About

The second part of the FlatOut series offers a variety of racing options. This part of the series has street racing as its main theme.

Gameplay

The game includes 34 cars divided by three types: "derby", "race" and "street". As the player's career progresses, he or she can unlock more cars that include everything up to school buses. Each car has its unique characteristics and may require different driving styles. The player can also upgrade his or her existing vehicle instead of purchasing a new one.

In the career mode, the game includes more than 30 tracks with varied environment and length. The levels often allow more than one route to choose from at any lap. AI-controlled opponents have personalities that define their driving style. Besides the races, there are mini-games that offer the player to perform stunts.

Differences from the original game

Compared to the first part, the sequel doubled on the number of available cars, tracks, and mini-games. FlatOut 2 also introduced longer tournaments and online multiplayer. There's also an improved physics engine. The tire grip was enhanced, making the controls more sturdy, and the cars are now less likely to bounce off the track.

There's also a ragdoll physics model that defines the movements of the driver within the car. After crashes and during the stunt mini-games the driver may even fly out of the car. In some mini-games, the goal is to throw the driver's body as far as possible or to land it on a designated target.

FlatOut 2 reviews and comments

Flatout 2 is THE only true Demolition Racing Game! The Graphics are certainly no longer up To date, but when it comes to Fun in the game, no other Demolition Racer can give this one the Water (except perhaps the unofficial Successor Wreckfest/Next-Car-Game). Due to the various game modes and The most absurd Mini-games and Stunts, Flatout 2 is a Recommendation for anyone who wants to let it crash. Warning! Fingers away from Flatout 3! The Developer behind it only bought the name rights! Flatout 3 is Scrap, who wants to know why why should you just check out some Reviews on Youtube.

FlatOut is pure Childhood memories! I played it about a Year after Release for the first Time and was impressed by Graphics, Sound and Atmosphere. For €2.49 it was now in the Sale and I treated myself again. If you pay attention to the Age of the Game, the Price is appropriate. But I would also pay the full Price for what you get offered at any time. Pro:-numerous Vehicles of different Classes-different maps (E.g. Forest, Desert or City)-Extensive Career Mode for all Vehicle classes-party mode to play with Friends Contra:-outdated Graphics-XBox controller controls (with me) only that Vehicle, but not the Menu Conclusion: Definitely recommended! For anyone who is Fans of the Franchise or looking for action-packed Racing Games.

Hach yes, Flatout. Once it was down, I bought it for Nostalgia's sake. Actually just to own it easy ... Actually. I installed it, played it, played it even more And realised by the way that this Title is still as much fun as it was then. The Graphics are pleasant To watch despite the set age of the Game, the Challenges are funny and varied (sometimes try to let a Person rode over the Water like a Stone?), to drive the Routes from slightly to more demanding. There is no such thing as Story, nor does it need it. Because if we are honest, it's all about the One thing anyway! -Crashes! Whether in Multiplayer or against the Computer Opponents, one is happy when a Rempel Attack causes the enemy driver to fly out of his Vehicle. So you like to catch yourself that you deliberately do not drive a Curve clean and instead ignite the Turbo, only to drive the other one in the back especially violently ... Newer Titles certainly have more Detail and Possibilities to offer by now, though: Flatout is just Fun. Pure, light Entertainment and definitely worth every Penny! If you are looking for a Racing Game that you can play easily in between, then you can access! Awaken the Rowdy in you!
