Any Idea Of The Games For The New Megadrive Collection?

Post by SpecChum81 » Tue Jan 23, 2007 6:15 am

Just wondered if anyone knew?

I can't wait for this collection and I hope it won't be a dissapointment.

This is only in the American Sega Genesis Collection, but other then that it's correct.

What?

No Road Rash?

Thats a shame, I hope it is on the English version, I don't know what games were more or less classic in the US than the UK

Streets Of Rage and The Immortal should be in there to in my opinion.

Thanks for the list though, I'll no doubt but it, or I might just emulate them all :wink:

If I recall correctly, Road Rash is on the EA compilation... which I heard is pretty poor.

Shame.. Road Rash is ace!

Road Rash and The Immortal are both EA titles - Sega can only put their own games on any collection they publish.

just defending the ea replay title , its pretty good , road rash 1 , 2 & 3 play great as does desert strike , haunting and most of the others , didnt like ultima though.

Got it on import off ebay for about $25 including postage so it was not as expensive as the uk release.

There are 2 major problems with the EA collection

1 - Price.

2 - Several of the games are not the best version (i.e - Megadrive when the game was better on SNES etc)

You've solved 1. 2 may or may not be important to you.

I can confirm that you get to play as 50 or 60hz.

I do prefer the megadrive versions of Desert strike and Jungle strike , Haunting wasnt released on the snes , neither was Mutant league football or road rash as far as i remember. I didnt buy it for wing commander , Bob , virtua pinball or ultima but id rather have them on the disc that not.

Syndicate was better on other machines (amiga) but i don't dislike the megadrive version.

So point 2 is important but when (in my opinion) the best version of the games that i fancied playing on the psp are already on the compilation then theres nowt to worry about.

I've been playing Shinobi 3 and there is definitely no Shadow Dancer in sight.
