Conclusion: OutRun Online Arcade is OutRun. Did you like OutRun last time you played it? Do you like it enough to pay 800 MS Points for it and rack up some Achievements? Do you like it enough to play against your friends? These are the questions you must ask yourself before buying, if you haven’t taken the plunge already, of course. As far as this reviewer is concerned, if you haven’t played the game already, then you really owe it to yourself to give it a try.
Conclusion: OutRun ’s achievements are about as straightforward as they come. If you play well and play frequently, you will be successful; none of this Easter Egg crap or impossibly complex goals. Yes, you will have to venture online (it’s kind of what this game is all about anyways) and perform well in this realm, but everything here is achievable with a little practice.
Conclusion: There are plenty of gaming for money, and you go after the game's achievements, one can expect many extra hours with both frustration and enjoyable entertainment. All one could desire, was far more lanes, but overall, Outrun Online Arcade highly recommended and is definitely one of the year's best arcade titles.
Conclusion: SoulCalibur V improves on previous iterations in nearly every department, providing a deeper and more challenging experience whilst still allowing it to be very accessible. Requiring more skill than its Namco stablemate Tekken , it can at first appear a daunting experience, but the game soon draws you in until you’re addicted.
Excerpt: Once again in the hands of the supremely capable Sumo Digital, OutRun Online Arcade is essentially a home port of the OutRun 2 SP arcade machine. Whereas previous home console and PSP title OutRun Coast 2 Coast featured a whole heap of additional content and all the courses from OutRun 2 and SP, this is very much what you might expect to get for 800 MS Points. The core arcade mode is here alongside a capable six-player online offering, but that's more or less your lot.
Excerpt: Longtime fans of the racing genre no doubt have some experience with Sega and its storehouse of legendary arcade racers. After all, there was the original OutRun cabinet that used to line the walls of Dairy Queens and Pizza Huts in the 1980s, the Daytona USA multi-cabinet grids that would rake in quarters at skating rinks and putt-putt golf courses, and the more niche Sega Rally games that eventually crept into the then-massive Chuck E. Cheese franchise.
Pros: Classic, OutRun gameplay intact., Great HD facelift., Online leaderboards, ghosts.
Cons: No traffic online., Poor collision physics., Lacks content, personality.
Excerpt: Some things will always remind you of your childhood and for me, Sega’s classic racer OutRun is one of them. We’ll put the home versions of OutRun Europa, Turbo OutRun and OutRun 2019 to one side when we consider that statement since – by and large – they sullied the good name of the original. When Sumo Digital were tasked with updating OutRun for the 21 st century, they didn’t go far wrong.
