When it was originally announced, it was part of an abortive campaign to confuse and annoy cranially challenged members of the press [like us -Ed], but since then Sonic Team's surprise GameCube project has been praised by Mega Drive / Genesis nuts and bemoaned by those who think another compendium of 2D platformers is a bit of a cheap trick. Whatever your opinion of it, we now know what your hard-earned moolah will pay for. As originally predicted, the line-up will include the three Sonic The Hedgehog adventures, not to mention Sonic & Knuckles, and completing the package will be Sonic 3D Blast, Sonic Spinball and Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine (a sort of Tetris clone). Rumours of Sonic CD's inclusion were apparently entirely fabricated, which is a shame. Nevertheless, if you arrived in the realms of gaming a bit later than the rest of us (which is hardly a crime, although the vast majority of 16-bit games were), then Sonic Mega Collection still represents a pint-sized peep into the past.
