Not Worth It. Genesis Collection Way Better!!
It's really a shame that SEGA gave us an awesome Genesis collection, but totally skimped on the Dreamcast Collection. They could have even raised the price to $59.99 and included Powerstones 1 & 2, Toy Commander, Shenmue 1 & 2, Jet Set Radio, Sega Rally 2, Phantasy Star, Seaman, Outtrigger, Virtual Cop 1 & 2, Fighting Vipers 2, Chu Chu rockets, Blue Stinger and Daytona USA 2001. If they had include even 1/2 of these games, it would be worth it, but Sega decided to give us the most lackluster games and what's worse, they are already on XBLA. Sega needs to go back to the drawing board and try again. I won't buy this. Most hardcore collectors won't waste there time either.
Missing Some Key Games!
When I saw the Dreamcast Collection, I was instantly excited. The Sega Dreamcast was a decent console with some great games, and I thought it would have been awesome to replay them.
However, they missed several of the best and most important games and replaced them with a fishing sim. WHY!?
No Shenmue, no Jet Grind Radio, no Power Stone, and no Soul Calibur. If they replaced the fishing sim with any one of these games, it would be worth a purchase, but now, its iffy.
Great to see Sega bringing some Dreamcast classics to a new generation. But some odd pairings made in this collection.
Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi are excellent choices. Definitely some favorites amongst Dreamcast fans.
However, I don't think anybody was clamoring for Sega Bass Fishing. As far as fishing titles go its not bad at all, but its a rather boring game in this collection.
Space Channel 5 Part 2 isn't a bad choice, but the original game seems more logical. I could only assume there were some licensing reasons for them not using the original instead.
Ultimately, $30 is not a bad price for these game at all. Arguably more replay value in this package than most full price titles. I give it a thumbs up, but its not the ideal collection.
:___) So many memories!! Please make another one
OMG. After a day of reinventing myself, learning a lot and etc. I thought about my childhood and my dearest God brothers and sisters coming over. So I had 20 bucks and yes... I spent it on this. The graphics and animations were just like when I was a kid... Space Chanel part 2 is interesting, Sonic Adventure WAS THE BEST, Crazy Taxi was awesome and Bass fishing is cool. not much more to say then I'm so glad I get these 4 memorable games for 20 bucks and it was a fantastic deal. Thanks for the memories SEGA, thanks for making a future one I hope and just (tear drop), THANKS AGAIN! :) :) :)
wow are you kidding me, with such an epic genesis collection they release this, 4 GAMES AND ONE OF THEM IS BASS FISHING!?!?!?! and 2 of them are already on the marketplace, i don't believe this! i literally cant believe it. JUST BUY A DREAMCAST THIS IS THE WORST COLLECTION IVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!
sonic adventure was good until beaten. crazy taxi is good for when you can not choose a game. sega bass fishing was only played for fishing rod prop. space channel 5 part 2 is very hard (i barely got past the first level!) and worthless without prequel. only other good things are that you can earn avatar awards for playing one single game for 5 hours, and than doing the same one for 10 hours. i recommend you only get it if you want to play the second space channel 5 game or are an extreme sonic the hedgehog freak.
would be worth it if the games were different
The Dreamcast Collection isnt really a collection, its 4 games that are already out on Xbox live, Sonic Adventure, Crazy Taxi, SEGA Bass Fishing, and Space Channel 5 Part 2. They have everything the xbox live versions have plus enhanced graphics and new acheivments. I was a die hard dreamcast fan and had a huge collection. If I was putting a collection together I'd definitly have powerstone 1 and 2 in there, fighting vipers, jet grind radio, and ready to rumble. Id love to see a sega saturn collection and bring back that game Nights.lol
Wow total letdown. Genesis collection is better.
Seriously? there is only one game that's good in this collection, Sonic Adventure. And you can buy it for I think 800 MS points($10) in the Arcade. I mean really? Fishing and a dance game? They weren't even in the Xbox arcade as the trailer states. but again Fishing and Dance? that's the best collection they can come up with? Not worth 30 and not worth 10 bucks,
I got this collection mainly because it has sonic adventure in it. I really like sonic adventure it is a great game. You can get sonic adventure on xbox live for around 5 or 10 dollars. But if you don't have xbox live i would recommend this collection. The others games on it is cool but mainly i got it because of sonic adventure. This game is epic. The chao garden on it is fun. So ill gives this rating 10/10.
There's already enough fishing..
We've already got enough fishing in Sonic Adventure!! We don't need a fishing sim! They should've just included Sonic Adventure 2 and Jet Grind Radio, because I know these games can't be more than 1gb each considering they were originally on CD's. I'm pretty sure these games are all (or mostly) already on PC, unlike Jet Grind Radio and Sonic Adventure 2 - I'll still be getting it, but I will be disappointed if Sonic Adventure doesn't include a widescreen hack.
