    This is easily one of the best retro collections ever. I owned a Sega Genesis many years back and this collections has most of my favorites. It's gret having Sonic the Hedgehog, Columns, Streets of Rage, Shinobi and Vectorman all in one collection. The controls work very well, which I am thankful for. I have played some retro collections where current controllers were not taken into account, but Sega has worked these games so the PS3 Dualshock 3 works perfectly with all games. The graphics may be dated, but the fun is not. Many of these games still hold up alongside the current generation of games and are still a lot of fun to play. It's also interesting to see how the graphics of the Genesis games evolved over time as technology improved. Play an earlier game like Alex Kidd or E-SWAT and then play Vectorman 1 or 2 to see what I mean. There are a few minor bugs in terms of sound and graphics in a very small number of areas, but nothing that will have any real effect on your enjoyment of the games. These were probably in the original games and may be fixed with future operating system upgrades. Also, the original Genesis cartridge for Sonic & Knuckles had a feature that let you play as Knuckles the Echidna in Sonic 2 and 3, but that is not in this collection for some reason (maybe it will be a future download). Despite these two minor issues, I would recommend this to anyone who ever had a Sega Genesis or who has an interest in retor gaming.

    A grat way to reminisce on the old days of gaming.

    Essential

    This collection is a great buy. I put it in, and instantly jumped right back into games that I remember from my childhood. Also I just turned 23, so some of these games are before my time. It feels good to discover them. Streets of Rage 2 is a great beat em up game. Phantasy Star IV is one of the first RPG's of large scale, even on the Sega Genesis. Sonic 2 was alwys fun, and even had terrific level design. Comix Zone was tons of fun to play with its inavative leve design, and gameplay mechanics. That is only a handful of the games that you will experience with this collection. I gave the challenge rating a 5 because believe it or not, some of these games were quite difficult. This collection also features every entire game, and has a save feature which many of them did not support back then. Simply put, this is a great way for older gamers to remember the games they enjoyed and for younger gamers to discover a forgotten age of gaming. Buy this...

    You have a collection of some of the greatest Sega Genesis games and being someone who came from a family that only owned Nintendo consoles. I missed out of a lot of great games and this catches me up on a lot of the great games I missed.

    I have enjoyed this with my 4 year old son. We especially enjoyed playing through the Sonic games together. Being able to save at any point makes these games much easier to beat.
