    Ends up being a quirky gem in the Dreamcast catalog thanks to rock-solid gameplay, great graphics, and a loopy sense of humor. Best of all, players are guaranteed to see improvement in their typing if they log some time into the game.

    If "GoldenEye" was the Sean Connery of Bond games, and "Tomorrow Never Dies" was George Lazenby, then The World Is Not Enough is a likable Roger Moore--showing its age, in it for the money, and prone to bouts of slowdown, but still sporting that old Bond magic.

    This game not only has everything that an add-on pack should have -- fresh units, a new campaign, and new multiplayer maps and modes -- but it has one thing that most don't: a goose-egg price tag.

    The focal points of the game, the fish, are simply stunning. With fluid animations; bright, clear textures; and a nice reflective sheen, they're very convincing virtual fish.

    The premise is twisted, and the game looks hauntingly beautiful; if only it weren't lacking in a few key gameplay areas, it would easily be one of the most fun, interesting, and memorable games of the last few years.

    Paradigm has done an excellent job of re-creating a cartoon universe with colorful characters, hilarious animation, and eye-popping visuals that are fun for all ages.

    As a patch it would be near-perfect; it successfully addresses several key concerns, adds one seriously compelling new element, and generally turns a very good racing experience into an exceptional one. Certainly, this is the game EA should have released in the first place.

    Although the game may look like a kids' title, Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers has enough depth and challenge to keep even the most seasoned gamer busy.

    This game whips "Sydney 2000" for overall fun, graphics, and playability, and "Virtua Athlete 2000" in depth.

    Showcasing incredible gameplay, fabulous animations and an unthinkable amount of playable characters, Marvel vs. Capcom 2 shows us why it's a good time to be a Dreamcast owner.

    The levels are well designed, and the game's weapons are damn cool and pack a real punch.

    A weird combination of action, puzzle solving, and strategy that is freakishly fun.

    May feel more like a classic Bond Marathon on TBS, rather than the instant-gratification spy movies we have seen in recent years.

    UFC doesn't KO the rest of the Dreamcast's brawling lineup as the best title on the system, but its solid fighting-game engine and distinct mixture of realistic fighting styles and brutal moves make it one fun, tough customer.

    Yeah, Giants has its flaws, but it's one of the most competent -- and clever -- action games we've laid our hands on,

    With more than 50 WWF superstars, a fantastic array of matches, and unparalleled, blisteringly fast gameplay, it's the only squared-circle brawler you need to buy. Anything else, especially the horrendous "WCW Backstage Assault," isn't worth your time.

    The graphics in Ridge Racer V are definitely the game's strong point--most notably, the frame rate. The game runs at a blinding 60 frames per second, which is near TV quality.

    A refreshing change of pace from the usually horrid Army Men franchise thanks to its top-notch action, improved mission structure, cleaner visuals, and added multiplayer elements.
