CheatCC says, "Fuel is definitely not a bad game. In fact, I liked it a lot. However, it is not the standout title that I was expecting it to be. Last year's GRID was such a memorable racing game, and I was really expecting Fuel to be another standout title in the same vein. Despite being a very competent racer, and one fans of arcade-style racing will enjoy, Fuel just doesn't ever cross the line into "amazing" territory. If you were expecting lightning in a bottle, Fuel keeps the electricity in the environmental elements and out of the gameplay."
