    I found that frustrating handling overshadowed the plethora of content in what would otherwise be an enjoyable racer.

    While it did have sporadic bursts of fun, Fuel Overdose sadly falls flat.

    A good game doesn't have to be carefully crafted to be entertaining. As Fuel Overdose demonstrates, sometimes the fun comes from the design mistakes. As a top down racing experience it offers frenetic action at the expense of constant control issues and glitches that promise frustration, but even though the chaos ensures a sense of pleasure since you can mess with everything, everywhere. Sadly, character design and presentation are kind of archaic.

    Fuel Overdose is a clear take on a classic, old-school, top-down racer with weapons games that were much more common in the 90's. Its nostalgic approach is enriched with very neat ideas like the grappling hook or remote mines, but it's also visible in terms of production values. Despite its visual shortcomings, little bugs and imperfections, it's typically the kind of little indy game that could become a dear and memorable experience, if only it didn't lack a local multiplayer, or players in its online multiplayer.

    All in all, Fuel Overdose has a ton of replay value for those willing to look past its warts, especially for the price point.

    For the most part, Fuel Overdose is a decent game that is hindered by some glaring problems.

    Fuel Overdose is a huge disappointment and a sloppy game as a whole.

    If you are looking for a top-down car combat racer with a ton of content for a relatively low cost this could be a title to check out, but if you are looking for a well polished game that does not need a number of hours to crack the surface, you should probably pass.

    Mixing action and racing can't really be considered something original, but it's always a good start if you know what you are doing. Fuel Overdose is not that innovative, and it won't get us hooked, but it can give us some fun moments due to its varied and crazy courses.

    Fuel Overdose is the pure definition of average. Nothing really shines about it and nothing ever feels exiting.

    Fuel Overdose is enjoyable in small chunks, but chronic camera issues let it down. The title simply tries to do too much, and it lacks focus as result. With a little more refinement, this could have been an original and compelling release – but in its current guise, it feels like a missed opportunity instead.

    Fuel Overdose is an arcade racing game undermined by gameplay problems and technical issues.

    Chaotic action can be fun, but Fuel Overdose takes the concept too far. Local multiplayer would be an obvious highlight if it actually existed, but the lack of that and the sloppy controls, annoying camera and boring levels makes this game somewhat frustrating.

    A mediocre racing/action game with tactical elements and a couple of good ideas. Hard to master but with several game modes. Maybe next time, I-Friqiya!

    Fuel Overdose is a top-down arcade racer full of potentially good ideas...poorly implemented.

    Simply put, Fuel Overdose can't figure out what it wants to be, and that's a shame.
