I'd argue that Code Veronica X invalidates Code Veronica as a Dreamcast exclusive; it may have added stuff, but at its core, it's a port.

I know they're not technically exclusive anymore, but even some of the originals on DC are still better on the DC imo, for a variety of reasons.

For example, Crazy Taxi had its original Bad Religion and Offspring soundtrack torn out of its later ports, as well as the KFC and Pizza Hut licences. I mean, what the fuck? How the hell do you even play Crazy Taxi without Bad Religion or Offspring? That's just madness. I believe the PS2 and GameCube ports retained the music and licences, but they didn't play as well as the DC original (more slowdown and framerate issues), nor were the graphics as sharp.

Jet Set Radio had recent ports and again music and graffiti art were taken out of the game.

Sonic Adventure is better on Dreamcast. The DX port on Gamecube (later also used for PC and the HD versions) bizarrely had textures missing, worse character models and more frequent camera issues. There's even an unofficial fan created mod on the PC version to retain the HD visuals and widescreen, but put the Dreamcast version's character models and the missing textures back in the game.

Regarding Code Veronica X, a fun fact most people don't know is that Code Veronica X was also actually released on the Dreamcast

P.S. One exclusive not mentioned I noticed is Super Runabout.

You're not wrong. It is a bit debatable, but some people swear by the original release over CV X. For a fair few, the added cutscenes change the feel of the game dramatically. I'm a bit on the fence about the original release's exclusiveness, to be honest, but it seems to me like it would be exclusive in a similar way to Resident Evil: Director's Cut being a PS1 exclusive.

Totally agree, and I don't like leaving those games out, either, but if we're really just talking about exclusives, they don't fit here, unfortunately. Power Stone 1 & 2 deserve to be in everyone's Dreamcast collection, though.

Yeah, that's how I played the game. It's my favorite of the first four RE games. The color contrast in the HD versions is horrendous in comparison to the Dreamcast version, as well.

Yeah, I've got CV X on the DC too. For some weird reason I didn't finish that sentence, so for those who don't know, it was released exclusively in the Japan region.

Oh, I get it; I'm one of those people who swear by the Dreamcast original. But I'm also one of the folks who don't really count RE Directors Cut as being a separate game. :lol:

One of my personal favorite exclusives that i've most recently devoted some time to. Yoko Kanno's musical score is simply beautiful.

Oh I've heard good things about that one (can't remember if I ever played the backup copy...)
I didn't realize it had the tall artwork/case...

This isn't actual the box art. Just a promo art piece. The game got a standard jewel case release, at least that is the one I own currently.
