I am really stunned by the quality of this game. The control is excellent and the variety of courses really add to the fun of the game. I like the new jumps, and the fact that there are 20 or so stages makes Outrun 2019 much better than the original.

Avec moins de charme et moins de couleurs chaudes par rapport à OutRun, j’ai quand même bien aimé cet opus. Les musiques sont de bonne facture, (sans être du même niveau qu’un "Splash Wave") et le jeu possède une ambiance futuriste plaisante qui ne plaira certainement pas à tout le monde. Néanmoins OutRun 2019 possède le même plaisir et diversion de jeu que le hit de l’AM#2 !

The controls are simple - just hold down the accelerator and steer. Every few minutes your turbo boost kicks in, but it's so unimpressive you might not even notice. The early stages are a cakewalk; you can practically ride through the oncoming cars. In the later stages they can run you off the road, but the game immediately puts you right back on the track. The only thing you really need to worry about is falling off bridges or flipping your car. The audio is awful, and the monotonous background music drones on endlessly, even when you pause the game. Outrun 2019 has plenty of glitz, but it can't hide the shallow gameplay.

Outrun 2019 è una delusione. Il titolo SEGA sviluppato da DU SIMS ha ben poco a che vedere con il capolavoro assoluto dal quale prende, purtroppo, solo il nome.

But through all the highs and lows, Outrun 2019 never ceases to be a lot of fun if you can overlook how shallow it is. I catch myself coming back to it far more than I expected to, because it's really fun to play and I enjoy exploring all the forks in the road, just to see the different environments and background graphics. If you play games by yourself frequently and you just happen to be looking for a mildly engaging racing title to add to your collection, go ahead and hunt down Outrun 2019. Just don't expect it to entertain you for hours on end or for it to be jam-packed with interesting options or originality.

Sure, the car's fast, but that's the only challenge here. You don't even race opponents - only the clock. The special features seem to be afterthoughts. Blah.
