Auto know better

Thursday 4 May 2006
Sega has released the first three shots of Full Auto 2: Battlelines, the second in its car combat series, which has switched allegiances from Xbox 360 and will now be exclusively for PlayStation 3.

The sequel will allow gamers the chance to get behind the wheel of 25 different vehicles ranging from SUV's to muscle cars, which can be customised with 20 different weapon types. From then on it's all-out carnage as each race can be won by strategically destroying the other competitors and parts of the track.

Even though the original Full Auto wasn't a huge hit on Xbox 360, it's still a significant coup for PS3 to get Full Auto 2 exclusively. Being a sequel the graphics are bound to be improved, so the PS3 version will immediately compare favourably with the 360 version.

Also, having a game that focuses on spectacular crashes that utilise damage effects and cutting edge physics will always be useful for showing off PS3's ability to produce eye-catching visuals, especially at launch. Get the fill complement of stunning shots on the images tab above.
