OutRun Online Arcade Review for Xbox 360 – SEGA Show Arcade Shouldn’t Be Left Behind

outrun11I review OutRun 2 SP, otherwise known as OutRun Online Arcade for the Xbox 360:

Years ago on the original Xbox, I reviewed OutRun 2. Although I was far from feeling the nostalgic glow that the SEGA games from the past usually create in my heart, I did enjoy the experience. At the time, the game just didn’t seem to make much sense as a retail title. You could clearly identify the typical padding to justify the cost and although it did help the longevity, it wasn’t really fooling anyone.

Years later and now we have a whole new way of delivering content thanks to Microsoft’s Xbox Live Arcade and of course Sony’s own version. This has opened a new door for many publishers and SEGA have not been slow to realise its potential. Having already released many classic titles such as Streets of Rage 2, Golden Axe and of course Sonic the Hedgehog, it was only a matter of time before we would see something a little more recent from their immense catalogue.
