    Good thing I just got a 4000 point card. Probably will wait on Monster World, but the other two may be early purchases. Loved Super Hang On.

    You and me both - I put so many hours into the original that I had a bruise on my thumb from the DC pad's horrible analog stick!

    Wonder Boy! I knew our paths would cross again someday. Be forewarned ye all, Alex Kidd sucks major arse.

    Man, Alex Kid in Miracle World is a Sega MASTER system game, thats really, really old.

    Revenge Of Shinobi is a classic of course.

    Wish they'd do more of the SEGA arcade classics though.
    Super Hang-On is nice, but how about Thunderblade, Powerdrift, Galaxy Force, Outrun and the mighty Space Harrier.

    Or even better, how about updates to those classic titles like they did with Afterburner?

    As long as they aren't like those SEGA Ages ones, remakes of Golden Axe, Space Harrier, Outrun could have been awesome... but they FAILED!

    Power Drift would be awesome to see again. clap

    I agree with most of you. I think this should have been three collections:
    * Alex Kidd collection: Miracle World, Shinobi World, High-Tech World.
    * Shinobi Collection: Shinobi, Revenge of Shinobi, Shinobi III.
    * Mega Games Collection: Super Hang On, World Cup Italia 90, Columns.

    Why they have mixed those 3 IPs together?

    I'll pick up the Joy Ride game eventually. I like the games where you get to play as your avatar. Wish that could have been an option in Minecraft.

    SEGA remakes FTW! However, I agree that more Shinobi would have been epic. I'm down for any nostalgia gaming from SEGA.

    Still recommend the Sonic Collection. It has awesome old school games.

    I'll eventually get those Sega collections.

    Looks like I'm the only one who ever liked Alex Kidd... still got the original Miracle World on a card for the first Master System, and yes it still works. Rock, Paper, Scissors, anyone? smile

    I agree with those talking about Shinobi, though - frickin' loved those games, although I'd add the Game Gear / Master System Shinobi that I forget the name of. It had five or six different coloured Shinobi's, each with different powers. It was a bit like the Metroidvania-style games around that time, as you could go back and do the missions with different colours and find different routes.

    As for Wonder Boy - only ever played 1 and 2 on the Master System, but did enjoy them quite a bit. Not sure if nostalgia's blinding me to the faults they had or not, though.

    Moving away from Sega - that Joyride game was what we all were supposed to get last year or the year before and it was meant to be 100% free as well. Bad move, Microsoft....
