Auto Assault First Glimpse

TenTonHammer's "First Glimpse" at Auto Assault

Vehicular destruction MMO Auto Assault hit retailers last week, and countless gamers running and gunning their way through a post-apocalyptic earth as you read this. But can "the fastest, most destructive MMORPG ever" live up to the hype?

At least in the low level areas I've been motoring though, Auto Assault has the absolute, dyed-in-the-wool look and feel of a post-apocalyptic game world. Disconnected overpasses, half-collapsed highrises, mutated wildlife and malfunctioning robots run amok, even the rain seems laced with fallout, and if it looks remotely destructible, it is. Sure there's things that don't quite make sense, the brake lights o­n my lieutenant's Artemis M for o­ne- but if civilization collapsed, I wouldn't draw a bead pulling those fuses (unless it was a matter of survival). But in the Thunderdome-ish attitude of the day, life is cheap and showmanship is at least as important as survival. I could get into this.

Our first impression? 4.8 out of 5 hammers! Why did we give Auto Assault such a high horsepower rating?
