Granted, I am not a racing fan. However, I was and still am a Twisted Metal Fan, and when I heard about Full Auto, my expectations was for a Twisted Metal for the Xbox. I was expectations, it seems, were not founded. The game is a racing game where you can blow things up, pure and simple. The game doesn't stray from that format at all, and doesn't have a story per say. The controls are simplistic and are easy to get adjusted too. I also found that just playing through the tutorial gave me several achievements. The graphics are technically Next-Gen, if you consider next gen to be games doing something that previous generation cannot do. Everything is destructible, however I found myself wondering in the midst of the destruction, why am I destroying all these things, this is where a plot would have helped quite a bit. Other than that the graphics are less than awe inspiring. Overall, if you like racing games where you have the ability to blow up building along the race route, then this game might be worth a rental. Otherwise it is a average game that doesn't even come close to the hype that it generated.

For what is advertised, it's exactly what it is. A Racing Combat Game. Graphics are very nice, and game play is easy to pick up on.
I found myself getting a little bored, a little too fast, but I may have a reason for that. And that leads me to my one warning to all of you. DON'T get this game, if you are still one of many of us who want another great "Twisted Metal" type game. This has way too much racing in it to be in that category.
Overall, I give it a 5, game play is fun, but I want more destruction and less racing!

I was waiting for this game since the 360 launch, and after finally playing it, I am a little dissapointed. The game is fun, don't get me wrong. It just doesn't do enough for me. However, this game is a great rental. Definately play it!
