Dreamcast

Chu Chu Rocket! – Review

Though the conflict between cats and mice has been well-documented in storybooks and cartoons, there haven't been many videogames based on the subject (and the ones based on Tom and Jerry don't count). Once again showing what they can do when they're not bogged down by the Sonic franchise, Sonic Team has created an absolute masterpiece in Chu Chu Rocket!—a raucous cat-and-mouse affair that never grows tiresome.

Chu Chu Rocket! – Second Opinion

...it seems their creators spend so much time focusing on tightening the gameplay that they don't focus as much on the game's length, and this only hurts the game.

Resident Evil Code: Veronica – Second Opinion

As Resident Evil games go, Code: Veronica is familiar fare. If you loved the older games, youll love this even more with its suped-up graphics and sound. Myself personally, I am getting pretty sick of this series and if it werent for the fact that its making its debut on the Dreamcast, I would have panned it even more.

Resident Evil Code: Veronica – Review

Yet, the graphical wonder of Code: Veronica also becomes a lethal double-edged sword. While the presentation received a shot in arm and everything looks fairly realistic, the same can't be said of the gameplay mechanics, which has remained unbelievably ridiculous.

Resident Evil Code: Veronica – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood & Gore, Animated Violence

Resident Evil Code: Veronica

Game Description: Enter the world of survival horror with Resident Evil Code: Veronica. It’s up to you to help Claire Redfield escape from the penal colony that the Umbrella Corporation has put her in. The problem is, the prison is on an island, and there’s something strange happening on it: zombies are running rampant. You’ll have to solve puzzles, move crates, and shoot a lot of zombies as you try to make your escape. Great graphics, realistic cutscenes, and plenty of zombies result in the best game in the Resident Evil series yet.

Wild Metal: Reclaim The Future

Game Description: In Wild Metal, it is up to you to save mankind as you shred across enemy alien landscapes in your attack tank. Choose from one of five models, based on your opponents strengths and weaknesses and the landscape you'll be encountering. Embark on 21 levels as you avoid landmines, sentries, and other hazards in your quest to recover valuable power cores. With an extensive cache of ammo and the ability to fire the turret in almost any position desirable, you're sure to do some serious damage in Wild Metal.

Wild Metal: Reclaim The Future – Review

Wild Metal for Sega Dreamcast, however, would definitely pique my dad's interest. There's nothing complicated here—it's a 3D shooter that puts you in the driver's seat of a futuristic battle tank and lets you blow a lot of stuff up. While the game comes up short in some crucial areas, its tight focus on convincing tank warfare is enough to get Wild Metal noticed.

Wild Metal: Reclaim The Future – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Violence

Wild Metal: Reclaim the Future – Second Opinion

I have a fondness for games where simple, focused gameplay takes precedence over other aspects of a game. It's a trademark of DMA where graphics, sound and even plot take a backseat to the gameplay. One of my favorite games is a DMA title that was released on the Super Nintendo called Uniracers. There was no premise or plot, instead the whole objective was to race against other unicycles while performing tricks (similar to Nintendos Excitebike), and I loved it.
