    Classic Game Room - VIRTUAL ON for Dreamcast review


    by ClassicGameRoom

    Classic Game Room season 1 - 8/12/2000

    Game Room does "Virtual On" this week, a game where the controls are most certainly "On Crack".

    This game is a prime example of what happens when game designers run out of good ideas for video games. They follow the old cliche of gigantic robots beating the crap out of each other on a moon base for no apparent reason.

    Dave liked the arcade version of this game, but in translating it to the Dreamcast the developers went out of their way to make the controls the most cryptic and unresponsive controls ever. In fact, Virtual On is so difficult to control, the game is Virtual Unplayable.

    Game Room reviewed Atari, NES, Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Dreamcast and Playstation... too bad they didn't get to Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 or Wii.
