Sega Mega Drive Clas­sic Con­sole

IF SEGA IS MORE YOUR FLAVOUR, THIS 16-BIT SYS­TEM MIGHT BE THE ONE FOR YOU

DE­SIGN

The Sega Mega Drive Clas­sic Con­sole de­sign is purely func­tional and in no way rem­i­nis­cent of the orig­i­nal sys­tem’s look. A missed op­por­tu­nity for nos­tal­gic ap­peal in our opin­ion, but the unit is sturdy and fin­ished to a very good level.

FEA­TURES

It’s fair to say that not all of the 80 built-in games are clas­sics – many are not worth your time – but the ad­di­tion of a car­tridge port helps nul­lify their in­clu­sion. The abil­ity to play orig­i­nal games is the real sav­ing grace of this sys­tem.

PER­FOR­MANCE

If you have a CRT TV knock­ing around, the games will look ex­actly as you re­mem­ber them. How­ever, they won’t sound the same. In-game mu­sic plays back slower com­pared to the orig­i­nals, even when us­ing car­tridges. Game­play re­mains the same.

US­ABIL­ITY

With only two but­tons on the sys­tem, get­ting to grips with it is child’s play. Just power the sys­tem up and tap the menu to re­set. We sug­gest plug­ging an old three-but­ton con­trol pad into one of the front ports for a more authen­tic play sesh.
