Any game with a Delorean in it is good.

Anyone that says otherwise is your enemy.

Sadly this is an iOS/Android port. It seems it comes with some extras but the core gameplay is pretty boring. And dammit, my son is gonna ask me to buy it anyways. laugh

It's not a port of the mobile version according to the announcements; it's a different game and was built from the ground up with much more content and features. So hopefully it plays a lot better than a mobile game if they put that much effort into it!

I like the look of it but can't help but think this is another missed opportunity for online play. Haven't had anyone to split-screen with in a decade.

Looks nice.

Will probably have an achievement for four player split screen though.
This post may be sarcastic.

Looks good but I’m worried that all 110 tracks will end up looking the same and won’t be anything special. My favorite classic racers had fewer - but much more memorable and fun - tracks. Games like Rush and Beetle Adventure Racing only had a half dozen but they were all great, with different routes you could take.

I quire like the simple graphical style, after the past twenty years of realistic racers it's nice to see a much simpler format akin to the racers of the 80s to mid 90s.

I wouldn't mind giving this game a try once it's out.

I thought this was gonna be pc/PS4 only. I’m glad to see it’s coming to X1

What I mean is the racing style seems identical to the mobile version which of course feels decidedly “mobile,” which is what I don’t like about it. Definitely pretty though and probably good enough for a five year old at the very least.

That's an awesome looking game with four player split screen. I want it.

Something looks strange to me. I don't know if the extreme colorful graphics or the blockiness of the objects like trees and stones.
Might be fun though.

Beetle Adventure Racing is one of the most fun arcade racers ever. Very underrated. So glad someone mentioned this great game. You made my day :)

Nice, basicly Outrun with low poly gfx. I like to try it.

I always wanted to buy Outrun Online Arcade but it got delisted shortly after i started to use the online functions of the Xbox360.

So i'm really happy that we soon have the option to get an even better looking game that probably will not have the same problems that might lead to another delisting because of incompetent long-term planning.

But still, i would rather like to see a game like OutDrive.

I definitely see Cruis'n USA in this. Loved that game.
