  1. Players who are ready to experience online racing with all the bells and whistles should purchase this title immediately. And if you hope to beat anyone, you'd better do it quickly. There are a lot of fierce competitors ready to chew you up and spit your humiliated carcass out.
  2. 90
    The game is a visual feast. If it controlled a little better this would be a perfect score, but as is, this game is still a hell of a good time.
  3. 88
    Just one big SINNIN' SANDWICH! You bite into that and Satan'll have you hooked faster than Michael Jackson on painkillers.
  4. While we've never actually driven a pickup or an old-school Cadillac, we would be willing to bet that it would be a lot easier to drive them in real life than it is in Speed Devils Online.
  5. Playable racer that's lifted above the herd by its online mode. A tad slow when racing on US servers, but the European version will hopefully be a treat.
  6. 72
    Overall, the betting options and character records make this a pretty compelling experience, and SDO is certainly the best online racer available for the Dreamcast at present.
  7. The online play takes this game over the top, as you no longer just win money from your game console's unlimited bank, but you actually get to grab it from other human racers.
  8. It's hardly frustration free, but there's enough payoff in Speed Devils Online to make it worth your time.
  9. 60
    This will gain friends more because of it's online compatibility than the quality of the actual game which is a very average and graphically unimpressive racer-by-numbers.
  10. It offers what other better-looking racers hint at, but have so far failed to deliver on Dreamcast: fast, playable and competitive head-to-head racing against four other players via online connectivity that seldom lags or gets disrupted.
