OutRun 2 for the Xbox is an entry in the OutRun series of games. Despite its name and contrary to popular belief, it is not a straight port of the arcade game OutRun 2, instead building on the content seen in OutRun 2's upgrade, OutRun 2 SP. It was created by Sumo Digital and released for the console in 2004.
Outrun 2 offers a variety of game modes for single or multiple players. Each game mode also determines which girl you will ride with.
Lets you play the main Outrun 2 arcade game.
Features several console-exclusive features such as additional challenges and multiplayer.
Up to eight players can play online through custom matches or Time Attack score challenges. You can also download ghost data of the best times from the leaderboards. Because Microsoft discontinued their Xbox Live services for their first Xbox console, this feature is no longer available.
Completing certain challenges will unlock a card that features an element from Outrun 2, Ferrari branded cars or merchandise with some facts. There are 142 cards total.
OutRun 2 on the Xbox retains all the cars from the arcade OutRun 2 and OutRun 2 SP, but adds two new ones.
|The F355 Spider (1995-1999) is similar, but not the same car used in F355 Challenge - the Spider is a soft-top model less equipped to deal with the racing environment.|
|The 328 GTS (1985-1989).|
This OutRun 2 collates the contents of the arcade OutRun 2 and OutRun 2 SP while adding new modes and features, such as 101 "missions", a "heart attack" mode and 8-player online support through Xbox Live, system link or up to four player hotseat. It also adds two extra cars (the F355 Spider and 328 GTS) and a course based on tracks in the Sega Model 3 game Scud Race, as well as one based on tracks from Daytona USA 2: Power Edition.
Aside from working with the same base assets, it is completely unrelated to the PlayStation 2 port of OutRun 2 SP - the PlayStation 2 game, which was also handled by Sumo Digital, is mostly identical to the arcade game.
This version of OutRun 2 was followed by the multi-platform OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast, also developed by Sumo Digital.
