Excerpt: You have to love Sega don’t you? They spend ages developing a revolutionary voice recognition system and create a plug-in microphone peripheral to allow you to interact with your console. Lesser developers having done all this would have maybe integrated it into an First Person Shooter to allow you to give commands to a team of combatants. Something violent anyway and definitely something commercial. Well not Sega.
Excerpt: One thing you have to give Sega credit for: they seem to be the only game company to have grapefruits enough to come up with original stuff. Right out of E3 their impressive showing debuted several interesting titles. Space Channel 5, the dancing game, was released last June (when everyone else was playing the same old genres), and later this year Sega fans will be treated to even more original titles with the likes of Jet Grind Radio and Shenmue.
Excerpt: If you're looking for a fast-paced action game, please stop reading this review. Seaman is not a game in the strictest sense of the word. It's more of a virtual pet simulator and it doesn't require you to sit in front of the screen for hours at a time. A simple 10-20 minutes a day will do nicely, thank you. With that out of the way, lets take a look at what could possibly be the most unique console game of the year.
Excerpt: "You're a journalist, are you? I hope you do a nice story about me. A lot of humans find me interesting, so you should take advantage of that as soon as possible." If you've ever had a virtual pet, you know you should do whatever you can to keep it happy. So at its request, here is my review of Seaman, a Sega Dreamcast game from Sega and developed by Vivarium.
Summary: Interessant, innovativ, kurios und auch lustig. Vier Gründe, die schon einmal für den Kauf des Spieles sprechen! Ihr werdet Euch genauso wie ich täglich auf den Titel stürzen und einen SmallTalk mit Seaman führen wollen.
Zwingend sind gute Englischkenntnisse, ohne die sich das Spiel unmöglich spielen lässt, da es sich um einen US-Import handelt.
