    While it has all the makings of a great game, its ho-hum presentation, standard graphics and gameplay, missing online play and overall lack of innovation make this a game to pass on if you can.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    A pretty good game and something that I would recommend any horror fan to play.

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

    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.

    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.
    • 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.

    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
    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.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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.

    "But there is no joy in Mudville -- Visual Concepts has struck out."
    • 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.
    • 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.

    Death Crimson OX dies the slow death of mediocrity. While no single element of the game is horrible, none of it is good either.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    Sets a standard for AI programming, and it's a good game... if you like raising and training virual pets... Don't be surprised if you complete the game in one sitting.
    • 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.

    The gore alone will keep you entertained at first, but once you discover the game's detailed graphics and subtle effects you'll be hooked.

    While it may look like Tempest, and sound like Tempest, it just ain’t Tempest.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A game that has some problems, but its great storyline, great characters, and trmendous amount of humor moves its minor gameplay flaws into the shadows.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    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.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    A masterpiece of online gaming.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    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.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 65 Critic Score
    It isn't that the game isn't solid and fun. It's just that most players will wonder why they didn't just stick a couple of bucks in the arcade machine instead.

    Whatever its shortcomings may be, Project Justice remains an incredibly entertaining game, bubbling over with personality and humor.

    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.
