  • Summary: Full Auto 2: Battlelines puts high-speed vehicles outfitted with weapons and armor into fully realized and fully destructible urban street environments.

Fierce combat-racing will ensue as you strategically use destruction to win races as well as leave massive devastation in your wake. Players can destroy the environment to dynamically change track conditions to block competitors, open new paths, or crush opponents with falling debris caused by well-timed missiles. Full Auto 2: Battlelines also introduces a new Arena Mode featuring team play and six different levels, each specifically designed for a unique type of multiplayer car combat. In the new multi-path single player campaign, players battle to take control of Staunton City by conquering the six different districts and taking control of opponent cars and weapons. The game's six different carnage-filled multiplayer modes, which incorporate team play and objectives ranging from classic deathmatches to unique base assaults and gladiator-style gameplay, deliver a diverse range of competitive options. The sequel implements the fan-favorite Unwreck feature, which allows players to turn back time and take another shot at a treacherous turn, avoid a deadly obstacle, or simply avoid enemy fire.

  1. A commendable improvement to last year's release. The driving physics are still a little more awkward than one would hope for, but if you can see past this flaw, then there's plenty of adrenaline pumping, gut wrenching racing waiting for you.
  2. If you weren't a fan of the original on the Xbox 360, don't expect this sequel to set your world on fire. But there are enough tweaks and perks to keep car combat fans happy, and it's an overall improvement on the first game.

    With a solid online component, a vastly improved career mode, and plenty to unlock Full Auto 2 is a great addition to the PS3 library, let’s just hope the developers take their time and give us a true sequel next time around.

    Whilst it's not what we imagined for the console, it's enough fun to justify its existence. [Issue # 149, p.64]
  5. Full Auto 2: Battlelines might be battling for your gaming dollars, but it's in your best interest to draw a line in the sand. Say no to a wealth of issues with the presentation and controls, as well as a distinct lack of basic multiplayer features.
  6. It's a gas tank full of frustration that could leave you fuming, but Full Auto 2's explosive graphics help to keep it on track.
  7. It's a budget PlayStation 2 game wearing its big sister's high-definition make-up. It's abominable, and just thinking about it makes the veins in our forehead bulge. [Feb 2007, p.64]

The perks are great and blends in with the game well. This reminds me of a Twisted Metal Revival sort of, given the fact a Twisted Metal game hasn't come out in ages. Very well crafted game. The graphics are amazing for the year and is one of the better games in its genre. Expand

    This game is fun and the destruction is massive, but the single player is to easy even on hard.

    There's a reason why this game should have been delayed, and its the same reason why its predecessor should have been delayed. Like its There's a reason why this game should have been delayed, and its the same reason why its predecessor should have been delayed. Like its predecessor on the 360, this is an extremely buggy game. The driving physics are horrendous even for an arcade game that isn't meant to take them seriously. The weapons lack any sort of creativity and the courses are all pretty bland. Do yourself a favor and wait for the next Burnout game or get Motorstorm... or pick up a copy of Twisted Metal: Black for the PS2 (for under $10) and play that instead. It may not be as good looking, but it plays a heck of a lot better. Expand

The system is such a letdown. Its said the PS2 was actually good. Please people, dont waste the price of this game and $600 (Yes! The system really is that much, I know, I know...) and buy a 360 which is worth the price or even better a Wii. And if you own it, sell it on Ebay while you still can and people haven't realized how bad the system is. Expand
