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.

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

I was not able to complete even one hour game Flatout 3: Chaos & Destruction. I at least when I bought the game expecting a Flatout 2 with slightly better graphics and either innovation in gameplay, it's true I did not expect much out of him, but what I saw is unbelievable.

Cade the excitement of each race in Flatout 2? There is none of that here. This is a completely different game, where every minute in this game, seem hours. If you played Flatout 2, please DO NOT buy this game. Guarantee dissatisfaction.

Flatout 3, or The One Where The Flatout Franchise ♥♥♥♥ Down It's Legg
The first two Flatout games were good fun, but it's third installment felt like a step backwards so big that I would have believed you if you told me that it was released before the first game. The biggest issue with the game is one that writes the whole experience off: the physics are horrible. Cars don't FEEL right. Their acceleration, turning and collision feel simply horrible. You can really tell a different developer made this title.

Heyyo, DON'T BUY THIS GAME! It's an insult to what Bugbear, the original developers of Flatout created. This was made by some ♥♥♥♥-budget-Russian "game" "studio" and it's every bit as bad as its Metacritic score of 23 / 100. The text is poor, it feels like a free game a college student made in a week, and it's nowhere near the price they're asking for. This game deserves to die. Buy any other Flatout game or Bugbear's upcoming "Next Car Game"

Awful in every sense of the word, ESPECIALLY when you compare it to its predecessors.

But, before I begin, there's something you must know - The first two FlatOut games were made by Bugbear Entertainment, and they were phenominal racing games, especially FlatOut 2. This game? Totally different company that completely misunderstood everything Bugbear had done right.

First things first, the AI is pitiful. I know the name of the game is destruction, literally, but it's a RACING game, and I'd rather have people using force to win the race than veering off the track in the first lap to wrestle in the grass like kittens.

On this note, *everyone* targets you. I went into one demolition derby round, and it was hilariously stupid the way it worked. As soon as the countdown hit zero, the twenty-or-so other non-player racers veered to the opposite side like the Persian army and all ganged up on me at once, with the exception of, what, like, two motorists smashing each other's bumpers in. I mean, I played FlatOut 2's derby mode religiously, and it sometimes feels like the AI prioritizes you over their brethren, but even in it worst state it was nothing compared to this insanity.

Now, it's time to compare it to its predecessors - Yes, Flatout 3 was made by a different company than the first two, but being a sequel by its title, I have to rate it in comparison to its past successes in the franchise.

The other NPC's -- The way this development team tried to recreate Bugbear's non-player character gimmick is awful. If you haven't played FlatOut 2, lemme give you the jist of things - There were seven NPC's that were the only opponents in the game. They all had distinct driving styles, color schemes, and skills in different racing areas. They were so memorable thanks to this that you had those names ingrained into your brain after your first couple of races and figured out very quickly whose names to curse every time you launched out of your windshield.

Well, 3 messes this all up. There are something near 15 characters, and some of them are so similar that you have no hope of remembering them. The character models are all very idealized, if you catch my drift, and there's one fully anonymous man wearing a motorcross helmet with practically full-balanced stats that you'll choose every time if you're sane. That's another thing, too - Unlike the original, where you were your own identity, you have to choose one of these punks.

Anyway, 2.5/10, because it technically functions, I guess. Go buy Next Car Game instead, it's made by the same company that made the other FlatOut games. Speaking of which, go buy the other FlatOut games, too, they're super cheap and also on Steam. It's a shame those two don't have online multiplayer anymore, because if they did, I'd force you to buy them at gunpoint.

I bought the complete FlatOut Bundle just because it was on sale. I knew that FlatOut 3 is a completly mess and it was made from another developer studio. My idea was to buy all the three FlatOut games and ignore FlatOut 3. I can't even remove this ♥♥♥♥♥♥ game from my library, if i do then i remove all the FlatOut games completly. ♥♥♥♥ you Team 6 & Strategy First, now i have AIDS on my library. Forever.

This game doesnt deserve the flatout name for sure, the game doesn't feel or look like a flatout game, some of its maps are good, arena mode has to be the best of all modes but yet nothing compared to the real flatout,
handeling is bad, crashes are bad, jumps feel terrible, visual damage is meh, cars are meh, multiplayers doesnt seem to work, graphics are blelow standards of its time and heavyish, and most of the stunt modes are crap, the game had potencial, maybe if they refined some stuff and fixed the game bugs it could be something good, but wat it really did was ruin a great franchise...
I Just got this game bc the flatout complete pack was the same price as this game and it was included, otherwise i would never buy this game.

Racing games are easy to make. You put some cars on a track, make them drive around in a circle, and award the "win" to the guy who completes the track. That's how almost every racing game works it's a simple formula.

You start at easy races, and then as your player gets "skills" you continue to make the races harder, until he is racing almost perfect lines

Flatout 3: Chaos and Destruction doesn't seem to agree with this. It gives the player options of modes to play. There's a lot of variety here, that would be a good thing. The problem is the difficulty of this game is extreme. There's no tutorial, and the game just is very hard. If you turn the difficulty and number of cars down, the game is better, but still quite difficult.

There's no tutorials, which means there's no explanation of the boost system (it seem it awards boost for style points when near other cars, maybe?) and the AI is INCREDIBLY difficult. If you don't race near perfect on Easy, you'll lose. Even when racing perfect, you better be boosting. At medium, you don't have a shot, you probably need perfect boosts, and even then there's no rubber banding if someone gets ahead so expect to lose often.

The game has the following modes.
Race, (standard difficult race)
Challenge mode (Seems like race, couldn't beat the first challenge)
Splatout! (Kill zombies, race around the track for points)
NightShift (night driving?)
Speed (Faster cars, easier to crash)
Battle Arena (fight)
Big Battle (Bigger fight)
Stuntman (a variety of annoyingly hard challenges)

All of those would be amazing if done competently, but I would say none are properly executed on. Sad because I love racing games, and high adrenaline games are fun, but this does everything except get the blood pumping.

A shame but this is a very firm "Do not recommend" If you like Racing, Dirt 3 is good, if you like carnage, Burnout Paradise is bar none the best. If you like killing "Zombies" go play Carmageddon. But what ever you do, don't even boot up this game. It's not worth it.
