Full Auto gameplay video

Full Auto gameplay video

I've visited Sega's office here in France last week to take a look at the latest Full Auto build (non final). I've been allowed to film but most of my footage is not usable directly for different reasons. Here is one that I could use, with no sound unfortunately, with more to come.

Hey Blim,

Thanks for the videos. Any of your personal comments on the game coming?

How come the release date on their official website is 10.02.06? Is it delayed again?

You can see the differences from the demo almost instantly, it certainly seems to move slightly slower which isn't a bad thing, the ragdoll drivers look pretty good and the lighting system is certainly a lot better looking. Still a pretty shallow arcade game underneath all that though.

@nossi: delayed? it's on the shelves in 10days! or 15 in the us...

i love this game... this is not even the final built and I loved the demo so I'm buying this anyway. This game has at least as much fun-potential than burnout for me... don't unterstand why so many ppl are so negative about this game.

Oh...yeah, I dunno, I swear I saw 10.02.06 last night. I might've looked at a different region website. LOL.

I'm right there with you McErono, I just plain love it. I've spent so much time with the demo, despite no restart and the fact that it kicks you out to the dashboard when done. I've kept booting it up over and over and it's just a blast with ONE track and TWO CARS. Full version has 21 cars!

Of course it could be like Kameo where I basically enjoyed the demo more than the full game (sometimes less is more since you make more of the less than of the more which is more anyway.. er yeah.) but I doubt that.

A well timed demo, too, which came out just in time to hype a game within a reasonable time frame until its release unlike some demos that come out nutty early and you basically lose interest before it's out. (Fight Night 3?)

this game is looking good, looks pretty much next gen. ill give it a early review 8.7 out of 10 which is pretty good. when finish it could get 9.0 out 10 are 8.9 out 10.

can,t wait to play the full version in two weeks time.

This game isn't going to win any "story awards" but in general it's fun to just plop down on the couch and play a game or two. Very disappointed that the demo on marketplace is so damn old, basically a build of the game since August.

Hopefully Blim isn't under NDA so that he can give his opinion of the game he saw vs. the marketplace demo. especially in regards to stability/crashes, slowdowns, gameplay and controls revisions and anything else that stuck out in his head.

Right, watched the vid now. Speed seems to make more sense now as one of my main complaints about the game was the inability to avoid grenades and mines dropped by opponents. This way you'll also be able to make more advanced decisions about where to go, what to shoot, etc, on the fly.

So I guess we can lay to rest all the "theres no ay they made that many improvements to the demo build" talk, cuz that looks improved in nearly every facet.
Commented on 2006-01-31 17:24:39
it looks great!

but there are still heavy slowdowns! watch the movie from 1.00 -1.20... looks sometimes like slomo. strange thing is that there is almost nothing going on and in other scenes the whole screen is exploding but the framrate stays smooth...

but lightening, textures, smoke, reflections... wow.

Exactly I mean the guy in the 1up video even said the demo was made back in october of last year. Some people even went as far as to say that the demo build WAS the final game except without the other cars and levels which alot of people including myself disagreed with I'm sure.

One thing I was wrong about it seems (I thought they completed all work on full auto for the 360) when he said non final is this to say they haven't finished working on the game or did they just not show the final build of the game?

Mc those didn't strike me as major slowdowns the car took a hit and started to drive a bit slower as a result and coming into that turn he was doing a powerslide which was also slowing down the car nothing major that jumped out at me. Also the smoke trail from the missiles that come from behind is really impressive.

how can it be the latest build, but not be final?

the game has gone gold like a week or 2 ago
Commented on 2006-01-31 17:39:55
the game is not made in france... so maybe the sega dudes in france just don't have the latest built.

but it's obvious that the final game still has slowdowns... mr. smith said the performance is improved over the demo but he didn't say that it is smooth all the time. and I have never seen any footage that was flawless in aspect of the framerate.
Commented on 2006-01-31 17:42:25
Latest version of full game, but not completely polished is what I'd make of it. I doubt any retailers actually have their hands on a full copy of the game as of yet, sure they made a certain number of ordes for the game in anticipation that they will get the games in, but again I doubt any retailer/online retailer actually has a copy in hand currently.

Or maybe they'll continue calling it the latest build until they feel its good enough to be called complete. Don't be surprised if the release date gets pushed back a couple of days. Fight night is now no longer releasing on the 14th of feb from what I hear. Its on the 23rd now I believe and full auto could get a similar push back as well if the devs dont' feel its completely ready.

You sure mcerono? I've seen quite my fair share of flawless running gameplay videos of full auto. Or maybe its just the fact that I don't see minor fps drops of anything worth mentioning since I usually hardly ever played consoles till the 360 (mostly pc) So a fps drop here or there is no big deal to me really. Nonetheless I've yet to see any serious slowdowns that would cause me to get pissed off with the game.

Mc there are tons of flawless running videos on ign.

fullauto is gold so the master is already finished - the game is finished.

retailers get their copies just 1-2 days before release but mags get review version much sooner. but it is impossible to make such changes to the code in a few days so I think there will be framerate issues.

GOOD NEWS FOLKS frame city killer has been fixed significant graphics update on the way!!

I finally finished grabbing the higher resolution movie and I don't see any slowdowns, certainly nothing at the time points you suggest. The only place where I see any slowdowns is entering and leaving the "replay" type view after an enemy is killed and the slowdown there is difficult to say if it's part of the replay or part of the game ramping in and ramping out of the replay.

The video quality is awesome, Blim has some pretty awesome gear. The game has changed quite a bit and the movie definately makes me want to play the final game.

look again and concentrate on the left and right side instead of the middle of the screen... the game goes slower it's not stuttering, if you don't see this you will be very happy with fullauto :-)

Nice video Blim.

This game definitely has a space reserved on my game shelf.
Good times :)

Ah! okay I see it but only if I look at the left and right side. I wonder how often when I'm playing the game will I notice these slowdowns though?
I'm not sure I would classify them as "serious" slowdowns, there are a few but I'm not sure it's something that would bother me.

I'm more worried about slowdowns on Live gameplay when everything is blowing up around the gamers AND network traffic is being transmitted.

afaik the physics are limited in the multiplayer...
Commented on 2006-01-31 23:13:51
Games fantastic cant wait to play it...

Looks much better in action than from pics.

I wish that hitting traffic caused more damage, would give you more of a reason to blow shit up ò_ó
