Sega Genesis Classics rating. Xbox One.



  • There are lots of game’s for you to enjoy and many of them are classics so I was taken on a trip down memory lane quite a lot, which was awesome.
  • This is a collection where you will be playing for a long time to come so I’m not exaggerating when I say the replaybility is almost endless.
  • The online and local multiplayer options work incredibly well and playing with your friends and family always deliver fun filled moments. 
  • I thought the price of the game was absolutely brilliant and without a doubt you definitely get great value for your money.
  • The presentation side of the game brought back a lot of memories for me and some of the game’s still look and sound great to this day. 


  • The controls do take a bit of getting used to and it would’ve been nice to have had more options when it came to the controller input.
  • Whilst the game has a lot of classics included there is some noticeable omissions, which is a shame.


Final Thoughts:

All in all the Sega Mega Drive console gave me a lot of joy when I was growing up and I still have two Mega Drive’s to this day and of course I still play them to this day because some classics never die. Obviously when I first heard about Sega Genesis Classics the boy in me came alive and to say I was excited would be a massive understatement. Thankfully this collection of fantastic game’s has been done really well and you can see that a lot of love and effort has gone into the collection. Speaking about the collection there are over 50 game’s for you to get to grips with and some of them are true gems which will keep you coming back for more time and time again. There are a few noticeable omissions in the line up though and it would’ve been nice to see them, but this isn’t a major problem because there’s more than enough here to keep you satisfied. I’m not exaggerating when I say that the replaybility present in the game is almost endless and I’ve already sunk quite a few hours into various game’s and the best thing is that I’m nowhere near close to getting bored. I must admit that I was surprised by the price of the game because I expected it to be quite a bit more expensive. For £24.99/$29.99 you get great value for money and when you think what you can buy with that type of money nowadays you realise it isn’t much so this makes this collection even more of a steal. You also realise that you get even more bang for your buck when you notice that there are online and local multiplayer options present. I was very eager to play the collection of game’s in these modes and thankfully they hold up really well without any problems. Trust me when I say there’s nothing better than playing these classic game’s with friends and family and in the end playing the game’s like this brings back even more fantastic memories, which is great. You will however have to get used to the controls in the game because the control schemes can cause you a few problems at the start and it would’ve been nice to have been able to chop and change the controller input more.  The presentation side of the game is absolutely fantastic and ticks a lot of boxes for me. Visually the game stays very close to the retro style and most of the game’s still look and sound great to this day, which is awesome. At the end of the day any fan of the old-school Sega consoles will enjoy this collection of game’s. In fact I can see Sega Genesis Classics bringing even more fans to the table because I know quite a few modern gamer’s who would absolutely adore this collection of game’s. I of course adored these game’s and in the end this compilation gets a huge recommendation from me.

I rate Sega Genesis Classics    9/10.
