  1. Should be called the "Sega Mega Drive Really Good But Not Quite Ultimate Collection".
  2. All things considered and all the highs and lows of the Sega Mega Drive experience, Ultimate Collection is a good buy for any gamer old or new.
  3. With so many games here you do find yourself flitting from one game to the next, however even though it's enhanced, it's still all a bit old, perhaps Sega should begin to concentrate on this generation a little more instead of living in the past.
  4. Take Ultimate Collection for what it is – an inexpensive assortment of classic SEGA titles – and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better deal on the market.
  5. For what Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection lacks in quality, it at least partially makes up for by its sheer quantity of emulated games.
  6. This collection is a pretty decent compilation with some of the best titles the Mega Drive has seen. If you're one of those gamers that is still longing for the glory days of the 16 bit era then you shouldn't miss out on this title. If you're not, keep in mind that the games on this disc offer you nothing more than the games like they where back in the days. Meaning outdated graphics and squeaky noises. Something a real fan would die for.
  7. As good as some of the games in this package are, these golden memories come with a price tag to match.
  8. Why keep buying Genesis collections?

This a near perfect collection of the SegaThis collection shows just how deep the hedgehog bit into the plumber's butt during the 90s. This a near perfect collection of the Sega Genesis' library. I say near perfect cause this disc does have it's flaws. Having online co-op for the Streets of Rage games would have been stellar, also was anyone crying for Bonanza Bros. or Flicky? Probably not. I wish they would've included a Sega CD or 32X title to unlock through gameplay. I do have a feeling they probably could have put more on this DVD, but I guess somethings come down to whether or not you can obtain a game's rights. All in all a collection worth owning if you remember these games or if you want to know what all those channels on YouTube remember so fondly. Full Review »

    This game is truly the greatest deal in the world and the best video game collection up to date. If you don't like one game in the collection,This game is truly the greatest deal in the world and the best video game collection up to date. If you don't like one game in the collection, there's 48 other games in this collection to choose from from Streets of Rage to Sonic the Hedgehog to Shinobi III to Phantasy Star IV to Ecco the Dolphin. You can save mid-game whenever you want and pick up where you left off. At its current $20 price, that would be about .50 for each of these classic works of art. The only bad game in here is Sonic Spinball. Full Review »
