, has the biggest playable area in a video game ever in the history of the entire world. Ever (Until, maybe, FUEL 2
Codies and developer Asobo were handed a certificate by Guiness World Records that said, “Largest playable area in a console game: The largest playable environment in a console game is 5,560 square miles (14,400 km˛), and is featured in FUEL
(Codemasters, 2009). The area features rivers, deserts, forests and mountains and was demonstrated at the offices of Guinness World Records, London, UK, on 20 May 2009.”
Some folks think that big is beautiful. Some like the apple of their eye to be a bit more trim. Mark SPOnG tells us that, based on what he's seen of preview builds of both FUEL
and THQ's recently-announced MX vs ATV Reflex
, the leaner THQ game is looking prettier. But then, he might just like his games all anorexic (the bastard!) For more on that, see Mark's Reflex hands-on here
To celebrate the whole thing, Codies has released a new video on its official FUEL website
. SPOnG also has some new screenage.
