Summary: This is a great game for kids. For adults, it is amusing for a short time. There is not much replay value, however, since once you solve the puzzles, you are done. The graphics are simple and the gameplay is not difficult. This is for the type of person who likes to solve puzzles.
Excerpt: Chu Chu Rocket is a unique puzzle game based around mice (the Japanese word for mice being chu) who must escape from rampaging cats (or the Kapu in this game) by boarding a rocket for the moon. The game looks, sounds and plays as bonkers as the concept of the game sounds on paper.
Pros: Simple to play, good combination of quick reflexes and strategy
Cons: Very basic graphics, music is annoying, can be frustrating due to a random element
Excerpt: Segas (and the worlds) first online console game, Chuchu Rocket follows the basic concept of cat against mouse. The object of the game is to guide ChuChus (mice) into rockets by placing down arrow tiles, but while you do this, you must prevent the KapuKapus (cats) from getting in and eating a third...
Excerpt: If you own a dreamcast then you probably already have this game buried somewhere at the bottom of your collection. Dig it out, get some mates round, get drunk and drive yourselves crazy with the bright graphics and mouse saving chaos. Get good and cause hatred by driving cats at your mates rockets.
Excerpt: This game came free with my dreamcast and so I thought that it would be absolutely poor in gameplay and in graphics. Ok so the graphics are 2D but the end scenes are in 3D. The gameplay is really good and solid.
Excerpt: Yes, Yes, I did register on DreamArena just to get this game. I'm a sucker for a good marketing trick. I read in CTW that Sega are losing money by actually giving this game away to registered users. Crazy world we live in. Anyway, On to the game.
Excerpt: This is a great game which could have appeared on any of the 16 bit consoles years ago. But it could not have made such a great on-line game. This was the first console on-line game and because of this it was given away free to all Dreamcast owners.
Excerpt: Chu Chu Rocket, is this a strange name or what? It actually suits the game in the form of being strange – I’ve never played anything quite as mad as ChuChu Rocket before! It’s made by the same people who have given you Sonic, Nights and Phantasy Star Online – Sonic Team and is actually a rather...
Excerpt: Hi there this is my first opinon so bear with me :). The great thing about this game from the offset is that you can either get it free with the dreamcast or go online and get it free from dream arena (sega's home domain).
Pros: on line capabilty free with most dreamcast packages
Excerpt: Wow, This easily one of the best games on dreamcast. And its FREE!. I have seen shops sell it at around £30 and i would pay that for it. It is madness. It should be the worst game ever but it is so addictive. The puzzles can be worked through in a week or two.
