La réalisation est vraiment fine et le rythme plus que soutenu, mais les modes de jeu ne vous tiendront pas en haleine très longtemps. Et pas de mode réseau...

Despite a few nagging problems with controls, and a small selection of weapons, Outtrigger is a solid effort by AM2 giving first person shooter fans something refreshingly different than what they've experienced in past Dreamcast corridor shooters. With a good combination of great single player mission modes and decent online playability, once you get used to the controls and the levels, it may be hard to stop that itchy trigger finger.

Outtrigger is a great addition to the 3D shooter genre on the Dreamcast. The game has both 1st and 3rd person perspectives, addding a new look to the genre (nice to have a little change).

Im Vergleich zur Konkurrenz aus den Häusern Epic (Unreal Tournament) und Raster/Id Software (Quake III Arena) überzeugt Outtrigger mit einem erfrischenden Setting, einer bombastischen Präsentation und gleichwertigem Gameplay. Wer genügend Freunde hat, der sollte AM2s Shooter auf jeden Fall eine Chance geben. Wer menschlichen Kontakt weitestgehend vermeidet, muss wohl oder Übel auf ein anderes Genre ausweichen. Diesbezüglich noch ein Kommentar zur finalen Wertung: Singleplayer und Multiplayer in einem Spiel wie Outtrigger gegeneinander abzuwägen ist nicht nur schwer, sondern auch sinnlos. Dementsprechend bezieht sich die Wertung ausschließlich auf den Mehrspielermodus!

While Outtrigger is somewhat parallel to shooters like Quake III or Unreal, it will provide a different experience for Dreamcast owners. However, this is why this game may not be for everyone out there. Although once players allow themselves to get into Outtrigger, each will sure to realize what fun this shooter can be. Like the announcer says about exercises, I’m afraid this review is over!

Outtrigger is a great addition to the 3D shooter genre on the Dreamcast. The game has both 1st and 3rd person perspectives, addding a new look to the genre (nice to have a little change). The game features full online play for upto 6-players, and support for the 56k and Broadband Adapter. For offline multiplayer, upto 4 players can play split-screen and it works great. The graphics are supurb,and the textures add great detail to characters and levels. The gameplay is fast and runs at a 60 fps framerate, which is a must for 3D shooting games. Outtrigger is a great multiplayer game, both online and offline. If you are looking for a great single player experience, you will have look elsewhere. (Soldier of Fortune was just released - stay tuned for the review) Overall, I enjoyed Outtrigger. Lots of hidden stuff to unlock, new levels, characters, and weapons. It is a fun, fast paced game, that is packed full of features and great online gameplay.

En definitiva, OutTrigger es un buen disparo, pero se queda algo corto.

3D-Shooter Fans können bedenkenlos zugreifen. Sie stören sich sicherlich nicht an der eher simpel gehaltenen Story und den eher anspruchslosen Einspieler Missionen. Einen richtigen Leckerbissen stellt Outtrigger jedoch für Fans von blitzschnellen, unkomplizierten Multiplayer-Duellen dar. Alles in allem bekommt man also mit Outtrigger einen soliden 3d-Shooter mit Schwächen im Einspieler- dafür aber enormen Stärken im Mehrspieler-Modus.

While the system is nearing its final days, the Dreamcast's bread and butter is still its online capabilities. Outtrigger is a fast-paced shooter from Sega that works well as an online game, but it doesn't have enough to it to outlast the likes of Unreal Tournament or Quake III Arena.

Als je echt een goede shooter voor je DC wilt bezitten, kun je beter voor UT of Quake 3 kiezen. Outrigger is leuk voor een weekend, meer niet.

The Video Game Critic
The multi-tiered stages are fairly small, and power-ups are all over the place. The single player mode challenges you to an increasingly difficult series of short missions. I don't know about the network mode, but my friends hated the split-screen mode. It's played from the first person perspective, and it's very hard to tell what's happening. Trigger-happy arcade fans might appreciate Outtrigger, but overall it's just average.

Outtrigger manque clairement son passage à l'euro. Alors qu'il aurait pu être un bon Quake-like comme ses versions américaine et japonaise, il se retrouve être un bête jeu où l'action est un peu trop confuse pour être joué en écran splitté. Dommage car sa réalisation est pourtant d'un bon niveau...
