    Great compilation of games with a few minor issues

    I am a huge fan of the Sega Genesis and was excited to check this compilation out. While alot of the games themselves are classics, some of the issues I had were as follows: Imperfect Sound Emulation: While the games run pretty well for the most part, some of the sound emulation is off. Most of it is fine. But if you've played these games on the original platform you'll notice things like when sonic hits the goal sign in sonic 1, it sounds off. Or when a female enemy dies in Streets Of Rage 3. Then you have random time when the music will stutter for a second. It's rare but very distracting. Noticeable Omissions: Obviously not all notable games from the genesis make it on here, but it's glaringly missing Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles. It doesn't make sense at all. Sonic Spinball is here of all games. If it weren't for those issues this would have been a 5 star rating. The games are still great. It's a shame those minor issues hold up an otherwise great collection.

    Good for casual fans, terrible for hardcore ones.

    The selection of games is solid overall for a casual Genesis fan or maybe someone new getting into retro games, but the spotty emulation (especially with sound), random glitches including glitched Achievements, laggy online play, lack of bonus unlockables, make it hard to recommend when the PS3/360 Ultimate Genesis Collection did this so much better. Nice to see the Treasure games (Alien Soldier, Gunstar Heroes, Light Crusader) so that alone may be enough to buy it for some. It's still solid if you only have an Xbox One or PS4, but can't help but feel a bit disappointed.

    5 of my all time favorite games ever created on one disc...amazing. Being able to scale up the graphics and enlarge the screen to perfectly fit my 70" 4K HDTV = perfection. Shining Force 1 & 2 and Phantasy Star 2-4 were worth the price of purchase alone, but the added dozens more titles as well to really make this a deal impossible to pass up. The ability to save your game anywhere and at anytime gives you the feeling of being a diety, and something my teenage self would argue was magic or witchcraft. For $29.99 it's a steal.

    This has some of my favorites games from back in high school & shortly there after. And playing with my 7 and 8 year old is a blast. They love these "older" games. And having 50 to choose from in one game is great. Old games on todays TVs and controllers are great. Oh, and when little ones are playing, the rewind feature is pretty cool. Kids characters dies, rewind about 20 seconds and try something different. Wish they had that 25 years ago.

    Emulation Issues

    The collection is alright - a lot of filler for being called a “classic” collection. But not necessarily bad. However, sound and emulation issues are abound, at least in my copy - lag is understandable if annoying in modern titles pushed to the limit on a console; but lag on games that originally ran on hardware that was discountined over 20 years ago? On a console in 2018? This smells of a lazy job with poor optimization.

    Instead of buying a new “classics system that’s limited in so many ways I bought this and saved a lot of money and the game selection/music/transfer is very good and it’s like being able to play all my old Sega games w/out all the hassle. You only have so many hdmi, save yourself the trouble unless you wanna get nostalgic.

    This game has a very retro feel to it. If you liked some of the old Sega Classic games, then this is for you. My grandson was playing Sonic on my wife's phone and this made it an easy purchase. I introduced him to the video game world on a larger screen and he loves it. The games are pretty close to the original and if you like some of the old classics, then this is for you!!

    Bought this game to try to relive my life through vicarious youth..suffice it to say I’m not terribly impressed with it. Frankly the only decent games seem to be the Sonic games, or maybe that’s just because I’m too old to be playing the others that I feel that way haha. Great thing is that you can save progress now though unlike when playing the original versions!

    Good Collection Bad Emulation

    The games in the collection are pretty good, just missing a few classic but overall good. The biggest issue here is that aside from not every game having achievements (only some and dumb ones at that) some of the emulations are trash. Mainly sound issues which is unacceptable. Can still have fun playing some of the game online with friends but I am disappointed.

    Love the old games on this but the difference in graphics of the original games and the Xbox one platform makes it very difficult to play. The game sticks & the controller doesn’t work well. If this was done to work on the current console, it would be great. As is, not so much.

    If you loved the Sega Genesis era, then you must pick up this game. Its a lot of fun and it comes with some easy achievements to get. I do not understand why Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles were not included, but its not the end of the world. You will not be disappointed if you are a fan of Sega Genesis.

    This was fun with a really nice presentation of an 80's style room with cartridges piled up. I gave it a 4 because it would have been amazing to have the ability to add more comes or just come with more games in general.

    It’s so cool to be able to go back and play the Genesis games that I remember and loved so much, but this collection also shows how far we’ve come since. Now I want updated versions of games like Altered Beast.

    They added Toe Jam and Earl and subtracted some Sonic games and the Ecco The Dolphin releases. Other than that is it pretty much the same games that are available on the Sonic Ultimate Genesis Collection on 360 and PS3. Wait for a price drop before picking this one up.

    I have always loved Sega. I had both an SNES and Genesis growing up and there were a lot of games I loved on the Genesis over the SNES. This is a great collection of most of the classic games from the Genesis. It is worth picking up since it is priced well.

    I wish it had some arcade versions like the compilation on the 360, but this is great for what it is - a compilation of Sega Genesis games. Many are still a lot of fun to play. If you plan to do multiplayer, use couch co-op, online isn't great.

    Game is absolutely amazing. Had a great time going back to my youth. Those were the good old days. Playing these games with my big brother when we were young allowed me to re-live some great memories from my life. Absolutely amazing and very fun!

    Over 50 Genesis classics............basically, if you missed this generation, you can buy this disc and catch up on everything you missed. It also beats the need to purchase a miniature console or one of these inferior flashback systems.

    It's great having so many of the classic Sega Genesis games available in one place on Xbox one. The graphics don't always up convert well, but the game play and nostalgia definitely still translate.
