This sequel delivers much more that the original FlatOut and is just plain fun in both single player and online play...
One of the greatest add-ons on FlatOut 2 is the online multiplayer mode with derby, racing, rally and other special modes. You can now rumble against up to 7 more players in any of the previously mentioned modes. Unlike the last release, the game rooms are now filled with players so competition isn't hard to find.
The single player mode delivers action packed hours of fun with a career mode that contains 8 rally cups, 9 race cups and 10 street race cups as well as 27 special events such as mini games, destruction derbies and much, much more... The ai has much improved with different characteristics ranging from aggressive, to destructive, to calm and reckless. The number of cars has as well increased from 14 to more than 30 with 4 types of cars (rally, race ,street and special).
The feel of the road with a racing wheel with force feedback feels great and is actually the most realistic feel from all the racing games I've played. The sound s as realistic as you can get to in a game and the soundtrack is simply great (Check the end for a full list of tunes). You may think that it can't get any better, but it does. The cars have now 40 deformable parts and the tracks have more than 5,000 fully destructible objects each. Bugbear really worked their @**es off for this release and added a brand new graphics engine with near to photo realistic engine that runs great even on older graphic cards. The last but not least feature contributing to the realistics of the game is the powerful physics driven by the Havok engine that affect each and every single object, explosion, car, rag doll, you name it!
If you're looking for a great racing game, this is it! It's the most thrilling race game I've ever played and it's available for all the main current consoles and pc. Forty dollars is well worth spending on this game. If you're really not sure of you want this game, just rent it and I guarantee you'll change mind and buy it cus it simply RULEZ!
