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. I do like the fact that there is a contact timer of about 44 seconds; it really adds to the gameplay. The AI is certainly smarter than the first FlatOut, so it's a challenge for sure sometimes.
Basically, for a game made in 2006, it's still lots of fun!
