Mark Plays... Auto Modellista (J/PS2)

Mark Vergeer's picture


Auto Modellista - 'collecting cars' was released on the Xbox, GameCube and PS2, and it had a very distinct cell-shaded art style. It was produced by Capcom in 2002. It was positioned as the ultimate car tuning/tweaking game but wasn't the success Capcom hoped it would be. Still it is quite a nice arcade style racer and I opt not to dabble too much in the various configuration options of the various cars. It's a bit reminiscent of Daytona USA in the way the cars handle actually.

The US release was enhanced and had more US cars and the drive mechanics were altered a bit. You can find it as Auto Modellista: US Tuned. Now that would be worth checking out and comparing with the Japanese and the PAL releases.

In this video I show you what the game looks like. It is not a full review nor is it a playthrough.

In this video I hooked up my PS2 Slim up to the AVerMedia Live Gamer Portable through component cables and setting the video out settings to component. This results in quite a nice SD grab.

Check out the video and find out how I fare.
