It's as good as you would expect a FlatOut game to be.

If it doesn't work, update GFWL.

I really enjoy this game, it's a great arcade racer with beautiful graphics and some really fun physics.

You have a selection of different race modes to play, like demolition derby, time trial, race - and 3 different tiers of cars to enjoy as well: derby, race and street. Each tier gets progressively harder (and faster). I have only scratched the surface of it so far, but am enjoying what I have played so far.

It's similar to the older Burnout titles in the way it plays, with awards given for dangerous driving and smashes with other cars. When crashes happen (and they do - a lot), they look outstanding. It's far superior to the Burnout Paradise (also here on Steam) - so if you have to choose between the two, get this instead.

ENG:
The same beloved FlatOut 2, but with the new cars, new tracks, prettier graphics and twice more opponents in the races.
What it gives? That's right, even more fun!

RU:
Всё тот же горячо любимый FlatOut 2, только с новыми машинами, новыми трассами, похорошевшей графикой и в два раза большим количеством соперников в заездах.
Что это даёт? Правильно, ещё больше веселья!

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.
