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: 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.
Pros: A brilliant game, with lots of playability, a well balanced roster, and stunning visuals.
Cons: Story Mode is a bit dull, with the generic voice acting and predictable story providing no excitement. Can at first be daunting.
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.
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: The OutRun series of arcade racers has a long and storied history, but all you really need to know going into OutRun Online Arcade is that this is a game in which you spend the majority of your time driving Ferraris really, really fast. A handful of different modes that pit you against traffic, other racers, and the whims of your in-car girlfriend serve to keep things interesting, while online leaderboards capture the attention of those with a competitive streak.
Pros: Easy to pick up but challenging to master, Multiplayer is a lot of fun, Online leaderboards are a good incentive to keep playing, Great controls make even insane drifts relatively easy, Impressive sense of speed
Cons: No multiplayer rankings, Less content than previous iterations
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.
