Yeah. The same with Suzuki Alstare Extreme Racing, on dreamcast. Many people didn't know, it was a semi sequel to Redline Racer on PC. And some didn't know, that both games were related.

According to Dreamcast Junkyard, Speed Devils Online is actually quite a downgrade to Speed Devils! Graphics are toned down, the single player was removed and the unlockables were simply available by default. Once the online side is brought back though, it might redeem itself.

Yeah, I was actually surprised when I learnt that too. I was expecting the online version of the game, to be a super upgrade of the original. It was kind of sad, that the graphics were downgraded though.

Yeah, I understand what you mean, by classic half baked Ubisoft game. Ubisoft has always been guilty, of having great game ideas, but falling short of actually pulling them off properly.
But the good thing is, at least this POD game is not so bad. But it could have been better. And the online seems to make up for it in a way. I watched some online vids of this game, from a few youtube channels that have dreamcast content. And it looked really fun to play online.

I've also heard some good things, about a game on the dreamcast, called Speed Devil's. Some dreamcast fans/gamers like it, others say it could have been better. I've never played it yet though. But I'm curious to see how it is.


exactly that but at least i mpst say it's impressive how ubisoft is keen to support new things (in this case the online and the dc)

as for speed devils, never played it and from what i see it seems a very dull game honestly, but for some reason i can't wait to try the online play, equally to pod the online feature seems much more interesting

I agree. And despite their short comings, I myself definitely give props to Ubisoft, for supporting the dreamcast and doing all sorts of cool things, with their games, like the online and stuff. Not many game companies back then, were that dedicated.

Yeah, many gamers have mixed views, on Speed Devils. Some have even said, the game was highly over rated. Lol! But in my opinion, the game looks kinda okay. Not the best, but okay and still worthy to be checked out. But I myself am curious, to see the online in this game too. :)

I will be checking out POD again soon. I have to try and get accustomed, to the tracks in this game. But first, I have a few games to complete, and some art related stuff to do first.

The general consensus is that POD has very high production value but is extremely monotonous unless you are racing online against multiple other players. That's why it had a bad wrap until fairly recently when it was brought back online.
