General and high profile video game topics.
To me Horizon Chase doesn’t really feel like Outrun. It feels kind of boring in comparison. Don’t really know why, it just does. It seems to lack character.

It's more intended as a spiritual sequel to Top Gear for the Super Nintendo rather than Sega's Outrun. Tons of nods to it, including the soundtrack that was composed by the same person.
If the Critic is missing arcade games, I suggest buying Top Gear and experiencing one of the best sprite scaling racers of all-time (I assume he isn't familiar with it since it's never been reviewed here).
I've been on the fence about Horizon Chase. It seems like a racer I would enjoy, but watching videos of it, it seems a little on the simple side and thus maybe boring. Yet there are some favorable reviews. So I didn't buy it yet. Anybody want to sing praises or burn effigies if the game?
Besides Onrush there's Grip (spiritual successor to the Rollcage games), Trailblazers (arcade racer with Splatoon-like ground painting mechanic), and (coming next month) Dangerous Driving (spiritual successor to the Burnout games). None are particularly high-profile games, but I hope to pick-up one or two of them.
