XboxAxis has posted their review of OutRun 2, giving it a 7.4 out of 10.
"This is NOT a deep game. But is it a fun one. The visuals are good, but nothing that will blow you out of the water, and the sound is something that you’ll have to decide for yourself, especially in the music department. But as a loving dedication to a much-loved racer of the past, it succeeds, and the power-sliding mechanic makes for an outrageous but incredibly fun way to tear through the streets. This game relies more on simple fun—and unlocking huge numbers of items in the Challenge Mode—rather than unrelenting realism to grab gamers’ attention. Definitely worth a spin for fans of the old game, and something worth looking into if you’re tired of “serious” racers like Gran Turism or Forza. Clean simple fun, but then you should expect that from a game that offers a “Magical Sound Shower."
