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.
Summary: I was always intrigued by the premise of this game: defeating an alien invasion through the power of dance. I bought it for my Dreamcast and was delighted by the game, entranced by the visuals and I simply loved the music. My Dreamcast is long sold on so I've bought the game for the PS2 and it's no less great than I remember. The gameplay is beautifully simple and an example in economy and accessibility. Remember the game Simon?
Summary: It's hard to believe this thing shot down below $20 after about 3 months on the shelves. Maybe it's because rhythm games are too specific for the masses, but it might also be because the packaging hides the fact that this is TWO games: Space Channel 5 parts 1 and 2. Space Channel 5 part 1 is pretty much an exact port from the Dreamcast version a few years back.
Summary: Space Channel 5: Special Edition, including both Part 1 and the previously unreleased Part 2 for PS2 - $30. How could I resist? Miziguchi and his UGA studio are one of those developers that get my money for a game without needing to read a review. Their Kandinsky-inspired Rez is one of the greatest videogames ever made and Sega Rally is one of my favorite racing games. Space Channel 5 was an enjoyable distraction on the Dreamcast.
This is a 2 Disc Set that includes both part 1 AND 2

Summary: The other reviewer is completely wrong. This does include the sequel. Providing hours and hours of fun. I can pick this up anytime and have a blast. It's addictive, challenging, and it will keep you moving to the rhythm. I got hooked on the dream cast version. It took awhile but now my favorite game is back on the PS2 along with a VERY inventive sequel that ups the fun level and makes things more challenging and more interesting in terms of adding singing, instruments,...
Summary: Space Channel 5 is possibly the most basic "simon says" game there is out there. Only involving the directional buttons, you'll hear and see a pattern, and your job is to repeat it with perfect timing. While being so simple, it comes across in a fresh manner by the nature of the game. The graphics are second to none, with so many people following your dance routines you'll be amazed, wanting to replay the VERY short game again and again.
Summary: First off , this game is a musical one , and it's japanesse so if you hate j-pop and Nippon trendyness , let it be. But if you like funny characters , glamour , cool rythms and a delirious sci-fi atmosphere come her ! The game consists in typing the right button following the rythm and sound .
Summary: now those of you who didnt get a dreamcast get to play this excellent rhythm action game.you play as Ulala, tv reporter for the title station who must save the world from invading morolian aliens.they shout directions, up, down, left, right and shoot, you follow.simple, but sooo addictive.plus the musics cool too!it is a bit short, but i strongly reccommend u buy it!oh and michael jackson's in it. :-sover and out!
