SONIC MEGA COLLECTION PLUS A special extended version of the popular GameCube compilation ported for the PS2 and Xbox, Sonic Mega Collection Plus contains 20 of the most popular Sonic the Hedgehog and SEGA Genesis titles in one convenient set. It carries over all the content of the previous version, including the following emulated Genesis games:
Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Sonic the Hedgehog 3 Sonic & Knuckles Sonic 3D Blast Sonic the Hedgehog: Spinball Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine Flicky Ristar
It also has the special games created by locking Sonic & Knuckles onto the earlier Sonic games: Blue Sphere, Knuckles the Echidna in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles.
New to the Plus version is a save-state function, lots of new artwork, movies and comics in addition to what was on GameCube and several new games. The Genesis games The Ooze and Comix Zone were now available in all regions. The previous version had included them only in Japan. Additionally, a Game Gear emulator was added along with six Game Gear games:
Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic Chaos Sonic Drift Sonic Labyrinth Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine Sonic Blast
SUPER MONKEY BALL DELUXE This game is basically a fusion of Super Monkey Ball 1 and 2 for the PS2 and XBox. All of the levels from those two games are available in this collection, and all of the minigames are already unlocked and included. Formerly only available to GameCube players, the Super Monkey Ball series has made it to the PS2 and Xbox after a wait of almost 3 and a half years.
The game itself plays very much like the old arcade game Marble Madness. You control a monkey in a ball, and you have to navigate it through many perilous labyrinths to the finish. In the previous two games you had limited lives/tries, but here you have infinite lives, which makes it all the easier.
