    Both games are really just the same simple game over and over and over again that noone would ever like. But, rather ...

    This is what I see as the true sequel to Out Run as Turbo Outrun and Outrun Europe are garbage. This let's you pick between different cars and characters, which results in cars with 2 to 5 gear transmission, if you choose manual, and you can even choose auto transmission if you just want to focus ...
