Full Auto is a combat style racing game which was released on the xbox 360 as a launch title and published by Sega.
Full Auto is different to almost every other racing game on the market due to it's unique combat system. Before you start a race, you can choose a primary and secondary weapon. Some weapons include: Machine Gun, Missiles, Grenades, Mines, Cannon, Rockets. All of these are mounted onto your gun and the general aim is to get to the finsih line n 1st place whilst causing as much damage and carnage as possible along the way.
Full Auto's single player is very linear and quite dull, with slight variations of the same theme as you go through. Eg, reverse tracks, one life races, sprints. All of this leads to an exceptionally mediocre experience. However, jump online and the fun really starts, hearing the cries of anguish as you obliterate they racer in 1st place with a well placed rocket. This game is so much fun once you get to the Multiplayer.
There are no real cars in Full Auto, only sega made cars appear, this is a slight disappointment and there is only a small handful of cars to choose from.
Graphics are very nice in this game, explosions look convincing yet beautiful and sparks fly when you rub up agaiast another racer, destructible environments also add to the experience.
If you are a fan of arcade style racers, then this is for you, especially if you like to blow stuff up aswell!
Full Auto is a combat/racing game, developed by Pseudo Interactive and Published by Sega. It was released in Europe on February 10 2006 and on Feb 15th in North America.
The idea of mixing guns and cars is nothing new to anybody in the gaming industry but with the intense action you will experience during gameplay you will be more than entertained. I was very surprised with Sega to find out that this game is actualy pretty damn good, it's provided me with hours of entertainment and i always enjoy it when i play.
The weapons in this game range from a front mounted machine gun and rear mounted mines, to a front mounted homing missile launcher and rear mounted grenades, which drop 4 at a time, and, every gun/explosive you can think of, in between. Players have the ability to adjust the levels of each weapon from 1-3 (1 being lowest and 3 being highest) but changing the level of say, your frontal machine gun, to a level 3, will bring your rear mounted weapon down to a level 1 and vice versa.
Cars come in three classes from A-C and then one S Class car. Class A cars are slow but very durable. In Class B cars, speed and durability are about even and Class C cars are fast and less durable. The car in Class S is called the 'Warlord' and all of its stats are pretty much maxed out, making it an ultimately stroner, faster machine. This tends to be rather annoying in online play as a lot of inexperienced players tend to choose this when they are host and just beat everybody hands down.
Speaking of online, the online experience for Full Auto is SENSATIONAL! I dont think i have spent as much time on a game online than i have with this one, there's just something that feels fantastic about following a guy in a monster of a car and blowing him up, leaving car and body parts flying everywhere. (You dont see body parts, that was for effect, but you do see the driver fly out)
There is a feature that is usable in certain races in career mode called 'Unwreck' which gives drivers the opportunity to rewind the action and have a second chance at anything they make a mistake on, this feature can either save you or screw you and a lot of times has gotten me to the point of wanting to sell my console, but im one of those kinds of people.
All in all i think i have to say that this is by far one of the best racing combat games ive ever played, the intense action is second to none and the challenge seems to get harder and harder, keeping you gripped from the second you get in gear and peel rubber...
Full Auto is a combat racing game for the Microsoft Xbox 360 games console.
This game has very enjoyable races for one reason, they are explosive. Everything in this game explodes!
The combination of cars and guns is not very original but it works very well, each vehicle has different guns/mines on it which allow for fun gameplay a new experiences with every car you pick.
The driving is not actually that great, but as there are so many explosions you are always kept entertained and busy.
The graphics in this game are probably the highlight, even though it is an early Xbox 360 title the car models are very detailed, the environment's a nice and as I have said the explosions are second to none.
If you like cars, guns, and explosions look no further than Full Auto, you should be able to find it for 10 to £20.00 which is a good price for this explosive game.
This is a combination racing and combat game which is a pretty fun game to play but with a couple of improvements could be a lot better.
There is little in the way of a storyline you are merely tasked with winning as many races as possible to progress through the career mode. The car that you drive will have two weapons, one front mounted and to start off this will be a machine gun and mines to the rear however as you progress the weapons get bigger and better although your choices are always limited to picking weapons systems in a pair rather than a pure mix and match.
There are a couple of neat features at your disposal while racing, sliding around corners powers up a boost facility for extra speed while you also have the ability to reset time back a few seconds allowing you to avoid any spectacular crashes, this is by way of a meter and is not available all of the time. There is a decent variety in the types of races from single lap, timed, multi lap events and an enjoyable knock out race where the objective is to be the last car on the track.
The tracks are very varied however they are quite forgiving and after a few laps they are quite easy to master, visually the game is good with the only real downside being that the frame rate is not consistent at times which is on of the areas that could have been improved upon.
There is plenty of racing to be had with this game however it lacks enough variety to make it a really great game and as such it is worth checking out but I would suggest renting rather than buying.
