Coast 2 Coast's only downfall is that it's essentially just an update of OutRun2, and owners of that game might find it a bit samey. But if you consider that it includes all 15 tracks from the arcade game - which are new to Xbox - improved handling, more flash cars and kick-ass music, as well as some completely new challenges, this is one hell of an update. And Sega has even thrown in a perfect port of the arcade game (in the form of the OutRunSP2 mode) just for good measure, so surely it's well worth the purchase.
OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast is the videogame definition of fun. It makes absolutely no effort to be 'realistic' or 'serious', and that's what makes it so good. Forget racing lines, braking points, car damage and all that stuff. You slam the pedal to the metal and only ease up momentarily to dab the brake and get your car sliding ridiculously round tight bends. Your driver and his demented girlfriend punch the air in utter excitement, and that exactly how this game makes you feel, too.
So OutRun2 didn't sell too well. Never mind - we'll forgive you, just as long as you get your butt to the shops and grab this now. Because if you know anything about good games, you'll love it as much as we do.
Outrageous racing with crazy challenges and gorgeous graphics. This is pure, undiluted fun on a disc.
