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.

Firstly I want to start with the price I have bought it for and that was 1£, that's pretty amazing price for a game like this one. Now for the review. 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. There's an option to upgrade your vehicles and I usually miss that in racing games. Like in other games, you start at the bottom and you slowly get higher and higher. 10/10 would fly out of front windshield again.

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.

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

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.

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.
