    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!

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

    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.
