Hydro Thunder

 

Hydro Thunder, one of the launch titles for the Dreamcast, is a boat racing game that is plain arcade fun. As a racing game, your goal is to finish first in various tracks of increasing difficulty. Through the tracks, you will find different boost icons that help you speed up your boat which, of course, is always helpful to win a race. When the game starts, you only have access to three tracks and three boats. These are all designated as easy.

House of the Dead 2

 

Light gun games are one of my favorite arcade pastimes, and so hold a special place in my heart. I look back on Lethal Enforcers and Virtua Cop fondly, and The House of the Dead 2 belongs in that elite fraternity, too. But the legend is hard to relive these days. CRT televisions are all but extinct, and the light guns just don’t work on LCD displays. If you were fortunate enough to own The House of the Dead 2 in 1999 with a light gun, then you experienced the game in its full glory.

Gunlord

 

One of the best Indie games of recent years, Gunlord is the epitome of “homage”, it is an excellent platform game and clearly draws inspiration from the classic Mega Turrican for Mega Drive (and indeed the rest of the classic Turrican series). Gunlord is massive, remarkably well made, and gorgeous; it is basically the ultimate retro video game release for Dreamcast.

Head Hunter

 

Here we have one of the many true classics for the Dreamcast. Head Hunter is also one of the few Dreamcast games that ONLY came out in the PAL region. Head Hunter is a game that was clearly inspired by Metal Gear Solid in terms of gameplay mechanics etc. It includes a lot of tactical espionage action where you have to get into cover, hide from enemies, use tactics to avoid or distract as well as kill your enemies.
