    A really sad collection that's just trying to milk money out of the Dreamcast brand and nostalgia.

    Dreamcast Collection is an odd hodge-podge of games. Sonic Adventure is nearly unplayable, while Sega Bass Fishing is simply boring. The remaining games, Space Channel 5: Part 2 and Crazy Taxi, are not strong enough elevate this collection by themselves.

    A lazy, irritating, muddled mess of a package. Despite a degree of enjoyment to be found in the serene arena of Sega Bass Fishing, none of the four games on offer have any right being here.

    With the Dreamcast Collection, Sega finds yet another way to disappoint their fans. Instead of releasing a comprehensive disc full of must-own games, this once-mighty company chooses four games at random. Throw in some questionable design decisions (like not being able to switch games without exiting the disc) and you have one of the worst compilations I've played in years!

    A really small collection without any of the greatest Dreamcast Games. Space Channel 5: Part 2 and Crazy Taxi may be interesting if you haven't played them before (or the far superior sequels to Crazy Taxi). But they good games are cheaper to buy via Xbox Live Arcade directly instead.

    Overall, the Dreamcast Collection is best left to the bargain bins and flea markets. While it is enjoyable to go down memory lane one last time, this Dreamcast Collection is anything but a definitive Dreamcast Collection.

    Way to make a good first impression, Sega. 4 games- two of which are already on xbla/psn, a sequel to a series no one in north america has played before, and....a fishing game. Without the fishing controller that made it fun (at the time). Of all the awesome DC games that Sega made they choose these. Pathetic. Full Review »

    How can Sega call four games a collection? How can this represent the amazing feat that was the Sega Dreamcast?
    To release content that was
    already available on XBLA was either an incredibly stupid move or a greedy one. Lets hope that Sega rectifes this abomination and gives us something that will truey give this console the great respect it deserves. Full Review »

    Ugh. This was such a goddamn let down. The games on them were great, sure. But the fact that the ONLY new thing on the ENTIRE DISC was a crappy menu with low-res backgrounds and rehashed music was a real kick to where you find it hurts. There's not even any new achievements. They all have their XBLA achievements, and Crazy Taxi has the same awards. I thought I was just thinking oddly, but when I got bored of SEGA Bass Fishing I wanted to quit and try another. Only thing is; quitting a game quits the DISC. That's when it hit me - these games ARE their XBLA titles. Not even a single new thing, just a menu. A downright **** one.

    If you can't get the internet, and you want some XBLA goodness, give this a shot. You MIGHT enjoy a couple of these games.

    If you have Xbox Live; get those instead!
