The Sonic Mega Collection, is a collection of seven great Sonic games from the Genesis days: Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, Sonic Spinball, Sonic 3D Blast, Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, and Sonic & Knuckles, as well as 5 hidden games to add on. The games from those 2D days were just completely outrageous and still filled with fast speeds and excitement. The games still remain as addictive as they did then, but a little more. The collection also includes 5 hidden games: Flicky, Blue Sphere, Rishtar, as well as the 2 lock-on games that were added on to Sonic & Knuckles, that put Knuckles into the game, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and Knuckles in Sonic 2.
The games were each remastered beautifully, without any flaws or detail missing from the Genesis days. The game also includes some extras as well, including the old Sonic comics that were issued from the mid 90's, well over 300 issues of them. Not only that, you see some trailers from clips from different games including Sonic CD, which was overlooked for this collection, as well as a video about the making of Sonic The Hedgehog.Read more ›
My only two complaints are pretty minor. First, the Gamecube control pad isn't the greatest for games that need digital directional control. The d-pad is small and kind of positioned strangely. It works fine, and actually the analog stick feels okay for these games too, but for these games it will never feel quite as good as a controller with a more "normal" d-pad. Secondly, this is theoretically a compilation of older Sonic games, but it's missing by far the best game in the series-Sonic CD. It's strange that Sega would include only marginally related titles like Bean Machine and Spinball, but drop one of their best platformers ever.
Still, most of these games have stood the test of time well (most of them are far superior to Sega's somewhat flaky Sonic Adventure games). The first three Sonic games plus Sonic & Knuckles still look pretty great, and even after a decade, there's nothing else that plays quite like them. This collection is a great deal if you don't already own most of these games.
The title itself tells you these are exclusively games from Sonic's Genesis days (Known as the "Megadrive" in Japan... "Mega Collection"... get it?) And contains the following games:
Sonic The Hedgehog - Sonic is out to defeat Dr. Robotnik from turning all his animal friends into robots.
Sonic The Hedgehog 2 - Sonic and his new pal Tails set out to defeat Dr. Robotnik once again, in this excellent sequel.
Sonic The Hedgehog 3 - The first Sonic game to feature a save feature (and the ONLY game on this disc that has a save feature) Sonic and Tails tangle with Robotnik once more, but this time they also have to deal with Knuckles, an Echidna who believes that Sonic and Tails are the bad guys!
Sonic and Knuckles - Sonic and Knuckles team up to fight Dr. Robotnik together! Knuckles brings some new gameplay to the series, but ultimatly, this game didn't sell very well.
Sonic 3-D Blast - Sonic must maneuver through a 3-D world to rescue Flickie Island!
Sonic Spinball - A Sonic flavored pinball game features four stages and bosses.
Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine - Based on the popular Japanese puzzle game Puyo Puyo, players must match colored blobs to defeat Robotnik and his army of robots.Read more ›
