Great remake of the FlatOut 2 classic - improved handling and physics making racing much more comfortable, and I really enjoy having 11 competitors instead of the original 7.
However I have a few specific problems, firstly being the reset input. In races it can theoretically be used at any time, however in derbies it takes upwards of 15 seconds to reset after being flipped or getting stuck on other cars, leaving plenty of time for other competitors to smash into you multiple times. I was hoping this would have been an improvement from FlatOut 2, but it wasn't.
Secondly, health seems to have been decreased, or smashing and crashing deals more damage. I'm not sure which one it is, but it's too simple to wreck an opponent. In 4 lap races on wide and open tracks, a third and sometimes a half of the racers are wrecked long before the race is finished.
Finally, this game is way too easy. The improvements made were necessary, but it's also taken away the challenge of the game. I'm halfway through the Race Series with 100,000CR, enough to buy a new car and all the upgrades with 40,000CR in the pocket. With health decreases and damage increases, I average around 15 slams and up to 3 wrecks per race, while finishing in 1st place and 10 seconds ahead of 2nd place, and with the rewards money is very easy to accumulate.
FlatOut 2 was my childhood so it's great fun to play through these games again. I'm thoroughly impressed by Ultimate Carnage and will continue to play it for hours upon hours, and others should too. Recommended for mindless smashing, crashing, explosions and complete destruction, this game doesn't disappoint.
