One of the Dreamcast’s most innovative titles featured a dancing, maraca-shaking monkey. That alone should have been enough to call attention, but developer Sonic Team built an incredibly fun and engaging game around him. Samba de Amigo is a game no one with a Dreamcast should miss.

The Dreamcast’s first online game wasn’t perhaps what people wanted, but the creative geniuses at Sonic Team gave them the one they deserved. ChuChu Rocket doesn’t show off the console’s power but provides hours of fun that can be enjoyed off or online.
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.
Saturn owners have a tradition that has not failed since 1996. Each Christmas, it’s time to break out the Christmas NiGHTS sampler and play through it! An amazing giveaway from Sega that was bundled with magazines, the disc is loaded with enough great content to keep players busy for hours. A merry Christmas indeed!
One of the final Saturn releases was also one of its most original. Taking the action genre in a a new direction, Sonic Team had players take the role of a futuristic rescue team in a game that pushed Sega’s 32-bit hardware to its limit. Burning Rangers is both a technological achievement and a lot of fun.
