For anyone else that just wants to enjoy a collection of mostly classic games that still play brilliantly today, it is a stunning collection.
So, if a game which is titled Ultimate Mega Drive Collection isn't for me, then what is in the gaming world? I'm a huge fan of the MD, so you couldn't be more wrong there. I haven't once said I even dislike the game.

Yeah, your own remarks here are probably a good enough reason for it to score highly. 98% is of course subjective, but all you need to know are the are heaps of games on the compilation, and the vast majority are brilliant games from the day that scored highly in their own right, including many genres (even some great RPGs) that will keep you entertained for months. And at the price represents outstanding value.
Yeah it's missing some 'extras', but doesn't bother me as I'd only look at them once. I bought the 360 version and love it. If I was rating it I'd rate it in the 90s. If you enjoy retro games and Sega classics, IMO there's little to dislike.
Just because some of the games in the compilation were once near perfect, today they are not. Not to the vast majority anyway. Do I really want to be sitting down going through Shining Force again...
Just seems the reviewer is over reaching, clutching at straws to bring the score up. I mean, front cover of a game that is now an Xbox 360 classic, good promotion.
Price is irrelevant, though you're right in what you say. As said earlier, I do really like the game. Ask anyone on my friends list and they'll tell you I'm chasing Chiptunes stupid amount of achievements. But, I can't chase his high scores, and that is another reason why it's just somewhat lame.
I'd stick by 85%. A great game, but with no online leader boards, co-op play or PAL artwork it just seems these games were thrown together in a classic "One size fits all". I'd of been happy with 1/2 the amount of games with leader boards and online co-op play.
