FlatOut Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: For slightly less than premium coin, you can own a great compliment to the other extreme-style racers on the market. It’s hard to compare FlatOut to the other extreme games on the market, but that’s a good thing since it feels fresh in many aspects. I like the innovation that Bugbear flexes in FlatOut , which gives me hope for the future of racing games ( FlatOut 2 ) from this developer in the future.

  • Excerpt: Racing games are looking up. Recently, we’ve had the likes of Burnout 3: Takedown seriously dominating our playtime, titles like Rockstar’s Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition , Eidos’ Crash ‘n’ Burn and EA’s Need For Speed Underground 2 are chock-full of potential and to top it all off, a bit of a surprise has been thrown our way by Empire Interactive in the form of FlatOut .

  • Excerpt: Empire Interactive spoils the driving genre-loving gaming public for the second time in two weeks in the autumn of 2004: first there was the surprisingly playable and 'cheaper and better than OutRun2' offering that was Ford Racing 3; now we get a real treat with FlatOut, courtesy of Finland's BugBear Entertainment. If this game had any kind of aroma, burning oil would have to be at the top of the list of possibilities.

  • Excerpt: FlatOut seems like a misnamed game to me. When I hear the words “flat out” I think of a car flying down a straightaway, pedal to the metal, red-lined RPMs,… in another word, “speed”. FlatOut is not a game that will send you screaming down the track – well, not in your car at least, but more on that later.

  • Excerpt: FlatOut is one of the craziest racing games to find its way to the Xbox Bugbear Entertainment has brought a fun and entertaining racing game that appeals to a wide variety of gamers. This game brings demolition derby style racing, combined with rally inspired tracks and rag doll physics. You might think you have read wrong, why would there be rag doll physics in a racing game, but they are there for good reason which, will be explained later on.

  • Excerpt: A rip-roaring mix of circuitous rally racing and smash-up derby carnage, FlatOut steers just clear of typical by removing the seatbelts from each car and adding a "ragdoll physics" element more commonly seen in fighting and shooting games.

  • Excerpt: This game has been getting alot of hype for a racing game not belonging to the Gran Turismo, or Project Gotham Racing series. What i thought was another 3rd party game, turned out to be 1st party worthy.

  • Excerpt: What I'm getting at is the fact that FlatOut has some very, very steep competition. Releasing a racing game at this point would be like releasing a stealth action game after Metal Gear Solid 3 or Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. You'd better bring something excellent to the table or risk being panned. FlatOut has hit the market at what could easily be called the worst possible time.

  • Excerpt: FlatOut has hit the market at what could easily be called the worst possible time. We've just relatively recently had Need for Speed Underground 2, Gran Turismo 4, Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition, and Forza Motorsport, not to mention the die-hard classics like Burnout 3: Takedown. What I'm getting at is the fact that FlatOut has some very, very steep competition.
