Dreamcast Reviews

Sonic Adventure

After an absence on the Saturn, Sonic returned on the Dreamcast with a new platform adventure. It was hailed and welcomed by many at the time, but the Blue Blur still had a lot of adjusting to do in the third dimension. A disjointed plot and a problematic camera keep Sonic’s first proper 3D outing from being a true classic.

Hands-On: Shenmue III

It took almost 20 years, but the third entry in Yu Suzuki’s magnum opus finally arrived. Was it worth the wait? Did it answer all of our questions? The answer to both questions is mixed, and where Shenmue III improves upon its predecessors’ faults, it conjures up some confounding new ones.

Tintin in Tibet

Tintin has been a classic comic hero for over a century, so it was only natural for him to get his own video game. It’s based on the 1960 book and features visuals were straight out of the comic. Lamentably, the gameplay and difficulty make this one adventure better left to the printed page.
