Last Updated on June 19, 2023

On newsstands now is Retro Gamer 247, which dedicates several pages to Outrun 2.

Developed and published by Sega in 2003, Outrun 2 is the sequel to the original OutRun game released in 1986, albeit one that ignores the existence of Turbo Outrun and Outrunners. The game features high-speed racing on various tracks with exotic landscapes and backgrounds. Players can choose from a variety of cars and compete in various modes, including time attack, checkpoint mode, and outrun mode. It was praised for its graphics, sound, and addictive gameplay. The game was later ported to Xbox, PlayStation 2, and PC.
