Developed by Sega's renowned AM2 team, Outtrigger is an action game that can be played in either the first or third person. However, it clearly plays like a first-person shooter. The sparse story has you serving as a member of an anti-terrorist group. The game's high-quality graphics run at a peppy 60 frames per second. Owners of numerous Dreamcast peripherals will be pleased to learn that this game supports almost all of them. This is one of the few titles to utilise Sega's broadband adapter. It looks fantastic through the VGA box, and controls best using the keyboard and mouse peripherals. Up to four players can compete offline and up to six online. Single-player mode is another story--it gets dull quickly, especially compared to more established titles such as Unreal Tournament and Quake III Arena (both available for Dreamcast), which have more variety. Controlling the action using a gamepad is very difficult. The keyboard and mouse setup is highly recommended. Four-player mode can be difficult to follow for users with small televisions. Although the game's single-player mode is sub par, Outtrigger is good choice for Dreamcast owners--especially those with broadband adapters--looking for multiplayer excitement. --Raymond M Padilla
