Downloadable port of OutRun2 SP (see entry 1052); does not include the original OutRun2 (see entry 858) tracks or remix music tracks like OutRun 2006 Coast 2 Coast (see entry 1070) did. It also doesn't have the sort of annoying unlockable store concept like C2C did; all the cars are available from the beginning and perform the same, as far as I know.
 
The game controls and runs like a dream, just as it should. The HUD elements (map, speedometer, etc) look low-resolution, and clumsily rescaled to boot; there are some sort of compression or other artifacts in the digits that make up the timer, for instance, and the speedometer in the PSP version actually looks better than the one here. That stuff doesn't actually matter while you're playing, of course.
