|Back in the Stone Age of full-color arcade games, Sega decided to reinvent
the first-person racing game. The end result was Super Hang-On, and it proved
so popular that they decided to retool it as an car racing game, tweaking
the game engine in the process for better performance. Thus was the road
racing legend known as Out Run born. In this series of games, you (and oftimes
your girlfriend riding shotgun) get to take part in a long cross-country
road race that measures not only your endurance but your ability to stay
on the road while avoiding various obstacles, such as other vehicles coming
at and from behind you. Spawned several successors and many, many imitators;
however, its the original that everybody remembers.
In OutRun 2019 the road race is set in the future, but you get to drive a turbo-assisted rocket-powered car on a rather difficult track that has some new hazards not seen in the earlier entries.
