Don't be stupid like me and don't buy this game, it's total garbage. If you want nice destruction derby game, get FlatOut2: Ultimate Carnage, soo much better than this crap. Or get Bugbear's new game called Next Car Game, thats a great destruction derby game (but still in making).

The real problem with this game is, that it isn't made by Bugbear but by some ♥♥♥♥♥♥ company.
Graphics seems (at least to me) like downgrade from FlatOut2.
It have horrible original "music" and not licensed music from rock bands like the other flatouts.
From what else i saw in that half hour i wasted on it was horrible maps like simple square with some houses around and thats it, thats your city race track. No destructible props at all.
The "throw your driver out of car" minigames are worthless, so much better in FlatOut2.

My verdict? It's 1/10. One point for cool name that can charm fans like me who played and loved previous FlatOut games.
Seriously, don't buy this crap, hell, don't even pirate it, it's just waste of time.

P.S. On the other hand, if you want to torture some clueless friend, get this game for him/her. He/She will get this monster big mindf*ck and will do anything for you, just not make him/her see this game again.

Unfortunately Flatout 3 is a big disapointment for me and many fans of previous parts.
What went wrong?
Gameplay has lost this "catchy" spirit making this game addicting. Controls has changed and physics as well. You don't have any feeling of the vehicle You driving. The game seems to be at faster pace. Too fast form me :) Too many explosions and destructions out of a good taste. Soundtrack is flat and colorless. It isn't bad but... There is no tracks of some famous rockbands as previously. Graphisc has not made any progress. It has made a step backwards as it stay in place.
Flatout3 has a lot of game modes some of which are not playable at all.

I like SPEED Mode it has something good :)

The rest is kind of fun ... for about 5 minutes. There is no career mode :(

To be honest : Flatout 1 & 2 have their own style and leave in gamers' minds an unique impresion and lots of good, warm memories. FO3 does not...

All the other flat out games are good and fun......

This game is neither. I played it for a little then uninstalled it.....

IMO this game should be buried in the desert like Atari’s ET game as it’s a steaming pile.

I do not recommend this game to anyone....

After playing please go and get some therapy… And no not mention the words flat out 3.

The worst FlatOut of them all infact probably one of the worst racing games ever made which is ashame because i really like the FlatOut games the gameplay honestly isnt that great it sucks infact its terrible, the career isnt really that exciting, car selection is not to bad i suppose, AI is very ruthless they will shove you out the way if they get the chance, menu music is INSANELY LOUD and so is the sound effects from the cars and engines.

You wont like it 1/10

Do not get.

If you want a racing game based around destruction then get flatout 2, because this game is not anything like it says. this game is TERRIBLE!

If you play the previous flatouts, you will understand why i hate this, this THING more than Ride to Hell.

Take Carmageddon, take out the gore, the good gameplay, and add some new cars to it, upgrade the graphics to Worse-Than-FlatOut 2 tier, mix it with horrible performance and put it in the oven for 25 minutes at 200°C.

Wonderful, you've got FlatOut 3! Except it's not wonderful. In fact, throw it in the trash and think about what you just did.

This game is the downfall of the FlatOut franchise. Not only because it was made by a game dev studio that usually does Wii games. No, this game also lacks of pretty much everything that made FlatOut fun. Realistic damage models, good driving physics, nice visuals, funny minigames, multiplayer fun. This game has nothing of those. In fact, it is probably the purchase I regret the most. Not only because the game is not worth the money, but also because you get nothing for your money.

All your good expectations are shattered in the very first race. The driving feels awful, the physics are horrible and don't get me started on the damage model. You'd expect a game that looks like this to run smoothly, but it doesn't.

I don't even know if I want to go trough the pain of writing a full review here, but there's not much to say than DO NOT BUY THIS GAME IF YOU EXPECT THE FLATOUT EXPERIENCE.

Please support the real FlatOut 3 instead, Bugbears "Next Car Game" which you may find in the recommendations above.

Played for 5 minutes and already hate it! It was impossible to come in first place even if I didn't wreck the entire race. Drifting was pointless since the physics were garbage. I should have listened to all the bad reviews when I bought it, but thankfully I didn't pay full price.

This game is ♥♥♥♥ing re-tar-ded. In every aspect of the word.

Its borderline unplayable... I mean you can play the game. But I assure you, you will not enjoy you're experience. Absolutly the worst controls I have ever had to try and use in a racing game.

I luckly got this in a bundle for the other Flatout games which I hear are all really good. So I thouht I would try out the latest one first since it had steam achievements and had modern graphics.

Well at least I have the other games of the series that are actually FUN to play. So ya... If you get this game, It had better be beacuse you bought the Flatout bundle like I did. And when you do pick up the bundle (for cheap) make sure to hide this game in you're steam library.

Step 1: Find Flatout 3 in your Library under the "Games" tab.
Step 2: Right click Flatout 3 and click "set Categories" from the list of options.
Step 3: Click little box near the bottom left corner that says "Hide this game in my library"
& finally
Step 4: Have the peace of mind knowing you hid an embarassing game from your steam library. And people that may look on your Steam profile will never know you had this garbage amongst your collection of ACTUAL games. :-)

Don't ever think of getting this, no matter how cheap. I'm a fan of FlatOut and FlatOut 2 and didn't even finish the first race in this.

It's bizarrely bad, the kind of bad that makes you pause in awe of its epic, sweeping suckitude and instills you with the immediate urge to warn other people lest their lives too will be tainted. There is no point in getting into details about the different aspects of this game. Just assume it's worse than any racing game you have ever played in every aspect.

I'm not exaggerating. Don't be like me. It's not too late for you. You can still save yourself.

Don't get FlatOut. It doesn't run on modern machines. Don't get FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage. It's Windows Live. Get FlatOut 2 and wait for Next Car Game.
