I've made a half hour discussion video all about Outrun 2 and it's variants Coast 2 Coast, Online Arcade and SP as well as some of the regional differences in the games between Eastern and Western releases. If you're a fan of the series please check it out.
For me the pc version is the best version with the steering wheel and the FFB and the bloom fix. Great video. Could you recap the pros and cons here in text? With the exception of the PSP all versions of the game ran at 60fps. Easy to use system link for I think a maximum of 6 players? To me, feels like the hardest version of the game. It also included extra cars bringing the total up to 15 and special souped up versions of all the regular cars. I was always under the impression though that the slight quality drop was due to the fact that Coast 2 Coast just contained so much more content than the original Outrun 2, so some compromises had to be made.
It's not super noticeable, but the anti-aliasing on the cars seems a tiny bit more jaggy and the draw distance on the road markings isn't quite so good.
The Japanese version of C2C on the PS2 had it's name changed back to Outrun 2 SP and had some end of stage animations from the arcade version of OR2SP added back in that are missing from all the other home versions and also some extra music too. It's also the only version of C2C that has working force feedback for steering wheels. Arguably easier than OR2. Collisions are punished far more severely in Outrun 2, with the player losing a lot of speed if you drift into traffic or a CPU opponent.
Coast 2 Coast by comparison seems to allow you to pretty much plough through other cars, trucks and buses with only minimal speed loss.
The hack also allows you to swap out music in the game and change the appearance of parts of the in game menus to appear more arcade like as well as lots of other stuff. By simply cutting and pasting a file called lens flare offset.
With all these fixes added to the game it is now arguably the best version of Coast 2 Coast. Despite the lack of rumble, the game handles really well and has the easier handling of C2C rather than OR2. Was playable online back in the day, but no local system link options.
Also supports FFB and network play. Doesn't feature all the content from Coast 2 Coast, with some cars missing and none of the challenge modes.
The graphics can apparently be problematic when played in Tekknoparrot without certain downloadable fixes. PC version, played with all the fixes using a wheel is the best version for my money.
Great comparison. I actually use the Coast 2 Coast PC edition on my machine so happy that it is a decent version. And the flakky TP edition has unfortunately too many issues to be considered right now unfortunately: random crashes, black roads, shadows, and it does not seem like Reaver will ever fix it. The only thing that annoys me is the low res UI textures in the PC version. Is there a hack for that?

Fortunately, I don't always follow her advice or I wouldn't be able to write up a review on OutRun 2. OK, seriously, do they expect people to buy this game?
I could get the same arcade-like cardboard driving experience playing Pole Position II down at the local grocery store. I'll pause here and let you yell at me for a few seconds, all you fans of the Outrun franchise. I know that OutRun 2 is not meant to be a realistic racer, it's a port of an arcade game.
But the problem is it's a port of a very dated arcade game. The graphics are cartoony, the sound effects are more for nostalgia than any other sort of enjoyment and the game mechanics are infantile. There are a total of two buttons you use for the game. There's the gas and then there's the brake. You can drift, but this is accomplished only by breaking through a turn without using your gas.
Once you're in the drift you can gas up again but this trigger juggling makes no sense and leaves you feeling like the game can't handle two button inputs at the same time. If you are a huge fan of OutRun 2 and don't mind that the mechanics haven't really changed with the times, you'll love this game. You can just pick it up and play, heck my 3-year-old son just picked it up and played. Then again after a minute or two he declared the game 'silly'?
The game includes eight different fully licensed Ferraris to choose from and there are more than 15 branching tracks to race on.
You can play in the Outrun Arcade which includes the classic timed outrun mode, the heart attack mode and time attack mode. In the Outrun challenge you can choose to try and complete tasks, run through single races or play against four others, taking turns to try and land the best time. The game does feature online play through Xbox Live, allowing up to eight players to go it head-to-head and this is where the game does best.
Although I'm not a fan of the mechanics, graphics or audio, the online play manages to make the best of the situation in a nearly lag-free environment. When compared to the bigger and better racers to hit the market recently, and certainly Burnout 3 tops that list, OutRun 2 just doesn't cut it.
The gameplay is too much an arcade experience, and while it may be fun for some initially, I doubt anyone will keep this game in their collection long. Browse games Game Portals.

More Coming Soon Pressing the brake button in-game on a song that does NOT have an alt track or the random slot in 2sp mode allows you to switch to the alternate tracks. After that you can extract these rars to your outrun folder and they will automatically go in the correct place. Then install texture packs again from fxtcfg. Thanks so much for the hard work you have put into this.

I'm a huge Outrun 2 junkie, it's one of my top favorite arcade games right beside Berzerk. However, I have just today learned of an Xbox port which I've read actually differs significantly from the Outrun game that I have, beyond simply being an 'expanded' port of Outrun 2.
Given this information, I'm interested in tracking down and trying Outrun 2 on the Xbox, so that I can have the 'original' so to speak in addition to the Outrun on my PC. However, I am hitting a major wall for both of these games. Quite simply, every port of Outrun 2 I've played so far has clearly suffered from not having a wheel and pedals. I have spent many an hour playing this game over and over in arcades, and it simply isn't the same to use a controller or god help me!
I have reached the conclusion that I simply must obtain a wheel, but I don't know anything about wheels or which ones to look for to use on the original Xbox and PC.
So the question is, what is the best wheel for Outrun 2 on Xbox?
It should also work on original Xbox and on PC, and any other platforms supported are just gravy. Also, if there's any additional perks to a wheel then I'd love to hear them, but the only real goal is to get as close to the authentic Outrun 2 arcade experience as I can.
Thanks for reading, and hope you can help me out! Hi Chris. Not to mention it has better graphics. I also mentioned some specific things about the PC version regarding steering wheel support that you will need to know before playing it.
