Summary: This game is must-buy. just push a,b and directional buttons, you will be amused by great music and dance. probably this game is short. especially you are professional-gamer. but Space Channel 5 Special Edition is not one-game, is two-games! Space channel 5 part1 or part 2 is short, respectively. but Two-games are not short, so you can enjoy muscial for a long time.
Summary: Space Channel 5 Special Edition is a port of the music games for Dreamcast: Space Channel 5 & Space Channel 5 Part 2. It's basically a game of 'simon says', where you rescue civilians and defeat your enemies by repeating their movements using the d-pad & button presses in time with the funky music. The game looks a little dated by today's standards, but it's a lot of fun to play and a bargain at this price.
Summary: Years ago we had a PS1 demo CD and Space Channel 5 was one of the short games displayed. It was such a fun demo to play that we really wanted to get our hands on the full version, but couldn't find it anywhere. When we first started using Amazon we managed to find it! It was a dream come true...I know its just a game, but it meant something to us (no matter how corny that sounds).
Summary: I just had to write this to contradict a previous longwinded review. (Most likely written by the manufactured themselves. They DO write reviews for their own games!) This game absolutely stinks!!!! There is nothing origional about it. It's the same monotony over and over again. Don't waste the money. Use it to buy an old Simon game at a garage sale instead. (...) dont waste your money buying this piece of boring garbage. Lame from the very beginning-- even to a toddler.
Summary: Hopes ran high, and the wait was long, but ultmately... it was worth it. The original Space Channel 5 for Dreamcast is to me a great symbol of everything that was right about that game system. Like many other games for the Dreamcast, SC5 was stylish, creative, original, off-beat, and had loads of replay value. In my mind, it will always be a true classic. Naturally, I was quite disappointed when it appeared that the sequel would never come out in America.
Summary: I've been hooked on Space Channel 5 since getting the original Dreamcast version on a whim. Back then, the lag in Ulala's movements annoyed me, but not nearly enough to keep me from playing the game. The music was awesome, the characters fun to watch, and despite the lagged dancing, the game was fun to play. I hadn't realized Part 2 had gotten released here in the States, and coming with Part 1 for $15 (preowned--what was that person thinking?), I couldn't resist.
Excerpt: "...going. Alien's have hypnotized a space port into a trance-like state in which humans can't stop dancing. Ulala is reporter femme-fatale, with a microphone gun. Her job is to out-dance the aliens, meanwhile shooting them in the face or saving the captive humans. Rather simplistic, but it works well enough for a game such as this. Graphics 9/10 They must have been drunk or else when building this game. Those colorful mini-skirts that Lieutenant ...
Excerpt: "--- Overview --- First released on the Dreamcast (RIP) by Sega back in 2000, it was at its time the first dance game on the next generation consoles. Two years later and it was released on the PS2, but how well has it done? The storyline is simple aliens are threatning mankind and your character has got to outdance them, save hostages, kill bosses etc etc.... to save the human race. --- Price --- You can still find it in some stores at ...
Pros: An original game with funky retro music and lots of style
