Summary: By far the most fun and exciting racing game you are likely to play on the PSP. Much better than Nascar and Formula one. the cartoon/arcade style has bags of playability. I played this non stop for hours and you get a real feeling of speed as you whiz around the track! The best thing about this game is the speed, the graphics and the music, all of which show off the PSPs true potential.
Summary: What can I say about this game apart from the fact that when I was younger it was the reason for visiting the local arcade. This was a game in which you got to drive a Ferrari, not only did you drive it but you sat in it too! You sat in a Ferrari Testarossa with a steering wheel and pedals and "drove" your car round the virtual circuit, I must have spent tens of pounds playing it.
Pros: Its Outrun that you can play anywhere, anytime!
Summary: we purchased this game for our 2 sons aged 9 and 5 to share.games are normally fairly expensive but we got this online for 19.99 which i felt was quite reasonable as we bought it just after it was released.After playing this game once the whole family was hooked on it,its really a fun game.there are lots of different tracks and cars to choose from and as you progress through the game you earn outrun miles which you then build up to buy new cars,colours,trcks etc.
Conclusion: I purchased this item cheap, with a few thoughts to the old arcade game. To be honest I was not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised! There is enough to keep you interested, and the game is neither pitched to difficult nor too easy. in the Outrun 2 mode, there is a choice of 10 different Ferrari's to add to the nostalgia, with ghost car mode, racing and a girlfriend challenge mode there is enough to keep you interested.
Summary: I've been playing OutRun in it's various guises since it first appeared in the mid 1980s, so I was hugely excited to get OutRun 2 on Xbox. It was worth the wait. Now we have an extended version not just on Xbox, but also on PS2, PC, and even PSP. The idea of OutRun 2 on the go was just too good to miss. The game is great, a modern classic so I won't go into much detail describing it here. Instead I'll mention a few little PSP issues.
Summary: As already mentioned in previous reviews, this is merely for people who enjoy a quick and simple racing game you can pick up and play. It's also going to be appreciated by fans of the original Outrun, the arcade version and also if you love the tunes. There's no point posting bad reviews - look at it this way, Pacman will always be pacman, tetris will always be tetris and Outrun will always be great!!
Excerpt: "...arcade versions of the original Outrun that were an actual car on hydraulics with a steering wheel - if you loved that then the Outrun 2006: Coast to Coast on the Sony PSP helps recreate that magic. Graphics - super graphics on this game. Not as polished as ridge racer, but these are top notch with only slight slowdown if the screen is really busy. Cars are well represented and there is a real feel of speed as you zoom down the tracks Tracks ...
Pros: Good Graphics, Great Gameplay, On - line Multiplayer
Summary: I was a huge fan of the original Outrun, both in the arcades and on my ZX spectrum. When I saw this i didnt know what platform to buy it on so I went for the PSP, as i guessed it would still be miles better than the tape version I still have up in the loft for the speccy. the 1980s synth tunes are still there, i still hum "the magic sound shower" and "Splash wave" now. The game gets progressivly harder but is still ver addictive. I Love it!
Summary: Personally, i was a massive fan of the original game. This was probably the main reason for buying the title. The 2nd reason is that despite plenty of racing games being out there for the PSP, there arent many that really do the machine or the genre justice. Burnout is great, but not really much of a racer, as so much of your time is spent concentrating on putting others off the road.
