Product Details:

From the publishers of Colin McRae: DiRT® and Race Driver: GRID® comes a revolution in multi-terrain racing featuring the biggest racing environment ever created. Born of Asobo Studios' cutting-edge proprietary engine, A.C.E. (Asobo Conception Engine), that has benefited from over four years of development, FUEL will present players with an astonishing no-boundaries, seamlessly streaming playfield that's over 5,000 square miles (14,000+ km²) in size. With environmental detail inspired by America's most incredible landscapes, FUEL will deliver the ultimate competitive go-anywhere racing experience. FUEL will see players competing across wildly different terrain from deep snow to lush forests and arid deserts, executing spectacular stunts as they race and explore this epic world of an unprecedented scale.

  • No boundaries racing: FUEL is a groundbreaking racing game without boundaries - on and off-road, two and four-wheeled vehicles race a massively diverse environment inspired by the most challenging real areas of the America. Experience exhilarating races in a huge range of vehicles, explore over 5,000 square miles of wildly different terrain, battle the elements and pull off spectacular stunts in this epic world of an unprecedented scale.
  • Vrooom with a view: In FUEL if you can see it you can drive to it. With a jaw-dropping draw distance of 40KM, there's never been a world so large to explore or so many striking vistas to discover. The entire game world is available for players to explore in free-roam and provides a challenging, compelling environment for FUEL's stunning race events.
  • Dramatic, dynamic, extreme weather: Set in an environmentally damaged fictional future, the game world is further brought to life with a full day/night cycle and real-time extreme weather that includes lashing rainstorms, lightening strikes, and tornados that transform the terrain and affect vehicle performance creating a unique race experience.
  • Break out of the corridor, win your way: With a huge range of vehicles, player choice lies at the heart of FUEL's action-packed races as players speed across huge swathes of diverse terrain, carving out on-the-fly routes to take the chequered flag. Roadsters reach extraordinary speeds on the asphalt, monster trucks steam-roller through forests and dirt-bikes scramble down mountainsides as gamers take on dangerous short-cuts, death-defying jumps and clatter through spectacular cross-over points in FUEL's go-anywhere at anytime world.
  • 5,000+ square miles inspired by America: FUEL's world is created from the most compelling, diverse and striking areas of America, from the Utah salt-plains, to the Grand Canyon and snow-capped Mount Rainier, all modelled from satellite data and rendered beautiful by the A.C.E. game engine. Players will explore and race around the remains of devastated towns, cities and villages and the on-going effects of accelerated global warming - from sandstorms, blizzards and brush fires to tsunamis and tornados - create unpredictable and spectacular races.
  • Online multiplayer: The online and offline worlds become one with a fully-integrated multiplayer featuring hundreds of preset challenges and countless locations where players can explore and race together. FUEL empowers gamers to let their imagination run wild with a powerful route editor that lets players create unique races anywhere in the gameworld and share them with friends online.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Totally Underrated Nearly every reviewer I've seen has given this game a mixed or low score. It definitely deserves at least a 7.5, in my opinion. The handling on vehicles is good, the world is huge, and the scenery is fun to look at.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun at times, not-so-fun at times A rather forgotten title, but somewhat deservedly so, Fuel has a strong lineage - produced by Codemasters, one of the best racing publishers - but falls a bit flat in critical areas. The open world concept is great (somewhere around 5000 sq. km!) but as a consequence the graphics aren't. The vehicles are diverse, but the personalization of them is pretty shallow and is basically just changing their primary color. The storyline is promising, but is really just incidental to the action and isn't very cohesive to the game and the promise it held wasn't exploited at all. And the racing? Handling is responsive, fun, and easy to grasp, but speed is poorly depicted and it can be incredibly difficult to follow the tracks. The track difficulty can be alleviated with practice (duh), but the sense of slowness really wears you down. On the good side there are LOTS of tracks and LOTS of space to just drive around, and the game is pretty cheap nowadays. For a minimum investment there is a lot to do here, but many parts of it have been done better elsewhere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from DECENT I thought that this was an ok racing game. The graphics ware great. Hardcore gamers would like it best. average gameplay. If you like this I would suggest pure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Massive map and quite fun at times This is worth the price, the map is huge, spanning over 5,500 square miles! 10 times bigger then just cause 2, if you like to just chill, and race cars across a post apocalyptic world than this is your game

