The gameplay involves collecting rings as a form of health, and a simple control scheme, with jumping and attacking controlled by a single button.
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2It is the second main entry in the Sonic the Hedgehog series, and introduced Sonic’s sidekick, Miles “Tails” Prower, controllable by a second player. In the story, Sonic and Tails must stop series antagonist Dr. Ivo Robotnik from stealing the Chaos Emeralds to power his space station, the Death Egg.
MORTAL KOMBAT 2The game’s plot continues from the first game, featuring the next Mortal Kombat tournament set in the otherdimensional realm of Outworld, with the Outworld and Earthrealm representatives fighting each other on their way to challenge the evil emperor Shao Kahn. Also, Mortal Kombat 2 introduced more varied finishing moves (including several Fatalities per character) and new finishers.
NBA JAMThis video game based on the National Basketball Association found popularity with its photorealistic digitized graphics, over-the-top presentation and exaggerated style of two-on-two basketball play. NBA Jam allowed players to jump many times above their own height, make slam dunks that defy human capabilities, and freely shove or elbow opponents out of the way and get flagged. It also featured a variety of secret characters, as well as the ability to track player records and statistics between play sessions.
DISNEY’S ALADDINDisney’s Aladdin is a 2D side-scrolling video game in which the player controls Aladdin and his monkey Abu through several stages taking place throughout the city of Agrabah.

I remember back in 1999 I wanted a game console so bad, so my parents went to a goodwill and bought me one for 10$ with 8 games, 1 of them was sonic 3!the controllers may be huge with huge buttons, but its gives a great grip even with the 6 button pad (recommended)Durability 10/10 this console wont die! I threw it across the room and slammed it down on the caprted floor and still palys! ive only seen 1 broken genesis only because the contacts corrodedgraphics 8/10, back in 1988 when it was released, it was the best looking console until the SNES, with a headphone jack, and easy to use controls, easy to program for, it had several 100 gamesgame library 10/10 with up to 930 games to choose & collect, you cant go wrong, RPGs, shooters, adventure games, SONIC series, even a prett good FPS called zero tolerance, it is a beast.sound, 6/10 early games on it sounded kinda 8 bit and ugly, but put in right hands, like konami, it rivals the SNES!and theres even a CD and 32 bit attachment for it, now thats devoted to the system!
This is has good games to play like Sonic the Hedgehog ,Street Fighter II , Mortal Kombat and the Game Genie to find werid codes . buy this to relive your Childhood.
I might just be 18, but the only game system that has ever made me truley happy is the Sega Genesis. I remember playing all the good classics when i was very little at my uncles house, and as I grew older, those same games were the best i have ever played. Please, if your a parent, give your child the gift of the perfect game console.On another note, just because you bought the game system from a bad shop, it doesn’t mean that this console is bad. complain to the shop, the the overall console review.
It’s fantastic! I’m a longtime sega genesis fan the HD on the mega retron really cleans up the grafix. Just be carefull the mega I got had a glich in it I got a replacement it works amazing!
Very good fun,
Now I have two SEGA Megadrives or Genesis in the North America. Each one is the first generation rather than the later models or at least one is and they both work fine. This gamesystem is not known for screwing up which is more than can be said for modern game consoles *cough*360*cough*. But Then again these are not bought purely because I would like to feedback on the product itself instead of what service I got. Now this is after the SEGA Master System and incorporates some of the franchises that SEGA has become known for and is the first 16 Bit console. There are memorable games, Sonic the Hedgehog’s games not included. This and the Dreamcast tie for the most sucessful SEGA consoles. Even the controller can be doubled for those older game consoles like Atari 2600 or an Adams Computer. It’s fun, it’s classic it’s a classic system to get.
Leuk ding, werkt goed. Controller moet wat (ingespeeld) worden. Fijn terug die oude games spelen.
the sega genesis..ah this takes me back..it was christmas 1989 when i was first introdeced to this system i remember it made my christmas that year..i had a atari 7800 at the time as well as a nes and master system( which i still have in great condition and still use to this day) but there was something special about the sega genesis that was top notch..the graphics were and still are excellent..the titles are great..i love the shinobi series, as well as the arcade classics..there are too many to count … this was the best system that sega has put on the market, sure the others(master system, dreamcast. and the awesome saturn) were great in their own right and have great titles etc..the genesis was the only system that sega had made that lasted for so many years through the expansion units such as the power base converter, the 32x set up and my favorite the rare sega cd(the version that you put the original model gebesis on top of) In this day of playstation 2(soon to be playstation 3) the x box,xbox 360, and others the sega genesis has stood the test of time and is highly sought after by collectors..why you might ask? because the games were done, fun, and still hold up well today. the original model with the volume control and headphone jack is the one to get..the original and still the best:) i have my same one since 1989 and its still going strong in 2006 this is what you get when you create a well built, highly entertaining system..the people still come back.
its not new. Its an old console, a realy old console. Why do people expect it to be immaculate?it works perfect, its ancient. iam very happy
This is my favorite model of the sega genesis because it has the headphone jack and volume slider on the front. If you plug one of those red and white audio cables to the headphone jack and the other end to the matching colors on your tv you get stereo sound also make sure you have a model 1 av cable you will only use the yellow part for picture anyway this gives you the best sound you can get from a model one. There are so many excellent games on this system. I already have a lot of the classics like the sonic and streets of rage games on the genesis collection disc for ps3 so I got one of these to play great 3rd party titles like alladin, tmnt hyperstone heist, batman, the adventures of bat man and robin, x men 2, jungle book and mickey mania just to name a few I have had so much fun playing these games again it brought back so many memories. I never had the model 1 till now I once had the model 2 but this one is my favorite I’m glad I went with model 1 this time.
