Because Auto Assault is targeted towards the
mainstreamgamer, NCsoft has made a number of design decisions that
simplify gameplay to focus on ease of play and a low learning curve.
Movement is a basic keyboard setup and the weapons are aimed with the
mouse. Guns will auto-track once a target is selected and if you can
align the two targeting cones on one victim, your chance to hit will go
up. The basic weapons will also never run out of ammo.
"You're free to shoot all you want," said Brown. "We wanted to go with more fun than reality."
The last time I heard a mainstream post-apocalyptic game hyped was for Brotherhood of Steel. The amount of leather-bikini wearing women in the Auto Assault screenshots allow for further comparison. At least this isn't using the Fallout name.
