This game was great. It was better than i expected it to be. The vehicle customization could have been better. But other than that it was awesome! Whats not to love about racing in the middle of a storm or a tornado. The graphics were amazing. The whole map is huge. Taking an hour and a half just to go corner to corner. There are a lot vehicles, more than i expected there to be. I could go on about how much i loved FUEL. Play it for yourself and see. Don't listen to the critic reviews, just try it out you might like it. or love it like i did

After reading some of the mediocre reviews, I was skeptical on whether or not to still get this from Gamefly.
I'm so glad I decided to have them ship it!
I just don't understand the medioccre reviews at all! Especially IGN's review. So much that it's like they didn't even play the same game.
The graphics are so much better than I was expecting for this HUGE world. The vehicle, the environment, the extreme weather (yes it has extreme weather during online freeroam...just not tornados), all look fantastic!
Some reviews have said the environment looks barron. What? Are they kidding me? This is about as far away from "barron" as you can get.
With the mixture of offline and online freeroaming, career races and challenges, the online races, this game will keep anyone occupied for MONTHS.
Similar in design to Test Drive: Unlimited, the game requires players to search the world to open up new career races, new challenges, and new "Vista Points"...there are over 90 Vista Points scattered thru this HUGE 5,560 square mile World. Vista Points are basically places with great views of the World you are in. And it seems that a lot of online players like to meet up at Vista Points...so if you are looking for a crowd, that's where ya look.
Guinness World Records even awarded Codemasters an award for FUEL...for creating the largest World ever, for a video game.
The fun factor is extremely high! I've played for hours just online freeroaming, meeting up with other players and chatting, and going offroad'n and exploring. Tryin' to do steep downhill races with players thru thick forest is really fun!
I just can't say enough how much I love this game!
This is by far, the best offroading (and onroading) game I've ever played!
World so big, so many vehicles to unlock and buy, so many things a player can do...even creating your own races, anywhere in the 5,560 square miles...and many options.
What an amazing game! I'll be buying this from Gamefly!
