  1. An all too familiar Sega story: a refreshing new take on an old genre, featuring great control, sharp graphics, but crippled by lack of depth.

    No real levels have been added to the original arcade version, so the game ends just when you’re revving up.
  3. 78
    A blast while it lasts, but when you're done, you won't find much more fun. 10-4 that, good buddy.
  4. The game is fun when you sit down with it, but two hours later you'll have seen everything there is to see.
  5. It isn't that the game isn't solid and fun. It's just that most players will wonder why they didn't just stick a couple of bucks in the arcade machine instead.
  6. Sharp graphics, explosive action, and an Internet multiplayer mode earn a big ten four.
  7. I suggest gamers shortchange Sega by spending only $3.99 to rent this miniscule title that will only be enjoyable truly for a weekend or so of fun.

The Outrun of the Dreamcast era. Straightforward fun with amazing details - just tlook at the stuff sliding around your dashboard. Everything what's hot about Sega's arcade prowess is featured in this title and it's just done right: Thrill, exaggeration, playability, charisma, vibrancy. It is what it is and it does not lack anything in respect to what it wants to be. I love it and yes, I would have loved more of it. Expand

    Short but fun. Excellent inertia effects on the truck and some solid graphics along the way.

    Anyone who gave this game a 10 has probably not played it for longer than five minutes
