Summary: This game met all my expectations so I'll give 5 stars of 5 for fun. Only problem was when I put the game inside and start it... The game doesnt understand my memory card which is Sony's 4 GB stick. Well I solved out the problem by using smaller memory card.
Summary: SEGA has a long history of producing great arcade games: Space Harrier, After Burner, Golden Axe, Virtua Racer and Virtua Fighter to name a few. In 2006 SEGA decided to remake one of their other arcade classics, Outrun, which was first released 20 years earlier. Outrun 2006: Coast 2 Coast was released on the PS2 and PSP. In case you're not familiar with Outrun here's what it's all about.
OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast (PSP): A whole lot of fun
3 February 2010
Summary: I used to love the old Outrun games in the arcades and older home systems, and I was rather pleased when the series was revisited, and for something so fun and kitschy, the PSP is the perfect medium to bring it back to life. Despite its arcade origins, this isn't a lean game; there's a surprising amount of stuff to do, from the Classic mode, where you dive in a Ferrari with a bimbo and have to race to get to the finish line before the time runs out.
Summary: Rating - 3+ Multiplayer - Yes This is the psp adaptation of outrun 2 and as far as I'm aware it is the exact same game. I first played this game on the arcade machine so I decided to pick it up. There is the traditional outrun mode, heart attack mode where you have to complete challenges, time attack, coast to coast mode and of course the multiplayer mode.There is plenty of replayability here and you should have no problem spending hours at it.
Excerpt: "...play. You can either choose Outrun 2 SP, which is kind of a re-working of the arcade game Outrun 2 with a few improvements added or the Coast 2 Coast version. Outrun 2 SP is considered re-worked because the arcade game was criticised for being too difficult to play, this version is a little easier but still very challenging. Bottom line is that this is a straight game in an arcade style. It does certainly deliver on entertainment as a straight driving ...
Pros: Available on the PSP
Cons: The music - you'll be humming this for days !
Summary: The reason as to why I bought my PSP was simple; I wanted to play a game that I was simply addicted to when I used to go to the arcades when I was on a family holiday at the seaside. The game was Out Run and was originally released back in 1986, the whole setup was a step forward in gaming as this was one of the first games that you actually sat inside with the whole cabinet moving as you played and drove the Ferrari Testarossa from the Start line.
Pros: The legendary game comes to PSP!!
Cons: You won't be able to get the muisc out of your head!
Summary: Back in the old days of banging your cash into the old arcade machines, one of the most popular att he time was Outrun, from what I can remember it was one of the first to actually have a wheel and breaks on it to use which instalntly gained it notariety, I remember playing it for hours on holiday in Spain back than and loving every minute of it.
Excerpt: "...In total the basic OutRun game had 15 levels, but these days 15 levels and a game you can complete in 5 minutes is considered poor so Sega have reinvented the game a little. They've kept the basic premise, but added more cars (all Ferrari), 2 sets of levels, updated the music, added a few gameplay choices and generally sexed the whole thing up for the PSP. If you've played the original, the first thing you'll notice is the graphics. Gone is the ...
Pros: Lots of cars, good graphics, a variation on a theme, serious nostalgia value
Cons: Can be too hard in places, cost of new cars .
Conclusion: I got this game cheap it is a fantastic game and an allrounder. you dont have to like racing games to like it becasue it is soooo fun. i would truly recomend it for others who are thinking of buying it online.
Summary: Ok, here's 5 points for you: 1: The smoothness of outrun is incredible and the speed and graphics are breathtaking and its a joy to play. 2:......for about 1 hour. 3: The game is purely arcade and very shallow. 4: It becomes virtualy impossible at the latter stages. 5: If formula 1 was as fast and smooth as Outrun then it would never be beaten for a driving game on the psp.
