Outrun 2006 PSP review
Andrew D. Bremer, Amazon
15 February 2007
Summary: This is a perfect port of the PS2 game. It is a very unique formula for a racing game, in which you continue to different areas without stopping. It gives the feel of an adventure-racing game. There are 30 tracks, 15 new ones and all the tracks from Outrun 2 for the X Box. You can play the original Outrun 2 game, or a mission mode where tracks from the 2 games are combined in a series of races.
Summary: I don't think that this is really worth playing on the bigscreen. Arcade racers are slowly fading away for overly technical, confusing, hard racers such as Forza that take too much time to complete. These games are just fun, there's no worrying about tuning your car, and there's no boring race tracks where you race across totally generic race t racks that you wouldn't pay a dime to see in real life. Just put it in, turn it on, and race race race!!!!!!
Summary: I seem to recal seeing only one ad, in a magazine, for OutRun 2006 Coast 2 Coast. Then, I heard nothing. I thought that the game had been cancelled then I saw it at EB games in the clearance bin. After I bought it I was amazed that it had gotten no press what so ever. The graphics were crisp and clean, it sounded great, fairly simple controls, and it only cost me 15 dollars. There are loads of unlockables and I found the game very addictive.
Summary: What a beautiful little game! This is a minature, updated version of "Outrun 2," which originally appeared on the arcade and XBOX about two years ago. It's a 20th-anniversary homage to the 1986 game "Outrun," which was the first driving game to feature real force-feedback steering. The arcade machine's steering wheel had a powerful motor in it which would pull your hands the other way as you went around tight turns.
Summary: I'm glad to see OutRun 2006 paid homage to the 1986 arcade classic; I'm glad the PSP port was almost perfect and the graphics, sound and (specially) music stayed true to this great and fun driving game. I was a little dissapointed with the XBOX OutRun 2, because I don't have an XBOX to play it. But this hand-held version is just what I wanted, an more.
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.
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.
