    Samba de Amigo is a seminal title amongst the Dreamcast’s mighty games catalogue, a game that truly stands out. The best music game there is.
  2. Quite simply fantastic. The most universally appealing Dreamcast title yet.

    A brutally addictive, bizarrely entertaining game. I've never seen anything like it before, and it will haunt me for the rest of my days. But man, is it fun!

    A simple, yet incredibly fun game.
  5. It's different, distinctive, looks great, and has an infectious soundtrack to match the addictive gameplay.
  6. Sonic Team has worked their magic and put together a highly original, extremely fun game that anyone can play.
  7. Without the maracas, this game turns into a bad version of "Parappa the Rapper." A REALLY bad version.
