A modern retro collection should have a good batch of games and some extra niceties like save states and emulator settings. SEGA Genesis Classics checks those boxes, providing the best way to do what Nintendon't today. But considering it doesn't even have all the first-party hits that it should, much less the most memorable third-party ones, it's hardly a definitive package.

There's a disappointing lack of museum features, but you can't really argue with 50 classic Mega Drive games, online play, and a surprisingly generous price tag.

Unless you own an impressive collection of 16 bit cartridges and an old TV, this is the best way to play Sega classic games. We miss some titles (specially racers, shooters and third party) and more extras, but still a great compilation for old school gamers.

A great compilation with a lot of classics but we miss some games and a few more extras in the mix.

Lots of good/great games in a competent package. But... where are the third parties classics?

Many of the games featured were great back in the day, but if we're going to revisit them now, it'd be nice to have some more features for the nostalgic amongst us to enjoy.

Sega Genesis Classics boasts an amazing collection of 50 games, all of which will keep you busy and entertained for hours. Some of the games can be challenging to a fault, but that's just the way some old school games were made. The games hold true to their original forms and bring you a cartridge full of nostalgia that you can pop right into the console of your heart.

Sega Megadrive Classics is certainly not ''the'' ultimate collection which will satisfy everyone, due to the lack of some great games and the retirement of others, but the new entries are also remarkable. The offer is still efficient as before. We regret that too few games can be played in french language. Still, for the price, that collection worth its purchase, either to discover some forgotten gems ( and some rotten games too), or to initiate those who have not known the90's in video games with a best-of coming from one of the best consoles of its generation.

Despite the lack of some great titles and a technically forgettable multiplayer, SEGA Mega Drive Classics is a good collection that offers dozens of hours in old-style fun.
