High resolution backgrounds. Mindless hack and slash always caters to me, lol. It had above average dialog. I haven't played in a couple years though. As with 400 other games, it's on my backlog.

Oh and I've only played for an hour, but 'Draconus: Cult of the Wyrm' is a fantastic looking and sounding game. Gameplay is stiff but manageable. Might become easier with practice. I've only played as the dude so far, but the voice acted dialog is fairly edgy and funny.

Seventh Cross Evolution - A evolution simulator in which you morph and create live structures. Poor graphics, but good gameplay.

Record of Lodoss War - Inspired from the anime series, the Dreamcast version plays out like Diablo - an over-head RPG with pre-rendered 3-D sprites. Fans of Runescape might enjoy.

Super Magnetic Neo - Slick Adventure / platform title with wonderful cute graphics and addictive gameplay, overlooked!

Bangai-O - Excellent platform/shump from Treasure

Project Justice - Impressive follow up from Capcom's Rival Schools (PS1) Japanese version includes a board game and character creator mode!

Cannon Spike - Reviving shump genre, Psykio teamed up with Capcom to create this short, but addictive platform/shump. Including 2-Player co-up!

Tech Romancer - Based on Old- Japanese mech culture, a shiny 3-D 1v1 fighter published by Capcom.

Giga Wing 2 - sequel to the Arcade / Saturn shump hit, featues a 2-player mode.

Shenmue wasn't exactly hidden -- it was one of Sega's headlining titles...
Anything else? :)

I would have to say Rez. I had not played this game until a couple of days ago, because it was never released in the US on the Dreamcast. I do not know if it is really a hidden gem or not, but it blew me away with its originality and game play.
