What's in the box?

  • Game
  • Instruction Manual
  • Warranty Card

Typical of many Sega Mega Drive games, this does not have much to show in the box. The manual is a single piece of folded paper printed in blue. It contains control information, info about the story and places to write down section codes. As there are so many different versions of this game available, this manual is not the only one and it differs depending on the console.

What about the game itself?

There's a lot that can be said about this game that has already been said before so I will keep it brief. The fact that it has been ported to so many different platforms shows its popularity. During its early releases the game was famous for its distinct style. The music and visuals were impressive and still hold up today thanks to their nostalgia. The controls can feel slow when you first play the game however it's not hard to adjust quickly. There are some impressive speed runs for this game and it has made appearances during events such as AGDQ. It is easy to find so if you are curious, check it out.
