Wow, so many memories.

Aren't these games on the Sega mega collection for the PS3/2 and not sure what other platforms. And cost a lot less.

why so cold?

Original 2nd post before it was edited by OP


Maybe because it's not a Sega Mega Drive and is poor quality with many issues.

Just a thought.

SNES all the way! Megadrive had some good games, but the snes even had better pads, let alone games.

This has been posted many times in the last year or so and this is the highest price I've seen it posted at.

It has been as low as £18.99 @ Play.com http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/449531/sega-mega-drive-console-with-15-gam

You can get an original Megadrive and loads of games cheaper than this, Crazy!

One person (the original poster) managed to find it at that price.

Customer rating: 2 out of 5 stars Dissapointed now looking to repair my old Megadrive

Hoped that this would replace my broken megadrive. Bought it for Sonic and Knuckles which played to death on the original console.

So here are the good and bad. The game plays and is good but the user experience is not as good like the original console.
The graphics from the included AV lead look worse than the original console RF for a start. They are not as sharp and appear slightly muddy. It appears original megadrive had superior graphic signal processing.
The game is not as smooth as the original and has timing problems. When sonic moves you will notice that the backgrounds do not scroll as smooth like the original. Feels slower than what it should been but not too much.
Also when you have effects like the flame on eggman spaceship on first level act 2, where the flame is on and off to make it transparent on the original console it looks like it is transparent, here you can tell that it is just on and off.

The sound also has huge problems. Some tunes… more »

The sound also has huge problems. Some tunes feel like when you play a wrong note on the piano.

In few words this feels like a bad executed emulator, by degrading the original user experience through graphics problems, timing issues (frame rate not locked). Sound quality poor.

You can play the games to relive past memories but you will still miss your megadrive this does not replace it.

the concept is good.....there are 3 or 4 reasonable built in games, the rest tho are pretty poor.........the main problem being it does not play many original cartridges.......it will either crash mid-game or simply not read the cartridge......on the other hand it is slightly addictictive.......the price however has been reduced again to reflect the quality!


It's not a proper Mega Drive, just an emulator with lots of problems - best to avoid IMO
