Is Full Auto worth buying? That depends on how much you like racing games. Oh, and guns, too.
If you don't like it, rent it anyway, because the Achievement Points are very easy to get (Most of them, anyway). All the environments are completely destructible, and blowing up trains overhead it always good fun, especially when it falls on the track. Blowing opponents up on Xbox Live right before they cross the finish line? Hilarious. As fun as Full Auto is, however, it has some flaws. The single player seems to lack variety, and it seems to be the same racing event over and over. The lack of cars and weapons isn't good, either.
In the end, as fun as Full Auto is, it's no world-breaker. In the long run, chances are the thrills won't last forever. Oh well, there's always Full Auto 2 coming out in 2007 to look forward to...
Really enjoyed the game and will most likely buy it. Lots of cars, each with their own attributes. Cool weapons, but would like to mix and match. Challenging courses. Good ol' fashioned violence always makes for a good game.

Full Auto is, at its core, a game where you shoot stuff. That's pretty much all that they focused on. This game does a good job in its destructibility and its effects on the car models, but after they made some okay Xbox 360 graphics, and a ton of destruction and weapons to put in your arsenal, they walked away from the game. This game could easily have been perfect if they spent a few more months on the one thing that all racing games focus on... the racing. If they would've made the cars in this game maneuverable, and created semi-realistic physics, they could've had a great game on their hands, but they just slapped the most basic driving program on and thought, "They have unwreck, no big deal" which is somewhat true, until the later missions, where finishing first with one life and no unwreck can give you a bad opinion of yourself. This is also an abundant problem in multiplayer, and extremely annoying on courses with narrow roads. This game is average at what it does, and doesn't come close to Burnout, but if they took this game and looked it over, they could have the potential of a game that's just as good. (.) (.) l (~)
