The first 10 minutes : Outrun 2 Coast to Coast

The first 10 minutes : Outrun 2 Coast to Coast

Old-gen is still (barely) alive and gets a few new interesting from time to time. Outrun 2 Coast to Coast is one of them, even if it is one of those games that you either love or hate. Thankfully I've always loved the Outrun series so I enjoyed playing this new episode a lot. Compared to Outrun 2, this new game has much more content, be it either tracks or game modes, and should last longer than the 2-3 hours it took me before getting bored last year. A game I personally recommend, but be sure to give it a try first!



The video is running at 60 fps, and as with all racing games is very difficult to compress with a good quality. I've had to make more cuts than usual to keep the file from being *way* too big. I've also had a lot of technical issues with this capture, and in the end had to play in a tiny window on my PC instead of on my TV, so I do not play as well as I wanted to. Yes, it's possible for me to play even worse than usual.

This video is from the Xbox version.

Admittedly I haven't checked the video out yet so the answer may lie buried within the confines of the actual -> FILE <-, BUT, if nothing else for social interaction (on the level the net can provide such a thing) I'm asking you, dear Blim. The load times of last year's edition of Outrun 2 were a bit on the up-miffing side and I'm wondering if this one has those narrowed down a wee bit. Challenges were tons of fun in Outrun 2, restarting them wasn't so much.

The load times are very acceptable now. Much better than last year as far as I remember.

I don't think the Xbox is dead yet. It will probably pop it's clogs when the PS2 and GC are dead. God rest this consoles soul.
I remeber playing outrun years ago, it never did grow on me. Hopefully this'll be added to the BC list so i can play it relativly cheaply.

I'm pretty sure it has been asked a gozillion times before, but... does this pure awesomeness work on the x360 in BC?

Is this video as much CPU demanding as Ninja Gaiden video? I wasn't able to play the latter on my PC ;)

Nope it's not. I don't think you'll have a problem with it.

Once upon a time every gamer was on the edge of his/her seat at the mere mention of a Sega game (not to mention a classic like Outrun)
grrrr....i'm going to bed to dream of ''Daytona 360 Full Circle'' (just make the cheque out to Roxwell).

I like the new interface.

Looks like they fixed the (rare) frame rate drops from OutRun2 as well! *thumbsup*
Well, not so much "rare" as isolated; like on that curve along the beach when the city comes into view...
I remember a big, albeit brief, drop in frame rate there.
Didn't see it here :)

This looks like fun actually. I wish there was a 360 version.
Commented on 2006-04-03 13:20:42
Fooo indeed :D

yeah, this has been fun at the arcade. i'll get it as it'll probably be cheap like last year's ;)
