Sega Dreamcast Collection (360)

Written by Freelancer on . Posted in Video Games

{tab=Overview} A collection of four classic Sega Dreamcast games on one disc. Play all your favorites including Sonic Adventure, Space Channel 5, Crazy Taxi, and Sega Bass fishing! Take I ride on the nostalgia train! {tab=Review} Sega's Dreamcast collect is basically four of their xbox live arcade titles in disc form. As you can expect, these are all Dreamcast game ports. Two of the four games are terribly awful, unfortunately one of those games is a 3D sonic game.

Sonic Adventure is a decent looking game, with terrible controls. For the time these graphics were state of the art, and had the "How could we do better?" feel to them, but that doesn't cover up the fact that if you bump your analog stick, sonic instantly jumps in the direction. The controls seem to be a "on-off" set up. There is no in between! This is a typically modern day Sonic game... Terrible.

Now from something bad, to something worse. Space Channel 5 Part 2, is a beat game. You tap the button when the icon pops on the screen, and it will supposedly want you to tap it in time. Being a 'Musician', I think I have decent rhythm, not according to this game! It either wants you to be 100% perfect, with no room for error, or it is just a terrible game. The Graphics are weak, and the 'story' is almost non existant.

Finally a decent game, Crazy Taxi is a cult favorite. You drive a taxi as one of three characters. They do have different stats, but I really didn't notice a difference. You basically pick some random person up, from the side of the street, then get them to their destination asap. Getting air, almost getting hit, and sliding gets you bonus cash. The controls are up to standards of today's games, but it is still a very fun game.

Sega Bass fishing is the last game in the collection. It really is just a fishing game, that at the time looked really good. Basically, you choose a fishing spot, then you move your fisherman on a pivot around the fishing hole. Cast off, fight with fish, then pull them out of the water. The controls are good, and it does exactly what it set out to do.

Rating: 8.5/10

In conclusion, the collection doesn't completely suck, but I would avoid half of it. Stick to Crazy Taxi, and Sega Bass fishing if you are looking for a good time, and go with Sonic Adventure and Space Channel 5 if you are looking to playing terrible games. From what I can tell all of the games are solid reboots.
