The formula for OutRun was perfected in the very first game and the sequels can't really hope to surpass the original game in terms of the impact they have had on gamers. That said, OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast is as good an OutRun game as you could hope for on either the PSP or PlayStation 2. The interconnectivity between the two versions is excellent and it's one of the few games where it is worth buying the two versions if you're an OutRun enthusiast. If you can only afford the one version then you can't really go wrong with either version as both are excellent. OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast is certainly the best arcade racer on the PlayStation 2 and the best racer so far (arcade or otherwise) on the PSP in our opinion.

The point's been made before on these pages, but OutRun2 draws it out again: SEGA is brilliant at five-minute racing games.There are 15 stages, laid out like balls in a snooker triangle; as you get to the end of each one in your Ferrari, you adjust the difficulty by taking the left path for an easier ride or right for a tougher one. All you're up against is the clock, and your only obstacles are the indecently curvaceous undulations and turns in the track, often peppered with slow-moving traffic.

Erstmal das ungläubige Lob: Wie zum Teufel hat Sumo Digital es hinbekommen, dass alle drei Versionen fast gleich gut aussehen? Das hat bislang kein Entwickler auf die Reihe bekommen! Okay, die optischen Fortschritte bei der Xbox-Fassung kann man mit dem Mikroskop suchen, wirklich hundertprozentig flüssig sind weder PS2- noch PSP-Fassung – aber das Ganze sieht in Bewegung so großartig aus, dass mir Meckereien im Detail völlig wurscht werden. Tonnen von freispielbarem Material, ein unkompliziert-arcadiges Fahrmodell, intelligent designte Levels, problemloser Mehrspielermodus – für den schnellen Raserhunger zwischendurch ist Coast 2 Coast genauso gut geeignet wie der Vorgänger, wenn nicht besser. Längerfristig mangelt es dem Game bewährt an Abwechslung, außerdem finde ich es schade, dass man nicht per Splitscreen oder Hotseat gegeneinander antreten darf. Spaß macht es trotzdem – und zwar eine ganze Menge!

Hold on to your Chalupa because the king of fast-food-racing is about to kick it up a notch. Any old-school Sega fan (who hasn’t thrown himself in front of a taxi by now) will tell you that OutRun is the ultimate form of arcade-style racing; tasty, bite-sized chunks of highway littered with rivals and drones where the simple task of crossing the line before the timer hits zero becomes your only care in the world.

Kurzweilige Arcade-Raserei mit viel Umfang und ansehlicher Optik - ideal für zwischendurch.

In 1986, mastermind Yu Suzuki and his development team at AM2 were responsible for many an arcade classic for Sega, including the likes of After Burner and Hang-On. But then they introduced a breezy new arcade racer called Outrun, and the arcade world got turned upside down with its fast-paced antics and the inclusion of a nagging girlfriend if you drove just a bit too harshly and resulted in the flipping of your fancy Ferrari. Now, twenty years later, Sega carries on the tradition, with the help of Sumo Digital, with the release of Outrun 2006: Coast 2 Coast. We dug the PS2 version, but what of the portable edition for Sony PSP?

I totally see the merit of the PSP version of OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast, because it offers the one coveted feature that Ridge Racer and Burnout Legends do not... online play. The PlayStation 2 version also offers online play, but I just can't bring myself to wholeheartedly recommend that particular iteration of the game. It's a matter of perspective.

Customization is the hottest thing happening in racing games right now. Buy new parts, slap on some 20s and proceed to tear ass through the city streets as the crowd gawks in awe. You won't find any of that in OutRun 2006 Coast 2 Coast. This is arcade racing at its finest, with no other emphasis besides roaring through course after branching, hairpin-littered course. In fact, the over-the-top nature of OutRun requires near-constant power-sliding and uncanny evasion skills, rather than grease monkey prowess.

It's been about a year and a half since the OutRun series was remade for the Xbox in the form of OutRun2. That game was a pretty simple but fun arcade racer that effectively captured the spirit of the original arcade game. This time around, Sega has chosen to release OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast for the PlayStation 2 and the PlayStation Portable, in addition to the Xbox. The new game doesn't stray very far at all from the formula established by OutRun2, offering gameplay that largely feels the same as the previous game, but with a good deal more content to explore and unlock.

I feel bad for Sega and its timing of the release of the new OutRun games. In 2004, the company released OutRun 2 for the Xbox. It was the long overdue sequel to Sega's 1986 arcade hit. About a month and a half prior, EA had released its acclaimed Burnout 3: Takedown. Given the proximity of the release dates, OutRun 2 got a lot of unfair comparisons to Takedown, despite the fact they they're rather different types of racing games.

OutRun 2006 : Coast 2 Coast pourrait être comparé à un enjoliveur chromé dont la surface polie cache des heures et des heures d'entretien. Joli, jouable, peaufiné dans ses moindres détails et surtout très fun, le titre de Sega affiche une mine réjouie sur la console portable de Sony en offrant au joueur une réalisation impeccable. A ce stade, je ne vois pas vraiment ce qui pourrait vous arrêter dans votre achat, d'autant que le compteur de vitesse poussé à bloc ne vous vaudra ici aucune perte de points.

There’s a lot of content in the new Outrun 2006, but for good or bad, much of it will be very familiar to players of the earlier entries. Strike that, it’s actually really, really familiar. Highlights are the multiplayer races, a full version of OutRun SP from arcades, new cars and new locations. While some of the content is new, the game plays exactly the same – fast, thick with the flavor of classic arcades, and kind of simplistic. The PSP version, surprisingly, was my favorite, and it might be because it just feels right to do some quick cruising on a portable.

Twenty years ago, Yu Suzuki launched OutRun, a high speed road race across the country. With your Ferrari and your girlfriend by your side, you set out to scorch the asphalt, choosing your path and passing checkpoints to keep the ride going. Now, two decades later, Sega's popular racing game returns in OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast with new modes, redesigned levels and additional cars. However, take that with a grain of salt; if you've played (or own) 2004's OutRun 2, you're basically getting a rehash of that title with a couple of extra features added on.
