No they don't. I think you have to mod something for them to run.

You can make an iso of the game and then patch, with a program called SCDConv, it to become a euro version. burning the iso should fix the problems

Yep, you may use SCDConv, BUT .... many games refuse to work properly after patching (sound hangs, game crashes etc.)

I tried with about 7 games and only 2 work without a problem on my PAL MegaCD II

But most games appear on EBay anyway, and they arenīt too expensive (PAL Versions)
