A hit, and a miss.

  • Summary: I had looked forward to Auto Modelista. Firstly, (as a gearhead) as a second game to play on-line (after SOCOM Navy Seals). Secondly, the cel-shading style of graphics looked apealing. The single coolest thing about this racer is the graphics. It looks great. Really great. Checkout gamespot.com for screenshots to see what it offers. There is a pretty good selection of cars, and the customization capabilities are very deep. Perhaps too deep.

Not Worth The Hype

  • Summary: Ok, now I know that I will probably get blasted by this but, this game was really not that great. I was SO looking forward to this game for the past few months. My main complaints are as follows: GRAPHICS: now don't get me wrong the cars look great, it's just everything else. Scenery, or lack thereof, lacks detail and there really is nothing else to look at but the cars. PHYSICS: these cars are WAY to sensitive.

gorgeous!, stylish!, fast!, exciting!...yet flawed

  • Summary: This game is one of the most beautiful games I've ever played, and although all serious gamers know graphics do not make a game, they sure do help in auto modellista. The graphics are what drew me in from the beginning. The anime-cel-shaded style of the game is drop dead gorgeous. Both the cars and the tracks (especially the highways set in japan) are breath taking. Auto Modellista is extremely exciting.

  • Excerpt: "When it's not being super-easy, this arcade-style racer offers eye-catching graphics, skilful presentation, extensive and gratifying customization. Though the racing is quite thrilling due to the smooth speed of the game, this is also the area it falls down in. The AI is simplistic and the handling characteristics uninvolving. Best thing about the game is being able to put trophies you win exactly where you like in your garage. >>> Positive points + ...
  • Pros: Stylish graphics
  • Cons: Uninvolving racing

An Amazing Game

  • Summary: By now i am sure you have read multitudes of mediocre reviews about this game. I followed this gorgeous game from the day i saw it previewed in a magazine. i was all hyped up for it until i went out and bought it, and was disappointed. the level of customization in this game is fantastic, and the graphics are cel-shaded bliss. but the gameplay itself is the gripe here. ever drive on ice? this is a bit like that. the car physics in the game arent exactly realistic.
