    It's a little small, and most of it is available individually through XBLA or Steam, but what's here is gold.

    Like I mentioned earlier, don't expect anything here in terms of features. This disc is truly just an excuse to sell these titles at retail.

    The Dreamcast Collection makes us appreciate the previously released Mega Drive Collection all the more, though not to be scoffed at, it contains four of the Sega Dreamcast's classic titles, and is no doubt an essential purchase for Sega fans without Xbox Live access.

    Dreamcast Sampler would have been a more apt title. After putting together the wonderful Ultimate Genesis Collection and the stellar Sega Ages line, it's hard not to feel like Sega dropped the ball with Dreamcast Collection.

    At the current price, this is a horrendous deal. [Issue#70, p.92]

    Although the quality of at least three of the four games included is unquestionable, the Dreamcast Collection suffers from the lack of a real optimization, especially from a technical standpoint, that disfigures in comparison with many other recent remakes.

    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!

    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!

    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. Collapse

    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. Expand
