With the Sega Genesis Ultimate Portable Game Player in your hands from AtGames you can take with you classics like Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Alien Storm, Mortal Kombat and so much more.
I am a geek. I say it loud and proud, and you can share that with whoever you want. I dare you! Go ahead, share this post!

Whether you love vintage gaming because of the history, or just want to relive certain games of your past, why not have this to take with you on the go?
While it lists 85 games, only 40 of them are original Sega Genesis Games. While the other games might be a good distraction for children, die-hards like me would wish they were all original games.
Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle
Chakan: The Forever Man
Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine
ESWAT: City Under Seige
Golden Axe II
Golden Axe III
Mortal Kombat I
Mortal Kombat II
Mortal Kombat III
Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi
Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master
Sonic & Knuckles
Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic the Hedgehog II
Virtua Fighter II
It retains the 6-button set-up of the vintage controller so that you have the same play you remember when you tried it the first time.
With the ability to play more games if you have an optional SD card that you can load Sega Genesis games onto you can increase your gaming library by quite a bit.
Downsides? The sound quality could be better. I am not saying that it totally detracts from the playability of the games, but it would be nice to have a clearer sound.
Upsides? It’s portable. The Sega Genesis is part of vintage gaming history. Did I mention it’s portable? I love gadgets like this that can make waiting to see the doctor pass a little easier, or when you have downtime on vacation in the room, or just if you are out to beat your last high score on your favorite game.

This would make a great stocking stuffer! Or just wrap it and put it under the tree, grab one here today from Amazon. Or be greedy, get one for yourself, I know I would. ~Tom

Dolores Miranda says
I was a Sonic freak lol!!My daughter loves Sonic now and she makes Mama proud!!She would love this!!
Sandra McFadden says
I am not a fan of gaming consoles. I think in moderation they are great entertainment, but too many children and adults have problems putting the games down and enjoy their lives.
My kids would enjoy the Sega handheld the most and frogger is one of my favorites
Michelle Catallo says
As a parent with hearing issues and three kids, I kind of like that the sound is sub-par but, completely understandable why it would be a con LOL. My kids would thoroughly enjoy this game player and, I admit, I would sneak in some time too.
Betty Curran says
I’ve never been much of a gamer but I did play Sonic. It was always a lot of fun.
Betty Curran says
And I might even enjoy playing Sonic again.
Trisha McKee says
I understand that not all of them are original games and that is disappointing. But I am thrilled there are as many original games as there are! Such memories! I need to get this and indulge in the nostalgia.
kathy pease says
My husband would love this..My favorite Sega game of all time would be sonic the hedge hog
AMANDA STOVALL says
So cool & nostalgic! My kiddos would probably enjoy this the most but their father & I would most definitely love it too! I used to love playing Sonic & other retro games like Ms. Pac-Man. Thanks!
Danielle Fox says
My lil bro loved street fighter and several other games from Genesis. It was so much more than Sonic

Sega wasn’t ever my thing but my brother love playing the games! This is a great future gift idea for him. Though as we get older, the screen seems small to see well. LOL`
Allen Gibson says
Was always surprised that the sega never took off like other consoles. Compared to the others, the sega was a beast.
Kimberly Louise Brown says
I want one
Kathy Green says
Sega was a staple for my husband and I when we first started dating. We would play Sonic and then SNES all the time. My kids love the “retro” games. This looks like something my son would go nuts over.

My college age son is a huge gamer. He used to love Mortal Kombat and Sonic.

Very well written review! Thank you!

Eileen Richter says
I had no idea this was even a thing. GReat price! I like that you can use an SD card to add to your library. Wow…kind of reminds me of the old gameboys. I loved those toys for the kids!!!
Tracy DeLoach says
I have 2 nephews and a grandson who would be thrilled to have the Sega system. Shoot my grown son who drives long haul, would enjoy playing it during those long waits to unload.
I wish they would’ve brought more games to it. Also, I hope the battery life isn’t too bad, that would be a killer for me.
Allison Swain says
This looks awesome! My husband and I would love the Mortal combat and sonic games. Thanks for sharing!
Holly B says
My son loves any and all things gaming but I’m always so clueless. Thanks so much for the info!
Jessie Mohler says
Oh my gosh what a fun thing to share with the younger gen. I remember when this stiff came out how awesome.
Deborah W. says
I always wanted a Sega Genesis but only played at friends’ houses. I would love to play Sonic the Hedgehog again; so much fun! I have wondered about these ‘new’ yet old game systems and how they rated. Thanks for the review!
Cynthia C says
My kids played a lot of games on the Genesis console when they were young. I think my nephew might enjoy this.
Sarah Phillips says
I think my husband would enjoy this the most! I’m too young to remember the saga (born in 1993!), but he played the old Sega when he was young and reminisces about playing it even now. He’s mentioned “Chakan: The Forever Man” as being one of his favorites!
Darcy Koch says
So glad to read this review. I am considering buying one for my grandson for Christmas. It sounds like it’d be a worthwhile investment. The sound could be better I guess, but for him it’s fine.
Katie Bellamy says
This looks so fun! I want one for myself! 🙂
Linda Szymoniak says
Two of my daughters are big time gamers. They started very young, and in fact the Sega Genesis was one of the first game systems they played on. I know they would both love this!
Sara Zielinski says
I would enjoy this Sega Genesis portable game system. My favorite genesis game is probably the phantasy star series.
Tamra Phelps says
Both of my nephews would get a kick out of this. Sega Genesis was a little past my time, lol. Yep, I’m old enough to remember Atari & watching that silly ‘ball’ bounce back & forth on Pong! We were so amazed by that, lol. I do remember my little brother playing Sega, usually Sonic the hedgehog.
mary edwards says
This would be great for my 11yr old son. Especially on long car rides. I love that its small enough to take with us on trips.
stephanie bastien says
How awesome is the sega genesis ultimate portable game player!! I know my boys would be thrilled if this was under the tree and so much more convient becouse they can take it on the go while mommy needs to run errands so they wouldnt be arguing if they thier sister looked at them lol plus im a 90s baby so i wouldnt mind playing occasionally as well 😉
Rebbekka Howard says
Growing up we had the Game Gear. It looked a bit like this portable game player and the game I always loved most with Sega was Sonic the Hedgehog! That melody still rings inside my head from time to time ha-ha.
My son loves video games and this is something that he would love to play especially if we had to go on long trips. Sitting in a car can get a bit boring after a while.
James Robert says
This would be pretty cool to have for them long car rides with my kids. They all love gaming and they could do it in the car and keep busy. Then at home, dad could play as well.
April Monty says
So cool, I’d love to own one again, it’s got some of my favorite games as well
ellen beck says
I have always kinda wanted one of these. Ilike games but on the Sega system, I really have only played Sonic and thats about it. I have never had one of the consoles so just havent gotten into it.
It looks like a great little device to pass the time though which is a good thing at appointments.
Tom Shewbridge says
It is Ellen, thanks for the comment. If you know anyone that would like it, please share! ~Tom
