4.0 out of 5 stars Good all-around road and offroad racer 11 Jun 2009
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you look at ratings for this game all over the Internet, you'll find an average mark of 6.5/10. I think this game deserves a little better because most reviewers insist on little glitches which don't really spoil the experience.

Fuel has a good lifespan. Online races with friends are really excellent. I didn't encounter any lag. Graphics are pretty good and weather effects really do much for atmosphere.

As far as driving mechanics are concerned, they're better in my opinion than those of Motorstorm which I think are too fancy and unrealistic (unlimited turbo anyone?). There are six classes of vehicles and they handle pretty differently. They all differ in terms of handling, grip, braking power, resistance and so on. The ground you're driving on is also quite important and cars and motorcycles will react in a very different way depending on its nature.

Overall, you get the best taste of Fuel taking your time: it is not a game for someone in a rush. Unlocking the faster vehicles takes a little time but it's worthwhile. Fuel is not a simulation game either but driving the faster vehicles with the first-person view (yes, THERE IS ONE - obviously game testers don't do a thourough job anymore) requires some amount of skill and attention. I particularly enjoy the quad vehicles: they simply feel great.

The only thing I regret is the lack of offline multiplayer. Likewise, if you don't have your PS3 connected to the Internet, you're likely to miss out a big part of the fun Fuel can provide.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vroom Vroom - Fuel Review. 15 Feb 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
One fine day my boyfriend and I were shopping and happened to drop into our local computer game store, we were not looking for any game in particular and happened to find Pure and Fuel on the shelves and decided to buy them both. As we had played the demo of Pure we decided to take a look at Fuel first, so when we got home we fired up the PS3 and inserted the disc.

At first it felt like another attempt at a Motorstorm clone without nitro, but after the first race, instead of popping back to the menu we were left in the open world at night and started to get a taste of what the game was really all about. We drove around a bit and night turned to day, then it started to rain and we found another race start point. We completed this and roamed around more and found a point of interest called a "Vista" point. The game seems to open up the longer you drive around and sometimes you get a real sense of loneliness and excitement the deeper you get into the mountains.

We have found amazing sights, even a dead volcano in the middle of a lake which was a pain to get to but amazing none the less. At one point we had a race and a huge tornado kept sweeping into the action sucking cars buildings and debris into the air inches from us. We have now unlocked an area that looked kinda white on the map and decided to drive there instead of taking a helicopter or warping to a camp, on the way there it started to snow, then the surroundings slowly changed from dusty mountains to ice cold deep snow, simply lush!

Okay this game isn't for everyone, and reading the reviews I can't help thinking that people are nit picking as they don't get the concept. It's an experience not a set of races, almost like an adventure on wheels!

Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3|Verified Purchase
This is a really very good game, much better than what I was expecting, and kept me busy for many hours with so much to explore and unlock. I'll sum it up with some good old pro's and cons:

The good:

- The post apocalyptic environment is HUGE, it can take a good half an hour to cross a zone, and there are nineteen zones! These range from desert, grass, canyon, snow covered mountain, the salt flat, some dilapidated cities, and even water (which can be crossed when you unlock the hovercraft). There's even a beached oil tanker in one of the areas, and also the real life sky walk from the Grand Canyon, which you can actually drive on! Did I mention that the map is enormous?

- The range of vehicles is excellent, with bikes, quad bikes, buggies, cars, trucks, SUVs and lots more in between, all of them with fairly distinct handling characteristics. There are also two distinct versions of vehicle, ones that can handle any terrain, and ones that can only handle the road but are much faster than their off-road counterparts. So you've got two different navigation styles right there, so see which you prefer, or which the current environment allows. As you can probably tell by now, If you like variety and amount of content, you're going to like this game :)

- The races are varied and entertaining, although in my personal opinion I find the exploration more fun. But hey, you've got to earn fuel (the currency of the game) to buy your vehicles and unlock new zones, so you're going to be doing plenty of events, which were still very enjoyable.

- There are plenty of unlockable liveries, vehicles and events scattered all around the map, so this really encourages you to get out there and really explore this vast environment.

Fuel is an off road racer. Unlike most it is bit more on the serious side. Kinda like Dirt and the like.

This is a good game and for me and the 14000km2 to wonder about are wonderfull. However the landscape turns to be a little big boring because it's very repetitive. Read more
