Don't get decieved by a relatively low score on Metacritic, that's unfortunately a result of reviewers comparing FlatOut to Need For Speed (most popular racing game of mid-2000's). Although they belong to the same main genre, racing, they are completely different games with completely different perception of racing.

I played this game for the first time when it was released in 2005 but I was not able to get pass through the first stage of three as I was not that good in PC games back then. I grew up, saw this game on discount and I was determined to complete this after all those years and finally managed to complete the game in 15 hours.

During 15 hours, I completely lost my s**t, I leaned right or left on my chair while I was simply pressing left and right buttons on my cheap keyboard, I looked for a brake pedal under the desk, I felt like I won a real race after each race. This is probably one of the most underrated games of all times as it's gaming mechanics, AI, graphics are better than current era of arcade racing games.

FlatOut reminded me why I loved racing genre. 10/10.

This game is like a old version of Next Car Game. The AI crash on their own and the racing is close and fast. If you want Next Car Game but you have a simple computer then this is a great game to choose and enjoy. It's defiantly one of the classic PS2 games that I love to play again and again.

Nearly 10 Years since first release, and it hasn't aged a day. Still very good fun, whether you choose to race, crash or just generally mess around. One of my all time favourite driving/racing games. Shame that there is no multiplayer available anymore.

Maybe one of the most under-rated racing game series. This game is made by Finnish studio called "Bugbear Entertaiment" known as of Flatout Series (expect Flatout 3 chaos & destruction which was awful game made by some studio from Czech) Rally Trophy, Ridge Racer Unbounded and future release "Next Car Game" what is upcoming game to new generation consoles and pc (people voted from greenlight for steam). Even Though game is from 2005 this game have "heavenly" physics motor and driving response system when it is considered its racing game era back to that time. Simple & very challenging single player career. 8 player AI-races, 16 different cars what you can customise, 48 different tracks including Demolition derbys, Bonus and stunt tracks and all tracks contains hundreds of destructible pieces. Multiplayer is closed but still working with downloadable patch from net. Sorry for my bad english!

LEGENDARY GAME 10/10
