Many of us have been there. That fateful day when our beloved Sega Master System or Mega Drive disappeared into the hands of some stranger along with a bucket load of game cartridges – so painstakingly built up over the years – at some crumby car boot sale. Yes the money was nice, but it never consoled you for long, and years later, despite having some faster, more advanced console, there was always that occasionally craving for another go on Streets of Race and Golden Axe.
So if parting with your beloved Sega Mega Drive was a decision you have come to regret, or you just fancy having a go on some classic retro games, you can hold of the Sega Mega Drive: Ultimate Collection for £12.50 as part of play.com's two games for £25 deal. It is true that there are quite a few rubbish games being offered as part of this deal, but as Clairemike from Hotukdeals rightly points out, getting your hands on the Sega Mega Drive: Ultimate Collection for £12.50 is a great deal so long as you can find something decent to pair it up with.

The collection features a host of games – some 40 in total – and the ones which immediately jump at you are Streets of Rage 1-3, Golden Axe 1-3, Alex the Kidd, and Sonic the Hedgehog 1-3. If, like me, your after school routine consisted of brutally battering people to death with bottles, knives and fists in Streets of Rage, then you should get ready to indulge in some serious nostalgia.
However do remember that these are Mega Drive Games. Some reviewers were attacking this collection pack, and giving it a one star rating because it had bad graphics and simple controls (?). Surely that’s the whole point? In case you forgot The Mega Drive only ever consisted of a movement pad, an attack button, a jump button and a special attack button. So if you’re not into the authentic, retro experience it’s probably better to stick with your PS3 games.
