Game Description:Virtual On was a critical and popular hit in Japan, and something of a cult classic in America. The game is best known for it's controllers, two large twin sticks with a single fire button on each. Oratorio Tangram is an update to Virtual On and features two new mechs and revised play mechanics. Although the arcade version saw limited distribution in the U.S., it was an instant classic on both sides of the Pacific.
Virtual On Oratorio Tangram isn't the typical fighting game by any stretch of the imagination. You pilot a giant Gundam-like machine in a 3-D arena armed with three different weapons which can have altering effects depending on the situation their employed and the movement of your mecha. The game is one of a handful which supports the Dreamcast link cable, so you if you have it and can find two sets of twin sticks, you can really enjoy the arcade in your homes, which is helpful since only five of the arcade cabinets actually made it to the US.
