    There's enough skaters, objectives, levels, and secrets to unlock to keep you going for weeks, if not months, and even after you've mastered the entire game, you'll be coming back for more.

    Pick this game up today and you'll still be playing it months from now, without ever once feeling bored. How many games can you say that about?

    The only thing missing is internet multi-player capability, but you can't have everything, can you...

    Fortunately, once the graphics have convinced you to pick up the gamepad and try it out, the controls in "Virtua Tennis" will keep you hooked for a long, long time.

    One of the most popular arcade games of all time, and now Dreamcast owners can experience the best version of the game yet. Sega's flagship racer has arrived in style.

    2K1 looks very similar graphically to last year's version, but the much improved running game, new franchise mode, and the addition of online gaming set it worlds apart from the original.

    If Jet Grind Radio doesn't walk away with Game Of The Year honors this year, it certainly deserves the award for being the most original in both graphics and gameplay.

    The graphics may be a little sharper and more detailed in "Quake III Arena," but UT's added gameplay features and 8-way multiplayer action more than make up for it.

    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.

    Four players isn't quite enough to maintain the excitement level of the PC version.

    Within the first five minutes of playing the Dreamcast version, I was convinced I had found my new favorite racer of all time, and now countless hours later, that feeling is etched in stone.

    It may not appeal to everyone due to it's highly "over-the-top" style, but it's all about fun, colors, fun, special effects, and more fun.

    PSO isn't about the offline experience. It's about taking the game online, which is incredibly fun. The online and offline modes are as different as night and day.

    A perfect blend of simple fighting action and sports simulation, and some of the most realistic looking and moving fighters around.

    Games like this, where the graphics take a back seat to the gameplay, are few and far between these days, but Treasure, much like Sega, knows that gameplay is everything.

    Bring some friends over for some 4-way gaming action and you won't find a more entertaining and addicting game on the Dreamcast.

    The graphics in SA2 are truly next generation material, and Sonic's stages have never been faster or more intense.

    The old, dated look to the series is gone, and what we've got here is a 2D fighter that not only plays great, but looks great as well. You can't go wrong with that combination.

    An excellent collection of some of the greatest games released in the past decade, and will become a must-have for all Sega fans once it becomes available separately from the system bundle.

    All those annoying low resolution blocks and jagged edges from the PSX system have been cleaned up and smoothed out, and the game's resolution is now twice as high as it was before.

    Obtaining the various drivers licenses alone requires near perfect driving skills, and you'll need to be able to drive these courses with your eyes closed if you hope to win the races.

    • 88 Critic Score
    The graphics will instantly grab your attention, but it's slow pace and poor sense of speed may turn you off just as quickly, and you may not stick with it long enough to experience all of it's finer points.

    • 79 Metascore

    The game's control is dead on, and if you think it still needs a little tweaking, you can adjust the brakes and steering to your liking.
    • AllDreamcast
    • 60 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    With graphics and gameplay that are equally good, non-stop action and tight controls, load time between levels that's almost non-existent, and a really cool horror-movie theme, beat-em' up games just don't get any better than this.
    • AllDreamcast
    • 82 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    The game's "more of the same" feel will ultimately prevent it from achieving the same status as the original, but when the original was so much fun, "more of the same" can't possibly be bad.

    Definitely worth a purchase. Now if only Spiderman could defeat Sega and bring an end to its evil plan to end production of the world's greatest game system.

    Bizarre Creations obviously took the gameplay very sriously, but tossed in enough humor to keep a smile on your face, at least until you realize you're completely lost and start desperately wandering around trying to figure out what to do.

    Really meant for diehard fans of the series only. The rest of us can probably do without this one.

    Playing "Ecco" is like transforming your room into a submersible underwater vehicle, with your tv screen being your window into the ocean depths.

    Definitely the new best fishing game on the Dreamcast, thanks to it's wider variety of fish over "Bass Fishing," as well as all it's extras that give it solid replay value, another aspect missing from "Bass Fishing."

