  1. This game has great controls, but they’re touchy.
  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.
  3. After the unique visuals and fresh implementation of standard and advanced features, the most compelling reason to get your hands on Auto Modellista is for its online multiplayer racing capabilities.
  4. Has a fantastic look, but its gameplay unsuccessfully tries to straddle the line between simulation-style tuning options and arcade-style handling and collision physics.

    It's fast and easy to play, and it looks terrific. At least the cars do. Serious car culture enthusiasts and a very select group of auto-manga readers will dig it, but its dusting of drawbacks leave it just barely on the three-star side of the rating scale.
  6. The biggest problem I found was control. Nag all you want about the AI, its not that big a deal. But I hardly ever felt like I was in true control of the car that I was driving.

    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]

    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 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 turismo 3, id recommend it to any car lover. Expand

    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 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. Collapse

Les possibilités d'optimisation et deLes graphismes particuliers très enfantins sont déconcertants mais peuvent attirer un public très jeune. Les possibilités d'optimisation et de personnalisation sont aussi poussées que dans un Gran Turismo, voire plus complètes encore ; malheureusement l'approche abominablement arcade rend tout cela caduc, il ne reste alors que l'esthétique : toutes les voitures ont en effet le même comportement simpliste et simplet. Reconnaissons tout de même une partie sonore correcte et un début de vague amusement le temps de la découverte. Hélas, vient assez vite la soupe à la grimace. Expand
