Top Five Sega Dreamcast “Sega All Stars” Games
The Sega Dreamcast is everyone’s favorite hardcore system. Even when the mass market shunned it and went for the Playstation 2 instead, hardcore gamers still loved the Dreamcast to death. Although the games were some of the best and innovative of the era, sales were lacking. For the games that sold well, they were repackaged with a “Sega All Stars” label and released for a budget price. Here are the top five best games of the Sega All Stars for the Sega Dreamcast.
5. Virtua Tennis
Publisher: Sega, Developer: Hitmaker, Original Release Date: February 14, 2000, ESRB Rating: E
Virtua Tennis is, without a doubt, the best tennis series around and it all started with the original for the Sega Dreamcast. With tight controls and great gameplay that requires players to react quickly, Virtua Tennis is one of the most addicting Dreamcast games ever. Even if you are not a tennis fan, the easy to pick-up but hard to master gameplay will enthralled you in no time.
4. Power Stone
Publisher: Capcom, Developer: Capcom, Original Release Date: August 31, 1999, ESRB Rating: T
Power Stone is a 3D equivalent to Super Smash Bros. In this fighter, players not only have to fight each other, they have to pay close attention to their position on the stage as the interactive environment could help or hurt you. In addition, the game drops random usable items that will aid you in battle. If you are a fan of Super Smash Bros then this Sega All Star title is right up your alley.
3. Crazy Taxi
Publisher: Sega, Developer: Hitmaker, Original Release Date: January 24, 2000, ESRB Rating: T
In Crazy Taxi, you play as a taxi driver who tries to deliver the passengers to their destinations as quickly and as stylish as possible. Gameplay is fast and hectic as you have to quickly weave through traffic. Not to mention that Crazy Taxi is highly repayable as you try to beat your high scores over and over again. Although the game has many imitators, not one game can beat the original Sega All Star title.
2. Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of the Super Heroes
Publisher: Capcom, Developer: Capcom, Original Release Date: September 30, 1999, ESRB Rating: T
The Dreamcast was known for its huge selection of excellent 2D fighters. Although Marvel vs. Capcom 2 may be the best of the bunch, its prequel is not too shabby either. Pitting Marvel’s comic book icons with Capcom’s videogame giants, Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of the Super Heroes has a lot of cross-over appeal. However, it is the super solid fighting engine along with some incredible looking combos that makes Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of the Super Heroes one of the best games on the Sega Dreamcast.
1. Sonic Adventure
Publisher: Sega, Developer: Sonic Team, Original Release Date: September 9, 1999, ESRB Rating: E
It wouldn’t be a Sega All Stars list, or even a Sega console, without Sonic. In fact, Sonic was never the same once it went multiplatform. Successfully transforming the incredible speed of the 2D Sonic games to 3D, Sonic Adventure set the precedent that many 3D Sonic sequels failed to match. Sonic Adventure also offers plenty of variety with many playable characters with their own unique gameplay. You can’t buy a Sega console without buying a Sonic game; the same goes for the Dreamcast. Therefore, Sonic Adventure is the best Sega All Stars game for the Sega Dreamcast.
