X-Play Reviews Sega Genesis Collection

The Sega Genesis Collection has apparently emerged as one of the best classic game compilations of all time. (If there was a Gamecube version, I would buy it for myself). I was pretty happy to see our friends at X-Play have taken the time to share the Genesis Collection with its television audience and provided some relevant commentary on the compilation itself.

Yeah, I’ll never understand what people see in Altered Beast. Worst. Game. Ever.

At the time, Altered Beast represented arcade gaming at home. It was a pack in game when the Sega Genesis was released. I remember I was about 12 years old when my older brother surprised me by taking me to the mall to buy a Genesis, Mystic Defender, Golden Axe, and Tommy Lasorda Baseball. After playing 8-bit Sega Master System games, 16-bit gaming was a new league. Finally, I thought, I can play true arcade games at home. So at the time, Altered Beast was a great game. But by today’s standards, the game’s significance does nothing to bolster it’s simple and repetitive gameplay.
Be that as it may, I still have good memories playing Altered Beast.

It’s just a shame that they didn’t make the manuals for some of the games (Phantasy Star) either as bonus content on the disc or for download from sega. I love those old style genesis manuals!

Someone please shut up the annoying girl reviewing this. There’s nothing quite as horrid as hearing a girl whining like a fat nerd. And yes, I know how ironic that statement is.

Can’t say I am, not that I really know who she is or anything, I live in the UK so I don’t get the G4 channel. All I know is the last thing I wanna hear is a girl that sounds like a irritating school girl with too many expensive handbags talking like a gamer. It bugs me.

Morgan Webb is actually pretty knowledgeable, but she just has that personality on the show. I guess it can come off as annoying, but you get used to it if you want XPlay much