    To paraphrase one of my favorite lines from the movie Jurassic Park, "There are... um, Disney characters, in this... uh, Disney game, right?"

    Far from perfect, but as a virtual pet simulation, it's the best of it's kind.

    It's definitely not a bad game, just very short, even by arcade standards. But if all you're looking for is a fun shooter, Cannon Spike delivers the goods.

    One of the nice things about Star Wars Demolition, at least for those of us who don't take the Jedi religion seriously, is that the game is pure action, void of any of that Star Wars cheesiness and horribly lame dialog.
    • AllDreamcast
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    An excellent effort that no shooter fan should overlook. The gameplay is solid even if it is a little on the difficult side, the graphics are decent, it has excellent replay value, and the overall presentation is top notch.

    If historical accuracy isn't a big deal for you and you're willing to put up with an occasional boring mission, Iron Aces is worth a look.
    • AllDreamcast
    • 77 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    It's not the best racer on the system, but it's mix of racing with destruction derby action makes it one of the most unique racers the Dreamcast has to offer.

    It may be fun for a while as a rental, but it's certainly not worth buying, not when Daytona USA 2001 is right around the corner.

    • 70 Critic Score
    The various modes of play and excellent multiplayer aspects do a good job of keeping things fresh, but sooner or later, you'll find it tough not to look at NBA Hoopz as tired and cheap, and that dreaded "been there, done that" feeling will rear it's ugly head.

    Sega has the lightgun shooter formula down to perfection with Confidential Mission as you're bombarded by terrorists coming at you from every direction with guns blazing.

    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The graphics are everything we've come to expect from Sega's Naomi-based arcade games, and the ultra-fluid frame rate makes up for any realism the graphics may be lacking. But unless the arcade experience at home is enough for you, 18 Wheeler will ultimately leave you disappointed.

    A flawed game, but much better than the PSX version, and even with it's problems, anyone who loves Star Wars or action games will enjoy it.

    • 65 Critic Score
    At a bargain price of only $19.99 US, you won't be disappointed, at least not with the graphics. You won't have any complaints with the soundtrack either, as each stage has its own unique, fully orchestrated musical score. The game's length and replay value are another story though.

    One glaring problem made even more apparent by the Royal Rumble match is the game's character selection, or lack of.

    D2
    An almost complete lack of gameplay, very cheesy dialog, and a whole lot of boring repetition keep Kenji Eno's latest creation from being anything more than a complete dud, which could be what the D stands for (just kidding... I think).

    With its sluggish controls, odd collision detection problems, quirky gameplay mechanics, slow pace, and lousy camera angles, Illbleed may succeed at being an interesting idea but fails at transforming that idea into a worthwhile game.

    You'd probably have more fun dusting off your old Genesis or SNES system and popping in "Castle Of Illusion." You'll get the exact same gameplay as DDGC, without all the added disappointment.

    The graphics are much improved, but it's still the same ol' tired gameplay of button mashing.

    • 58 Critic Score
    The control and camera angles are both horrible, the graphics are N64 quality at best (which is not what you'd hope for from a game based on the "Toy Story" license running on a 128-bit system), the missions are simple and repetitive, and even the humor and charm of the "Toy Story" movies are missing.

    All the elements are here for what could have been an above-average arcade racer, but the developers left out the most important aspect of any racing game - the excitement.

    With the exception of the graphics, Sonic Shuffle does everything wrong. Don't be fooled by the visuals. Even fans of Sonic (and I'm one of them) will be extremely disappointed.

    Having this game on the Dreamcast is an insult, and Acclaim needs to know that we won't put up with this type of garbage. Stay away from Jeremy McGrath Supercross 2000 at all cost. It's not worth even thinking about.

    Easily the biggest problem with Charge 'N Blast is that it has zero replay value. The only thing that was added to the home version was a Time Attack mode where you can see how fast you can make it through each level. Wow, I'm excited.

    This is yet another insult to Dreamcast owners, and no one should have to suffer through it. Ducati World Racing Challenge is racing at it's absolute worst.
