Sega Smash Pack Volume 1 – Consumer Guide

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence

Parents dont have anything to fear with this game, since the violence depicted at the time these were created was a far cry from being close to realistic. There arent any scenes of nudity or any questionable language, either. Some younger children might actually enjoy the disc more than the older ones since theyre too young to know what the games are actually supposed to sound like, and theyre accessible enough to be played by any age.

Gamers in general wont find much to keep them interested here unless they are either old enough to have played these games when they were new, or are really into retro trips. The RPGs are good enough and will entertain anyone who can get past the dated graphics, but I cant imagine the action titles keeping anyone busy for more than a night once the nostalgia factor wears off. If the game was more reasonably priced Id recommend it for the RPGs alone, but for a full $40, Id suggest that you just rent.

People looking to relive their younger days will find an excellent selection of Segas greatest hits horribly marred by the worst sound to be found on the Dreamcast. Worse sound than was found on the Genesis, in fact. For games as old as this running on such sweet hardware, this is simply unacceptable.
