I don't get why people are complaining about the filter. Streets of Rage 2 has it and it's not that bad. If you don't like it, turn it off.

I may pick this up but I think £25 if a bit steep, I'll maybe wait a while then.

It looks like zSNES when you turn on the advanced smoothing. Basically it's like cheating AA :)

I wonder if it'll come with all of the lovely slowdown intact on those 3D Sonic 2 levels. Ah, the memories.

Strange. I check out Amazon and it says Shinobi 3, but the screenshots show the very first one. So what's the deal then?

i don't understand why sega are still releasing this at all. We've had this same compilation at least half a dozen times before.

Give us a Saturn compilation. or find some way of making a Dream cast one. now that'd be worth buying.

But sonic and streets of rage again. no thank you.

Added to that, there are clearly shots for Zaxxon (very early Sega arcade game) and Alien Syndrome which I believe was a master system/game gear title.

Those aren't on the Amazon list either.

Those are the unlockable games, I assume. It did say "unlock arcade classics" in the trailer. Maybe not enough room for "unlock Master System conversions of arcade classics".

Also kimoak, Shinobi 3 is definitely included. The original Shinobi is just one of the unlockables. It says it on the official games list here on the Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonic%27s_ ... Collection

I hope this sells bucket loads and motivates Sega develop a 3D/2D Sonic 1 & 2 remake (Prince of Persia style).

The good news is that it seems to have the first Phantasy Star game on there (those last few screen shots), meaning the complete series is on one disc!

Pity Zero Wing isn't on here (are you still allowed to quote "ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US!" without getting a super-sized wedgie?)

Screen shot 4 has mecha sonic in it, strange thing is I cannot remember him been in any of the megadrive games, does this mean that sonic cd is also on there?

Meco Sonic was the second to last boss on Sonic 2 and made various guest appearances in the other games.
