Just wanted to let you guys know that Gamerankings.com has posted OXM's rating for Full Auto.
I suppose the latest issue of OXM has already found it's way to the early birds.

In short, Full Auto gets a 5.5 out of 10 sleeping.gif

yeah I saw that in the OXM I got in Saturday's mail sad.gif

I can see where they're coming from because I saw a lot of their negative comments right in the demo.

I don't have the mag with me but from what I remember their reasons were:

-not even an attempt at a background story, no time or location setting, at least they could have gone with the typical "post apocalyptic" thing.

-very dull and repetitive, no configurations of the cars what so ever, most of the cars drive the same and most of the guns shoot the same

-no points for anything like causing damage, the only motivation to cause damage is... there isn't any.

-no interesting game modes, the winner is he who comes in first place be it by driving or shooting, that's it, that's the whole game.

They did say that the graphics were good and that the reverse time feature was interesting but useless once you were halfway good at the game.

Its a pity they put all that work into the game, and then release it, and it sucks. They should have made it more like Carmageddon

yea that is pretty harsh but those points made sure make it sound like a failure. I loved the demo but it only lasts for so long. This one is going to be a rental for me.

Now there's an idea. A remake of Carmageddon 2 for the 360!

Oh and the demo sucked, so why wouldn't the final game?

I thought the demo was fun, but from what Twisted posted you can see that there wasn't much difference between the demo and the finished product.

In short, the game might be fun (depends on who you ask to begin with) for the first few minutes,
but that's about it....


Too bad if you ask me, this is one of those games that a lot of people were looking forward to pop.gif


Hey Twisted, any playable X360 demos in the latest disk?

well thats a damn shame. i was really impressed by the demo and saw a lot of potential. i dont know why they would knock it for not having a backstory, what racing game does? also i thought the point to the destruction was to refill your boost and rewind time functions. ill probably still rent it just to get a feel for it.

yeah Quake 4 and Condemned

So far it's been
Jan - Kameo & Full Auto
Feb - COD2 & FFXI
Mar - Quake 4 & Condemned

here's hoping next month's is something new and not yet available.

Tonight I'll grab the mag and get some more accurate info on what they said if you people are interested. pop.gif

As for Full Auto being like Carmageddon... I'd much rather have a modern version of Interstate '76 That was one of the coolest car combat games, totally customizable too, like an automotive FPS biggrin.gif

That blows.... Oh well you can't blame OXM if they're running out of playable X360 demos.
More publishers need to take the EA approach and put these games in the hands of eager gamers for a test drive. Playable game demos beats the crap out of advertising and even game reviews....

I agree, Interstate 76 is a classic!
I'd love to see a remake!

Full Auto looked like it had huge potential. It is a pity that it did badly. Also lostboyz has a signature that is too large. I am warning him before any moderator sees it.
