It may be the sleeper hit of June, as many critics have been praising Fuel for it's distinct open-world feel and flat-out intensity. The off-road racing genre has been soaring high over the past few years, and it seems as if Asobo has given us yet another winner. In addition to the likes of MotorStorm: Pacific Rift and Pure, Fuel ought to be an entertaining racer with plenty of appeal and longevity. The developers have often boasted of the ability to literally travel anywhere off the beaten path, so-to-speak, and it's this feature that is undoubtedly the biggest selling point. If you like the concept, there's a darn good chance that Fuel is a must-try.
