Outrun 2 - Xbox Review
The great thing about Outrun2 is it has changed as little as possible. The developers at Sega have managed to keep the feel incredibly similar to the original. Even the music has been lovingly remixed and you race to jazzed up versions of the original tunes. Graphically there is far more detail but this has been done cleverly and the overall appearance will leave fans of the original feeling all sentimental.
To keep the buyer happy there are a plethora of modes for you to wade through. There are 15 tracks in total and the tracks look absolutely wicked and eight nice looking Ferraris to get to grips with. There is also a mission mode with over 100 missions to complete this is how you unlock all the special features.
The best feature in Outrun2 is the Xbox Live mode you can race with people online and this is where Outrun2 comes to life. Races have up to eight players each and it is very easy to get to grips with the interface. You can keep slots free within a race for your friends and once the race is complete you remain grouped together incase you want to race against the same players again. This mode and the mission mode make for the substance of Outrun2 and with these two modes you will find a high level of re-playability.
To conclude; Outrun2 is a must for any fans of the original. The way the game has been updated and longevity of play has been assured make this title a must. For anybody out there who is just looking to buy a racing title, you should maybe hire Outrun2 before buying it, just to make sure it is what you are looking for.
