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 ♥♥♥♥ty 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.

I know what you're thinking. It can't be that bad. You're thinking "I liked Flatout 2 so this will be like more of that". It's not. It's like an N64 game graphics, even on ultra. It's terrible.

Flatout 3, looks visually better than Flatout 1 and Flatout 2, but the controls and gameplay are utter rubbish. This game is nothing at all like the first two and should never have been released. Complete waste of time.

Just simply terrible game. If you want a good game similar to this just get the "ultimate carnage" best one. But this one the options are very limited in everything. The people who made this I'm sure they don't know anything about new games now days or maybe not even old ones for that matter. It might be worth the buy if it goes down to $50 cents

I have come to a conclusion that it is even worst than when i first looked at it. The game feels just like a cheap arcade game. The vehicle physics is crap and wanky. The destruction is okay at times but it pretty craply done compared to the other games. Some items like cones and wood float and never move. I can no longer recommend this game to anyone, not even your worst enemy. Its like the just stuck the name FLATOUT 3 on a piece of crap and tried to sell it. You have a better chance at winning the lottery TWICE than enjoying this game for more than 30 mins!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ALL FLATOUT FANS BEWARE!!! This game is a horrible addition to the Flatout series. That is why I gave it a negative reveiw. It feels nothing like the originals.

Now on another note as a racing game it isnt the worst (still isnt that great). It is okay for people who have never touched Flatout if they can get it cheap. I highly recomend getting the complete pack mainly for the other games.

Overall I do not recomend this game.

I think this game keeps crashing because it is my computer looking out for my best interests. Because when this game works, it is the equivalent of self-inflicted pain. Thankfully it came as a package deal with FO1 and FO2 so it wasn't a total loss.

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.

By far the worst game and greatest missuse of a game series name ever. Don't buy, in fact: run away, fast.

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.

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.

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.

Take Flatout 1, add a little flatout 2 and then smash it together like a toddler with cake, throw it at the wall, eat it, digest it, vomit it back up, scrape it up and hey presto flatout 3
