OutRun 3D (Sega Master System review)

Developer: Sega R&D 2
Publisher: Sega
Released: 1989

OutRun 3D is a driving game that uses the stereoscopic Sega 3-D Glasses.

+ The 3D is game-changing as it brings the stages to life and makes it feel like you can see for miles into the distance.

+ Some of the 3D effects are so stunning (particularly the rolling waves) that it's hard to concentrate on driving!

+ Camera is positioned higher than OutRun (1987, Master System) which makes it easier to see incoming cars on hills.

+ With 15 stages, it's a pure joy waiting to see what's ahead in each route and the difficulty options cater for everyone.

+ Includes a bonus 2D mode and while it isn't as smooth as the original there are some unique track layouts on offer.

- The halved frame-rate results in a lack of speed and there's no noticeable difference between the top speed of both gears.

- The three new music tracks aren't very memorable and it's curious why the original iconic songs were removed.
