  • 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.
  7. 40
    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.

    At this time (2010) you can probably get this game really cheap and it's worth it for a laugh. The off-line single player is pretty decent. You won't want to play it straight through or anything. But, it is pretty fun and something you'll probably come back to from time-to-time.

    I think the online would be really fun, but alas no one has been in the game lobby when I've tried to test that out. Anyone who has or gets the game that wants to play on XBL send me a message at gamertag=ItsHimAgain
