    I still wonder exactly who did the Genesis version of "Outrunners". Perhaps by knowing one could figure out why this was such a bowdlerized port that even as a stand-alone Genesis racer was mediocre at best. Tiertex (GASP!!!)? Probe? CRI?

    I have not played Turbo Outrun, but if the Strider Returns guys were involved...ugh. Those guys are like a bad habit. They just won't go away.

    The constant split screen which means your only looking at a thin letterbox view totally spoils this game for me. A port of Outrun Europa would have been nice for Megadrive, the Master System version is excellent.

    Here's the aforementioned clip of MD Turbo Outrun.........yeah, the frame-rate and animation are almost as bad as on this clip:

    And here's Tiertex's third-party catalog from their own site:

    http://www.tiertex.com/aboutus2.htm (Page 2, Handheld/Master System/Mega Drive/Game Gear/Super NES titles)

    Ah, so they were the ones behind the horrid Master System ports of Capcom's "Strider" and "MERCS"! No wonder SMS "Strider" SUCKED so much.

    They did quite a few SMS titles it appears.

    But seriously, the graphics... pitiful. A world away from the beauty of Street Racer.
    But unfortunately the gameplay in SR isn't so hot.

    Does anyone have a really high res scan (seriously high quality) of the cover for Outrunners? The game never came out in PAL land and I'd like to do a mash-up and put a euro-boarder/spine on it... come to think of it... should it be the blue boarder, or the earlier black with grey squares.. (when exactly was it released?

    But yeah, let me know if you can do the scan and I'll PM you an email address, THANKS!

    Why'd you have to go and dig this thread up again? lol.

    I am going to reiterate that I don't care at all that "the frame rate was awful" or this or that. I have and had a immense amount of fun playing this game. The review put it how I thought it should be.

    Remember that this review is my opinion of course, and I would hope that attacks on it aren't directed to me, rather than the game. That's not saying that anyone did, I'm just sayin.

    I wasn't aware it was an old thread and I didn't know it was taboo to dig old ones I've never posted on. Besides I didn't dig it up first, it was a SPAMMER. Oh and I was actually commenting on Turbo Outrun shown on You Tube, not Outrunners.
