I'd choose Banjo-Tooie over this any day, I'll get the demo though to see what it's like!

Now now, Outrun Online Arcade was 800, and that was probably worth 1200, but I'm glad it was 800.

I have the full 200 in that one, and I'd still play online to ruin or reinforce streaks for the achievement.

I don't know how it will play now, but when this came out for the dreamcast, it was awesome. (Maybe it was the Saturn, can't remember too well)

I am going to buy this if for no other reason to encourage sega to keep porting things over from their older systems. Plus the game was great fun back in the day.

for all the people who are saying this looks like a crappy version of "this". This game came before most of the mech games hit saturation. Also I'm getting both.

This game looks decent for 800 points, not 1200.

Also, are they seriously flaunting a Color Editing mode as a major game feature? *facepalm*

@24 yeah the AC games were really bland, so this looks even worse.

If they're gonna port DC games, how about Sonic or the Shenmue series? Maybe even the never-gonna-happen third part of the Shenmue story?

Wow, amazing how many people don't know what this is... I guess when you look at Segas back catalogue it is one of the more obscure titles, but back in those days twin stick shooters were unheard of!

Unfortunately I'm still working my way through my games surplus from Xmas, and with summer thowing up a few sweet releases, I just don't have the time for new xbla games too

I just want to point something out to all the idiots that moan about the 800 / 1200 price thing.

Pratically from day one of the 360, if it was a port of a old game, it was 400 or 800, if it was a title built from scratch for the 360, it is 1200 or more, if you think thats too much for the game then fine, but don't whine "it looks like 1200 is the new standard price" cause thats just bullshit, look at some of the recent games, they haven't been 1200!

Hmm never played the DC one in the end - will definitely download the trial...

And @41 - No, he didn't mean 'Jet Grind Radio'. 'Jet Set Radio' was the European name for the Dreamcast game, and the sequel on the original XBox was called 'Jet Set Radio Future'. So there. :p

Man, we got 60% of the people on this site who didn't know what MvC2 was so I don't expect anyone here to remember the Saturn/DC Virtual-Ons but this game was damn good. (I enjoyed the Saturn one better but whatever - at least it's not Virtual-On Mars, right?)

Any game that looks like Zone of the Enders is automatically dismissed. This looks even worse than ZotE and that equals complete garbage. This game might be worth 400 points along with the other Sega classics, if you can call this a classic.

Zone of the Enders 1 and 2 were both actually really fun games and both were well reviewed. Other than the fact that the first was "the game that came with the MGS2 demo" back then, it still was a hell of a lot of fun. And if this classic I happened to have missed is similar it will be very fun. Either way it looks cool.
