  • Summary: Sonic has appeared in many games in the last decade, and now you can relive seven of them from Sonic Mega Collection Plus. This compilation includes the first three Sonic the Hedgehog titles, plus Sonic & Knuckles, Sonic 3D Flickies' Island, Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball, and Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine. The Plus version also adds more content, such as illustrations and movies, to Sonic Mega Collection . Expand

  1. An absolute must have for people who liked them back then and if you never actually played them... well, I'll hold back. Just buy this collection.

    20 classic Sonic Team and Sega games perfectly emulated on the Xbox for $20; what's not to like?
  3. 80
    Despite its exclusions, though, Collection's large selection of titles for $19.99 is a tough thing not to recommend to anyone who calls himself a gamer. Even if a few of the games undeniably suck.
  4. While not a definitive collection of Sonic memorabilia and games, it is damn close and definitely the best available on any console.
  5. None of the games runs in full-screen mode on Xbox, while the GameCube versions are identical to the 16-bit originals. [Jan 2005, p.98]
  6. There's tons of bonus material on offer including comic covers and illustrations, and the option to save your game at any point is a godsend.
  7. It's quite hard to give a score to this collection. All the games are simply dated and don't offer anything to modern gamers. However, for the fans it's a trip down memory lane and the collection earns it's place in a collectors game collection. [May 2005, p.74]

    One of my favorite Xbox games since I was about 6 to 7, an extremely addictive game! If you are a Sonic the Hedgehog fan, this game's for you!!!!!!!!!

    Just the right amount of sonic games you need. Unlike gems collection as it throws all the crappy Game Gear games at you, mega collection gives you all the ones on the mega drive and also some from the game gear. There are also a few unlockable games which is cool. Expand

    It's great to have access to all these classic games on xbox. If only the Sonic games stood the test of time a little better. It's still a great package. Expand
