    As you have heard time and time again, don't look for GT3... but this game is a whole lotta fun. Play it with friends and you have a party right there. I cannot wait to try it online.

    This game isnt grand turismo 3, and it wasnt meant to be. For what capcom has done with cell shading in this title is amazing. The visuals are great and definitely make the game attractive. As for gameplay, its touchy at first, but once you get used to the controls and features, the game is surely a car lovers friend next to grand turismo 3. This is my favorite racing game besides grand This game isnt grand turismo 3, and it wasnt meant to be. For what capcom has done with cell shading in this title is amazing.

    It's definitely not GT3 A-Spec... but it is a good game none the less. I would recomend it for those gamers that love racing games, but don't have the skill or time to learn the skill required for the in-depth simulation games. The handling is a little awkward at first, but you get used to it.

    The original "Ridge Racer" on PSOne had better control than Auto Modellista. The biggest problem with the game is the utter lack of traction that these cars have. [June 2003, p.28]
  2. Sure, it's got the gorgeous looks of a supermodel, and enough cool effects to keep your eyes entertained for hours. But underneath all that makeup is a deep, less-realistic simulation racer that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat.

    AM could've been the next great PS2 racer, if only Capcom had hired a mechanic who specialized in handling. [June 2003, p.131]
