    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, butUgh. This was such a goddamn let down.

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!

    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.

    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.

    The four games in this collection may not be the most famous out of the Dreamcast line-up, but they cover a broad field of game types. If you can overlook the awful main menu, you get a lot of good games for just a few bucks.

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

    The lack of actual Dreamcast versions, the utterly pointless inclusion of Sega Bass Fishing, the nonexistent nostalgic extras and the lack of effort in presentation all make Dreamcast Collection an unfaithful representation of the glorious Dreamcast era.
