    The bottom line is that you must have this game. Even though it has a light story, even though it doesn't have much to offer solo players, PSO is a brilliant game--and what's more, it's a promise of amazing things to come in the Dreamcast's final days and in Sega's new future.

    The graphics, particularly the character models and animation, are stunning. The fighting is both strategic and intense, fun to watch and fun to play.

    I feel that in spite of the few omissions, with its incredibly tight control, beautiful graphics, and excellent multiplayer modes, F355 Challenge takes the crown for best Dreamcast racer yet, and is a strong contender for best sim racer of all time!

    From the second you turn on your Dreamcast, you'll realize you're stepping into a game world like no other, and you may never want to leave.

    I loved Shenmue. But as great as I thought that game was, nothing could have prepared me for Shenmue II.

    With it's innovative full 24-hour racing mode, beautiful graphics, solid control, and tons of details, Le Mans finds itself in the company of the finest racers gamers have ever seen.

    A masterpiece of online gaming.

    A solid final online title for the Dreamcast, and offers some insane party-game enjoyment, despite the fact that you have to pay for online play. However, the game is quite inexpensive, and is available at most stores for only $29.95, which might allow you to shell out for two months of online gaming.

    One of the best 2D fighters ever made...It’s got everything you could want: nice graphics, spot on control, solid play mechanics, and it’s loads of fun to play. It’s nice to have a fighting game that requires some real strategy.

    Giga Wing 2 takes pride in the details. With a higher resolution and an impressive 3D engine, the graphics look much sharper than any shooter on the Dreamcast console.

    If you're satisfied with updated rosters, win-loss records online, and some tweaks to an already excellent AI, this is the game for you. If you were expecting NFL2k2 to go out with the mother of all bangs on the Dreamcast, you may be mildly disappointed.

    If you do plan on going online with NBA 2k2 keep in mind that it might be convenient to have a Dreamcast keyboard handy, when setting up a game. It makes communication much easier.

    The pacing of the game may have you dozing off at times, but with a little persistence you will find one of the most underrated games of 2001.

    For somebody who doesn't play many shooters and is not "hardcore," I had a blast with Bangai-O... It does what it sets out to do very well.

    A great game whose worst flaw is that it's dumbed down just a bit too much for its own good.

    The battle system surpasses that of any other RPG on the market, and you'll be going out of your way to hunt down innocent little monsters and deliver them to their final reward.

    It's fun and replayable -- what more could anyone want?

    You simply need to keep giving Seaman a few minutes of your time each day, and you'll be rewarded with a freak show the likes of which you've never seen.

    if you're looking for an accurate match-up between the two companies, forget it. For the rest of us though, Capcom just delivers some good, old-school 2-D fighting action, and we all need some of that.

    A phenomenal game. The controls are easy to learn but offer enough depth to satisfy the most hard-core sports gamer. Graphically, the game is stunning.

    A quality puzzle game with lots of replayability, tons of gameplay modes, and a nifty theme that's great for kids and adults alike.

    This is without a doubt one of the best 3D platformers I have ever played on the Dreamcast, or on any other console for that matter.

    The result is something that comes close to being a masterpiece for its uniqueness within the racing genre and the sheer fun of its gameplay.

    The graphics and depth are sure to please even the most critical racing fan.

    The way Acclaim brought freestyle biking to a console is just awesome. While Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX is not perfect, it has enough good aspects in it to overlook the little bad things.

    A great game. It takes everything you loved about the first game and adds even more. The new courses are great, and the addition of the Crazy Hop does wonders in terms of opening up the gameplay.

    As a sequel that improves on the original and gives experienced players a reason to shell out another $40, Tennis 2K2 is a smashing success. I think I just made a tennis pun, but I'm not sure.

    A good game, and it does offer new online gameplay, unfortunately you'll have to pay a monthly fee to access any of it.

    Despite the niggling flaws (mostly carried over from the PC version), Quake III Arena is a first-rate title for the Dreamcast, and probably the best PC-to-console FPS port yet.

    It's going to be a long time until Capcom, or anyone else, manages to top it.
