49 classic SEGA titles on one disc.

SEGA has released its Mega Drive Ultimate Collection compilation for Xbox 360 and PS3, which features over 40 classic games taken from the 16-bit Mega Drive years, as well as content from its 8-bit Master System and 1980’s arcade era games library.

To be more precise the compilation of classics consists of 40 Mega Drive titles, with another 9 Master System/Arcade games to unlock, with some complete series making the cut, including Golden Axe and Streets of Rage.

The Mega Drive has a colossal library of games, so you’ll probably find some titles in the list that you didn’t like at the time, or you’ll discover that some of your favourite games didn’t make the cut. Personally, we would have liked to have seen Road Rash and Revenge of Shinobi among others, but it’s still an impressive compilation that spans a wide range of genres and includes some great retro titles, including the side-scrolling beat ‘em up, Altered Beast, and the first Sonic Trilogy (when Sonic games used to be good.)
