Overall: 7

Welcome everyone to the Sega Smash Pack
A collection of games that may cause many to be taken aback.

There are no polygons, CG cinemas, or pathetic voice acting
Just good ol' simplistic gameplay, but none of it life-altering.

We have Ecco the Dolphin, Sonic Spinball, and Golden Axe
3 games that the Genesis is known for, all of them great to help you relax.

Let's look at Sonic Spinball
A game that's fit for y'all.

Sonic gets hit against a flipper
certainly not a way to make him seem hipper.

Then we have Golden Axe
An old school beat-em-up, a game in which no character wears slacks.

You'll take on Death Adder
But there are other games who's bosses are badder.

Ecco the Dolphin is atypical
A game that's very poetical.

You'll swim in a bunch of liquid
Always trying to avoid that damn squid.

The graphics have been ported well
Though you'll occasionally notice something that will make you say "holy hell!".

For instance, you'll see Golden Axe has a sky so dark
You'll think you'd be better off playing NARC.

Then you get to the horrible music
And you'll think it was coded by some trailer park hick.

If you don't already own any of these carts in their original form
It's OK since they are now multi-platform!

I'll close my review letting you know this
These games are mostly pure bliss.

Just know that not everything is the same
And these games now seem very tame.

This review may not be a very good rant
But it's still better than a "Santulli Slant."

[EDITOR'S NOTE: no it isn't. ;)]
