As good as when it was released. Just make sure to grab the widescreen fix (google it). Otherwise the game looks like garbage an WS monitors. It's a bit short, and there are newer ones, so I would only grab this during a sale, which reduces the price to less than 2 euros anyway. Crash away.

Well, it's a racing game, so there's not much to say, but it's one of my favorite racing games. The graphic is oldschool, but looks pretty cool. 10/10 would fly out of front windshield again. It looks like I haven't play much, but I usually play it, when my internet's off, so it doesn't count the hours.

Critic:
This game is good but the turning system is not what I expected. In FlatOut 2 the turning system is cool, but this one is not because it turns very fast for me. The game is kinda old yes but it's good for his kind. The races are very good.

Rating - 57/100

Conclusion:
For my opinion the game is cool but the turning system is just bad, but I'm gonna recommend the game to you guys because I gave a good rating.

A decent arcade racing game, fun and has great music and quite good graphics. It's also AWESOME for drunk parties (players playing on the same computer, however, not split-screen, but take turns, it's not a racing mode but something much better!). I recommend it for everyone who enjoys arcade racing games, and to everyone who just wants a game to play during parties. It's actually the most fun single-computer multiplayer game I have ever played. Get it if you have any friends, get it if you don't.

This game even though it is a DIRECT port off of the PS2 (meaning nothing has changed except the controls. You can't even use the letters on your keyboard to type your name for a save file! You must move the cursor over to each letter), is still an amazing game for as long as it's been out. I remember buying it on the PS2 thinking it was just going to be another lame racing game, and was VERY wrong! It mixes difficulty with strategy to make the game fun (if you like a challenge like me), it has soft-body physics (when you crash into something your car bends to meet the damage unlike Need For Speed or Gran Turismo), and you can play Olympic games with your car! There is a long jump, high jump, curling, bowling, skiball, and even darts! You play these games by driving your car and ejecting yourself out of your windshield causing yourself to do awesome stuff! The question I'm asking myself is, who WOULDN'T buy this for $7? I personally say it should be worth at least $10 or $15 for all the original stuff and work the creators put into this... It's seriously underpriced in my book. So what are you waiting for? There's a demo, try it!

It's FlatOut 2 if it had snow and was less polished, except for the Port and Polish upgrade.
7/11: It's alright.

PS2 nostalgia aside, this is a great game, and it has aged amazingly.
For a 10+ year old game, the graphics still look great, and it handles well.
It can go at any resolution 1920x1080 and below, with lots of options.
I'm really surprised at how well this game holds up.

This is definitely one of my favorite racing games of all time, simply just for how close it brought my brother and I to passing out just from laughter alone back when we were still in school. Seeing it now brings back plenty of memories!

It plays pretty smoothly, the soundtrack is just as rockin' as I remember, watching someone fly through their windshield and crash into your car still has that special charm even after so many years, but, above all, nothing beats driving your twisted metal wreck across the finish line at the end of a race and STILL take first place~

Man, good times with a good game

Ah yes, FlatOut, A game I fondly remember from my childhood, back on the PS2.

This game is actually pretty fun, the soundtrack is great, the cars are nice, the racing is challenging and fast, all the cars look pretty great and each have their own characteristics to the way they drive and perform. Theres also a good amount of added gamemodes, like Destruction derby, highjump, bowling, and the added derply like tracks, like the oval and Figure 8 tracks.

Pros:


Not demanding, runs well.

Graphics still hold up even today, and look pretty good for their time.

Great soundtrack overall, aside from maybe 1 or 2 songs that are just "Eh.."

Driving feels crisp and responsive, though some of the bronse class cars can feel a bit floaty

Great sense of speed.

Multiple gamemodes, all of which are pretty fun and entertaining

Entire tracks are all fully modeled and explorable with destructable bits included, a feature sadly removed from Flatout 2.


Cons:


A minor flaw-,Soundracks repeat during racing, and the playlist only changed to another song if you reastart the event or go to another one.

Some objects are badly placed on tracks, like excavators,trucks,tractors ect all being placed in bad areas, wich can cause unneeded or undeserved wrecks, it also makes it harder to get a good driving line through certain corners. Sometimes even the tinest of objects like cones, can cause huge wrecks too.

(Continued) I was in a gold class race, second to last lap on Fairgrass Challenge, when i ran over a cone on a turn. This cone caused my car to roll, then cartwheel 16 times, so farr off the track tthat I smacked the semi-invisible wall marking the end of the map, flew out of my car, and had to restart the race. A Tiny cone, was enough to ruin a whole race for me, stuff like this is very frustrating, but, minor.

Some of the Shortcuts on certain tracks are totally useless, and generally will result in a wreck, or making you take longer to do a lap.



Overall though, its a whole lot of fun, and pretty Solid, woth the cheap asking price in my opinion.

Had this game on the PS2 back in the day. Exactly as I remember it. It's a lot of fun and can be stressful at time but it's not a perfect game, which makes it great. The Bonus modes and the Time Trials keep me wanting to play more. There's even Multiplayer!

I wasn't into racing games.
I never liked them.
Someday, a long long time ago, in a cold winter day, I decided to buy this game (1,19€). A few months earlier, I haggled with a friend because of Burnout; I was hating racing games. I bought it just to complete my library. However, I tried it aaaaaaaaand ...... guess what ...... loved it. It's the only racing game i ever liked.
  • If you don't manage to win the race, you can f♥♥♥ it and just explore the out-road map: there is a lot of it.
  • If you don't manage to win the race, you can f♥♥♥ it and just smash all the things you see: you'll get the same amount of money (if you smash enough things, of course).
  • The trees are ∞∞∞∞∞ stronger than the:
    • bulldozers
    • cranes
    • excavators
    • telegraph poles
    • pretty much everything
  • No matter how hard you try, you can't destroy your car. Even if it is burning, you have the same yield as the car you start the game with.
  • Never trust the ramps (especially the wooden ramps). They will bring you only pain and anger.
  • Very good songs.
It's a great game, BUY it.

If you enjoy Flatout 2, or UC, and want to see its roots, this game is a good buy. Not as crazy as F2/UC but still just as fun.

Fun racing and the ragtoll bonus makes this game one of the greatest racing games. I always loved it more than the later versions cause it seemed to have better physics, cars tend to act like they should.

One time if i was racing against my friends... o my this game was once our LAN's most played game;
i accidentally (think i hit something) shot my driver out of my car and the ragdoll flew against my friends car.
That incident just went crazy and triggered my friends ragdoll to fly out of his car after was on contact with my ragtoll :D

That's just one story of many cool things what may happen in this game.
Total recommendation from me.
