Outrun 2006: Coast 2 Coast review

  • Pure arcade experience
  • Classic gameplay
  • Pretty damn fun
  • Not much in terms of challenge
  • A little shallow at times
  • Handling will upset purists

Unless you live near a motorway, regularly break the law or are easily thrilled at low speeds, driving is, in reality, a bit dull.

Not only that, but skidding around corners doesn't work like it does in games like Outrun, where getting around bends takes nothing more than a flick of the wrist and a tap of the brakes before you can sit back and let entirely untrue physics carry you along safely. Coast 2 Coast offers as pure an arcade racer as you could imagine, remaining loyal to the series in almost every aspect.

Over its 30 tracks and its 15 cars, the challenge resides in shaving seconds off your best times, while an odometer which runs constantly unlocks new content as you hit certain mileages. Coast 2 Coast is amazing fun, and for ten bucks, you can’t go wrong.
