Full Auto 2: Battlelines, in many ways, is superior to the original, especially with that 1080p option, better detailing, smoother frame rate, and a more fully realized Career Mode. But in many other ways, it fails to advance the new series to new heights and in the end, it's very much the same game with a slightly flashier wrapping. That's not what we wanted or expected from this game, but even so, Battlelines does have plenty of appeal. The multiplayer can be crazy entertaining, for example, and even though it's not a great addition to the PS3 lineup and certainly not worth the price of admission, this title isn't too bad. It's probably worth a rent on a rainy day, especially if you have a friend to play with, but beyond that, we can't recommend it for a $60 purchase.
