Sega fact sheet:
Comix Zone
Year Released: 1995
With his blond ponytail and tiny sunglasses, comic book artist Sketch Turner is as hip as they come. But all the hipness in the world won't help him when his own creations turn against him. Mortus, the main villain in Sketch's comic book comes to life after a bizarre thunderstorm. Unable to harm Sketch in the real world, Mortus blasts the artist into his own comic book, where he must fight off Mortus' army of mutant warriors. When he lands in his post-apocalyptic comic world, Sketch befriends Alissa Cyan, who leads a resistance against the mutants and gives Sketch mission briefings as he fights. Since the action takes place in a comic book, the characters' banter appears in word bubbles, and Sketch hops across comic panels to enter the next area.

Did You Know?
- Comix Zone's score was composed by Howard Drossin. Drossin had previously written the music to Sonic The Hedgehog™ 3 and Sonic & Knuckles™.

Golden Axe
Year Released: 1989
The evil Death Adder has invaded your land, and he's taken the king and princess prisoner. Three mighty warriors step forward to bring the villain to justice. The powerful fighter, Ax Battler, the female amazon, Tyris Flare, and the mighty dwarf, Gilius Thunderhead, will use their weapons and magic to fight their way through Death Adder's hordes. Along the way, they'll mount fearsome, fire-spitting beasts to help even the odds. For a different challenge, see how far you can get in Duel mode, where you face off against Death Adder's forces in twelve different rounds or take on Death Adder Jr. in Beginner mode.

Did You Know?
- The SEGA Mega Drive™ version of Golden Axe™ has more levels than the arcade version.
- The warrior hero of Golden Axe™ starred in his own SEGA Game Gear® game called Ax Battler: A Legend of Golden Axe.

Golden Axe II
Year Released: 1991
Years have passed since the defeat of the wicked Death Adder. The peace won't last forever, however, as a new threat has appeared. In ancient times, Dark Guld, The Lord of Darkness, and his forces destroyed entire countries and brought the world into chaos. He was finally imprisoned, but after all this time he has finally found a way to escape. It is now up to the three brave warriors who defeated Death Adder to return to battle and send Dark Guld back where he came from. The spritely Elves and their magical potions may be missing in this sequel, but all the action of the original has returned.

Did You Know?
- Golden Axe™ II was a SEGA Mega Drive™ exclusive title. It didn't originate as an arcade game.
- The Duel mode from the original is back in Golden Axe™ II. In 1994, SEGA® expanded on the concept when it produced Golden Axe™: The Duel, a one-on-one fighting game for the SEGA Saturn™.

Golden Axe III
Year Released: 1993
Chaos is spreading across the land once again as the Prince of Darkness arises to conquer the world. To stop him and retrieve the legendary Golden Axe, four heroes step forward to accept the challenge. Gilius Thunderhead, the dwarf fighter from the previous Golden Axe adventures, sits this quest out and acts as an advisor to the new team. Joining past warriors, Ax Battler and Tyris Flare, are a man-panther, who has mastered the magic of fog, and a hulking barbarian with the power to manipulate stone. Multiple branching paths allow you to take this journey several times and experience new battles.

Did You Know?
- In 1992, SEGA® produced an arcade game called Golden Axe™: The Revenge of Death Adder. It is an entirely different game from Golden Axe™ III.

It's the same filter the XBLA versions used, and it could be turned off in that. I don't know why anyone ever thought you wouldn't be able to now. Personally, I don't really mind it though, these images make it look far worse than it actually is.

I got a PS3 if I want to play BC games (which I dont), and that is why I said I want a next-gen version, could be the better one.

PS. I havent played the PS2 version, but whatever.

It's almost as ridiculous as Square wanting $40 for Chrono Trigger, when you can so easily get it online for free.

These should be in packs as PSN/XBLA titles.

Either that or SEGA should actually do a Capcom style HD remake of the better ones, starting with the original Sonic.

Hmm..I already have emulation and many of these titles were never that great, some old games do actually become pretty obsolete.

No it's a great game. Severely underrated. It's really challenging and has great arcade style action.

as for these types of collections, is there really any need? I mean...just release them separately on XBLA so people can pick their favorites instead.

I second that. It takes a certain character to play it though, it's insanely hardcore.

It is there. I bet your eyes were just wishing it to be in release date order... I think someone decided it would be funny to put it:

Sonic 3D Blast
Sonic and Knuckles <------------------------------------- Here!
Sonic Spinball
Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Sonic the Hedgehog 3

For whatever reason.
