Lots of fun... when your not retrying the same race over and over and over...

User Rating: 7.8 | FlatOut 2 XBOX
Incorporating some intresting elements and the classic smash-um racing made famous by destruction derby, flat out 2 definatly has appeal to racing fans looking for a less serious approach to the genre then offered in PGR...

Despite the lackluster approach to racing, the game still requires some skill if you want to do more then make a few dents. Here is where the game starts to take a frustrating turn...

If you are the type of gamer that takes their motivation from the older generation and you need to have perfection before you can be satisified, you will be stuck retrying over and over and over again until you get lucky...

Lack of skill not withstanding the game lacks in a few key areas... graphics are weak for a new game, and control could use a little tweaking... although I applaud the use of contemporary music, it could use some more additions to the playlist, I found my self lisitening to the same music over and over again...

The physics engine makes for more frusturating, unexplainable loss of control moments then it does for spetacular crashes, and the engine noises truly burn the ears...

Rent this game before you buy, bash-um-up race fans will be thrilled, casual fans will be dissapointed...
