    This unit was a great remake of the classic arcade console Sega Genesis, they did an outstanding job on the mini console and the games that were added to the mini console were true classics, a great throwback to yesteryears.

    My favorite childhood console has returns. It comes with everything thing you need. 2 original 3 button controllers, HDM cable, AC power cable, & 42 games! The user interface is clean and clear. You can customize the list of games from ABC order, to release dates, to number of players. The list is amazing. Though it will leave a few of your favorites. For me I’m wondering where’s Sonic 3 & Mortal Kombat with the blood (A,B,A,C,A,B,B code). The game allows you to save 4 slots per game title just by pressing the reset button on the mini console. The volume slider doesn’t work, but it does move, the cartridge opens, but doesn’t play physical cartridges. There’s a emulator inside just like the mini versions of the NES & SNES. I’m surprised at a few of the licenses that Sega was able to get such as the classic Mickey Mouse Illusion titles. For a couple of the games such as Eternal Champions & Street Fighter II Champion Edition you’ll want to buy the licensed 6 button controller that Best Buy is selling. It was released several years into the Sega Genesis long life span when fighting games started to release for the console. It’s worth it. The 6 button & 3 button controllers are as I remember as a child. If you’re a fan of video games this is a must mini console. Thank God Sega did it themselves this time and didn’t license the Genesis out to a third party. How we must cross our fingers for a Sega Saturn mini & Sega Dreamcast mini.

    Set up

    Sega did a great job with this mini system. It has 42 games and two controllers. While I agree with other people they could have added a few different titles this is still an amazing system and a fun blast from the past. Very easy to set up and use and 100% nostalgia feel to it..

    Great mini system. A great variety of games. Only issue is that it only comes with 3 button controllers but you really need a 6 button one for Eternal Champions & Street Fighter. So you’ll have to shell out another $20 for one.

    After the train wreck Sony PS1 mini release I was skeptical about buying the Sega Genesis mini console. Man, was I wrong! This little Genesis replica is perfect in every way! From the incredible detail to the top shelf game selection! Sega also threw in the Japanese versions of some amazing games never before released in the USA. (Just choose Japanese as the language of choice on the home screen). The quality conversion of the games to HDMI is amazing. Playing these classics on a 65” 4K TV “edge-to-edge” is an experience every game fan young and especially old should experience! Also, take note Sony, Sega even included a power adapter! What a novel idea! So don’t hesitate, buy now because when Black Friday comes these little gems will be gone!

    A great mini console that really takes back to the 90’s. The visuals and audio are top notch and very high quality emulation. There might very little to no latency, hardly anything noticeable to the naked eye. As far as game choice, it has most of the obvious selection, but it also has some great obscure titles like Alysia Dragoon and some odd choices like Virtual Fighter 2, the Saturn version completely tops the Genesis port. Also, some strange omissions like Streets of Rage 1. In the end, I can’t complain much, because in my opinion, it’s one the best mini consoles out there. I would also recommend picking up a 6-button controller from 8bitdo.

    The Genesis Mini is a plug and play system loaded with 42 Classic Genesis games. There are a few rare games in the system what are unexpected like the Genesis version of Tetris. There are two ports on the back, one for power, one for HDMI. The controller is a faithful reproduction of the classic 3 button Sega Controller. A 6 button controller can be purchased separately for playing games like Street Fighter II. The emulation is great as is the UI handled by M2. The Genesis itself is a recreation of the original hardware down to the design of the system with the same parts that remove for attachments though they do nothing functionally. I would highly recommend this system to any gamer who grew up playing Sega.

    Majority of the games i love are on this system. I wish they would have added a few more though. The console brought a smile to my face when i opened it. I did buy the 6-button controller which i enjoy better than the 3-button controller that it comes with. Personally, this is the best of the mini systems that's out there (including the Nintendo Mini and SNES Mini, which i own both as well. I did not bother buying the PlayStation Mini due to all the issues it has). Hopefully all the new mini systems that will come out will look at the SEGA Genesis as a model to be based upon. The only negative is the price. It's ok, but would be better if it costs around $60 or less.

    Bought it cause i had this very model 1 unit when i was a kid. I played through Sonic when i picked this up and it's pretty good. Better than the Atgames Genesis by a mile. Some rare games are on here also and unless you wanna over pay on ebay this is the next best option for a bunch of games at a cheaper price. Not a fan of the retro scalpers on other auction sites so i try to buy classic collection games for the modern systems when i can. This is a excellent mini system to be able to play some amazing games.

    I remember it like yesterday! Christmas morning of 1993... I received a Sega Genesis with Sonic 1 & Sonic 2. I played this console for hours upon hours! I have so many great memories of playing this console growing up. The Genesis classic recaptures most of what made the console great! The game selection is wonderful and emulation quality is excellent. I am so happy that they included 3rd party games like Contra, Castlevania, Road Rash, Earthworm Jim... The only complaint that I have is no Mortal Kombat 2. Overall I highly recommend!!!! It's every bit as good as the SNES classic.

    I grew up as a Sega Kid during the "Console Wars", so I was pretty excited about this release. It's been a blast playing all these games I played as a kid. It's also fun seeing my kids play the games I played when I was their age. Sega did a great job with this release. If you're a Sega fan this is a must buy. This was also my first time pre-ordering something from Best Buy and it was a great experience. Very timely with their email communication and I got the Sega on the day of release. Very happy with the purchase and with Best Buy.

    Move over, Nintendo; you have been dethroned as the king of the mini consoles! Sega really delivered the goods with this great mini, including a whopping 42 games, almost none of which are duds (though Ghouls n Ghosts, Virtual Fighter 2, and Eternal Champions are admittedly poopy). The only problem is that you'll need a couple of six-button controllers (another $15 each) if you wanna throw down on Street Fighter II SCE. All-in-all, a fantastic console. I can't wait for the hack, so I can put my Sega CD and 32X games on it!

    I really love how these game manufacturers are beginning to offer an upgraded version of the classic consoles. This SEGA Genesis Mini is really one for the books. I love that many of the older games I used to play as a kid can now be played on my HDTV's. Toe Jam and Earl and Earthworm Jim were a must! I love that the interface is straight to the point and all the games are listed on however order you wish for them to be. Only thing I may gripe about is the length of the controller, definitely longer than the NES Mini but could still get improved.

    I have the retro SNES console and ordered this to compliment it. I think they pulled off the reboot well, and the preorder process worked great. I received mine the day it was released which was pretty cool.

    After countless at games sega products finally there’s something good with sega. I grew up with the genesis so it’s nice to see something of quality for once with them. Only bad thing is I would’ve chosen better games. Mortal kombat? Fatal fury? Sonic and knuckles?

    The games play wonderfully and I’ve encountered no issues at all. The game selection is phenomenal, as well. Getting Castlevania: Bloodlines and The Wiley Wars is a major boon to the system. The save states are very easy and it’s great to be able to just resume your game later so easily. As a longtime Genesis fan, this system is nearly perfect.

    This is a great collection of many iconic Genesis games. A must have for fans. Also so otherwise ultra rare games are legally obtainable on this. Unlike AT games systems they get the emulation done right on this. So the sound wont be tinny or out of sync. One downside is it came with 3 button controllers. Only one game really needs the a 6 button controller and thats street fighter. But many usb controllers work well.

    I loved the NES and SNES classics, and this is up to that quality and even surpasses them in some ways. The unique collection of games is nice as well, having titles that didn't appear on previous Sega collections anywhere (The Disney games and Wily Wars in particular stood out to me). There are some minor emulation issues, but none of them are enough to not whole heartedly recommend this if you're a Sega fan.
