  • Summary: Full Auto combines fully-automatic, weapon-equipped vehicles with highly detailed urban landscapes, offering the most destructive environments ever featured in the racing genre. In Full Auto, the city of Staunton is held hostage by a mysterious group known only as The Shepherds. As a retired driver, you are coerced by the Shepherds into a series of lethal street races, where the cost of competing is far greater than anyone ever expected. 'Unwreck', a new feature that makes mid-race "restarts" a thing of the past, allows players to rewind short periods of time. Botch a turn? Correct it. Miss a shortcut? Go back and take it. Under heavy fire? Use a second chance to evade the competition. And Xbox Live support ensures significant replay value for gamers itching to take on human opponents in both grand-scale arena modes and full-throttle races. Full Auto allows players to choose from a wide selection of unique vehicle designs and arm them with any combination of machine guns, cannons, and other deadly weapons before taking to the streets. The rules of the road don't apply in this high-octane, no-holds-barred competition. [Sega] Expand

  1. High speed, intense firepower, rewind ability, online racing. Put all these together and you have yourself one top notch title, or as we like to say, a must have game.
  2. Full Auto may not push the boundaries of in-depth, innovative gameplay, but for all intents and purposes it is a blast of a game to play nonetheless and delivers non-stop explosive thrills from start to finish.
  3. A variety of wheels and weaponry ensures there'll be loads of destruction, while the online option gives this gas-guzzler some extra mileage.
  4. There’s a slight lack of presentation, continuity, and flow to the entire title, which unfortunately breaks Full Auto down to its core elements- combat and racing. While combat and racing are great together, most of us will be yearning for more from next-gen software.
  5. A deliciously shallow, easy-to-pick up marriage of arcade racing and wanton destruction. Hampered by occasional confusion, slowdown and questions over its long term appeal, it’s nonetheless – while it lasts – one of the 360’s most enjoyable games.
  6. This game won't change your life or the way you think about gaming, but for those nights when you just wanna turn off your brain and shoot things, you could do far worse.

    There are around ten hours in the single player mode, but it begins to grate after the first. Chances are the remaining time will be spent purely to earn some 360 Achievement Points. Entertainment? Tedium.

    I love this game, it is a very nice way for a stress relief. Just blowing things up not giving a **** what you blew up. One word to describe it Awesome Expand

    A breath of fresh air in racing. Its not the same racing genre you've been playing for 10 years. Puts the 360 through a workout. Shows a degree of destruction you havent seen before. Expand

    Does it strech the bounds of gaming ? NO ! Does it have the best grapihics on the 360? No ! Is it one of the most enjoyable driving games I've played on the 360? YES. If you have reservations, try renting it first. This game reminds me of the simple yet enjoyable arcade games of the past. I think the review (critics) are looking for the next driving game revolution. This isnt it. It simply is what it is, FUN! Expand

    I was originally excited about this game. I really liked the early videos, and the demo was a blast. However, when are we going to get a racing game that you can play 4 player split-screen (or at least an online setup like Halo2 where you can play against only your friends online)? And only 5 courses? It does not matter how many modes you have, if you only have 5 courses, the game will get old very quickly. Come on! This is next generation! My excitement about this game has diminished greatly, but I will still probably give it a chance. Expand

    The only thanks to this title is that it DID come out, that's basically it. I can't just figure out why every xbox360 racing game is having dumb old-gen trees on the sidewalks, they don't look impressive or even slightly detailed and just don't blent into the surroundings. The environments lack lighting complexion and the only thing you can enjoy, but only for a few hours, is how they are totally destroyed. Seeing this game in action won't get you to say that you're looking at a next-gen title. Burnout Revenge on the current gen is way beeter looking and playable than this one. Bottom Line : Bore and Lacklustre! Expand

    Something about going in circles and shotting people that have no where to go because they are going in circles with you doesnt strike my fancy. Imagine mario cart with infinite green shells and you get an idea of this boring, repetative, and stupid game. Expand
