Jolt Preview: FUEL

Jolt writes:

''Sometimes racing on a track just isn't enough. Sure, the surrounding scenery of the latest racing sim may look pretty, but wouldn't you rather just hare off the asphalt, flatten the surrounding tree-line and disappear into the sunset amid a cloud of dust? That's the promise of FUEL, a so-called multi-terrain arcade racer that claims to boast the largest racing environment ever.

How big? 5,000 square miles, that's how big.

Inspired by recent environmental headlines, the game portrays a somewhat decimated western United States, where natural disasters are commonplace and petrol is scarce. From the ruins has risen the most extreme form of racing yet, where drivers and riders compete cross-country to win precious fuel and live to race another day.

There are checkpoints, but no tracks in the conventional sense, so you can take whatever route you like in whichever vehicle you prefer: bikes, 4x4s and other off-road vehicles for preference. Whether you take a sneaky route through narrow passages or just smash down everything in your path is up to you, although you'll be guided to a degree by in-game GPS, which recommends the best strategy for your given ride.''

The story is too old to be commented.

Oh didn't =) New Metallica sucks so much @ss that there aren't enough words to describe it. I had hopes for their new album, until I heard the two songs they released recently. It's like Metallica left Metallica after the black album. Enough ranting.

Looks a bit like Motorstorm, but seems to be focusing more on realism and less on arcade racing. If that's a good thing remains to be seen. I generally don't like Codemasters racing games(hated Grid).

You hated GRID? I liked the deeper career that one had

I tried to like it so much =) I really wanted to but I thought the controls were way off. To me it felt like you never got used to them and the cars behaved very weird. In the end I thought the game was overrated.
