Limber up your fingers sports fans as Virtua Athlete comes running onto the Dreamcast. In 128-bit glory this is your chance to become one of the best athletes in the world, albeit in a virtual sense. Sega have a reputation for producing quality arcade titles and this is no exception. Virtua Athlete 2K is undoubtedly one class game. The visual quality is outstanding and complements the feel of the game perfectly. A solid visual environment helps create sense of actually being there. Get your friends round for the evening and prepare for the ultimate in living room Olympics.

The events that you compete in are as follows: 100 meter dash, the long jump, shot put, high jump, 110 meter hurdles, javelin and finally the 1500 meter race. Each event has different skills that you must master. Thankfully, before each event an explanation is given showing what to do and the optimum angle (if required). The thing that makes this game tricky is that the more speed you are carrying, the harder it becomes to judge when to perform the actions necessary. Your timing has to constantly change to compensate.

In Virtua Athlete 2K you can create your own custom character to take part in your own custom exhibitions. This adds personality, depth and attachment to the game. Virtua Athlete 2K is definitely a party game.
