Sega Genesis Mini

Engadget Review

The Genesis Mini isn’t just a cash-in on the retro mini console craze. It’s a carefully considered package that serves as both a nostalgia machine and a preserver of some of the rarer titles to feature on Sega's console. Solid emulation and a collection of 42 mostly good games make it a must-have for Sega fans and a worthy diversion for anyone interested in 16-bit gaming.
