I love these games. Even though I own them in their original Sega Genesis cart version and on the xbox 360 hits collection I cannot seem to get enough of these games. Now when my children are taking up the gaming tv I can still play them on the computer. A word of warning though, it seems that sega will release a couple of games singularly before releasing the set so when one of you favorites appears as a lone game you might want to wait a couple of weeks to see if the next classic series will contain them
For the price of this sega compilation pc games is great. Second of all the games play great and look great. I love Vectorman!!!. I recommend using a joypad/controller for a better gaming experience and the save at anytime. The fact that you can download it super fast to as many pc you own its a plus. Get it!
Retro gamers wanting to rock Genesis games on their PC now have a decent option to emulators. NOTE: I said, "decent". There are some obvious PROS & CONS and emus (Kega Fusion, Gens 32) still do a far better job, minus the hang-ups.
PROS: Pretty good selection of Genesis fan favorites $7.50 for 10 games easily edges out the Wii's Virtual console ($6-$10 for a single game) controls easily map to any USB gamepad (I use the Logitech Dual Action and have used a wired Xbox 360 controller) netbook friendly; modest hardware requirements
CONS: No support for Linux nor Mac.
Bottom Line: Mostly positives. SGCS (volumes 1-5) is worth owning. But Sega needs to acknowledge Linux and Mac users.
