Well I just picked up Auto Modellista this week at the local gameshop, and for the most part the game is pretty impressive. The Graphics are pretty impressive with a solid framerate at 60fps and good sense of speed. Other than that, it looks like a manga comic, with speed streaks etc, a racing game never looked like this before.. The gameplay is basically identical to Ridge Racer but the controls lean towards an arcadey GT3. The way the powersliding seems more like powerslides in Gran Turismo than Ridge Racer. But its still very arcadey because you take powerslides at very high speeds like RR, they just powerslide more like GT's than RR's. In other words, it's a GT3 mmet Ridge racer style and works rather nicely actually.
The game also supports online play whch is a blast. You can race up to 8 different people at a time and the game also has chat, and USB keyboard support. The game is also free to play online, no fees at all.
There is a great selection of cars and tracks to choose from, and your car is fully customizable, even more so than GT3 cars are. It's pretty cool to see what kind of rides you can create from scratch. The A.I isnt the best, but it does a pretty decent job of giving some competetive races, especially in later modes. So far, the game is a blast and online play is the cherry on top. Anyone who likes arcadey racers should definitely check it out.

I had looked forward to Auto Modelista. Firstly, (as a gearhead) as a second game to play on-line (after SOCOM Navy Seals). Secondly, the cel-shading style of graphics looked apealing.
The single coolest thing about this racer is the graphics. It looks great. Really great. Checkout for screenshots to see what it offers.
There is a pretty good selection of cars, and the customization capabilities are very deep. Perhaps too deep. It allows you to customize your cars styling through body kits, and any combination of colors, plus various stripe styles, wheels, and decals.
Arguably, more focus has been put on customizing your car, and even the garage that it's displayed in, than on the driving experience. And unfortunately, I have yet to discover how to race your customized cars on-line. I mean, isn't that the greater point of such an exercise... to share your creation.
The racing experience is... well... Gran Turismo it ain't.
It's pretty fun, but don't expect great realism. I guess it kind of goes along with the semi-cartoon-like graphics. More abstract than life-like.
Oh yeah, and the biggest annoyance for me, the goofy voice remarks that the annoucer makes, that you apparently can't turn off. Hearing him go "you're amazing!" after a descent turn gets old really quickly.
All in all, it's kind of fun, but for a serious racer, I think it's lees likely to keep your attention

Okay, I know that was really Ridge Racer V, but Auto Modellista makes a far better case.
First off this is NOTHING like Gran Turismo, sure it has GT cars, but the Ridge Racer and Tokyo Xtreme Racer series are closer to what Auto Modellista is. Initally it doesn't seem like you're moving all that fast, but once you play the game for a bit you get filtered into the anime-ish world of AM. You'll unlock both performance and body style upgrades as well as fully tweak out the graphics on your car as well as it's colors and plates.
Hands down the highlight of the game is the uphill and downhill point to point races. These type of events are extremely exciting and the perfect environment for an anime sport racer.
Ultimately the game does have some shortcomings, namely there really aren't that many tracks, and the menu system is quite clunky. Also it seems that moving from ANY mode to another requires the game to load. It's not for everyone, but is an outstanding game and proves that cel shading can work in a sport racing game. If you're uncertian about it, I really suggest you rent it before purchasing. Be warned however, after playing a little of it you might really want to pick it up. Hopefully things will be expanded if a sequel is ever released.

Ok, now I know that I will probably get blasted by this but, this game was really not that great. I was SO looking forward to this game for the past few months. My main complaints are as follows: GRAPHICS: now don't get me wrong the cars look great, it's just everything else. Scenery, or lack thereof, lacks detail and there really is nothing else to look at but the cars. PHYSICS: these cars are WAY to sensitive. Just about any amount of pressure is enough to make you spin out if your not careful. CHALLENGE: ok something is wrong if you can finish all the races and only lose one of them (late spinout - see physics statement). Lastly, the CUSTOMIZE section: this was the one part of the game that was hyped the most and I'm sure most people were looking forward too, but let's face it, there really isn't that much to it. Except for rims, you basically have just a few parts for each section of your car (all cars use the same parts). The one thing I did like was the two player and online modes. They are about the only thing that I can recommend this game for. As long as people online use broadband like it says to. Nothing more irritating than trying to play against a dial-up competitor. If your looking for a driving game stick to Gran Turismo or Midnight Club.
