    Good fun in a nostalgic way, but younger gamers might not get what all the fuss is about.
  2. It’s a nice way of reliving games of yore and allows a new generation of gamers to rediscover some of the great games of the 16-bit era.
  3. Worthy of a look from nostalgic gamers from the 16-bit era as well as people who didn’t play these games the first time around.

    As an entire package, Sega Smash Pack is a letdown, especially in its presentation.
  5. It's a good thing "Ecco" is basically tolerable, it's the only game in this collection that keeps the entire thing from stinking.
  6. Cheat Code Central

    The biggest complaint is that the games suffer from slowdown, especially when the scrolling can't keep up to the speed of the character.

    Way back in 2002 I could see the point of this. In today's day and age, there are much better ways to play these 3 classics on a portable. IfWay back in 2002 I could see the point of this. In today's day and age, there are much better ways to play these 3 classics on a portable. If you insist on playing this version, just know:

    -The music in all three games is ear grating. Not only this, but the games are missing whole songs.
    -There will be a few graphical glitches. I haven't seen anything game-breaking, but there were a few oddities.
    -The AI in Golden Axe particularly is...off. The game feels much easier than the original.

    Despite all this, the games are still fun. I got my copy for less than a cup of coffee, so at similar price points I can easily recommend it (with the volume off).
