Cyber Troopers Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram (電脳戦機バーチャロン オラトリオ・タングラム, Dennō Senki Bācharon Oratorio Tanguramu) is a 1998 Japanese Sega Model 3 arcade game that was later ported to the Sega NAOMI arcades and then later for the Dreamcast home console in Japan in 1999 and North America in 2000. The game is a sequel to the 1995 video game Virtual On: Cyber Troopers.

Gameplay[edit]

Oratorio Tangram is a 3D fighting game where the player assumes control of a giant humanoid robot.[4]

Reception[edit]

Stephen Frost reviewed the Dreamcast version of the game for Next Generation, rating it three stars out of five, and stated that "VOOT truly is an impressive game, and practically a perfect conversion, marred by difficult controls and a lack of 'compatibility' with the standard Dreamcast controller. However, if you're willing to invest the necessary time, you'll eventually discover that the game provides one of the most addictive and deep gaming experiences currently available on Dreamcast."[5]
