Best DC FPS Games
First-person shooters have been a staple of PC gaming for years. While consoles have been slow to catch on and will likely never surpass PCs for the best FPS experience, there are a number of great console offerings, even original games such as Goldeneye. At the moment, all of the best Dreamcast FPSs are PC ports, but they're ports of the best FPS games available.
Quake III Arena
Why should we even explain this one? You know what Quake is. Sega hyped the game to hell and back, being the first on-line console FPS game available. Quake III Arena is simply why there's a modem in your Dreamcast. It's a multiplayer experience like none other, running surprisingly well on the lil 56.6 kbs modem that could.
The first on-line console FPS hits the Dreamcast in style.
Quake III Arena is based upon the immensely popular deathmatch game known as, well, Quake III Arena. Boasting four player networked console action, new official maps, and mouse and keyboard support, Quake III Arena is also the first real FPS to hit a console. With fast and furious gameplay and smooth, clean graphics, the game is sure to be loved by gamers who enjoy blowing other people up. Last I checked, that's all of us.
In the crowded FPS market, a game must bring something unique to the table and/or be so well built for anyone to take notice. Unreal Tournament is such a game. While the game initially came to fame for its incredible graphics and almost more impressive delays, the game lives thanks to its amazing depth and multiplayer options. From the standard deathmatch to the best capture the flag around, Unreal Tournament is the game to beat.
It's like totally unreal, this game.
Unreal Tournament is decidedly more realistic than, say, Quake III Arena. You can't just launch rockets with reckless abandon, nor can you blaze through a hallway without thinking first. Your guys move like guys, weapons behave as they should, and a good headshot is a good way to put opponents out of their misery without expending too much ammo. With on-line support for up to eight players, Unreal Tournament is one of the best on-line experiences to be had with a Dreamcast.
