Whats better than laughing your a** off at the fact that you are forcibly sending your driver crashing through the windshield at un-human speeds just to enjoy a nice game of basketball...or baseball...or bowling...or football...or soccer... AS a matter of fact, this game goes beyond sports. You'll go from using the helpless body to play a keen game of poker, to sending him soaring through RINGS OF FIRE!!! Oh yeah, the game has actual races too for all you scallywags who cant handle the sheer awesomeness this game has to offer. WILL ALWAYS BE A CLASSIC! 10/10

Very likely the worst racing game ever made. There is absolutely no reward for driving well, luck plays a big role in every race, and the "catch-up mechanics" that the game uses are severely overdone - when you're in the lead, cars behind you get 20% faster, and when you're behind a few cars, they slow down like crazy and sometimes even crash before the finish line in an obvious attempt to let you win - which means there's no reward for driving accurate tight lines, and you only win races by *not crashing*, even if you drive like ♥♥♥♥.

And there are wayyyyy too few tracks repeating again and again and again throughout the game, making it extremely grind-y and boring.

The only reason this game has so many positive reviews is because it's being bought by nostalgic fanboys who've never played good racing games - NFS MW was released in the same year and is a masterpiece with at least 100 times the content of this ♥♥♥♥ game.

Other game modes are sort of fun but not fun enough (or long enough) to recommend this game. Redeemed to some extent by these and by the pretty awesome music.

One of the best games of my childhood XD

A racing game which doesn't always focus on racing but destroying stuffs! And funny AI!

I've spent hundreds of hours to destroy and upgrade the racecars and still be amazed by the physics law of the game. Highly recommended.

The funniest racing game i have ever played. The music is fantastic, even though i don't ussualy listen to rock. And the graphics are still pretty okay for a 10 year old game. I have completed this game at least five times now.

If FlatOut 2 proves anything it's that there's room for more than one type of racer that strongly encourages wreckage at every twist and turn, and it's refreshing to see that despite EA's undeniable might smaller developers are willing to have a go at competing, often showing them a thing or two about game design in the process.

One of the best racing games even today. First time I was paying it I was about 12-13 y.o. and I f*cking loved this game. It has great soundtrack, good graphics and bots that actually can compete with you. Maybe the graphics are that great compared to the games that we see today, but they're good enough. One of the best soundtracks in games. Bots can really compete with you and you probably won't be always on the first place.

Very fun racing game! I used to have this years ago on my PS2, but I don't play that anymore. I finally decided to get it for my computer, and it's just like I remember: plenty of crashing and destruction!

It's better than FlatOut 1 in the fact that there are better/more cars to choose from, and the same with tracks, but not with free roam. In the first FlatOut, you were able to go backwards on tracks and drive around the area. You sadly cannot on this game, but the racing is still fun nonetheless.

As for the demolition derbies, they are also plenty of fun. It's nice when a game isn't too easy, so I do like the fact that there is a contact timer of about 44 seconds, meaning you have to smash into someone at some point. The AI is also certainly smarter than the first FlatOut, thus adding to the difficulty of derbies and races. It only has 3 more derby arenas than the first one, for a total of 6, so there certainly could have been a few more arenas.

Lastly, you can't forget the minigames! There are oddities such as Royal Flush, Baseball, Bowling, and a few others where you have to fling yourself out of the car. These are pretty entertaining, especially with friends. It can get slightly monotonous by yourself though.

All in all, this is still lots of fun for a game made in 2006!

This game is flatout the best crash'em up racing game of all time and still is period. The best part is now it will run at best possible settings on even the most modest of computers.


Don't get Flatout3!!! It is not made by the same people and it sucks.

Because finishing a race with the car still in one piece is too mainstream.

This game is sequel for original FlatOut, and this game is one god damn good example how to make sequel.
FlatOut was awesome or should i say "perfect" arcade racing game. Though, its from 2004 and still, its kickass game with good driving response system, good and challenging AI, awesome tracks, derby bowls and stunt tracks.
FlatOut 2 have all these same things, but it is made thousand times better!
There is three car classes: Derby class, race class and street class.

Derby cars are cheap and durable and meant for the first class of FlatOut racing. They can take a beating and deliver a powerful punch, but arent as fast as the rest of cars.

Race cars are powerful and they are from competitive price range offer the 'best bang for buck' in the though in second class.

Street cars are tuned up for the most competitive tier of FlatOut racing. Fastest of their kind, but a little less durable.

In total there is 34 cars in game.

Game race tracks are great. you can choose from many different enviroments to race and they are: Forest, Field, Desert, Canal, City and Race. In total there is 30 race tracks in game. There is also 9 special track events in game.

Stunt tracks are also fun to play. There is 12 different stunts to do and they are: High Jump, Bowling, Ski Jump, Curling, Stone-Skipping, Ring Of Fire, Field Goal, Royal Flush, Basketball, Darts, Baseball and Soccer.

Derby bowls is one of the best things in this game. Its all about earning wrecking points by dealing damage, destroying cars and ultimately surviving the challenge.

The ragdoll physics in the sequel have been greatly updated. During the race, the driver may be thrown out of the car if slammed into a wall at a high speed.

AI in this game is fine. You compete with seven bots in race at same time. They are challenging and fun, but they can be sometimes really cocky.

Soundtrack is awesome in this game, it contains rock and metal music from Nickelback, Megadeath, Papa Roach, Mötley crue and many more...

I dont know any bad sides on this game. Well, if you choose male character it looks like Paul Walker and it makes me sad sometimes to see it. But i dont think its bad thing, its just opinion.

Im forcing you to buy this game because its so awesome and its definitely worth of few bucks. Love this legendary game!

Sorry for my bad english!

10/10
