Arcade style racing action meets challenge based skills driving. Driving between different zones to reach the finish point with choices of which route to take along the way means you can select the difficulty along the way. This is the sequel to the original arcade classic and has a very similar style graphically and gameplay.
While the previous OutRun games featured fictional "lookalike" cars, SEGA licensed the likeness of Ferrari cars in OutRun 2. The classic red convertible racer used in the series is now officially a Ferrari Testarossa.
