All in all, Caesar’s Palace 2000 is one of those bizarre games that, while not really being all that amazing, might be worth a look if you’re always playing your Dreamcast games with mates – it IS a four-player game, after all. It’s not exactly the best Dreamcast game ever, but then it’s a game about a casino… what did you expect?
Caesars Palace 2000 ist typische Wühltischware, die selbst Sammler nach spätestens einem Wochenende wieder in die Kuriositätenschublade packen werden. Wenn die fragwürdige Spielidee wenigstens mit ein paar Gags aufgelockert oder technisch überzeugend umgesetzt worden wäre, hätte man eventuell von Zeit zu Zeit mal Lust auf den Gang ins Casino. Leider haben die Programmierer nicht die geringsten Anstrengungen in diese Richtung unternommen. Wenn man sich ein Kartenspiel kauft und dann mit ein paar Kumpels um Gummibärchen pokert, hat man auf jeden Fall mehr Spaß für weniger Geld.

Caesars Palace 2000 isn't necessarily a bad casino game; in fact, casino-wise it's okay. It's just that game-wise there's practically nothing to it. There are a number of ways it could have been improved - online play is a no-brainer, as is VM support that would allow you to play simple games on the move. Otherwise, some kind of story - maybe having to win money to pay off the mob, or something along those lines. Until a gambling game like that comes along, you're better off buying a deck of cards or going to Las Vegas and playing with some real money.

The above-par graphics are quickly negated by the rock-bottom enjoyment factor. Unfortunately, this game doesn't have any of the character the real casino has. In fact, there is hardly a casino theme to it at all. There isn't a buzz of sound and people winning all over, as there aren't people at all. Though you can play with other live people, you can't have computer characters sit in. If you really want a solid casino game, you might think about getting Hoyle Casino, which addresses everything bad about Caesars Palace and corrects it ten-fold.
There isn't one! It's unfortunate that in the year 2000, with all the technological feats and accomplishments that have been made over the last decade or so, that our gambling simulators are still this basic. Easily outclassed by the enormously entertaining Nintendo classic Vegas Dream, it would be a wiser bet to pop that old geezer in your console and give it a go. With better play mechanics, superior music, and far more personality than Caesar's Palace 2000, the odds are you'll have a lot more fun with the old school.
In the end, Caesar's Palace 2000 is a shoddy casino game and only rides the franchise name without making virtual use of it in the game. While the selection of gambling titles on the Dreamcast is slim in comparison to the PlayStation or the PC, the best bet for all involved would be to take your chips elsewhere.
