Auto Assault looks like it's turning out pretty well. At least according to Gamespy, Gamespot and IGN.

Your character is driving the vehicle. You will see him/her when in towns and such where you interact with other characters and whatnot. Most of the "adventure" time will be spent in vehicle.

If only... Car Wars was the best thing to come out of Steve Jackson games... well, except for the Principia Dischordia.

WOOHOO!!! I got a beta invite! I'll let you guys know how it is. If anyone else got selected, just lemme know the name you'll use. I'll either use Vilentia (Novaflare) or Ruuhn (Novaflare). The Novaflare part is if they allow last names.

Without giving too many details about the game, both because the testing times are limited right now and because of the NDA still in effect, I will just verify one thing the game reviews have mentioned... pretty much everything is destructable. I say "pretty much" because with my wimpy machine guns I haven't been able to try destroying bigger rocks and such.

I don't like that I haven't found a manual on the game yet so trying figure it out sucks at times. The controls can be painful (trying to steer a car with the WASD config it tough). This game IS fast and fun. Though I think it would be more fun as an arcade game. It's pretty much a MMO version of Death Rally or Carmageddon.

Is it gamepad compatible? That may make it easier and therefore more enjoyable.

I'm not real sure on the ease of configuring the game pad in game, but since most games now use an external version I don't think it would be a problem.

I was considering picking up one of the car simulator controllers... at least I was until I saw how much they are. But if this game was cool enough to warrant it, I just may get one. I'll have to wait for the final product to make that decision.
