First of all, i recently reviewed EA Replay (another classic compilation title) I feel the need to mention S.M.D.C's Plus points over the EA replay compilation pack first.
This pack was carefully, and thoughtfully put together with great attention to detail, a whole host of unlockable bits and bobs about each game that really make them worth the effort, and none of the games are cut down in any way, shape or form, and they all port over to the PSP nicely.
Sonic and Sonic 2 alone have provided me with many hours of fun!!
(Also, there direct posrts from the origionals, as the level select from Sonic II sort of works, go to sound menu, play 19,65,9 and 17 and youl hear a Ding indicating activation, Sadly, theres no way to do A+Start on the PSP to actually use the cheat.)
also, many of the other titles are just as entertaining as i origionaly remember them.
Now, the big problem of Retro games.
People who played them many moons ago often look at them with rose tinted glasses so to speak, and after playing modern games, many of them seem rather shallow compared to how you remember them.
As much as some people complain that modern games are graphics over gameplay, when you play some retro games, they make you realise just how much gameplay has actually improved over the years.
Bottom line, Unless your actually old enough to have owned a Sega mega drive, you might not enjoy many titles in this collection, also, a few of the titles in this are
rather questionable additions. i can think of dozens that would have made better choices than ones that were not good in their hayday, let alone now.
This compilation is worth buying, even just for the sonic games alone!
