SEGA Mega Drive: Ultimate Collection (PS3)
Advantages: Great Games the same way you remember them
Disadvantages: Poor Graphics by todays standards
This is a collection of old Sega Games from the Mega Drive. 40 ready playable and 9 games to unlock as you go. You can also unlock developer interviews by achieving certain trophies. The games that come with this are some of the best the mega drive had to offer as well including the 'Streets of Rage' collection, the 'Sonic the Hedgehog' collection, the 'Golden Axe' collection, Shinobi 3 and the Phantasy Star collection. Oh and who could forget that instant classic 'Columns'?
All of these games look feel and play the same as they did on the Mega Drive and for me that's a good thing. Yeah its 2D and the graphics in general look dated but it's the same fun you remember having as a child. I bought this game on the back of it being £20 and it was more than worth it for the hours of fun I received. You do get transported back to your childhood.
The trophies for this game are also fun, quite challenging (Try beating Doctor Robotnik in Mean Bean Machine) and provide you with a little path that will have you experiencing nearly all the games on here.
Lets face it if you loved the little start up on games when the Sega Badge popped up and it said "Seeeeggggaaaaaa!!!!" then its worth the money just for that. Yes if you don't have that nostalgic feeling and are somebody who came to games after the year 2000 then this will look dated and probably bore you to tears but for the rest of us it's a happy trip down memory to a simpler time when music was bad and the side scrolling beat em up was king.
The developer interviews you unlock are short and interesting and add to the experience. You can sort games by year, name, rating or genre.
I highly recommend this as a purchase for anyone who had a mega drive. Going back and playing streets of rage or Golden Axe and getting past the bits you couldnt as a child, it doesnt get better than that my friend.
