This has been a delightful stroll down Memory Lane.
I was excited to get hold of this, because it included some games I remember from years ago, when I used to have the now-obsolete SEGA Master System II and when I used to play some of these games with a friend at his house.
Now, I have all those games and more on my own PC, thanks to this brilliant collection!
Sure enough, I haven't figured out how to unlock the locked games yet, but I have thoroughly enjoyed the games I have been able to play and indeed - these were good old days! Sonic the Hedgehog may be in 3D these days, but he started out big with these games!
I also love those special features, like the publicity and comic art also available on this disc.
To anybody who is any sort of Sonic fan, I recommend this!

Relive those days of controller gnashing frustration in Windows 7.
Excellent, stable, fast collection of classic hedgehog shenanigans.
Works fine under Win7 x86 and x64.
For those having Win 7 issues:-
i] Install as admin.
ii] Set megacollectionplus.exe and configurater.exe to run as admin & WinXP SP3 compatibility.
iii] Run configurater and setup your keys.
iv] Run megacollection, job done.

The Sonic Mega collection is an absolute gem of a collection of Sonic games from those days on the Mega Drive. I almost overlooked this game myself having almost all the Sonic games on my mega drive. But what swung it was the extras and I can tell you that there is more here than the description says:

Yes there are all the main sonic games that are described, sonic 1, sonic2, sonic 3, sonic and knuckles, sonic 3D and spinball but there are unlockable extra sonic games...SPOILERS...you actually end up unlocking the games you could play on the old mega drive when pushing another cartridge into the sonic and knuckles cartridge, these are Knuckles in Sonic 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Blue Sphere (which you got when locking Sonic 1 into the sonic and knuckles cartridge). This is pretty much the ONLY mega drive collection I've come across that lets you play these lock on games, but to unlock them you have to play for a long time collectively.

I'm not sure exactly how many hours I played before these extra games became available but it took quite a few hours of collective game play. Eventually you also end up unlocking another sega classic called Vectorman, a game that has nothing to do with Sonic. It's actually disappointing that they put in the game Vectorman as I was expecting to unlock that rare gem Knuckles Chaotix (which was a 32bit game you could get for the mega drive) but this game doesn't exist in the Mega Collection and that spoils it a bit for me.

Every game has special help and cheats but these only become available after you have played a game for at least 3 hours.

Even thought I have the first four Sonic games for the Nintendo DS, it feels so nice to have them as well as a few others on the PC. Yes, some of the games are locked but you can save your progress on the games you play (which is very handy especially for games like Sonic Spinball). Retro to the Max! Any true Sonic fans with a PC should get this :-)

I do have some advice though. It seems that some reviewers can install the game but it won't play. I had the same problem. We installed it on 3 different computers (two high spec computer and an old small laptop) and it only worked on the laptop. After a while, we figured out this. There is a requirement of 3.2GB space on your hard disk/drive. The problem is if you have MORE than this on yout hard drive, IT..WILL.....NOT...WORK! The reason it did not work on two of the computers we tested was that they had 4GB space and the laptop had a measley 2GB space. If you can afford to do this (ie it won't affect your other games), reduce your disk space to 2GB and try the game then. We did and now it works perfectly!

Of course, this advice won't work for everyone. I guess in the end, it depends if you think playing this space is worth reducing your hard drive space.

Have fun :-)

I bought the game and unfortunately I cant play it after a bit of research I found out a few things.

Somethings are you might have to change the compatibility to run the game if you have a different Operating System.
Another reason is that you might have too much memory in your computer (My Problem) Got a Brand new computer On Monday and to play the game I have to take some Memory out (I wont be doing just for this game). Unfortunate but I know the games are good and would still recommend just make sure you read the specs first before you go buying the game and complain it doesn't work.

This game is Awsome and for me no games were locked. I had always wanted to play Sonic Chaos. I like the illustrations but the videos could be more than Sonic Heroes- Sonic Heroes is rubbish in my opinion. If it's available buy it but only if it's cheaper than £15 otherwise It's not worth it
