The third game in the OutRun series, which revolutionised the third-person perspective style of racing games. The levels are set across Europe, as you bid to escape from the police. Unlike other titles in the series, you use a different vehicle on each level, with motorbikes and jet-skis adding variety and taking different skill to use. You must complete each level within the strict time limits, and the routes are dogged with other vehicles to avoid and overtake. You can choose between sound effects or music.

Development on the game (which is an original product based on OutRun, not an arcade conversion) originally began not long after the Amiga conversion of the first OutRun was released in 1988. By early 1989 it was previewed in magazines of the day, but the release of the Turbo OutRun arcade game, and US Gold's subsequent conversion, meant that it was pushed aside and not completed for another 2 1/2 years.
