This game has invisible walls everywhere. Collision detection is something awful. Controls are a joke.

If you have 99.9% stable connection then go ahead buy this game, otherwise stay away.

When you in the mood for playing this game, then the internet goes unstable
GFWL won't let you play with your saved game. even it asks you to enter the serial number again sometimes.

I bought this game in 2009 (cd version), and it was a blast, i always liked Flatout, especially FO2, this game brought a new life to FO2, making the best destruction racing game ever made even better, its perfection at its finest, the graphics were the best, and the addition of the carnage mode made existing modes more fun... the only thing that i missed was the LAN mode for multiplayer but online was good. After 7 years the game held up kinda well, the graphics continue to look good (needs a bump in refletions and some textures), but what made the game lose some of its goodness was Games For Windows Live, i can't log in with my old account where i had all my progress because many changes were made in microsofts accounts and GFWL is abandoned and never got updated to accept those changes, so i was forced to make a new account to be able to play online, not a big problem for me, but Games For Windows Live DRM will eventually disappear (in my belief very soon) leaving the game dead, one solution would be integrating it with steamworks but Strategy First doesn't do anything (tipical from this publisher), and the developer says they can't do anything because they don't own the rights to do such thing (similar story happened to FO2 when Gamespy closed and left the online multiplayer dead to this day)... but if you are not concerned about the future of the game and your pc supports GFWL (some w10 users report not being able to use it) i recommend getting it, as it is a great game and in my opinion a must-play game.

The most gripping thing were the destruction physics, but I will be honest and say that the game never felt very gripping. Don't get me wrong though, it's not a bad game. It's just that I kinda didn't are after a few hours of playing it.

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.

I've played the retail of this game, the not retail, the steam release on another account and a few times on this account..

So.. What is Flatout UC and what makes it tick?
Basically, an upgraded Flatout 2 with some chievs and stuff. But saying that isn't helping much so lets just do a list of pros and cons. Cons first.


Cons:

- uses GFWL
- that glitch with rubbish on the road that normally should just bump from the car but that one critical time impales your car thru the middle and makes it vault into the air when you could have got that new lap record or won a hard race.
- online races are either stomps or annoying
- not the best graphics, but good enough
- you might not like all the modes of the game. personally i think stunts are fun in between some normal races with friends. Not a fan of the derby mode, timerun or unbalanced online games.
- way too much nitro as default


Pros:

- you can overshoot the bowling lane to spell "BO...NG"
- the commentator in stunts when he gets all excited
- seeing a ragdoll AI driver overtaking your car briefly as you hear the car had crashed behind you
- half a lap behind when only 2 laps remain? NOT a problem. You might still win.
- getting that flatout (doubletap throttle and hold) turn in the curve going exactly as you wanted
- playing close races with friends and then continuing racing online together against the world
- old but still going strong. same applies to game.
- more fun than many other racing games out there. the pioneer of derbylike racing games.
- no cliché storyline, just start racing and have fun.
- do you prefer to race on gravel, at racetracks or to demolish a shopping mall with your car? Look no further.
- match options are ok and exist. typically put 100% upgrades, no bonus and half or less nitro + only half damage and it's pretty cool.

If you like arcadeish, not too serious derbyracing with some amount of destructive environment with a flair of stunts, sterotypical AI characters, non-copyrightinfringing carbrands and something slightly more than flatout 2 i'm not sure why you're reading this after watching the trailer, just put it in the cart already you scrub.

8/10

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/
