Granted, not all of the games are destined to be remembered through the ages. Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle is an adventure about a boy who side scrolls across the planet, fighting cars, birds, toy planes, and a bunch of other weird stuff. Flicky lets you jump up and down platforms collecting birds and avoiding cats. That’s about all you can do in Flicky. In Gain Ground, you very slowly rescue hostages, unlock up to 20 playable characters, and shoot through areas that each contain slightly more enemies than the last. Kid Chameleon is about a kid playing a virtual reality video game that has become evil. The Kid is known for his ability to morph into different forms. And also for his irony. But mostly for that morphing thing.
Although some of the games are a bit quirky, this collection is one of the only ways to play them outside of hunting down the originals on eBay and paying a lot more. If you can’t get a hold of a PS3, don’t feel like shelling out $600, or you’re just old school, the Sega Genesis Collection is a great value for some games your grandma would be proud to see you playing. She's cool like that.
