Sega Genesis Classic Console Review

One of the very first gaming consoles I owned as a kid was the Sega Genesis. The original console, which was also known as the Mega Drive, was released in the US in August of 1989. As a young child I played many games such as Madden, Ecco the Dolphin, and even Ms Pacman on this device for hours and hours. While Sega has since ceased to produce hardware you can now get this awesome device thanks to the AtGames Sega Genesis Classic Game Console.

This incredible little box is a more modern-looking version of the classic Sega console. It comes with 80 built-in games, 2 wireless controllers, and has the ability to play on nearly any TV that has A/V plugins. It is functional but not everything works perfectly. The controllers have a distinct connectivity issue. Many buyers have noted that there is a bit of lag in the response time but it is still playable.

Sega Genesis Classic Console Games

The 80 games that come pre-programmed into the device consist of 40 Sega titles and another 40 generic titles. So, yes, it does come with a large library of games but nearly half are not really Sega games but rather a plethora of popular puzzle titles & other mostly unrecognizable games.

Other Details

While the collection of games that come with the AtGames Sega Genesis Classic is far from perfect it does include several great titles that make the console more than worth its affordable price-tag. It’s also worth noting that this device is capable of playing old Sega Genesis cartridges, too, making it an even more attractive purchase.

Sega Genesis Classic Game Console

Our Review

Score – 8/10

Overall, this Sega Genesis Classic Game Console with 80 games is a pretty decent deal. Sure, it has a few flaws, but they’re bearable. And several of the titles it comes with now sell for $30 to $50 or more each (the original cartridges) and the original consoles are a rare find and typically fetch $20 to $80+. So, in all reality, you’re getting a great deal if you just want to be able to play some great Sega games from your childhood.

Current Price – $49.99 to $69.99 depending on where you purchase it.

Again, the controllers have responsiveness issues, but other than that… there’s really nothing wrong with this device. It’s a great little box that is perfect for drowning in nostalgia with a console that was ahead of its time.
