game is a blast

Ok pun was intended but I was blown away by how fun this game is. I would have slapped down 800MS points easy. Graphics are some of the best I've seen on arcade. Controls for vehicles are a little sloppy (only used truck so far) but I've played worse including retail games. What does everyone else think?

Not only do I like it way better than the other free game Doritos gave us, but I'm having more fun with this than I did with ModNation Racers earlier in the year. Speaks to both how good this is and how bad MNR is.

I have to agree that this is fun, for free it's particularly excellent.
Graphics, sound, controls - it's better than many arcade games you'd pay for.

Only this i would say i dont like is the car controls.. but the way i see it.. it would be too easy to dodge shots from the turret if it wasn't like that.. and its still not hard to drive. I like this game. Graphics are great and its fun. Just a shame that no one really knows about it. MS should advertise it on the Dash!!

Agreed, very good for a free game. Would have paid 400 msp but also been disappointed that achievements are so easy. The game practically gives them away..

Did you actually play FUEL for any length of time? You have weather effect, ambient lighting Track debris and the vehicles all going at once. I never had a frame rate drop. Plus the size you could free roam for hours and not see the same thing twice. The graphics were still very good; not that this games graphics are bad but better than FUEL? No way.

Definately an awesome game, I liked the idea since the original pitch videos, and it turned out WAY better than I expected a free game, especially a Doritos one.

Chances are... I wouldn't have gotten it if it was 10 bucks/800 MS. Because you need to spend like 20 - 25 to get the amount of points needed. Micro$oft really just f'd up the process of getting arcade games for me with that.
