fuel is a great game, let me start with that. its your typical racer with different classes and tracks.

you can compare the vehicle classes to that in motor storm.
trucks, bikes, four wheelers, buggies, and monster trucks

you can compare the world to burnout paradise
except it is absolutely huge!!!!! i started driving east when i started and after a half hour i had hardly went anywhere!!!!

the things that kinda suck.
it feels as if your constantly driving on ice. some of the graphics look like ps2. if your wreck into something you get a respond screen, and some times its not that accurate.

this would be a good game for $30 but since it costs $60 i'd definitely just rent this one and send it back

Bad

Utterly Disappointing

The world is huge, but there's nothing in it. There's no reward for exploration, and you'll spend your time winning races to unlock new areas. These new areas are the same as the old areas, and the races are bland and un-fun.

The driving physics are horrible. They make driving boring, and give you almost no control over your car. No car, on or off road, has any amount of traction, so you'll be going sideways a lot. Since driving is the only thing you'll be doing, that's bad.

The gameplay is mediocre arcade racing. The multiplayer is more of the same.

The graphics are good. That's one thing you can't deny about this game.

The sound is horrible. Engine sounds are bland and generic, as is the music.

This game's only selling point was the huge world, but the world is too big and you'll never see most of it. What this boils down to is FUEL is a mediocre arcade racer with bad driving physics and uninspired courses. Don't bother with this, play Burnout Paradise or MotorStorm instead. Either one will satisfy your urge for open world or offroad racing.
