Sonic 1 (SMS) is much better in PAL mode. At 60Hz, the Master System simply can't keep up with fast-moving action (no Blast Processing™ back then).

With regards to NTSC/PAL resolutions, a lot of consoles didn't even bother with the extra height PAL offered - SMS games pretty much only ever used 256x192 (32x24 tiles) even though it had a higher resolution comparable to the Mega Drive's 256x224 mode, they just left the rest of the screen blank (the fan remake of Megaman 2 on Master System uses 256x224 mode). The same thing happened with Mega Drive games, they stayed with 224p and just ran the games slower (with most of the ROMs being completely unchanged from the original Japanese or US versions, or with a different region lock added as per Wily Wars vs. Rockman Mega World), which had a side effect of making everything look letterboxed just like the SMS. Playing Sonic on a PAL Mega Drive feels ridiculously slow after playing the "Genesis" version on an emulator.

I strongly believe forcing 50Hz mode on PAL region video games (or even television for that matter) was completely unnecessary, even back in the Atari 2600 era. Just about any "50Hz" PAL TV made since the 1970s can handle 60Hz without the screen rolling. I had absolutely no trouble running NTSC games on my chipped PS1 (which of course meant it was in PAL60 mode though, not NTSC colours), the screen never rolled when going from 50Hz to 60Hz and back, and that was a woodgrain television from 1981 (AWA, which had a Mitsubishi chassis and tube) with no inputs aside from a 300 ohm aerial socket. Now, if I used my PS2 on that TV instead, it would simply go black and white in 60Hz mode because they blatantly lied about "PAL60" - the console always uses NTSC colours in 60Hz mode regardless of the region (unlike the GameCube which actually did output PAL60 and therefore in colour).
