    Sega's classic arcade racer comes to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Based on Outrun 2 SP, it combines new HD graphics and online multiplayer with the classic corner drifting driving style. We see if it's worth jumping into a Ferrari once more or if the game's 20 year old template is getting tired.

    its fun for a nice quick blast but if youve played coast to coast then theres nothing new here. still the achievement thing being retro is quite nice, chasing gumball king is a bitch 14:34 is my best so far :)

    Shouldn't that read "the game is only available available for the PS3 in the US"?

    My main disappointment with this game is the lack of split screen play. But overlooking that, the rest of it is great. As mentioned, there's nothing new compared to C2C (in fact, IIRC C2C had more unlockables with original arcade music and so-on - at least on the PC).

    For the price though, it's a great game :)

    Nope.... US readers will be disappointed *because* the game is only available for the PS3 in Europe, so therefore they won't be able to buy it.

    Agree that lack of split-screen is disappointing. In terms of unlockables, I think C2C and OOA are broadly similar, the difference being in OOA all the cars etc are unlocked from the start.

    CTC was basically outrun 2 with Outrun 2 SP added on, OOA is basically missing a several cars (i think) and all of the outrun 2 course and the classic 1986 music

    It's missing the original Outrun 2 course, but all the cars from Outrun 2 SP are in OOA.

    Ah, yes, you're right, those aren't in OOA - it's a bit tricky to find reliable lists of what was in C2C, and I didn't have a copy to hand when writing the review! My apologies :)
