E3 2002: Auto Modellista impressions
Approaching Capcom's booth, I saw a nice row of 4 cabinets, complete with the GT Force and contoured racing chairs, showing off Auto Modellista -- a game I've been looking forward to playing ever since it was announced. The cel-shading looks really nice, and somehow really works with the game. I picked many of the cars, including a Mitsubishi 3000GT, Subaru Impreza, Honda S2000 and Honda/Acura NSX. The game controlled really well, and smoothly. Initially, some may find the steering to be a bit over sensitive, but a little precision is all it takes. The game played well, and the network mode is a blast. Racing fans should really look forward to Auto Modellista, it's a really fun racing game, with great attention paid to physics. Look for it, sometime after the Summer.
