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.

Pros.
- Epic 5.8 gb download.
- Array of game modes.
- Array of characters.
- Array of vehicles.
- Rag doll physics on fleek.

Cons.
- Epic 5.8 gb download.
- WTF game modes don't make sence.
- Crappy controls.

Decent game if you get it on sale and haven't played any of the other Flatouts.

The worst incarnation of this series; this game was not developed by the original dev team of Flatout 1, Flatout 2, and Flatout: Ultimate carnage.

While the previous titles sported a delicate balance of racing, wrecking, and arcade-like elements... this game throws it out the window and shares little in common with previous games aside from the genre of being a demolition-style racing game and it's title.

Visually the game looks worse than it's predecessor. The two are not even comparable; It looks more like a game I would have expected to play on the originally PlayStation or maybe an arcade.

Game-play-wise the cars have no real "life" to them, and again feel like something I would expect from an arcade game I pop $1 into. In previous iterations, cars felt like they had weight; you could slide beautifully around dirt corners, drift through tight turns, and could manipulate AI cars by using your force/speed/inertia. All that is gone in this game; even the most difficult looking turns are easily mastered by simply momentarily letting off the gas and simply hitting your left or right key; gone are the days of worrying about oversteer, understeer, or compensating for loss of traction. Even the ways cars bounce off each other seems more like you are in a pinball machine getting popped around by the bumpers --- you don't really have much control or force over other AI vehicles so you are at their mercy if their "line" gets in your way.

Also gone are the days of customizing your car tuning. Probably one of my favorite parts of any racing sim or, for lack of a better term, any "car game" in general is the ability to swap X for Y and make your car, YOUR car. All the white knuckle driving done to take 1st pays off for that next much wanted upgrade. Not here ---- you pick from the standard layout of cars, and then you can pick from 2 or 3 different pre-defined "tuning" settings which invariably just give you more speed for less durability or vice versa. But in reality, it doesn't matter because EVERY CAR FEELS EXACTLY THE SAME.

I'm not usually too harsh but I cannot recommend this game to anyone. If you are looking for an arcade-style racing game I am sure there are many alternatives that would be better. If you are looking at this game because you've player previous FlatOut games, then skip it entirely as it is not the same development team and therefore not the same game at all. I've just installed "DiRT Showdown" and while it seems a little different than flatout, it has many of the same feelings and elements and a bit more up-to-date graphics. I have also heard that the original developers of FlatOut have been developing/developed already a new demolition racing game which I will be eager to check out, so maybe do a quick google if you would be interested in that!

you would think that since this is one of the most hated products on steam that they would get the hint that it sucks and drops the price especialy since it came out in 2011 and it is 2016 and in that time no one has ever liked it.

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
