    I have the opportunity to get some import games for Dreamcast at an excellent price.

    Can anyone suggest some goods ones to get?

    If you can give a brief description of the game and which country it's from.

    Thanks.

    What sort of games you looking for? Europe or Japan?
    The 'most commonly imported' DC games are Shen Mue 2 & Headhunter from Europe, along with REZ from either the UK or Japan (as it's in English in both countries).
    Head Hunter is a MGS style game with some nice twists to it to make it stand out. I'm really enjoying it. Great graphics & presentation. Shen Mue 2 is well, Shen Mue 2 [​IMG] REZ is a fairly unique 3D 'musical shooter' that's out on the PS2 in North America.
    If you're a longterm fan of Capcom's 2D fighters, Vampire Chronicles for Matching Service is well worth picking up - collection of the old Vampire fighting games from Capcom.
    If you like music/rythym games, then there's a number of Dance Dance Revolution & Pop'n'Music games out in Japan.
    If you like 2d Shooters, get Zero Gunner 2 which is very highly regarded by fans.
    If you like puzzlers, there's a very good conversion of Super Puzzle Fighter by Capcom available in Japan - you can get that one for much much cheaper than the US PSX port which goes for stupid money on eBay. I don't know why more people dont buy it on import.
    Other Euro exclusive games include Moho (VERY hard), Who Wants to Be a Millionare?, StuntGP, Jimmy White's Snooker (rubbish!), AquaGT & Giant Killers.
    There's a good conversion of Fighting Vipers 2 out too in Europe & Japan which can usually be bought for very cheap.
    "Oddball" Japanese games worth getting for cheap include the likes of Lost Golem, Capcom vs SNK 2 + fan disk, Cool Cool Toon, Cosmic Smash, DOA2:LE, Bomber Hehe, Jet Coaster Dream 2.
