    There is so much gameplay in this disk, that it would really be a shame to miss it.

    If you persist and have the time to learn Ecco's massive levels, however, you'll find it immensely rewarding, especially once you reach Atlantis itself.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's a must-have if you bust your Dreamcast out at parties, but not a must-have for everyone's collection.

    The Street Fighter series continues to offer a depth of play that allows masters of the game to truly be masters. Anyone who considers themselves a fighting game fan should own this title.

    If nothing else, Typing of the Dead is kooky, fun and inventive, and a worthwhile addition to any Dreamcast enthusiast’s library. Uh, provided you own one of those keyboards.

    Vanishing Point remains a blazing fast, satisfying and addictive racing game. Unfortunately, before you can really enjoy it, you'll need to find a way to work around the trash AI.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Lots of hidden stuff to unlock, new levels, characters, and weapons. It is a fun, fast paced game, that is packed full of features and great online gameplay.

    It picks up from where "Quake III Arena" left off in terms of AI, on-line capabilities, and graphics
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    This game features superb graphics, a great soundtrack, detailed environments, and good control. And while there are a few problems with enemy AI and cheap weaponry, there is still a lot of fun to be had with this title.

    Whatever its shortcomings may be, Project Justice remains an incredibly entertaining game, bubbling over with personality and humor.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Although the length is a bit disappointing, "Another World" and the Agent Academy do help keep things interesting beyond the (very fun) main game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It delivers everything which made the original Resident Evil so fantastic but on a bigger and grander scale. At a budget price, it's difficult to go wrong with this unless you already own it on PSX.
    • 75 Metascore

    Because Mat Hoffman is based on the first Tony Hawk game, there are a lot of tweaks and additions that I believe will give "THPS2" fans a sense that something is missing.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Easily one of the better Dreamcast shooters behind "Gunbird 2" and "Bangai-O." Just be prepared to die. A lot. You'll get better in time.

    Graphically, Spider-Man is quite impressive. Treyarch, the company behind all of Neversoft's Dreamcast conversions, has outdone itself on this title.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The graphics are smooth and clean, the controls are tight, and the characters are pretty funny. It won't blow your mind, but it's good fun while it lasts.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It's a well done arcade shooter and the perfect game to toss in when you have some time to kill.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The lack of a true college feel and the bungling of the option may be enough to discourage many from playing what is otherwise a fine football game.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The feeling of surfing has never been realized so well, and the game itself is just a joy to play. If you're interested in a change of pace, consider picking this one up.

    A pretty good game and something that I would recommend any horror fan to play.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    It doesn't completely live up to its predecessor in all areas (ease of play, final boss), but in others (arena design, Adventure Mode) it's actually better.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    You can look past the aged graphics, there is a great survival horror title here to be had.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Daytona 2001 returns to the much truer arcade-style control, at the expense of that initial accessibility.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    It's a brilliant, well-executed game with a few nagging shortcomings that keep it from reaching its true potential.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    You get amazing graphics, good gaming music, and some arcade style gameplay that is fun for the casual gamer, but might leave feature-loving gamers looking for more.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    While this is not a perfect real-time strategy game, it is simplified enough that most hardcore Dreamcast fans will probably find it to be enjoyable, without having to worry about all of the problems, like resource management, that plagued some PC gamers.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    I really don't see me pulling it out to play as often as I'd like thanks mainly to a complete lack of levels. Razor Freestyle Scooter is a very good game, a solid game, but doesn't do enough to push it past simply being a distant "kiddie" Tony Hawk.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Critic Score
    Fun, simple, and another good reason for dial-up Internet users to get online with the Dreamcast, but AFO isn't going to win any awards for depth or longevity.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Bizarre neglected to focus on polishing MSR's overall driving experience. Not that MSR is a bad game, but there are at least a few other Dreamcast racers I would have to recommend before it. "Test Drive: Le Mans," anyone?

    Control and camera issues, and the strange stop-n-go gameplay that Illbleed sports may be too annoying to make people want to endure the game's six levels. If you can get past those problems, then you may find something that is actually pretty enjoyable.
