VG247: Codemasters racer FUEL may be the most open game ever created, according to producer Phil Wright. "FUEL is arguably the most open-world game there is," Wright told VG247.
Nope, Elite2: Frontier is 100000000 times more open :p as in a whole universe size open. A mere fraction of a planet can not compete with a universe. But most likely fuel will have a more manageable control than Frontier. Nothing annoyed me more than zipping past the target planet by several lightyears cause i started the reverse thrust a minute to late.
If I were being pedantic I could point out that they mentioned 'open-world' game, not 'open-universe', but I'm not. :) And yeah, the controls in Frontier really caused me headaches....
I don't think trillions of miles of empty space and barely polygonal planets compares in the least. Recreate that game in the kind of detail in Fuel and then we can talk about your Godhood.
Yeah, well, Just Cause was pretty damn open... We all know how that turned out XD
Coulda used some more work, but for my money, JC was a very enjoyable game. I'm looking forward to more hanging on to a jet fighter's wing at mach 1.
Now if they would had made Just Cause an MMO, they might would had a winner.
hmmm not sure about this game. gonna have to read up on some reviews
Talk about old school.
its almost here but wait for the reviews
Wow, I never noticed how soon that is! Anybody know of any plans for a demo? I still can't decide on this, I like the prospect of an open world but I need to see more of it.
@micro_invader Yeah, I've been trying to keep this game on my radar, but it just keeps slipping off! It looks good, and I like the open world idea... But I have no idea how this one will turn out! There's so many promising racing games coming that I just don't know what I'm gonna do!!! Split/Second. Burnout Paradise DLC. Blur. Fuel. Dirt 2. Grid 2. Forza 4. Maybe GT5 one of these days!! Codies F1 game next year. Rage (not strictly racing, but lots of vehicles).
As if this can compete with GT5 LOL
And why would it want to compete with it? And who says it is competing with it? The Gran Turismo series claims to be a sim. This is obviously not.
GT is the only racing series that even matters, its numbers destroy every other wannabe racer. So it does compete with it.
this is a total 180 away from GT5.. also i always wondered.. how come GT never has any damage modeling? i know in the PSX versions it was hard but now i think they are getting LAZY.. i mean other games have licenced cars with damage but GT5 has non of that.. its the only game i know where i can go 100MPH and slam into a wall without even a scratch.. if only REAL LIFE was like that.. wouldn't it be great?
Well you'll have to excuse these kids. They forked out too much money for their PS3s and the only game that's worth anything on it is GT5. They need to compare it to everything on every other platform to validate their purchase.
Well I buy games because they are fun, not because their 'numbers destroy every other wannabe racer'. Personally I prefer arcade style racers to sim style, because I have yet to find a sim that really reflects driving at speed. I like the GT (and Forza) series, but I find it's poor AI, lack of damage, and lack of penalties for hitting competitors boring. Hopefully GT5 will improve things. Damage modelling will go a long way to helping, but we've already seen stunning damage model in Grid. Nothing in GT5P makes me think GT5 will deviate from the GT model we've seen in the past. Your point is also... well, pointless... because Fuel is not releasing at the same time as GT5. So why do the devs care? Are you not going to buy a game purely base don the fact that it won't sell as many units as GT5 probably will?
What's wrong with you, I LOL AT U? Are you just a habitual killjoy or is it a genetic disorder?
Heh i like the wording that ILOLATU uses. By saying, "its numbers destroy every other wannabe racer", he eludes to the fact that GT5 itself is only a wannabe racer.
my god *i lol at u* used the unlimited stupidity cheat code....
Fuel is a crap game, I think the game should have been released for the Wii because that's how bad it looks, they said they could fit the burnout paradise mad over 100x's in Fuels open world environment...OBVIOUSLY! that's because there's no buildings & it doesn't have a dozen A.I cars driving on the street. Anyways this game should get a rating of 1/10 because it looks so bad and it probably plays bas as well seeing the gameplay. Absolutely no sense of speed at all.
PP's back with his gay-ass Banjo kaFLOP! avatar
being he key word there.
I'm still unsure about this game, anyone know if there's gonna be a demo?
I just hope that for all the talking going on about their game that it actually turns out good otherwise they are going to look like the biggest douches in the world, just like Denis Dyak.
Can you get out of your car and walk around? If not then STFU..
so you would only class games where you can walk as open world? I present to you, Sir. Burnout Paradise.
I still think WoW has this honor.
Looks pretty good.
