5 Best Sega iOS Games
Sega is doing what Nintendon't. They're releasing games on the App Store and making a bunch of dough — everything from ports of their classic titles to new games like Jack Lumber. Nintendo refuses to do anything that may seem like competition to its own handheld system, but we don't care. Not when Sega is giving us great stuff like Virtua Tennis and Sonic the Hedgehog. Let's take a look at the 5 best Sega games in the App Store that you should be playing. SEGA!
Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition
A big update for Super Monkey Ball 2 gives fans the Sakura Edition featuring six worlds, 125 stages, four monkeys to choose from and a bunch of mini-games. The graphics are gorgeous, but if you're not a tilt master then your poor monkey is going to be slipping on banana peels left and right as he falls off the track.
Golden Axe II
Why Golden Axe 2 and not Golden Axe or Golden Axe 3? Because Golden Axe 2 has new enemies and magic from the original. To be honest, you could go with the original Golden Axe or pick the sequel. Either one is side-scrolling awesomeness that retro gamers will enjoy. You could even pick up Streets of Rage if you don't like fantasy-type beat-em-ups. Just don't pick up Golden Axe 3. It blows.
This 5 best Sega games list seems like more of a retro list than anything else, but Sega's ports of their old classics are awesome, and Shining Force is another example of that. One of the greatest old-school RPGs plays beautifully on your iPhone and really takes you back to the time when you spent days in front of the TV while your parents yelled at you to go outside and be a normal human being. Stupid parents, what did they know.
Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing
I might have given this the #1 spot if the multiplayer didn't disconnect every single time I tried playing it. Despite these online woes, Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing is a fantastic kart game, with tons of tracks and cool weapons. If Nintendo wants to be lazy and not port Super Mario Kart over to the App Store, then so be it. Us gamers will be too busy playing this awesome Sega title to complain about it.
Our 10 Best Platforms Games winner also tops our 5 best Sega Games list. Why? Because it's an amazing port of arguably the best Sonic game ever made. Controls are spot on, the music is the best in the series and it's hours and hours of speedy Sonic goodness. Remind me to kiss everyone at the Sega booth at next year's E3.
