In this post "Fast and the Furious" world, souped up cars and drifting have become the mainstays of racing games. By following the same formula, many games feel stale and derivative, and run out of replay value. When a game comes along featuring a few junker cars instead of Porsches, you tend to take notice. Fuel, developed by Asobo Studios and published by Codemasters, is based on an old tech demo known as "Grand Raid Off-road" from way back in 2005. Asobo Studios might not have the triple-A record other developers have (their last two games were based on the Wall-E and Ratatouille licenses), but Codemasters' recent track record (pun intended) is stellar, with the hit Colin McRae and DiRT series.
