Need a good no-brainer racer? Look no further.
I love classic games and bringing them back to the mainstrem of technology--- it makes me very happy. Outrun was one of Sega's biggest games in the 80's. How many quarters did people spend to play this game? I don't know, but it makes me sick to think about it. Outrun was certainly way before its time and was one of the greatest driving games ever in its hay day. Outrun 2 keeps the feeling and faith of the original by giving us the same crazy arcade gameplay with the classic music. The gameplay is nutty, you can drift and powerslide on a corner like there is no tomorrow. It's defintely the immortal feeling of the General Lee, these Ferrari's can do it all. The arcade mode takes after the original and the likes of the classic Pole Position. It's a race to get to the checkpoint, nothing more, you and the clock. Although the arcade mode is a bit limited, as you can finish one race in about 10 minutes, and that's it. But the fun is within the mission mode that gives you more variety and the ability to open new prizes. You can knock over cones, race against other drivers, perfect the powerslide and earn new cars and a even a few new modes. Even better you can take this baby on XBOX Live and duke it out with 8 other racers. Don't worry about this game looking nostalgic, it's a very good looking racer and is every bit as good as Burnout 3 and Rallisport Challenge 2 which are considered tops in the graphics department for racers.
