In 2002, Sonic Mega Collection was released for the Nintendo GameCube. It featured Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles, Sonic Spinball, Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, and the lackluster Sonic 3D Blast. It also included extra games such as Knuckles in Sonic 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Blue Sphere, Flicky, and Ristar.

If you weren't gaming back in the Sega Genesis days, Sonic & Knuckles featured a lock-on technology. If you plugged Sonic 2 into Sonic & Knuckles, and put Sonic & Knuckles into the Genesis, you could play as Knuckles in Sonic 2. If you did the same thing using Sonic 3 instead, you could play Sonic 3 with Knuckles and play the two games as if they were one big game. If you plugged any other game into Sonic & Knuckles, you would get Blue Sphere, a game compiled of chaos emerald levels like those in Sonic 3.

Now, the X-Box and PS2 have also gotten similar treatment with Sonic Mega Collection Plus. Sonic Mega Collection Plus includes all the previous games that were included in Sonic Mega Collection for GameCube, and some additional games. This package also includes 6 Game Gear Sonic games including Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Chaos, Sonic Drift, Sonic Labyrinth, Sonic Blast, and Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine. The Game Gear titles are playable right off, but the lock-on Genesis Sonic games as well as Flicky and Ristar must be unlocked. There are two additional games to unlock as well. These games are Comix Zone and The Ooze.

The collection also features some nifty extras like comic book scans, movies from Sonic Heroes, other illustrations, and a complete set of instruction manuals for the games on this collection. Another feature added to the game is the ability to save anywhere on any game.

It always does show that older games can relly be much more fun than highly visual games with overused graphics and outrageous detail sometimes. Largely, because of the influence classic games brought to the table. For Sega, nothing says that theory very well other than their legendary mascot, Sonic The Hedgehog. Even though Sega isn't making any new video game systems, they are still showcasing that the classic never ever dies. In 2002, Sega unveiled the Sonic Mega Collection for the Nintendo Gamecube. The move proved to be a success and one of Nintendo's most popular video games for their Gamecube. Now, the collection has expanded, and finally landed on the Xbox game system.

The Sonic Mega Collection Plus is a collection of 7 legandary Sonic series games from the classic Genesis system era, and 6 games from Sega's handheld Game Gear era as well. The games here all have been reissued very well here, and the games are just like they are new here. All the classics have been restored graciously including Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles, and Sonic 3D Blast. The games here are just as fast, furious and comelling here, without a single flaw missing. The collection also includes Game Gear versions of Sonic 1 & 2, as well as Game Gear classics like the compelling and challenging Sonic Chaos, Sonic Triple Trouble, and the Mario Kart like themed racing game Sonic Drift 2. The collection also includes copies of The Sonic comic collection series here from the mid 90's, as well as extra unlockable games like Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Knuckles In Sonic 2, Ristar and Flicky, a classic from Sega's 1980's master system.

All in all, Sonic Mega Collection Plus is a very exciting multipack of some of the greatest games from a definitive landmark hedgehog.

This collection includes some of the best Sonic games (Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Chaos), as well as some of the worst (Sonic Drift, 3D Blast). Overall, for the price, this is a great collection and lots of fun, especially for kids who maybe haven't played the older games. Some of them hold up real well and the Xbox adaptation works well in most cases. At this price, it's a good purchase, given how few kid-friendly games Xbox has.

As a former Sonic the Hedgehog fanatic growing up on these games I went out first thing to get this for Xbox when I found out about it. Overall, I am not disappointed. I do have several, small complaints.

The first would be the hidden games. It was kind of annoying to have to sit there and open/close each game somewhere around 20 to 30 times each to unlock the hidden games. Now I don't really care for Ooze or Comix Zone, and I don't even think Ristar should be included as its a Sonic collection, and many Sonic games were omitted from this collection in favor of these other Sega games. However, it was frustrating to have to unlock Sonic 3 & knuckles, which is basically the only way to play sonic 3 OR sonic and knuckles (at least ever since they've both been out.)

The other main problem I have with it, which I've already touched on a bit, is that some of the sonic games are missing. Now I'll admit that I'm a little bit of a completionist, but even then, would it have hurt to add Sonic CD, Sonic Triple Trouble, or even some of the offshoot games with Sonic characters like Knuckles Chaotix, etc. I mean honestly, don't tell me there wasn't space for the extra games when they can manage to fit a monument to video gaming like Halo on a single disc.

Sonic CD and Triple Trouble especially would be important since they introduce important characters that have been used in games and the comics since. Amy has been used extensively in more recent sonic adventure and sonic advance games and mecha sonic was an important character in the comics. Nack didn't get a lot of development as a character but it could have been a great start, and even though it wasn't, Triple Trouble was still probably the least shallow game gear sonic game, as well as the most playable.
