Availability: ,

A visually stunning, fast and fluid combat game for the Sega Dreamcast. Produced by the notorious breast-loving Tomonobu Itagaki, the game features lots of lovely ladies bouncing around the arena. A clear example of the Dreamcast’s power at the time, the game looked fantastic and even has some graphical advantages over the Playtation 2 version.

Emulators tested

Demul (DirectX 10) – Game exhibits graphical glitches (disappearing backgrounds) and struggles to maintain 60fps.

Demul (DirectX 11) – Less graphical glitches than DirectX 10 mode but still struggles to maintain 60fps particularly with enhancements enabled.

Makaron T12.7 – Untested.

Special configuration options

This game is very demanding on the emulator and will require a fast PC, particularly if you want to upscale it. The “Disable auto sort” option does not seem to make a big difference to the games accuracy, but you may need to disable shaders and/or turn internal resolution down for best performance. Ensure that you have your PC configured for maximum performance as it can make all the difference (a guide to this is coming soon).
