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.

FlatOut 2 came out just 2 years after its predecessor and was released in June 2006. That would make it around the time when I actually first played the game with my friends. Man, the game was good. Recently I have decided to try it out again, and to my surprise the game still rocks!

FlatOut 2 is by far the best racing game of it's kind that I have played. Long time has passed since the release, but everything about the game still seems really good from graphics to gameplay. Unfortunately there's no online but LAN via other software is possible. Do not fret though, single player is extremely fun. The AI is scripted very well. By the end of 2-3 cups you will understand how every individual AI drives. They don't always want to win now, some of them want to crash others players cars. It does not mean that it will always be you though. So expect some random stuff happen to you during the game. Never under estimate the opponent.

The soundtrack just blew my mind. I do like the type of music that this game has, but to think that I know almost all of the songs in the game just makes it so much better. This game has lots of big names like Rob Zombie, Wolfmother and .... Nickleback. But what's more important is that the car engine sound like a boss, the noise is so sexy, sometimes I just lower the music volume.

It been almost 9 years now, but the graphics will not hurt your eye, in fact this game probably eclipsed a ton of racing games which came out around the same time. Car details are very good, both brand new and half destroyed. The maps look just awesome, textures still look good to this day. Human ragdolls are a bit on the downside again, but you do not tend to fly out as often anymore. Overall, I am extremely happy about the graphics and how they are still so good even eight years after.

What else is important about the racing game for PC players, a game that was also realsead on consoles? The answer is controls. Finally, I played a game, where you can easily steer just by using your arrows on the keyboard. Game is very playable without a joystick. It also feels that the developers made it easier to control cars in the first place.

By now your thinking that there must be something bad about the game. Well, I am going to tell you that there are non big things that will off put you. There are minor things about interacting with physical objects, but that's about it guys, this game is almost perfect!
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=351137260
Replayabilty is massive, once you discover the LAN.
To conclude, this game deserves the price. If there's no sale then just buy it. You will not regret it. The game is so good, you will end up driving at least for the next 5 hours before taking a break.

Flatout 2, more adrenaline fueled arcade demolition derby racing ... but with ragdoll physics. You crash and the driver flies uncontrollably through the windshield. Arcade mini-games have you trying to hit targets with the expelled driver or reach higher jumps. Great tongue-in-cheek fun. Prepare to do crazy things to get style points and achievements!

This game. This game I played for quite a bit of my childhood, and it is still good today, even with FlatOut 3 & Next Car Game out there, I still find this the best. Also, the modding community behind this game is great, adding new maps & vehicles, making the game that much better. I would highly recommend buying this game, or even the complete package.

This is arguably the best in the flatout series, It is a bit less expansive then Flatout ultimate Carnage which adds a few extra cars in the starting grid, and drivers as well as a few new/re-worked tracks, but it is my favorite having put well over 200 hours on my PS2 version as well as another 30 on my steam version 11 online 19 in offline mode. If your looking for a destruction racing/derby game with killer Graphics/physics, tons of action, and a killer soundtrack then this is the game for you, when your at the starting line and you hear Wolfmother's "Dimension" start you know it's time to mash the gears and hammer down the accelerator and get wrecking! and remember rubbing is racing, slaming your opponents into the wall that's Flatout!

97/100.

Contorls amazing, after a little getting used too. It looks absoluley beautigul, for a game that game out in '06. The soundtrack is one of my favorite soundtracks of any game ever too.

If you look at the negative reviews you'll see they mostly come from the network being down. This game's singleplayer is challenging in all the right ways, and is my favorite part of the game. I got this for 2.49, i would still pay 30 dollars or more for this game. Just Buy it.

A decent arcade racer

cars handle like arcaed rally style.
An improvement over Flatout.
The sound is good.

This game is actually more fun than newer releases from other Companies.

This game was ported back when they had to finish a game instead of releasing an early access.

I played this on PS2, the port is pretty good.

One major flaw is the U.I. has to be navigated with the keyboard.
The graphics are now dated.I think it would be cool to see a remastered version with updated graphics and full controller support.

FlatOut 2
is in all a great game that fans of arcade fun takes a longer time, also thanks to the number of mini-games that it offers. The graphic can play basically nothing much to criticize, perhaps only occasional overlapping parts of the car (if you have a car with platform, here there passes a piece of the floor of the chassis, through the wings from time to time you see a piece of the wheel). The roaring sounds about as well as they should, hitting a metal pipe sounds metallic, into a tree and woody in all thunders powerful engines, which does not sound like the neighbor Fichtl. The musical accompaniment is composed of more than twenty stock from authors such as Papa Roach, Nickelback, Megadeth and Rob Zombie, and it certainly is not the item you off in the menu first. HW requirements are within the limits of endurance, which you can read in the table under review. If you do not desire for realistic simulation, but after a really fun racing title, I FlatOut 2 is recommended. At that price, half the English version, there's nothing better you can not get.

Enjoy Game CZ/SK/ENG etc.

Flatout 2 is easily my favorite racing game of all time. It focuses on fun and enjoyment rather than wasting time with realism. The physics are funny, the soundtrack is great (if you like semi-modern rock music), The damage engine is good, The graphics aren't too outdated, and best of all, the driving feels great, even on a mouse and keyboard. My one dislike is that the menus have no mouse navigation, which is the only thing that makes me realize that it's a PC port.

I highly reccomend this game to anyone, really. If you're a fan of silly physics, damage engines, and good racing, you will adore this game.
