after reading what you said i found it on an abandonware site and the PC version is pretty awesome!

Ended up buying Outrun 2 based on the reviews. Maybe I hyped it up too much in my head, but for me personally so far it's been a grade or two lower. For me, a big part of the issue is the lack of depth and replay value.. like the first few runs are great, but I wonder how many times I can do the same race over and over. It's hard for me to love a game that would wear out its welcome that quickly. But I want to give it a couple more plays first (although I haven't felt motivated to go back to it).

You're somewhat constrained now since Xbox Live is dead. The online leaderboards back when this title was younger added a ton of replayability to the standard single player arcade mode.

I don't know about everyone else, but working to top my own score is a bit of a hollow victory. But being able to work my way up a list of human competition is a heck of a lot of fun and reminiscent of trying to get the top score on an actual arcade cabinet back in the day.

Thankfully a taste of that is still possible for owners of Outrun Online Arcade on the Xbox 360, where as the online services for all other versions of the game (Including the PS3 release of Outrun Online Arcade) are long since defunct.

Aren't there a bunch of different modes in Outrun 2? Along with a slew of unlockables?
