Overall, that’s the takeaway from the entire Auto Age: Standoff experience. It has to live on its gameplay alone, which is on par with what you’d expect from the genre, but nothing worth writing home about. Coming into this game solo will give players an initial burst of excitement as they finish the tutorial followed by the sad realization that the rest of the game doesn’t live up to its own hype.
Other than wishing for some more of that story, the only other drawback was that the default configuration for a controller didn’t have the brake mapped to it. You can change it of course, but should probably be there somewhere, to begin with. This game is worth your time, whether for nostalgia, the car combat or both.
The tutorial here had me extremely impressed and brought the entire package and themes of the game to the forefront. Now if the multiplayer continued that or there was a single player story to keep this momentum going, this would have been an overall good package that takes advantage of its best elements. The driving is solid, the combat is ok, but the theme is excellent and it’s all surrounded by a game that just feels lacking. I love what the developers are going for here, but it feels like a huge squandered opportunity.
