"the game is immensely fun to play even without lots of features and options, because it offers quick and polished racing, Destruction Derby style" - CPUGamer.com
"unique physics-flavored racing and fun dirt track action" - AtomicGamer.com
FlatOut is a good old, action-packed, destruction filled racing game. Realistic graphics toss you mercilessly into the action, and a variety of tracks and characters set it apart from other racing games. Smash into obstacles along the track and leave piles of flaming debris behind. Head into the pit to fine-tune your car and gain an edge over other racers. FlatOut is gritty, rusty racing at its metal-grinding best!
Destruction Derby again!AkiMatti | April 15, 2014 | See all AkiMatti's reviews »
Gentlemen, start you engines and get out of here, because this game is not for you! This game is for rude, tough and dirty drivers that are willing to do anything it takes to win the race!
Plates of metal will fly, tires will scream and shacks will shatter as you circle around the race tracks wreaking havoc along your way. A little rubber banding shatters the game a bit, but not too much. Just enough to make it more challenging. And challenge you will get!
But along with it, lots of fun. There are many bonus game modes that are often relying on sending the driver flying towards different goals. You will need a certain mindset to enjoy a laugh out of them, but if you do, it is great.
Recommended to share the experience with a friend.

The most important thing on this game is definitely the destruction model of the cars and enviroment. You'll see that you just love to smash everything and everyone. Car control is somewhere between simulation and arcade, but its perfectly balanced and you will quickly get used to it. You can also customize your car and improve it. And if you are bored of racing you can try some funny ingame activities.

This game is about destroying everything basicly. The graphics are made well, the sound also is really good. The crashes are made well. You'll enjoy this game for a few hours. Worth picking up at full price
Fun, but definitely not a simDaiMonPaul | June 17, 2013 | See all DaiMonPaul's reviews »
I LOVE the game modes which make you find the optimum way to eject your driver from the car, measuring how far or high he flies. These minigames never fail to give me a chuckle, and they're truly unique in the world of racing games. As for the actual racing? Eh, it's ok. You can damage almost anything in the world, which is cool, but the cars don't really drive in a realistic way. This is a pure arcade title, not a sim. It's still entertaining, and there are plenty of race types and courses that will give you lots of value for your money. The graphics are dated, but they still look decent. Get this if you're looking for a fairly unique arcade racer, but if you want anything with more sim-like elements, you might want to look in a different direction.
One of the Greatest Derby Gamesthegaminglyfe | June 16, 2013 | See all thegaminglyfe's reviews »
When you mention racing games with derby elements in them, people think about Flatout most of the time. That's because Flatout is an amazing game! It set the standard for all derby racing games on it's release. The races are fun to do and action packed, there are lots of vehicles with their own advantages and disadvantages. The controls are easy to understand but take a while to really get the hang of and master. The ragdoll mini games are super fun launching your character out of your character. The attention to detail is incredible, you will see pieces of glass and parts from your car fly around everywhere like a real crash. Flatout has aged quite well and the graphics still look nice. Highly recommended to any arcade racing fan.
