Underappreciated Dreamcast Games.
« on: January 27, 2016, 01:12:51 AM »
Continuing my theme of threads for underappreciated games, this one is for the Megadrive/Genesis.

I will start with the awesome Trickstyle.



Hoverboards are sooo cool and so is TrickStyle, its bat**** crazy futuristic fun, enough said.

Don't have that one.  May have to look into it.
Going to the final frontier, gaming...

I think I tried a demo of Zombie Revenge but that's as far as I ever got with the game. I'd like to pick it up some day too.

Pro Pinball Trilogy.

It only amounts to having 3 tables on one disc but these are Pro Pinball series tables with a full featured simulation going on. You get Timeshock, Big Race USA and Fantastic Journey to choose from.

Every option imaginable here including a full operator menu - you can even set the age of the table.

And if you play it using the VGA box it looks absolutely gorgeous.

Just a pity they left their first table "The Web" out.

PAL exclusive.

Suzuki Alstare Racing.

Daft, arcade handling has you bouncing of the side of the track but this is great fun. Graphics aren't half bad and the rag doll physics are fun when you crash and the driver comes off. Nice control scheme too.

Very basic presentation etc. but I personally think it's under-rated. Just good simple bike racing fun.

Indeed that looks completely crazy, think I would smash my controller with in consistent movement adjustments in the bends and so on.. Nice graphics though.

Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge.  It's probably the best Frogger game, even better than the original arcade game.  I got it for PC when I was 5, PlayStation when I was 9 (maybe 10), and Dreamcast when I was 15.  I've completed it over 25 times and it still never gets old.  Definitely a must have for the Dreamcast.

I'm pretty sure the developers of this game decided after the dreamcast unfortunate death to make a game called airblade which is a very similar game. Could not find a half decent review online so here is the first level. P.s. Sorry I probably shouldn't mention Sony on this thread.

I have TrickStyle for the DreamCast. Never played it and my copy is still sealed. Looks like a fun game.

Sony talk is okay here. Just mostly the latter like the PS IV. Not talk of the Playstation as it competed against the Saturn and DreamCast. Which those two competed against the N64 which competed against the Atari Jaguar.

LOL!! I am kidding. I enjoy all console talk.

I enjoy Trickstyle for the Dreamcast. (Actually had to pick up a 2nd copy because it was damaged though)

Found a game called Change N' Blast, which is a pretty good shooter. Each section is timed like an Arcade gun game, but it doesn't use a light gun, your character can move around the screen to dodge attacks as you aim instead.

Did a little gameplay video on one of my pickup videos, but I don't remember when. Quite an addictive game.

In a few weeks I will be reviewing Evil Twin, I have been told its underappreciated, guess I will find out soon... :)

I also did a review and MoHo and can confirm its terrible and not underrated at all, shame its pretty much the most expensive PAL game... what a rip...

As for my real underappreciated games, I would say Dead or Alive 2, sure its rated, but its considered all about the girls bouncy bits, really it it is one of the best 3D fighters ever...

Speaking of 3D fighters, Virtua Fighter 3tb is quite underrated.
