Biggest Game Map Ever? - On Xbox 360

What do you guys reckon which game has the biggest in game map ever on the 360?

The biggest ones I've played in are probably:

Fallout 3,
FUEL,
Just Cause 2 &
OP: Flashpoint but this game wasn't really free roam like the above 3 so dunno.

I reckon FUEL has the biggest map ever, well possibly, but it took me i think like 2 hours to get from one side to the other in like the fastest bike in the game.

What do you guys reckon?

Guinness World Records reckons Fuel is the largest videogame ever made, as it spans 5,560 square miles of terrain.

but the biggest map I've played on was probably Test drive:Unlimited. Not close to being as big as that since it takes about an hour to do a lap around the entire island.

Just to add something I found even more amazing

Why would you want a map that big!!!

Fallout 3 was pretty big, and probably big enough i think.

Sacred 2 is very big. I think it takes about 5+ hours to run along the borders of the map (since there are mountains and forests and stuff u can't do a clear lap around the map)

Oblivion is also rather big + it has a Add-on map

Ones I can think of are:

Morrowind (Not technically a 360 game, but you can play on 360)
Oblivion
Fallout 3
Operation Flashpoint, (The first DLC adds on free roam, it's a large map)
Sacred 2
Test Drive was big
Borderlands
ODST is actually quite a good size
Risen is big
Assassins Creed 1 and 2 are big aswell

I actually went out and bought Fuel yesterday on the basis that it's big. I figure although the reviews aren't fantastic, there's plenty of hours of fun to be had in such a huge open environment.

The problem with Fuel is that a map of that size is really unnecessary, you're forever in a vehicle so you can't roam around and cause trouble anywhere. Just Cause 2 probably has the biggest map to actually do stuff in.

I hear Red Dead Redemption is going to have a pretty big map, can't wait to ride a horse around that one.

Oblivion and Fallout 3 were huge.

How about Mass Effect 2? Sure, individual planet maps were really small, but the galaxy map had plenty to explore.

I find the Farcry 2 map to be pretty huge, and I hated that because all of the missions are scattered around it and you need to go to each side of the world to complete them XD

Arguable. It's on Xbox Originals, for Xbox 360. So it can be argued that the game is on Xbox 360.

Biggest map I've ever played on the 360 must be Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising. If counting all games: Daggerfall

Its got to be Just Cause 2, it takes bloody ages to get to missions if you drive everywhere. FUEL is big, but its so damn boring that i dont think it deserves to win purely on size, it needs to be a fun environment aswell! The first Just Cause was pretty big aswell if i remember.

while fallout 3 might not have been as big as the others being mentioned (i haven't played most of the ones being mentioned either), it lacks vehicles unlike most of the other games. i feel that to travel around the entire map on foot would exceed any amount of time in any other game. but i could be wrong! if someone else has played this game + some other ones being discussed, they could confirm / deny this.
