Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection with OVER 40 Sega Genesis games!
I feel sorry for the suckers who've paid for any Genesis games on the Wii's Virtual Console or Xbox Live Arcade included in this title.
If only Nintendo wasn't so stingy with their library of games. Can you imagine a collection of over 40 SNES games retailing for $30?!?


Some of the games featured in this collection had previously appeared in the previous Sega Genesis Collection:
Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
Altered Beast
Bonanza Bros.
Columns
Comix Zone
Decap Attack
Ecco the Dolphin
Ecco: The Tides of Time
Flicky
Gain Ground
Golden Axe
Golden Axe II
Golden Axe III
Kid Chameleon
Phantasy Star II
Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom
Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium
Ristar
Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Super Thunder Blade
Vectorman
Vectorman 2

The following games have previously appeared in the Sonic Mega Collection:
Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine
Sonic 3D Blast
Sonic & Knuckles
Sonic Spinball
Sonic the Hedgehog 3

The following games are brand new and have not appeared in ether of the previously mentioned collections:
Alien Storm
Beyond Oasis
Dynamite Headdy
E-SWAT: City Under Siege
Fatal Labyrinth
Shining in the Darkness
Shining Force
Shining Force II: Ancient Sealing
Streets of Rage
Streets of Rage 2
Streets of Rage 3

FWIW I always preferred Peter Gabriel to Sonic.

THE UNLOCKABLES!

The ARCADE port's of Alien Syndrome, Altered Beast, Congo Bongo, Fantasy Zone, Shinobi, Space Harrier, and Zaxxon!
They should have also included the arcade version of Golden Axe by adding it to your games list on Xbox Live for the 360 version.
They should have also included the arcade version of Alien Storm, E-SWAT, and Super Thunder Blade. The Genesis versions of Bonanza Bros. and Gain Ground work well enough over the arcade versions.


The Sega Master System games Golden Axe Warrior and the original Phantasy Star!
I do wish they would have included the Sega Ages remakes of Phantasy Star I & II!

I got this last week, and this week picked up a Street Fighter 4 pad which is functionally identical to the Genesis 6 button.

great value, much better than virtual consoles...
