Out Run

Become a real speed demon and put yourself behind the wheel of a classy sports car in Out Run. Race through five stages (out of a possible fifteen) of tyre burning mayhem against trucks, maniac Volkswagens other road nutters! Your car has only the two gears, high and low, and careful use of these is needed to survive some of the bends and twists.

Luckily for the more amateur players there's an option to change the amount of traffic in the game. I just can't walk past an Out Run arcade machine without sticking 20p in. With this version though, you'll be lucky if you can stand having a second go. The graphics are not too bad but it's things like speed, the multi-load and music that let it down.
