Summary: Burnout was a franchise that convinced a lot of people that crashing cars and the carnage that followed could be a lot of fun. It was only a matter of time before another company would come along and think they could capitalize on that.
Summary: FlatOut is all about grand scale destruction racing. Fans of the console versions will be able to take the instant jump-in-and-race gameplay mayhem with them wherever they go, including four-player wireless connectivity.
Excerpt: Destructive racing games have been popular since games like Destruction Derby on the original PlayStation. While Destruction Derby never managed to make it past its PlayStation glory days, we did end up with Burnout and Flatout.
Excerpt: After three console games in this series, here comes a handheld version specifically made for the PSP. FlatOut Head On is familiar to me and is basically FlatOut 2, but on the PSP instead. Three types of racing for the career mode exist: Derby, Race, and Street.
Excerpt: , most gamers had never heard of Bugbear Entertainment. The Finnish developer surprised just about everyone with a physics-heavy racer that did on- and off-road racing right, but added one very important extra: ragdoll physics for the drivers.
Excerpt: FlatOut is a mix of the extreme racing seen in the Burnout series combined with the crazy stunts that you would see in Jackass. It's different, and offers something for both the speed freaks and crash-n-burn junkies.
Pros: Looks just as good on the handheld screen as it did on consoles, from the big explosions to the weird physics of the driver being tossed around. It also has a fair amount of challenges, mixing both pure racing and pure destruction.
Cons: Some of the challenges seem a little repetitive and some seem near impossible at times.
