Summary: I must agree that OutRun is one of the Sega racing games and I like the game. I am currently using an XBOX 360 to play this game and I was down to the choice of this (OutRun 2) or the other (OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast) and I chose this. Here is a report I took from arcadecontrols.com, and this is why I chose it: Graphics: Between the two Xbox versions the only notable graphical difference is that the bloom effect in 2006 is toned down compared to Outrun 2.
Summary: Outrun 2 is a long awaited sequel to a quality arcade racer. This new installment to the Xbox is a nice change from simulation racers such as the Gran Turismo series, that being said if simulation is what your looking for then steer clear of this game. Not to say its bad but it isnt a game that is meant to have depth, if you have a spare 5 minutes you can have a zip around the track.
Summary: Most of you probably already know that Outrun 2 is a sequel to an old arcade racer that was released many moons ago. It came as a shock when Seag announced they were bringing the franchise kicking and screaming into the noughties. And now it's on the Xbox! Even though it has been giving a major graphical make-over the way the game is presented pretty much stays rooted in the golden era of gaming. You have a choice of around 8 Ferarri motors.
Summary: How do I begin, well at the age of mid forties I've seen the evolution of many gaming platforms from primative pong to the revevolution of PC Hardware. But the arcade games of the the eighties ruled supreem, Put your coin in the slot and have fun, if you were crap you moved over to a to a different machine and deposit your wealth there until you found the game you love.
