, 3, and Sonic and Knuckles, Altered Beast, De-Cap Attack, Shinobi III, Streets of rage 1,2,3, Golden Axe 1,2,3, and there is a lot more too many to remember. You can't mention the price but i got it out the sale bin and was real cheap would have paid alot more for it worth the money! If you are younger and never played these you might not like it. So i will recommend it to everyone, it is what it is, if you never played these before or even heard of them you might not like it. I want to add this before I'm done it's a great family game a lot of co-op games my son is 3 and can play the Sonic games and my g/f hates video games, but likes to play co-op with me because they are simple.

Rated 10 out of 10 by The Reticent A must have for fans of Classic Games
Let me just say for those of you that enjoyed the Genesis or have never played a Genesis and are looking for a great collection of games this is definitely worth checking out. I grew up during the 16 bit era and these games have passed the test of time. The price alone is worth it. You get 40 games that will bring back memories of what challenging gaming was (limited continues and lives) also you'll get to just have old fashioned fun. There is something for everyone on this disc. This collection also has something for gamers that want to play old school RPGs. The Phantasy Star series is something that every RPG fan should play. The games are long, have a good story line and for their time have some of the best combat animations you'll see. Also, its nice to be able to save where ever you happen to be, no more backtracking 2 hours because you forgot to save the game or couldn't get to a town (battery back-up be damned). However, be warned you will have to grind for money and levels if you want to progress at all. The enemies are not scaled your level.You'll also be able to play some original master system games, which are worth just to see some games from the early days of video games and stand up arcade cabinets. Overall, I would say for $***** you can't go wrong.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Thekinkajou Amazing Deals
I have to recommend this game to the highest extent due to the shear amount of content. A good chunk of these are extreamly fun and a few, like shining force and phantasy stars, are great games that will last many hours. If you try to beat every game on this it is easily at least 600 hours (my estimite). I thought classic games on download services like virtual console were good deals (they might still be) but this is mindblowing. The only people who won't like this are gamers who aren't willing to try something new. I'm 17 and was 15 when I bought this and I don't regret it because I can give classics a chance. So try this game out.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Zeth1212 This Game Sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This game is terrible. It is probably the worst game Ive ever played and Ive played a lot of games. This game is only for people who were alive when the sega genesis was around or people that have no idea what a good game is. For any body other than those people it will most likely have no appeal. DONT BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by kelinja23 Makes Me Remember The Good Old Days Of Sega!!!
I know these graphics cant compare to games now and days, but back for its day, these gragics were amazing! I grew up playing this game! I own this game for the XBox 360 and I must say it was one of my best purchases EVER in gaming. I also love the classic music! It gets stuck in my head all the time lol! GREAT GAME! EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A CHANCE TO PLAY IT!!!!
Rated 9 out of 10 by quigonntom FINALLY...SHINING FORCE!!!!!
if you are a fan of the "shining" series, this is the disk for you. it has both Shining Force 1 and Shining Force 2 available for play. It also has Shining in the Darkness. So if you are a big fan of these games and have pulled out all of your hair trying to find a used cartridge out there, get this disk. now lets hope for a Sega Saturn Collection lol.
