When you arrive at a checkpoint, you gain more time until the timer runs out or you reach the finish line. OutRun (1986) SEGA also features five stages giving you choices of which way to go and finally ending with five final destinations and scenarios. This gives more depth to the game and allows you to explore and still have fun even if you already finished it a couple of times.
Controlling your sportscar in the game as immersive as can be as there were four kinds of arcade cabinets that launched for OutRun (1986) SEGA. Although they all had a steering wheel, brake and acceleration pedals, and a stick shift they did differ in some parts like upright designs and sitting down configurations that give full immersion as if you are inside of a car.
Summing it all up, OutRun (1986) SEGA is a great game for those who love racing simulation games. The cool 3D-like graphics via sprite-scaling combined with its lively and upbeat soundtracks shows us why it's still revered as one of the most influential of its time.
