Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection Review


Is it worth it to relive your childhood?

I guess my final word is this is a solid release from Sega. But they release these collections every few years and nothing stands out from the last one or the one before that. Though I enjoyed playing some of these because they brought me back to my...

Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection


One of the best collections of classic games ever conceived. When I first heard about Sonics Ultimate Genesis Collection, it wasn't exactly on my radar. I just figured it would...

40+ games at $30 ; Great trip down memory lane ; Very Humbling ; Some cool unlockables

These games are TOUGH ; No online support? Why

Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection Review


We take a closer look at SEGA's release of Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection. Is the nostalgic title worthwhile to pickup?

Obviously, this is not for the Gears of War hardcore, but it is an amazing collection of one of the best times for gaming.

Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection- PS3


Sega has an amazing legacy and a library of fantastic, cherished franchises that remain among the most memorable experiences in gaming history. Then we get something like Shadow the Hedgehog, and...

Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection Review


Compilations of classic console and arcades have become a genre of their own. Everyone from Atari to Activision has been making good money re-releasing their oldies, although it seems that Nintendo has made the best deal out of it by selling single...

Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection shines amongst some of the disappointing classic game compilations we've seen over the years (I'm looking at you, SNK Arcade Classics). Some of the game choices on this list are going to feel a little strange, seeing...

Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection - Review


As technology progresses, our ability to reconnect to the things we have loved and lost becomes easier. Friends and families are only a phone call away, our favorite songs can be downloaded for a dollar or less, and fifty retro games from our...

In battle, the dark, gritty environments and some awkward camera angles can make it tough to see exactly what is happening, and the limited number of finishing moves leaves you bored of them after the first couple of levels. It will be interesting to...

Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection


The title says it all.

Other than the aforementioned Sonic and Knuckles lock-on weirdness, the only other complaint about the collection is the user interface. I've seen more functional homebrew emulator front-ends a decade ago. Even with 1280x720 pixels to work with, the...

Ultimate Indeed


Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection is, true to its title, the single best compilation we've ever seen. Find out why inside.

The definitive assembly of some of the Genesis' best games. Yes, there could always be more (and there likely will be), but what's here is absolutely fantastic. If you have any love for some of the best games of the early-to-mid 90s, you'll grab this.

SEGA Mega Drive Ultimate Collection


Nostalgia can be a funny thing. There isn't a person out there who hasn't taken time to remember summers as a kid, hanging out with friends in high school, partying at college or watching their children grow up (depending on your age). It's nice to...

With some exceptions and some inclusions that maybe should have been, this would have been perfect. That said, it is pretty close. There is a great selection of games here and a lot of replay value. For the value ($30 retail) it really can't be beat....

Review: Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection


If there is one thing I never was, it was a Sega fanboy. As a matter of fact, I was quite the opposite. While every so often I would get a chance to play on a Sega Genesis, I never owned the system. However, I always stood in awe of the ability of...
