Sega has unsuccessfully attempted to make a mini console in the past. This time it’s different as they have made the hardware and software directly, instead of previously licensing it to a 3rd party
The emulation/performance is no different than my original Mega Drive, except that the image looks cleaner on modern TVs, and you can even fix that by putting on ‘Scanline’ mode (which makes the image look like an old CRT TV).
The console is very well built with a mini cartridge door that opens and mini headphone volume slider that sturdily moves (note - both are just cosmetic). It’s brilliantly built with true love, care and attention to detail.
The controllers are exactly the same as the original, except that the d-pad seems to be slightly shinier than my 30 year old equivalent (although that could just be because they’re new)
Nintendo Mini comparison:
Compared to my Super Nintendo Mini, the Sega has a few advantages; double the games, a longer controller cable and the ability to change games or save/load via the controller (unfortunately Nintendo requires you to press ‘reset’ on the console)
Really great selection. 40 of the best games from my youth, with an additional 2 games that were previously never released!
Everything that I’ve tried after fairly intensive use is perfectly emulated.
Ability to save and load anywhere and HDMI out.
I pulled out my original Mega Drive to compare side-by-side and I’m very happy to finally report that this is it! Sega has finally made a perfect Mini console that’s indistinguishable from my original (albeit smaller)!
Tip - Be careful not to accidentally buy the old stock still in shops, particularly the Flashback range (made by AT Games but under the Sega name), as they are truely terrible products and not actually made by Sega. Just look for the exact box in this Amazon image and you’ll be fine!
My kids (5 and 7) are addicted to the original Sonic game. Totally worth the money.
