Review of Flatout: Ultimate Carnage

Ultimate Carnage is a remake of Flatout 2 so if you're wondering which one to get, get this one - it offers everything Flatout 2 offers and more. There isn't much to say about this title - it's simply an amazing game.

Cons:

- You need a Windows Live account for the multiplayer.

Pros:

- Stunning visuals.
- Responsive and enjoyable gameplay.
- Appropriate music.
- Offroad tracks and tons of destructibles (Including your opponents).
- Career mode, multiplayer as well as a pretty fun "Stunts" mode.

Conclusion:

Flatout: Ultimate Carnage is a must for any fan of the offorad racing game genre. It's what an offroad racing game should be - I would go as far as saying that it's better than some of the more recent racing titles.

well worth getting if you love racing, smashing stuff up and just pure carnage with fast tempo rock music!

Hands down the funnest racing game I've ever played. My brother and I spent a solid week with this on the 360 and had a blast. So many great moments. This version is just a bit prettier.

Mini-games centered around launching your driver through the windshield was an unexpected bonus. Pretty addictive challenges.

Just don't expect realism. Not what this game is about.

This is a very fun arcade racing/derby game with great controls (with 360 gamepad anyway), graphics, sound, and music. It runs great on my fairly crappy PC, too.

There's a very large variety of races/classes/vehicles.

It seems to work just fine even with the Windows Live Marketplace shutdown, I've had no problems and can even play online. You still get the XBOX (games for windows live, but it hooks into your xbox gamerscore) achievements, too.

In case your confused Flatout Ultimate Carnage is Flatout 2 with a few extras. Basically Flatout 2 with a DLC in it would be the best way to describe it. In truth it was a re-release of Flatout 2, not exactly sure why.

I hate racing games. So for me to like a racing game it must be pretty damn fun. A garage where you can purchase and upgrade many vehicles. Your car takes lots of damage and so do the other cars. You can visibly see the damage of all the cars. You can totally wreck your car out of the race and you can also take out opponents by causing enough damage to the AI cars.

Some of the best feeling cars in a simulation. It doesnt feel "arcadey" yet cars become very managable at high speeds. There is even a crash durby mode.

WARNING - Don't even think about Flatout 3. Totally different company did that one and unless you want to see an example of the worst race game ever don't bother. Flatout 2 is the best in the series.

SERIOUSLY - No idea if the forum is still up for Flatout 3 but at some point I was wondering if they were going to shut it down because of SOOO many complaints. Have you ever bought a game programming book with an example race game in it? Flatout 3 was worse than that.

Awesome remake of FlatOut 2 with the better graphics and working on-line matches!

But "Games For Windows Live" is HELL:
1. The game won't start at all (without any error message) if you haven't installed the "support/XLiveRedist01.02.0241.00.msi" file from the game's directory on your hard disk (the setup wizard tries to install it automatically, but fails to locate the file and just skips it)
2. The game won't let you play if you haven't created an account at http://live.com/
3. The game won't let you play (will show a weird message) if you haven't tied your live.com account to an account at http://account.xbox.com/

Altough Next Car Game: Wreckfest is almost out, this is still the best flatout game out there, i suggest you buy this one instead of flatout 2. This version has improved graphics, more cars and game modes than flatout 2 has. but of course, as an flatout fan you should get all of them ;)

The game is fine, what is absolute crap is the Windows Live integration. Be warned. Like me, you may NOT be able to actually play what you have purchased!! Problem now solved, but I'm not happy with Windows Live.
