Power Stone 2 (Sega Dreamcast)
TrickStyle (Sega Dreamcast, PC)
Not only was TrickStyle a sports game, it was an extreme sports game. And not only was it an extreme sports game, it was a futuristic extreme sports game. It’s 2017 an you’re wondering where your hoverboard is. It turns out it was in this 1999 game published by Acclaim for the Sega Dreamcast and PC.
While this may technically be classified is a sports game of sorts, it plays more like a racer. In fact, it was probably compared more to games like Wipeout than anything else. The game is set in the future and the player can race their hoverboard or do stunts through the cities of London, Tokyo and New York (and there is also a practice area). In general, this game got pretty good reviews with the Dreamcast version being a little better than the PC version.
TrickStyle was released on GOG.com in 2015 and on Steam in early 2017. I wouldn’t call it a must play game but if you have a Dreamcast you can probably track it down pretty cheap, or alternatively you can get it on GOG.com for only about $7. If you like this kind of game it’s well worth the cheap price.
TrickStyle had no official sequel but there was a similar game created by the same development studio in 2002 for the PlayStation 2 called AirBlade that could have just as easily been called TrickStyle 2.
