I gave it a go a few years ago. I don't remember it being "horrible", but it definitely overestimated how much of a hook scooting through tunnels could be. Basic and repetitive. There's a spin-off rail shooter called Viper that looks much better, although I haven't played it myself. Wikipe...
Worth pointing out is that while later games often used custom microcode for better performance, developers picked up a nasty habit of pushing the machine over its limits. A game like Perfect Dark doesn't have a bad frame rate because of poor optimization (far from it!) but because of a deliberate d...
If you watch some of DF Retro videos on the N64 it track record for framerate was shaky compared to PS1 and Saturn, I am guessing it the carts that held back the frame rate. Storage medium is completely irrelevant to processing. The main issues were poorly optimized GPU microcode and significant RA...

The only Nintendo system that I'd compare the Dreamcast to is the GameCube. Technically advanced but hampered by weird proprietary disks that weren't DVDs, weak on multiplatform games but strong on exclusives. They both misjudged the market around Y2K in the same way and paid the same price, if much...

Re: Ninjabread Man (Wii) OMG, this infamous piece of Wii Shovelware is a terrible as people makes it out to be!
I'm impressed that it apparently threw a fit and glitched out before you even played it, a true feat of programming. It's nice when a game pushes technical boundaries.
