    ohhhhhh fuck ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, not off to a good start.


    it arrived , nice packaging ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, felt nice build quality ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, but there was a kind of burn mark recess in part of the plastic ,,,,,, hmmmm ?? .

    switched it on ,,,,,,,,, and the first thing that hits you is the quality of the screen , pin sharp and bright ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, streets or rage 2 looks hd , ,,,,,,,,,,,, i cant convey just how superb the screen is. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, the sound is tinny and crap though ,,,,, pointless without headphones ,,,,,,,,,, with headphones its top notch. ,,,,,,,,,, control is superb though and not a hint of processor slowdown even with many enemies on screen etc.


    but ,,,,,,,,,,,,, (and this doesn't bode well for the company ) ,,,,,,,,, at least 7 of the 18 built in games didn't load ,,nothing whatsoever just a blank screen ,,,,,,,,,,,, and when you try collums it loads alien storm instead lol.

    this coupled with the burn mark ,obviously a duff unit ,,,,,,,,,, so rang em up and sent it back , awaiting a replacement .


    so despite the initial plus points ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, i would hold back ordering one , until i get my replacement . ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, i'll do a full review then , and try the memory card option etc.

    ok ,,,,,,,,,,,,, this unit is perfect ,,,,,,,,,,,, every game runs perfect ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, there is no slowdown whatsoever ,,,,,,,



    ok ,,,,,,,,, the screen as previously stated is awesome ,,,,,,,,,,, i cant stress enough just how pin sharp it is ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,, most people when they had the original megadrive , connected it up using the in-pack rf tv ariel ,,,,,,, which was very low res and fuzzy , but hey 99% of us knew no better and thought it looked great for the time ,,,,,,,,,, only a few people would have opted for a seperate component cable at extra cost,,,,,,,,,,,,, this screen reflects that quality ,,,,,,,,, it gives all the games you remember a fresh coat of paint ,,,, theres no motion blur, and makes everything look superb almost hd ,,,,


    the sound however is pathetic ,,,,,,,,,,, weedy , and distorts at full volume through the tinny mono speaker ,,,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,, plug some headphones in though and its superb .



    the controls are ok ,,,,,,,,,,, but seem rather small and fiddly for large adult digits ,,,,,,,,, its something you will get used to , and all 6 action buttons are very responsive ,,,,,,,,, the dpad is fine for most games ,,,,,,,,,,, but i did have some trouble with it rolling out fireballs in streetfighter 2 . ,,,,,,,,, hmm ?


    theres 18 built in games ,,,,,,,,,, with some genuine classics spread across the genres ,,,,, higlights for me are super streetfighter 2 , streets of rage 1 and 2 ,,,,, and shadow dancer,,,,,,,,,, theres enough here to keep everyone entertained ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, but thats not why you bought this version is it ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, you bought it for the sd card expansion port .


    so ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, im pretty pissed off at this point ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, i cant find the sd card full of 950 supposed roms ide bought some months ago ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,ive turned the flat upside down to no avail ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, so as yet cant review this aspect .

    im gonna send off for another on ebay (around 8.99) ,,,,,,,,,,, and sods law states that as soon as i pay for it ,,,,, i'll find the other one .


    in the meentime im gonna try to download a cpl to a spare sd card and see how that pans out ,,,,,,,,,,,,, watch this space .



    overall despite fiddly controls and a crap speaker , this is a very very worthwhile purchase for retro video game nerds like myself ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, made up by the wonderful screen and versatility of the sd card expansion ,,,,,,,,,, allowing you access to every game ever made for the system (around 1000) for around 50 all in ............. top buy and highly recommended.

    Trayhop, i may have missed it in your posts - but whats the script with games that need a memory?
    Loved adventure / RPG games on the mega, such as Shining force 1 and 2, Dradon force, Sgining in the darkness, etc, etc. Is there a built in memory for this sort of game?

    Thanks
