View Full Version : Included games ports only?

Are the games on this comp ports only? No HD like their arcade versions? If so, that kind of stinks.

It would be awesome if they were the actual arcade versions, and you could get their achievements at the same time as the disc based ones...

You realize only 2 or 3 games out of the total of over 40 are on the Live Arcade? And I don't think those were HD.

As far as I am aware, Alien Storm, Altered Beast and a few others are arcade ports NOT Megadrive

I remember it being mentioned in the trailer for this compilation that the games were upscaled to 720P so if that counts as a 'HD makeover' then yes...

In reality it will probably be the choice of "original" or "improved" on each game with the latter having blockier but generally smoother edges.

I own a SEGA classics collection on the PS2 in which they actually did attempt to fully upgrade the graphics on each game - in most cases just adding polygon type sprites etc. Very mixed results!

you can save whenever and there is artwork and game history, no online multiplayer which is gay
