Description

Sega Smash Pack: Volume One was the first, and ultimately the only collection of classic Sega games released for the Dreamcast. It contains only some games in common with the PC Sega Smash Pack and Smash Pack 2 so is an iteration of the concept rather than a port of that collection.

This collections features ten emulated Genesis/Mega Drive titles. These games are Altered Beast, Columns, Golden Axe, Phantasy Star II, Shining Force, Vectorman, Revenge of Shinobi, Sonic the Hedgehog, Streets of Rage 2 and Wrestle War. This was the first American release of Wrestle War.

It also included two games that had been previous released for Dreamcast: Sega Swirl, which had been given away on various discs and Virtua Cop 2, which had been previously available for Dreamcast only in Japan.

Trivia

The Smash Pack runs Sega Genesis games on a Genesis emulator for the Dreamcast. (A testament of how powerful the Dreamcast is.) While most of the emulation works well, the sound emulation is a mixed bag: FM music sounds different and not quite the same, while the digital sound emulation actually sounds better than on a Genesis.
