One of the big points of FUEL is the rapidly changing and extreme weather conditions. Take a look at this video, showing some of the weathers effects in action.
Weather effects are pretty cool. But what does that have to do about how awesome the game is? Ive seen alot of vids of this game, even seen someone play it in action. It seems that the weather and envirnment in an open world is the pitch they are using to sell the game. The effects are cool, but the racing looks really dull from what I seen. There aren't any big jumps, the sense of speed is mediocre, and despite the cool effects, the car models don't look that great. Sure the tornado looks totally rad, but open world racing isnt so open if you have to drive on a certain path any was. There is not enough in this game to justify a purchase, unless of course you dont have a ps3 and cant buy motorstorm 2.
I think having this open world thing is a bad idea since you can take any root yes! but you would never really see your opponents..making it quite dull. I rather PURE than this title
Pure was pure bliss. BTW,, open world racers are only good if there are roads, street signs, and then secret paths. Just look at burnout and midnight club and you will see two good examples of what I mean. Ive seen vids of this game, and it does look really boring.
lol at first 2.1 and 2.2 ...but I gotta agree with Old_School_Gamer. The street versions are good because you are still limited to the streets, so you still have opponents to race against close by, and traffic to wrry about,e tc..but the whole open racing thing in an off road setting is lame.
lol. That seriously made me laugh out loud.
I LOVE the idea of exploring and an open world like this, but the racing and physics seem to have seriously downgraded since they first showed this title. Not to mention everything looks very choppy now. :(
and get the KZ2 engine on that b*tch..that would be insane.
I think the game will be a cross between Pure and Rage more than anything else. Much more detailed and elaborate that Pure of course, but have that added bonus of more freedom like Rage, plus a small storyline attached - hopefully. I can see the possibilities of the Open WOrld, especially now that NFS will be doing the very same thing with NFS: Online World on the PC only.
does any remember Need for Speed: Porshe extreme? (I think that was it's name) I loved driving up into the mountains and the weather would get real bad and it would be snowing real hard. Man, I love that. Or Call of duty (I think the first one on the PC) with the wooded winter and the muffled sound effects the sound of your feet crunching in the snow and the dogs barking in the distance. Maybe I like games with snow in them because I don't live in the northeast anymore.
NFS5...memories... but would you like the game simply for the weather features? Doesn't it get boring after a while?
It would be awesome if the vehicles had guns. I would be totally sold then.
I'll probably start chasing those tornadoes and see how far i'll get launched into the air. For the snow, i'll probably stop my car and see if it cover my car. The thunder though looks really crappy. I don't know. I was really sold when I saw the weather effects for FarCry 2, maybe it'll be the same for this game? Not sure.... hmmmmmm
I think I'll just wait for Pure 2.
The weather effects do look good but like others on here im not to sure about the actual game itself. The engine the game runs on seems pretty solid as it was with grid and dirt and i would love to see it implemented in some other titles.. a fps for instance. Until then i think a demo is needed for fuel.
this game looks good but you really cannot get anything better than motorstorm, that game is truly brilliant
