But these are more gripes than actual flaws in a very solid, highly entertaining Dreamcast title. Don't let the rather cute Ooga Booga title fool you into thinking this is kid's game. If you own a Dreamcast and if you're really into playing online DC games, there's no question at all that Ooga Booga is a definite must-have. Let's hope that Ooga Booga is enough of a success so that we see it on a next generation system; it would be a shame not to have other players experience the mayhem and humor of this great original, multiplayer title and be stuck with another assy brand name, kart racing game.

In this case, Ooga Booga isn't about creating some picture perfect world or trying to 'out-Quake' Quake. It's lighthearted fun, and a party game through and through. It's the kind of thing you might keep running at a party and expect people to pop in and out of, much like a game of lawn darts. In fact, it's almost exactly like lawn darts, but without the pointy danger and those annoying grass stains. Give this one a try if you're hot to make use of that Dreamcast and need to accessorize around the island theme party you've been planning. Even as a rental, Ooga Booga is catchy enough to be the life of any party.

Overall, Ooga Booga is a fun, well-made game with a few annoyances that keep it from being truly great. A concept like this really deserves a sequel, and I'd love to see what Visual Concepts could do if they pushed the idea further. That said, the game is enjoyable, and a good deal at its lower price point. The graphics are smooth and clean, the controls are tight, and the characters are pretty funny. It won't blow your mind, but it's good fun while it lasts. Try it!

Ein gelungenes Multiplayerspiel, welches in keiner Sammlung fehlen sollte.Falls man günstig an dieses Game herankommen kann, sollte man unbedingt zuschlagen.Es fesselt sowohl im Offline- als auch im Onlinemodus und sorgt für puren Spielspaß.

Ooga Booga has some great potential but considering how much focus is placed on the multiplayer aspect and considering all the problems with it online, I’d strongly suggest renting this game first if you’re planning on buying it to play online against other people. If, however, you’re gonna have a group of friends over and play some four-player local tournaments, you’re in for a really good time. I was originally planning on giving this game a score of around 90 due to its simplicity, great AI, and originality. Unfortunately the problems I ran into online (a major part of the game) as well as how incredibly difficult the game gets later in the Tribal Trials (which you need to pass in order to unlock items used in multiplayer) means I have to deduct some serious points, so I’m sorry to say I can only give this game a score of 75.

GameSpot (Sep 17, 2001)
Ooga Booga is a lighthearted and somewhat original game, but it's not quite as addictive as the games it most closely resembles, and its lack of different gameplay modes will cap your desire to keep coming back to it over an extended period of time. Its relatively lower price certainly makes it worth checking out for Dreamcast owners looking for more games to play against the friends they made in Phantasy Star Online, but for those new to the online console world, PSO or the upcoming Bomberman Online may very well be the better, most satisfying inaugural game.

It's true that the small screen makes it difficult to locate enemies and aim weapons, but I've heard that the online mode is much better. Other game variations include a "Boar Polo" sports variation, but it's surprisingly bad. Ooga Booga has simple graphics but loads of personality. It's not a classic, but if you enjoy multiplayer mayhem, give it a shot.
