Arcade racing on the best system

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: 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 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.
A cracking driving game that looks as good now as it did all those years ago.

Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: 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.
