    All,

    So my son just brought me the demo disk from this month's Xbox magazine and lo and behold the cover shows a promo for OutRun 2...with a Ferrari of some sort on the cover. I scanned it in and have attached it here...is that an F50??? I mean, it looks like it has to be, but I didn't know that the F50 was open-topped like that? Pretty nice game...we are gonna play it right now :D

    Cheers,
    Travis

    All F50s (except F50GT) have a removable top for "barchetta" cruising. Actually removing it is something of a PITA and basically requires two people...

    Yes, that's an F50 on the cover. All of them have a removable top except for the racing version.

    While I was waiting for a hard drive in CompUSA today, I played a few races of this game on Xbox. It was alright, and the cars seemed well emulated, but overall I felt the driving mechanics of the game were kind of slow. It felt like you stuff wasn't moving towards you fast enough when you were traveling at 180mph. I have played the arcade game as well, and thought it was better than the Xbox version I played, but still not stupendous. I don't know, maybe I have just been playing rally games too much where moving 60 or 70 MPH seems like you are flying, that when I picked up the controller for this, and was moving at 2.5 times the speed and it seemed like I was standing still it just didn't sit right. Anyways, the cars are still beautiful, and the modes which I haven't played(impress your girl by spinning the car and sliding the car, etc.) seemed like they might be cool. Guess I'll have to get it and find out.

    It's an all Ferrari game (!) but when I played it I didn't particularly like it too much.

    I actually played that demo today at CompUSA... the physics were very "arcade like" which means quite easy/forgiving, but the feel was straight but bland like Sega GT. The sounds were good and the 60fps graphics vibrant and beautiful (with extravagant arcade style backgrounds, typical for Sega, like Daytona USA 2). The music is the same music as Outrun, just updated. The F50 and the 360 in the demo go the same speeds (??).

    In the end, I wouldn't buy this over PGR2 or the upcoming Forza Motorsport.
