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.
