Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2 ):

This is a big and beautiful game, but one that has some flaws. The arcade gameplay is fast and frantic, spread across the many solo and multiplayer modes. Along with classics, such as "Checkpoint," "Speed Run" and "Circuit," Fuel offers "Chopper Chase" (traverse tricky rounds to reach the finish line before a helicopter), "Seek and Destroy" (crash into rival racers) and "Blitz" (race from one checkpoint to the next in order to reset the timer). Also included is a race editor to create and share your own events.

The game bogs down with the artificial intelligence (computer-controlled drivers), which is far from intelligent, and some of the game modes are just too long (and a bit of a yawn). That said, while not without its faults, Fuel should satisfy racing game fans for its breadth and depth. Perhaps a weekend rental is your best bet or give it a spin at your local video game store before buying.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
