This pack is golden, first you have the beatem' up classic Streets of Rage 2, but then comes one of the best RPG series of all time... Ofcource I'm talking about the Shining Force series with Shining Force 2 being the better of the series, it's a great Tactical-RPG with lots of playable characters to mix up your party with and a lot of hidden characters, I found all hidden characters the 6th playthrough I think. Great story, fun gameplay. If you like old-school RPG series like Lufia, Grandia, Legaia and Shadow Hearts then you will love Shining Force, it's not quite the same gameplay as these series but it's the same quality (Top notch). In my opinion Shining Force 2 alone is worth the opackage price so go for it and get some other great games as a bonus (^_^)

Classic Games Worth Checking Out

This collection of Sega megadrive games features some of the best games of that era. Despite the 2d graphics, you get a very fun gaming experience here. The concept and gameplay of these games more than balance the older graphics.

The notable inclusion here is Street of Rage 1 and 2, widely considered as cult classic in the beat them up genre. There's plenty of replay value here, as the levels and villains come in a variety of patterns.

If you like RPG, Shining Force and Landstalker are both included to satisfy that genre. I was impressed especially with Landstalker, which ticks all the boxes for what makes a great RPG.

Gunstar Heroes is one of the best action shooter of that era, with awesome bosses to battle and a strong gameplay mechanics. It is simply fun and worth replaying.

For these above games alone, it would be a worthy pack already. But the other games are also fun, which means this is a high recommendation for retro gamers.

If you love old games, in particular platform and old action games,SEGA Megadrive Collection - Series 4 is a good pack. The best game of the pack is Streets of Rage, a beat em up that is not easy to finish and with many levels full of enemies to defeat

This new collection from the Sega Megadrive/Genesis brings the best game of this console for the PC, my favourite games are:

The Streets of Rage saga is great, the second game is one of the best beat 'em up games of all time, the quality in this title is top and if you have a buddy to play it the fun is endless.

The Shining Force games are amazing strategy rpg titles, Awesome fantasy plot and a gameplay with turn based battles.

Gunstar Heroes is a fun and fast paced arcade with a lot of humour thanks to the cartoon style graphics, the bosses are really neat.

The other games are really good and for this price this pack is a great deal.

Another good collection

This collection includes the two Street of Rages, two of the best scrolling beat'em up I ever played. If you have a friend, this game is good today as it was twenty years ago. Plus there are other good games like Shining in the Darkness, the two Shining Force (very good jrpg). Another nostalgia collection that must be on every retrogame fan!
