Sega Mega Drive Classic Console
IF SEGA IS MORE YOUR FLAVOUR, THIS 16-BIT SYSTEM MIGHT BE THE ONE FOR YOU
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.
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.
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.
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.
