I own both Flatout 3 and FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage, which is a improved Flatout 2.
Flatout 3 was designed by a different team from original FlatOut series.
And it totally destroyed the name of the franchise.

The control and the present are so bad compared to FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage.
Other cons I can't list here, it would consume all the storage of steam.

So don't buy this, buy FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage.

Don't know why people give this game hate, just cause it was made by different devs doesn't mean it's bad. Infact it's much better than the previous games and here's why:

Much more responsive controls
Many more game modes
A lot more fun
Just much better really

No this isn't a troll it's a damn fun game actually.

Wow, Just WOW.

Ok, I'm just going to tell you my experience with this game. My entire 8 minutes, That's all I played of this, and that's all I will EVER play of this. So, I've heard past reviews, I've seen videos of it, And I was convinced that this was a disgrace. So how did I end up with it? Because I bought the pack that came with it. I legit only wanted Flatout 1 & 2, and this thing tagged along with Ultimate Carnage (can't get that to work, but that's probably still way better than this). Because of that, I decided to try it. "Maybe it isn't so bad," I thought to myself. "Maybe it's just a letdown and that's why it's lower rated than Ride to Hell: Retribution."

Oh, I was wrong. So, SO wrong.

So, after this thing eats 11GB of my hard drive (yes, 11 Gigabytes of valuable space), I hit play and brace myself. The loading screen pops up, the game loads, and I configure my controller. I choose a race, select my car and character, there's another loading screen, and the race starts.

Now, here's my first of many problems with this game. The visuals.
Why do all the cars look like the toy cars from that Burnout Paradise DLC? Excuse me, even worse than those?
Not to mention the stage I was racing in was completely bland and uninteresting, with only right corners. Yes, only 90 degree turns in this stage. Even Flatout 1 had curved corners in it's first track. And yes, I know this was done by a different studio then Bugbear, the original creators, but still, have some variety in your stages to get the player interested (not like I was to begin with).

Second of all, and by far the biggest complaint from everyone who's played this, the controls and physics. DEAR GOD.
The car turned so stiff around the corners. It was literally the most unresponsive control in a racing game I've ever experienced. And the physics? Do you know how crazy and wacky the physics were in previous Flatout games? Well, there's little to no physics here. When the car hit the one ramp in the stage, it was like it was on a preset jump path. It only went up and down, it didn't even turn to the side. It was kinda like that jump in the original Ridge Racer. Except this isn't 1994 or on a Playstation 1, this game was released in 2011. Also, do you know what was one of Flatout's main selling points or what made it fun? The crashes and ragdoll physics. Here, you tap one wall going 30 miles per hour and explode. And there's no ragdoll cam. And it doesn't even look cool. Have any of the developers who made this even play or SEE a Flatout game before? Because it doesn't feel like it.

And now for my last point which kinda ties into the physics point, the stunts. That's right, I actually played a different mode after the race. I tried something that I don't think anyone did before. I went one step further and tried a stunt event.

So, after the stunt stage loads, I hit the accelerate button, press eject at the ramp and.... OH MY GOD WHAT?
If you don't know (which you probably don't), you can pick different characters/ragdolls at the menu. I picked the first guy, who has a trenchcoat on. When I launched him during the stunt, it cut to a ragdoll camera for once. And, well....
You know how sometimes games have that bug where a hair piece or piece of clothing stretch out in an odd way? Like into a wall or something? Well, my ragdoll's trenchcoat did that the first time. Then I retried the stunt, and it did it again. I actually think the developers gave up after the first stage of this game and never bug tested it. You hear that a lot with ♥♥♥♥♥♥, undeveloped games, but I truly thought that when I saw it.

So.... in conclusion, don't buy this. Please don't buy this abysmal mess. Even if you got it with the pack, don't download it. ♥♥♥♥♥♥ graphics, controls, physics, this game has it all. Did I mention that this takes up 11GB of space? I did, but did I also mention this game costs $30 normally? THIRTY DOLLARS? You can actually get Flatout 1 and 2 on sale, which are way WAY better than this for less. Even when this thing is on sale right now (at the time of posting this), you can still get the original 2 for less.

I now know why everyone despises this game. Why it's the lowest rated game on Steam. And it's still up.

Don't waste your time with this game. It took me longer to type this than play it, and this was a better experience than that.

The game name says Flatout. But do not think of it as Flatout. It is not even made by same developers as the original Flatout, Flatout 2 and Ultimate Carnage. This is made by Team 6. Team 6 has not made a single good game ever. And this is not exception.

This game is absolutely horrible, I do not recommend it for anyone.
The physics are one of the worst I have ever seen in racing game.
Crashing does not feel good when it should in this type of game.
The graphics look just ugly. Even the first Flatout from 2004 looks better than this in my opinion.
There is not even a proper career mode, just a boring challenge mode that has random single races you can complete.
This game is overpriced, it should cost 5€/5$ at max, and even then I would not recommend the game to anyone.

Play the good old Flatout instead, or check out the Next Car Game by the developers of original Flatout games (Bugbear Entertainment). That will be a true demolition racing/derby game.

DO NOT BUY FLATOUT 3

This game is rubbish, if you loved flatout 2 or UC then don't buy.
Flatout 3 features cars that have some of the worse systems of damage e.g. you trade paint and explode, you hit someone face on no damage. Maps that have the track missing in places e.g. a map where you have to jump across a black hole and never make it (including the AI). Zombies that should be road cones (they don't move). Graphics that are worse then flatout 1. Maps that have nothing in them called off road maps.
This game was not made by bugbear it was made by Team 6. Think Pizza Dude and Taxi Raser. It is the same quality
