  • Summary: The cel-shading technique has been done to death. Sometimes the result is good ("Fur Fighters" for example), but more often than not it does the game no favours and just ends up making it look too childish. However, this is not the case with Auto Modellista. It's refreshing to see such a game. Arcade mode, circa every racing game on the PlayStation 2 ever, is your bog-standard racing. Pick a car, a race course and some background music and off you go.

Bad handling and physics drove me up the wall

  • Summary: With a look as revolutionary as a futuristic car design, Auto Modellista stretches the imagination to a whole new visual plane. If it weren't for the disappointing controls, Auto Modellista's road to glory would be carved into auto history. The radical look is the sole highlight of Auto Modellista. A cel-shaded world where even the raindrops fall in 2D makes up the game's eye-catching design.

A Great Racing game!

  • Summary: This is the best racing game I have played. It was way different from alot of racing games because it is Cel-Shaded. You can beat the game in 2-5 hours,But the Online play Lasts along time. You can get trophies for winning, and tons of upgradable parts. You get to choose your Turbine, Brakes, design and color of your car,and much more. When you win races you can uprade your Engine witch makes it faster, and just bedder.

The Spiritual Successor to Ridge Racer Type 4

  • Summary: Okay, I know that was really Ridge Racer V, but Auto Modellista makes a far better case. First off this is NOTHING like Gran Turismo, sure it has GT cars, but the Ridge Racer and Tokyo Xtreme Racer series are closer to what Auto Modellista is. Initally it doesn't seem like you're moving all that fast, but once you play the game for a bit you get filtered into the anime-ish world of AM.
