I was really really hyped for this and managed to jump in the beta.
It was the worst thing I had ever played, the whole endeavour was dull as hell. I was expecting MMO Interstate '76. You sholud be bloody lucky. The combat consists of pointing in the general direction of something and holding left mouse, then let the algorithms do thier work.
It plays more like a fantasy RPG in cars, the quests are totally un-fun. Even the settings are dull. There's only one, sparse and slightly apocalyptic.
Let's not mention the down right ridiculousless of the slowdown, not latency, like the hugest performance problems I have ever witnessed in a game.
I hated it, played it for hours and hours trying to get to something good throughout the whole weekend. It was awful.
Avoid Auto Assaut like the ****ing plague.