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too boring and too difficult too soon I didn't like this at all the load times were long, there was one song on the soundtrack played only during the loading screen, and the challenges got to be too difficult after the first "camp" they attempted an open world concept, but they failed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a very cool racing game Admittedly this game is not for everyone, I happen to be enjoying it. The variety is definitely there as far as vehicles, Motorcycles, ATV, Trucks, dunebuggies and also monster trucks. Many of the areas you unlock look the same but the roaming area is pretty much unlimited. There's mountains, trails, towns and old buildings and abandoned vehicles. The story of the game is supposed to be set where it's just a wasteland but the part that baffled me was why there was road signs and guard rails if there is not supposed to be people there. You also get to knock down fuel barrels which act as currency in the game to buy more vehicles, there's liveries scattered around the various areas and they represent the different designs you can add to your vehicles. Really makes no sense to decorate an off road vehicle that will be caked in mud the majority of the time. Also customizing your avatar or character only makes partial sense on the cycles and ATV's. If you're in a car or truck you can't see your guy anyways. The major drawback to this game is the atrocious load times. The graphics are very well done and so are the environments but the load times remind me of being stuck in rush hour traffic, it simply takes too long. The controls are very responsive but the music is mind numingly boring. If you rent or buy this game do yourself a favor and turn the music to 0 while you play. Sound FX are just ok, I never knew when you hit a tire it would make the sound of running over a stick, just an example of the sound effects, pretty weak. All in all this is a great racer with nice graphics and a fun experience I'm enjoying it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite "Paradise"... With Burnout: Paradise still spinning in many arcade-racer fan’s disk trays, it will need to be a cold day in hell for Asobo’s off-road arcade racer to meet and match the excellence of its competition. You can’t blame Codemasters for releasing a product they feel is finish, either. Cut out the expectations and Fuel will still give you a good 30 mpg (miles per gallon); even in these gas-guzzling “rides”. Fuel puts you in a world where global warming combined with good ol’ mother nature have destroyed the, once beautiful, planet and a “hardcore” bunch of racers are looking to burn whatever gas is left in races across what is left behind. 5,500+ sq miles of drivable, destroyed terrain await 1 of your 75 “Mad Max” looking set of “wheels” with loads of challenges and points of interest along your route. Even though I had so many sq. miles of world to explore, I found myself launching Fuel like any other arcade racer; playing through challenges with the vehicles I started with, to the point where I need to upgrade my “wheels” to win when I can’t seem to. I only jumped into the free-ride mode, when I needed a break from the monotony of races. I’m just not impressed with “sandbox” worlds too much anymore – the idea, in itself, is feeling a bit “played out” but – is still a very welcome addition to this title. Driving across these 5000+ miles feels as “arcadey” as this type of racer should feel and I never felt like the physics were too far out of whack. Dirt-bikes, quads, and SUVs all drift much better than the “lifted” hotrods; and hotrods always stick far better to the concrete than the more, off-road focused vehicles. It’s not to say that it doesn’t take an hour to get accustom to driving more steering deficient vehicles, but what arcade racer truly doesn’t. I’m really a sucker for the idea of an apocalyptic earth, and racing around this nicely rendered post-apocolyptia quickly put me in a comfortable place. Speeding down highways, weaving in and out of lanes, slaloming between abandoned vehicles and 18 wheelers at 110mph is as exciting as it sounds – if you think that sounds exciting. Excitement also comes in the form of trees falling over onto the race path along with a handful of other objects like water towers and electrical-service poles. Not to mention some really awesome weather situations to add some intensity. I should probably mention that my first 2 hours of play through were utterly boring, right? I wasn’t too sure why at first, but quickly realized what was steering me off course – only after I had put together a custom soundtrack for playing Fuel. The sound direction and compositions really don’t fit, what I think, the mood of the game needs to be. Fuel should feel like your playing a clip of “Crust Demons of the Dirt”; a fast, thrashy, dirty, metal inspired soundtrack is not what you get in Fuel. Instead, you’re left with generic rock compositions – leaving me wondering if the music was considered an important asset to this title. Someone should have let them know; thank goodness you can put together a custom soundtrack. “So, is it better than Burnout: Paradise? The question everyone asks when they’re talking to someone about Fuel. They, really, are two different types of games within the same genre. No; Fuel isn’t as fast as Burnout nor should it be. Riding through a forest in and out of trees is hard enough. No; Fuel isn’t as polished as Paradise, but it’s not much farther than a mile away. No; Fuel is not a better title than Burnout: Paradise. It is – still a very compelling racer and fans of the off-road genre looking for a new arcade style title should definitely give Fuel a look. 30+ hours of gameplay in a world this big is never without something and someone to race both online and off. I’m cutting Asobo and Codemasters some slack. Fuel isn’t as bad as some say. It’s really hard to get any credit in a genre ruled by one, so let me be one of a few to say – Fuel is a title that’s as competent in every w

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You are now to move about the country... Well...this is my second revew of this game because I have discovered so much more in this game. There are many different tracks which you race on, and there is free ride, online and offline... who else has that??? The graphics are good...but i mean, they had to make 5000 sq. miles... so you cvant blame them. The sound is very good, but it repeats a lot which gets kind of boring after while. There are 74 vehicles and differnet paint shcemes for them. you can buy them or get them in free ride. The races in the middle to the end get tougher and tougher so you have to be prepared. Overall, this is a good game and i say anyone who really likes acing should get it. I liked it, but that is only my opinion...you cant just try it out for like 2 days... you need like 2 weeks to really get into it
