This is a great game. I just beat the final level. I have not unlocked all of the characters yet. I would love to play as the dog. That has got to be funny as hell.

What have been your experiences with this game? Have you created your own tags? My 6 year old have made a few and, I have downloaded a couple from the net.

This game could use a deathmatch mode.

I agree, it's a very great game. I just wish the later levels weren't so hard, focusing not on what makes the game so great. But still, overall it was really fun. I agree that there should've been a 2-player mode. That woulda kicked ass.
Oh and yeah I've made some tags. Dey r0x!

Picked this up during the $20 sale at Target and have to admit it was an addictive game. Haven't finished it yet though.

My favorite character is Cube. I like his endurance and, something about skating around with a boombox on your shoulder just seems cool.

I thinks it back to $40 again. The sale was a few weeks ago.

This is one of my favorite DC games. Finished it in 4 hours flat. Great music and graphics.

This is the HIPPEST game I've ever played. It's so damned fun to play. I really hope they tweak the control and camera for the sequal though...another thing: What's up with this game selling so poorly? It never made it into the top 20 in video game sales. That's just sad. This game has everything going for it--great graphics, originality, and it's fun as hell!

You could say the same thing about Virtua Tennis. Another excellent game that did not get very much attention.

Never made top 20 in sales!? Wow! I consider it the best title Dreamcast has, especially in light of the grisly disappointment that is Shenmue.

I picked it up yesterday at Target for 20 I had a raincheck from when it was on sale. The price was 50 bucks ouch. It is a really cool game.

Quick note about Virtua Tennis is that it was named in the Top 15 games of all time in the last Gamepro magazine I think it was number 8 or something. Also as far as Jet Grind I played this yesterday for the first time, and it is pretty fun. I also have Jet Set from Japan, but haven't played it yet.

Actually with Virtua Tennis they didn't expect it to sell well and only made 50K copies.. They sold out within the first 2 days and the title was then very hard to get for a few weeks until they could manufacture more of them..

Note they are making a sequel this year with female players and possibly online play!
