This review does an excellent job of showing what the collection could have--and should have been--and (more importantly) what it isn't. I made the same point about The Offspring from Crazy Taxi when I reviewed the original Xbox Live Arcade release of that particular title. This is a collection of poorly executed ports and it should have been bigger and better. Maybe we'll see that down the road. The Dreamcast did deserve better than this compilation disc.

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world

Thanks Jason. This thing was a major disappointment.

And thanks for the catch, and the cover art.

I always wondered how they pick games to be in such a collection. Did one sell more than the other. At the end you noted some good choices and that makes me wonder.
