    I think so, you have to complete the story mode.

    Read a review on Gamespot before I ordered it - they gave it a great review, solid arcade style gameplay with great graphics... Sounds well worth a tenner. Mine was posted yesterday so hopefully will be able to take it for a test run tomorrow! :smashin:

    Thanks rOAdeh for the post btw.

    A lot better than they used to be. You should get your item within 3/4 days. Their packaging is not that great though, they only use padded envelopes rather than cardboard boxes. However I've only felt the need to return a few items, and I've ordered a lot from them!

    I ordered this on the wednesday, it was posted the same day and arrived yesterday :D .

    I've received a few items in 2 days from Play, though I think i'm just one of the lucky ones. A mate of mine has had a few delays in the past.

    As Tejstar says, usually 3 to 4 days. Packaging's ok I suppose. Had no probs with games or DVDs, but every now and then i'll get a slightly damaged CD, nothing major.



    As for the game, had a (very) quick blast yesterday and wasn't really blown away to be honest. I recently started playing Burnout 3 again and graphically Outrun 2 seamed a bit of a step down. Seamed pretty fun though (powerslides look as though they'll be a laugh).

    Like I said these were only my first impressions from a quick, 10min blast as I was leaving the house (only had 2 races!), i'll give it a thorough going over tomorrow.

    Recieved it this morning, haven't had a chance to put it on yet - will do so this evening.

    Are you sure you are thinking of Play? I usually get stuff from them within 48hrs and in cardboard box, not a padded envelope.
    I would definitely recommend them anyway :smashin:

    I haven't ordered anything from them in the last 3 months or so, but before that 3/4 days was the average and I never got anything in a cardboard box unless it was a boxset. Maybe they've changed things in the last few months? :confused:

    However, as you said, regardless of that, they've always offered top notch service! :thumbsup:

    Play are a great company, the waiting time on the phone is seconds rather than minutes. I have had one lost parcel and one dodgy dvd which were sorted out very quickly and professionally. Shame i just bought outrun 2 from game for £18.

    i actually cant wait to get this game and hopfully will recieve it through the post this week.

    i did a search on the net and it seems once u have completed one of the modes it unlocks the original outrun.

    for a tenner i think its a bargain.

    The first level of the arcade mode basically is the original Outrun, it has the same course, same music, same car, just better graphics! :clap:
    The gameplay is extremely simplistic, just forward, left, right & brakes which makes it very playable - a good antidote to GT4.

    Not sure I'd pay £40 for it, but am pretty pleased for a tenner! :thumbsup:
