Ultimate Carnage was a port of FlatOut 2 for Xbox 360, that got ported back to PC with minimal changes in comparison with the original second one, but still amazingly fun. The biggest change was more drivers on tracks and greater graphical details. I would recommend Ultimate Carnage to everybody who loved the first two games and to people who just like to destroy stuff and enjoy one of the best PC racing games. It runs flawlessly even when it is, like I said, double port. Too bad it is the last FlatOut to this date.
NO! Just forget that there was anything like Flatout 3. IT IS TERRIBLE, PLEASE DON'T TOUCH IT!

Flatout Ultimate Carnage gives you the opportunity to create absolute mayhem in what is a decent racer. As well as racing, you build nitro by crashing into the scenery and anything in your path. Including your opponents. It is easy to forget about the racing and just cause carnage for the sake of it. It won't win you many races mind. This game is a mix of styles. Similar to Burnout, handling is more rally style (quite a bit is off-road) and the power sliding and nitro not unlike Ridge Racer. Whilst this makes for a good fun racer, some of the racing can get a bit 'flat' after a while.
The AI in this game is mighty impressive, Each car has its own driver and personality and it often feels like you are racing against humans. They are totally unpredictable, and you will find yourself having great ramming battles on the track together with head on collisions, flip-outs, wrecked cars and some wild manoeuvres.

Pros:
Fast paced gaemplay with lots of action
Cars can be upgraded
Decent selection of cars
Great variety of stages which include stunt stages like basketball, baseball, darts etc..
Graphics are pretty good
Has demolition derby
AI is actually fun to play with

Cons:
Upgrades for cars are basic, (muffler does nothing to the sound of the car, body upgrades are not seen on the actual car)
Cars explode when they get fully damaged
Cars drive the same when fully damaged as they do when not damaged at all
terrain does not have deformation. Would have been nice to have mud pits that affects cars and slows them down
The sounds of the cars are very muffled, even at full volume a V8 should be louder
Would have been nice to have real damage, flat tires, blown rads, broken tie rods
The controller is not customizable, reverse view uses the analogue stick.

All in all, great game

I am not much into racing games, but once I saw Flatout in action I had to try it out. It is not simple racing game, but destruction race as well, you do not need to finish 1st, it is enough to crash and destroy all opponents - therefore you are only one in the race and you win automatically. All the tracks are full of destructible objects and they look different in the start and in the end, when all the rails, trash and destroyed cars of opponents cover the track. Plus the soundtrack ♥♥♥♥ing rocks.

Everything FO2 was only better. People complain about GFWL, but it doesn't seem all that intrusive. Only annoying thing about it for me is that if you want to change your username you have to pay, so I'm stuck with one I really would prefer to change, but I begrudge giving Microsoft money for basically nothing.

FO1 is still my favourite, I prefer the handling in that one, but this is probably my second favourite of the series. FO2 would be third, and WE DO NOT SPEAK OF FLATOUT THREE.

It's easily the best FlatOut game in the series. I'd get the other games (except 3) too, but this game holds a special place (to me anyway) as a masterpiece of a racing game. It's essentially a better FlatOut 2. Get this game now! Stop ♥♥♥♥ing reading this!

The game where you get to bang hot chicks (also some guys) from behind with your Blaster XL all hardcore-style. It does feels slightly off in terms of music choice compared to Flatout 2, but now you got your Sofie Martinez in full HD and it's still the same total porn of a game none other could ever outdeliver.

If it doesn't run try this:

1.If another game is downloading, then it's a steam setting that doesn't allow a game to be run. (in Download settings)
2.Install manually from the game folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FlatOut Ultimate Carnage) the GamesForWindowsLive application (XLiveRedist01.02.0241.00) and it will run
3.If that doesn't work either , then install manually everything from the Support folder from the before mentioned path.
It works after any or all these steps!

This game used to be awesome when Windows Live was still around and stored all of your progress. Now that it's gone, every time you play you have to start all over. Steam has to be aware of this, yet they still sell the game, knowing that you will never unlock all of the best cars which take weeks of playing to aquire. I already have the CD of this game that cost me 5 bucks, but quit storing my progress when Windows Live shut down. Now I have the 20 dollar Steam version that does the same thing. Selling this game with no fix is BAD BUSINESS.

This is hilariously fun.

I love the racing mechanics and the destruction derby-style jockeying. The music is great for the most part. The engines sound amazing. You can customize your car. There are multiplayer servers.

Only one downside.

Games for Windows Live.

It's not really that bad, considering the fix is easy. The copy that comes with the game is broken, uninstall it and grab the one from Microsoft's website. That one works and well.

A timeless classic! There is nothing more to say. No other arcade racing game has such awesome feel and handling, at least no other racing game that i know of (and i know a lot). Especially in multiplayer mode this game is addictive.

In order to play FOUC you need to install Microsoft GAMES FOR WINDOWS LIVE. You should be able to install WINDOWS LIVE by doubleclicking the exe [LiveUpdateLauncher] located in the game directory. The game directory is usually [C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Flatout Ultimate Carnage]

BTW: We are still playing it online via "Games for Windows Live". The Microsoft announcement from June 2014 that "GFWL" will be closed at 1st July was false. Microsoft told us that "GFWL" will not close anytime soon.

First things first; I can't review Flatout 3 because I only played it for 3 minutes, and I've already uninstalled the game, and it's not worth re-installing just to play it enough to be able to review it. So I'll leave my review on that here to say that it's the worst driving game to ever exist.

But, FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage is extremely fun! I remember a few years back, I was in year 10 at high school, and FlatOut 2 had done the rounds on people's USB sticks. So a lot of us were playing LAN (is that still a thing?) battles of FlatOut 2 demolition derbies, and I absolutely loved it.

If you've played that game and loved it, you'll love this... mainly because it's basically the exact same game, bar a few changes such as better graphics. AI players are the same, FlatOut mode is the same from what I remember. It's just updated a bit. Oh well, still a great game. Buy it! And don't buy FlatOut 3! Even ignore the ultimate FlatOut bundle. It's worth paying that little bit extra to say that you never owned that piece of garbage.

Oh, and also, I've had no loading issues or any crap with this game, even on Windows 10. Ignore what the negative reviews say.

THis is my favourite out of the Flatout games. Its a lot of fun if you dont take it to seriously. I find it works better with an Xbox controller than a steering wheel (G27). I highly recommend this one. IN fact buy all 4 as one package.

One of the best arcade racing games. Good career mode, great additional events and very fun. In addition, it has the best music I've heard in a racing game. Fun for some coop play with friends too! The only drawback is that online multiplayer is dead, albeit it never was that good to begin with. The whole series is my favourite arcade racing game for years, and nothing seems to change it.
