A game misunderstood even by the developers themselves, Fuel delivers unforgettable journeys rather than arcade racing.

Met meer aandacht was FUEL op hetzelfde niveau van PURE geweest. Nu rijdt het zichzelf vast in het zand der middelmatigheid.

Fuel est riche d'un terrain de jeu historiquement vaste. En prenant certains risques, comme celui de transformer un jeu de courses Off-road en un semblant de MMO, le studio Asobo a réussi son pari en prenant le temps de soigner l'atmosphère, capitale dans ce titre en particulier. En effet, sans l'originalité de son cycle jour/nuit et des impactantes variations météorologiques, Fuel n'aurait finalement pas ce charme et cette personnalité qui le distinguent de la concurrence. Bien qu'il ne donne pas toutes les garanties espérées en termes de gameplay, la faute à quelques loupés et à une conduite perfectible, bien qu'il paie le prix de l'immensité de sa map par de gros soucis techniques, ce nouveau venu n'aura aucun mal à se faire une place de choix dans le marché très ouvert des jeux de courses.

Die Riesen-Welt von Fuel ist zweifellos faszinierend, letzten Endes aber nicht mehr als eine Kulisse. Ich gurke doch nicht 30 Minuten durch die Gegend, nur um eine neue Fahrzeuglackierung freizuschalten! Da müssen schon bessere Gründe her. Aber die Entwickler haben es versäumt, die endlosen Weiten mit spielerischem Leben zu füllen. Blickt man hinter die Kulisse, bleibt eine zwar unterhaltsame, aber auf Dauer enttäuschend ideenlose Offroad-Raserei.

In freudiger Erwartung warf ich die DVD ins Laufwerk. Tausende Streckenkilometer, unzählige Fahrzeuge und Extras zum Freispielen, sowie die volle Bandbreite von matschigen Offroad-Schlachten bis hin zu flotten Straßenrennen: Zu schön, um wahr zu sein! Das fertige Produkt bestätigt diese Befürchtung und enttäuscht auf ganzer Linie. Kollisionsverhalten, Fahrgefühl, Spielphysik sowie die Optik erreichen nicht das Niveau, das wir im Jahr 2009 erwarten. Für diese 40 Euro holen Sie sich lieber die herausragenden Titel Pure und Burnout Paradise zum Budgetpreis!

If you want to get the most out of Fuel, you should plug in an Xbox 360 controller. Other gamepads and wheels may work, but many players are reporting difficulties with their racing hardware of choice. But even given this drawback and others, some players will embrace Fuel's overall ambition. Nevertheless, if you're interested in racing--and there's a good chance you are--then you'll likely be disappointed by the game's shortcomings. Sure, there are a lot of races and vehicles, and there's a huge, unpopulated open world to check out, if that's your thing. Yet Fuel often seems to go out of its way to invite goodwill, only to let you down. If you're the patient type, it's worth checking out, but if you're looking for offroad excitement, games like Pure and Dirt are better choices.

After putting in numerous hours with Fuel, I've struggled to find anything that I especially like about it. The racing has issues, but in and of itself (outside of not being able to select a ride you might want), it works well enough. Not great, but well enough. If you play the game and just skip all of the collection crap (unless you have a ton of time to kill) and just simply move from race to race via the menus, you might be able to squeeze out an experience that isn't painful. But don't go wandering and expect to find anything cool - it's all just wasted space.

Depois de tanta expectativa, promessas e vídeos com demonstrações incríveis, ter o jogo em mãos e encontrar tantos defeitos realmente desanima os que estavam mais afobados. Nada que "Fuel 2" não possa consertar, mas dessa vez, a Codemasters escorregou feio na curva.
