Summary: Arcade racers are one of my favorite types of games and this one is fantastic! It is not a serious game at all. Drifting is stupid easy to and necessary to win. The music is hilariously cheesy, but it goes along well with the game. This game is like a cross between the original outrun and crazy taxi.
Summary: I, like many Racing game likers, have played and enjoyed the NFS series. This game is about 1 hyperbollilionth of the fun that the last NFS game gave me. the modes of racing this gives you are both boring and the one where you have to drive around with your virtual girlfriend shouting in your ear about your bad driving. overall: the only reason i actually layed it is that it came free with my pre-order of Football Manager 2010, a hopefully much better game.
Summary: For a game made in 2006 by a company that has supported the Logitech USB wheel sin the past (and on a Ferrari licensed game) to not support it on this game, which is a port essentially of an arcade game is just incomprehensible. In defense of the game; the graphics are nice to good, the physics are what they should be for a fun (non-sim) arcade racer and the fact that they made good on their Ferrari licensing are all huge positives for this game.
Summary: As someone who grew up in the 80s and loved the original Out Run Arcade game this is a wonderful update, ok it may not have the graphics or sound to rival the latest games but what it lacks in that department it sure makes up for in gameplay. The unlockable tunes and cars plus all the different arcade modes make for the most fun I have had in a racing game for years.
Summary: You can't compare this one to other racing games out there. Dan's comment is correct if you haven't played the original Outrun - the game will seem a little 'cartoony' as he put it. Since it's done in arcade style, the emphasis is on fun, not realism. But Sega are doing exactly the right thing, paying homage to the original with the same goofy feel that made it so much fun. For anyone who remembers the original, they will love it.
Summary: the game was alright. There wasnt as much entertainment as something like Need for Speed Most Wanted. Can get repetitive after a while, and also boring. The graphics were a bit to drawn out or cartoonish, and not really realistic. Overall..its average.
Great game but doesn't work on PS2 compatible PS3.

Summary: One of the great games I kept when I sold my PS2 after getting my Playstation 3. I got mine a shortly after they came out so I have a backwards compatible model great......except that frustratingly this is the only game I have tried that doesn't work. Granted I get the title screen but, click to play and it just hangs...oh why must you tease me so. I'm so close to buying an old PS2 just to play this.
