depressingly lackluster!

  • Summary: Auto modelista is a huge let down as far as racing sims go with only one saving grace. The thing that matters the most in a videogame is the core gameplay, length, and replay value, and auto modelista falls flat on its face in all three categories. First of all the core gameplay. The game has very short, unmemorable tracks, which is really a shame because the graphics are excellent. The cars drive terribly, powerslide around every turn.

  • Summary: Its so hard to handle your car that you lose every race. The graphics may be great, but the way they made this game is poor. I would maybe rent it but dont buy it because I took it to a used game shop to sell after I played it once. Dont get this.

NOT a cartoon gran turismo 3.

  • Summary: -Auto Modellista is not what I thought it would be. Whenever I asked anyone about it they said "oh! yea that, its like a cartoon gran turismo 3". it's not. -It's a very short game with awful physics and the most number of laps in a race is like 4 around a short track. I beat this game in 3 days. only playing for 45-75 minutes a day. -Most of your time though is spent customising your cars which is awsome because of the good variety of cars and the variety of parts.

Are the other reviewers here insane?

  • Summary: I love racing games. My first experience with a killer racing game was Rage Racer on PS1. I loved R4, Gran Turismo, and Gran Turismo 2, and Wipout 3 on the PS1. The PS2's pure racers have been more sparse for me. I loved GT3, but short of that, I consider the best car game on the system to be GTA3 and GTAVC. Now, to the subject at hand: Automodellista breaks the one big rule of racing games. It has horrible physics. Rent it first, please. Watch one of your replays.

Good Hype...Poor Racing...

Poopy Pooper, Amazon

  • Summary: This game is mostly hype. I was hoping for GT3 with cell shading but that's not what this game is. The graphics are different but there are a lot of jaggies and pixelization. Most of the cars upgrades are avaliable for free so why work hard to get your car in shape? The controls are too sensative. Turn alittle to much and the car spins out coming to a complete stop. I can't count the number of races I was leading but spun out and ended up 6th.

Not The Greatest Racing Game :(

"deaglepractice", Amazon
3 April 2003
  • Summary: Ya, this game is not the greatest racing game I've played...I mean, even Tokyo Extreme Racer Zero is better than this. The only thing I like about this game is there is a lot of cars to choose from, it doesn't cost to get parts, and you can decorate your garage. Decorating your garage is the coolest thing. You can put any kind of posters you win up, and you can put all the other things you win. To me, thats probably the best part of the game.

  • Excerpt: "It could have been far better than it was, the graphics were good and original and the racing was sound, but it was let down for me by the fact that you could change everything about it, sometimes its just ruined it, there was also far too much to unlock and was very had to get into. I found it was too long for this type of genre and the game gave me no incentive to continue to play it after i got over the initial novalty of the graphics. Multiplayer ...
  • Pros: Good use of Cel - Shading graphics
  • Cons: too complex and boring

Have the mighty Capcom gone mad?!

  • Excerpt: "I knew I had to have it. Simply because I had waited so long.. I had built up this picture in my mind of flawless cel shaded racing. Arcade style graphics with simulation handling.. I was to be ultimately disappointed. Ok I'm going to keep this brief.. I dont want your comments, or money for this review.. all I want is for racing fans and Capcom fans alike to steer clear of this steaming pile of automotive dung. 1. The handling is unresponsive 2. ...
  • Pros: Nice effects, Cars are licenced and customisable, Cel Shading is nicely unique
  • Cons: The cars handle badly, Collision detection is terrible
