better question is where is Road Rash, about 3+ years ago EA said that they would be working on a new Road Rash game.

What, you don't like how the bike bounces then floats in the air like a balloon when it hits a tree or rock straight on?

Game looks neat but with no split screen multiplayer I'll pass.

I can still fire up Motostorm if I want a good racing game for single player or online.

Its all personal preference and i prefer Arcade style racers with a little realism on the handling that doesnt go anywhere near the realism of a sim.

Its same with flight games...im gonna love HAWX but you would never catch me playing FSX in a million years.
Sounds like me....to a "T"

FUEL offers Biggest Game World, Guinness Certified
Quote:
Guinness World Records presented Codemasters and Asobo Studio with a certificate that officially documents: Largest playable area in a console game: The largest playable environment in a console game is 5,560 square miles (14,400 km), and is featured in FUEL (Codemasters, 2009). The area features rivers, deserts, forests and mountains and was demonstrated at the offices of Guinness World Records, London, UK, on 20 May 2009.

tbh I agree with Slawter, FUEL looks pretty lifeless and ordinary. I won't be surprised if it's a stinker with the biggest game world.

2 reviews out. Pretty much what most predicted. Mediocre game, bargain bin title at best.

Eurogamer 5/10

OXM 7.5/10

Meh, score is pretty low. Shame really. Could of been a great game.

Just for comparison at Eurogamer.....
MS: Pacific Rift got a 7/10

Motostorm a 8/10

DIRT got a 8/10

Test Drive Unlimited a 8/10
