  1. 100
    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. We know it sounds weird and wild, but trust us, once you see the game in action you'll almost understand why it has, at times, totally dominated not only the Daily Radar office, but that of our parent company Imagine media as a whole.
  3. Quite simply fantastic. The most universally appealing Dreamcast title yet.
  4. 100
    Like "Mario Party," " Bust-A-Groove," and even "Tetris" and assorted Tetris-clones, Samba De Amigo forces you to have a good time despite the fact that you don't want to caught dead shaking a pair of plastic maracas in front of your friends.
  5. 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!
  6. Forget all that other FPS and Sports nonsense and just say a quick prayer to Sonic Team for delivering some Mexican mana from heaven.
  7. Once you see this game in action, you'll be begging to try it yourself, and that's when you'll be hooked. It's as simple as that.
  8. Good fun alone and an absolute riot in groups, you will have a tough time finding a music game that pleases like Sonic Team's colorful creation.
  9. 95
    A product that is so energetic, so imaginative, so enjoyable that one can't help but be a slave to the shake.
  10. 95
    Recent studies conducted by my crack team of scientists (*cough* The D-Spot Staff) show that it is physically impossible to not enjoy Samba De Amigo, no matter how good or bad you may be.
  11. A simple, yet incredibly fun game.
  12. The graphics back up the audio perfectly, and the result is the best-looking music/rhythm game ever released.
