4.5 Starts off great.. then... oh dear. Vakarain | 14/02/2011 | See all Vakarain's reviews (1) A game which looked like it had promise, fun, and tons of stuff to do. In general this game was quite fun, exploring, cruising online and other stuff, but it all got boring pretty fast. The map is an amazing feat, but it seems to lack much variety, and becomes daunting and very boring after a while. Unless you like burnt tress and rocks of course. The collections of vehicles you can unlock is pretty nifty ranging from Quad bikes to Hovercrafts, and getting them all takes a lot of time and patience, which a lot of gamers lack. And don't bother trying to drive at night, you'll end up crashing over and over. The AI vehicles cheat like many other racing games. Fast start, slow down, let you pass, then speed up at finish. Also non race AI seem to crash into you a lot. And what this game seriously lacks is a soundtrack.. an hour drive listening to the drone of a quad bike, and the 'in game music' if you call it that, the same tune repeated over and over makes it even more boring. So all in all Fuel gets a 3/5 out of me, for being a novel idea, but the lack of further ideas really ruined it.
