  1. By simply making sure that absolutely everything in the game is designed to remove the usual restrictions on fun, Sumo's created something that practically transcends rivals like PGR3 and Burnout before you even done anything.
  2. Instead of a sense of "been there, done that" it will be a wave of comforting nostalgia, like a sea breeze taking you back to days gone by.
  3. An arcade game par excellence, as inviting as the open road and just as compulsive. [Sept 2006, p.104]

    Its more of a single player experience than it is for multiples of people, and in that sense it works nearly perfectly. Car handling is simple, the frame rate is speedy, but more than anything Coast 2 Coast is fantastic fun to play - a quality that many a game bogged down with FMVs and unnecessary complications neglects.
  5. Luckily, thanks to inch-perfect arcade handling, you'll have few complaints. [Aug 2006, p.100]
  6. Sega is firmly established as one the best developers for arcade racers and you don’t need to look further than OutRun 2006 to see why.
  7. It’s unabashedly repetitive, cartoony and not as pretty as many would like, but it’s still the most beautiful journey yet. [Mar 2006, p.96]
  8. An exceptional title; pure, simple, fun, brilliant - I simply can't lay enough superlatives around the game.
  9. The game is simple and very easy to pick-up-and-play. The graphics are awesome. You’ll either rock out and sing along with the music or scramble to turn the volume all the way down.
  10. The PC market should revel in the fact that it can do console games, and do them better than the consoles can. [Sept 2006, p.70]
  11. Coast 2 Coast is amazing fun, and for ten bucks, you can’t go wrong.

Drifting is stupid easy to Arcade racers are one of my favorite types of games and this one is fantastic! It is not a serious game at all. Drifting is stupid easy to and necessary to win. The music is hilariously cheesy, but it goes along well with the game. This game is like a cross between the original outrun and crazy taxi. If that sounds good, then you should definitely pick it up Full Review »

    Without a doubt my favorite racing game of all time. Out of all the ports of this game, the PC version is hands down the best.

    I, like many Racing game likers, have played and enjoyed the NFS series. This game is about 1 hyperbollilionth of the fun that the last NFS I, like many Racing game likers, have played and enjoyed the NFS series. This game is about 1 hyperbollilionth of the fun that the last NFS game gave me. the modes of racing this gives you are both boring and the one where you have to drive around with your virtual girlfriend shouting in your ear about your bad driving. overall: the only reason i actually layed it is that it came free with my pre-order of Football Manager 2010, a hopefully much better game.
