Sega Mega Drive Collection, known as Sega Genesis Collection in North America, is a compilation of several Sega games spanning several consoles. Included in the collection are 28 readily playable games and 5-6 unlockable games which are exclusive to each system. There are also several unlockable interviews from SEGA of Japan employees, a "museum" which features facts and strategies about the games, and unlockable arcade games.

The emulation of the games graphics have had a few problems, such as the screen flashing when Sonic goes underwater in the original Sonic the Hedgehog. The sound effects also have a few problems, such as when a Spin Dash is performed in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and the special stage music not playing. Additionally, the music doesn't change when the Power Sneakers are collected in either Sonic game. The Star Handle sound effect in Ristar is also different. Other games have also been noted for having sound effects that sound slightly different or don't play at all. Phantasy Star IV has a problem with the "Victory Music" not playing at the end of a battle.
