SummaryGreat compilation, but could have been done better.
The GoodI really love having these old games for my PC. Not having a Sega Genesis, it's nice to be able to play great games like Sonic 2 and Shining Force. Super Hang-On was released for DOS many years ago, so fans of the arcade game will enjoy the newer, better-looking Genesis version included on the Smash Pack. This, however, can also be the Smash Pack's downfall...
The BadComix Zone for Windows was released by Sega a few years ago. In fact, it can still be purchased at Sega's web site. I cannot understand why Sega opted to put an emulated Genesis version on this compilation, when they have a superior Windows version, that could have been easily put on this disk. The Windows version is cleaner looking, and has more options.
It would also have been nice if these were not strictly emulated Genesis games, and that they were redone with visual and audio upgrades. These games could definately benefit from facelifts. I guess more time and money would have gone into the project than was desired though, and the disk would have been more expensive.
