Don't even consider getting this junk

This game at its core is fundamentally broken. The physics engine is a complete mess and the driving mechanics are terrible. I wanted to like this but there is very little about this game that was done good. Even the loading bar is broken, yeah it has the most cars and all that but the cars don't work properly and when you crash all that happens is sparks fly off, where is the destruction. I don't care that you can break fences etc if I can't even break bits of my car like in the previous Flatout's, if a game from 2005 can why can't this. Luckily I got it in the Steam sale in the Flatout Collection so I didn't waste my money but I deleted pretty soon after playing it. This game is seriously a game you must avoid.

Had good potential but the bugs killed it

I'm a fan of racing car games, in my top five would be the original Flatout but it feels like they rushed Flatout 3 and it seems to suffer from performance issues. My PC isn't a beast but it is pretty darn powerful (Can play Battlefield 3 with ease) but Flatout 3 struggles. I really wish they had let BugBear develop the game as I fear Team6 killed it. Still, this could just be me, perhaps everyone else is having a blast with it and it is just something on my PC that is causing the issues. From what I could play it seemed like it would be fun. I know this isn't really a review but thought to let people know the potential issues with this game. Metacritic gave it 23/100 so unless on sale and a good price you might want to give this one a miss.

Destruction now

The name usually Flatout always be synonymous with destruction, and as if that were not enough the new edition is called Flatout 3: Chaos & Destruction. It is a game modest, simple, that most PC gamers will have no trouble running, but still Flatout 3: Chaos & Destruction can be a pleasant surprise. If you like destroying cars, cause accidents or roll over in spectacular fashion, then Flatout 3: Chaos & Destruction can be a good choice for you. Far from the headlines of the genre, this is one of those games that is worth buying.
