And the racing game Crazy Taxi and the game Jet Set Radio about rebellious youth being pursued by the police were stars of the early 2000s. They were created for Sega's fifth and final gaming console, the Dreamcast.
Over the decades of its existence, Sega has released several game franchises that have brought in millions.. In particular, Sonic the Hedgehog, Total War and Yakuza. Sonic the Blue Hedgehog became and still remains Sega's true mascot..

With a budget of $110 million, the film grossed more than $235 million. On IMDB the rating of the film is 6.5/10.
