Famed AM2 designer Yu Suzuki's 1986 arcade breakthrough is updated for a new generation in OutRun2. Once again, players hop behind the wheel of a souped-up Ferrari and head for the horizon, as fast as they can handle it (and often, maybe a little too fast). Like the original, this sequel features numerous environments — deserts, snowy mountains, tropical forests, foggy hills — which change as players race from one international location to the next.
Eight different Ferrari models are available in OutRun2: The Enzo, Dino 246 GTS, 365 GTS/4 Daytona, Testarossa, 360 Spider, 288 GTO, F40, and F50. The game is playable over the Xbox Live service, where racers can also upload and download "ghosts" of best runs, to see how they stack up against real-life competitors. The in-game radio was another important feature of the arcade game, and Outrun2 features remixes of original tunes like "Magical Sound Shower" and "Passing Breeze." ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
