The Demoman: FUEL

It's the distant present. Global warming has led to floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, forest fires, and crappy garage-band soundtracks. The global economy is in ruins and thousands, perhaps millions of people have perished. On the bright side, there's a bunch of sweet places to race dirt bikes. Awesome!

The open-world racing game FUEL boasts over 14,000 square kilometers of gameworld to explore and 100,000 miles of tracks and trails to race. The demo takes up one tiny square of one tiny section of one tiny area of the map, and it's still pretty darn big. For the demo's only race, my motorcycle is delivered via helicopter to the starting line, which seems a pointless extravagance considering the global apocalypse and all. Read more »

Related Topics – Fuel, FUEL, , xbox 360, Trailer, PlayStation 3, PC

This trailer for Codemasters' upcoming racer Fuel asks us all, "Wouldn't it be better if your GPS machine created glowing arrows in the sky?" They expect an answer in the affirmative, but consider first how dreadfully embarrassing those arrows would appear during a trip to the theater. Far too arcadey for people of high class. Minimaps are surely more prudent in style.

Fuel is looking at a release on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 during the second quarter of this year. Read more »
