  1. One of the most popular arcade games of all time, and now Dreamcast owners can experience the best version of the game yet. Sega's flagship racer has arrived in style.
  2. With a ton of options, gorgeous graphics running at consistently high framerates and plenty of tracks to choose from, the few niggling problems (like online lag and touchy controls) seem to slip away into meaningless babble in the heat of a close race.
  3. 100
    This is a classic, and we cannot recommend it to you any higher even if you are planning on ridding yourself of the Dreamcast and moving on to PlayStation 2 land.
  4. Each track looks great, and they are filled to the brim with hovering blimps, helicopters, city structures, and countless other details that just scream "Sega!"
  5. A fine home conversion; it's a beautiful, if shallow and short-lived, arcade racer.
  6. This one is packed full of race courses, new and old, classic and new cars, network action, and a heck of a lot of options.
  7. The only real criticism of this game is that it's an old title that we've seen in the home before. Still, though, this is a fantastic port, and the addition of net play adds a whole new dimension.
  8. 93
    Despite controls that are a bit touchy and online gameplay that can be awkward, Daytona USA 2001 is the true flagship racing game that we've been waiting for.

    Well, if my memory serves me correctly, Daytona 2001 is running on the Naomi board. This game is really nice. I saw this game in a arcade before, and two Daytona machines were hook up each other, allowing two player play. NICE!!! Full Review »
