Summary

A great combination of role-playing and arcade action

The Good

Building your own vehicles was by far the best part of the game. Almost every weapon was useful, and you had to make a lot of tough decisions to balance the offensive, defensive, and cargo capacity of your vehicle.

The Bad

The plot of the game was silly and cliched.

The Bottom Line

Autoduel was one of the first games of its time to combine arcade action with role-playing, and it worked very well. You not only got to build up your cars, but you got to build up your driver as well and there were a lot of ways to win the prestige you needed to ultimately win the game. Whether you chose to be a delivery boy or master of the arena or both, the game was chock full of action and fun.
