Hi Octane motorised anarchy - maximum fun, maximum chaos, and all in eyeball searing high definition! FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage is PC's most extreme destruction racer. With three distinct carnage-filled game styles, an integrated championship racing career mode and intense in-your-face destructive action, FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage is the gaming world's most smash-tastic driving game to date!

Arcade destruction racing at its best: FlatOut's peerless real-world physics engine combines vehicles built from 40 plus deformable parts with over 8000 destructible objects per track.

Huge number of race styles to suit your mood and preferences: Career racing. Compete in progressively tougher championship wrecking your way through 3 classes to become the ultimate FlatOut champion. Arcade racing. Deathmatch Destruction Derbies, time trials and crash filled challenges.

    Highly competitive FlatOut racing action: Compete against 11 other drivers in single-player modes from a choice of 48 cars on 39 tracks in 6 different environments. Wreck your way across parched deserts, massive storm drains and narrow city streets.

      Fully supports Games For Windows live: Up to 8-player simultaneous Live play including Races, Derbies and Stunts, plus the all-new Deathmatch Derbies and the exclusive Head-On race mode.

        Hilarious Ragdoll characters catapulted in-race and in 12 crunching minigames: The Ragdoll is a unique to FlatOut - which is catapulted through your windscreen or, even better, the other driver's windscreen as they are wrecked out of the race. Additionally there are the 12 Ragdoll events which take some beating for their sheer body abuse: e.g. High Jump, Stone Skipping, Ring of Fire, Field Goal and Free Kick.

          Cars look stunning: See every scratch and dent all with real-time environment mapping to create a grittier realistic appearance. FlatOut features dynamic shadow maps for every 3D object on the track including buildings, scenery and cars making all movement in Ultimate Carnage exceptionally smooth. Improved particle effects including dust, dirt, smoke, water splashes and bouncing sparks.

           A tweaked version of the previous games

          | | See all Unzen74's reviews (14)

          Although I gave this game 4 stars - I would say that it earned that if you were completely new to the Flatout series. If you've got one or more of the previous games, then I would probably rate the game as a 3 star overall.

          Essentially, Flatout Carnage is pretty much that. Out and out carnage on chaotic racing tracks of fictional cars that looked glued and bolted together. The damage model is impressive. Doors hang off, bonnets fly into the air, every body panel appears to bend and twist under the impacts from other cars and objects.

          As a game, it is the complete opposite of the likes of GTR Evolution - and personally, I think it should be applauded for that. Whereas GTR requires plenty of skill, concentration and commitment in order to do well, Flatout Carnage is great for when you've got 30 minutes to kill and just fancy a quick racing blast.

          That's not to say that Flatout Carnage is without some driver input. Power slides are key to smooth progress through corners and if you get tapped by the opposition on a rear corner - be prepaired for some frentic opposite lock action.

          Graphically, every game in the Flatout series looks very pretty indeed - and Carnage is no exception. Having played the previous games, it's obvious to me where the developers have progressed with the graphics - in particular with the water and splash effects. Because of this, you do need a decent(ish) PC to run it well and as the other reviewer said, laptops are probably a no-go. For reference, my graphics card currently is an ATi 4870 and it plays perfectly smoothly on that.

          As another techincal 'fix' - I had horrendous noise clips and stuttering at random times on the previous games with my SoundBlaster X-Fi card. These issues seem to have been addressed now and the sound is flawless. Which is good news as the range of music tracks that accompany the game are really good indeed.

          Other changes include a bigger race pack to battle against - 12 cars now instead of the previous 6 or 8, if I remember correctly. And there's also the Carnage mode which centres around you causing as much damage to other cars and the environment before the clock runs out.

          As I said initially, if you're new to Flatout - then this is a great, fun and worthwhile blast of driving mayhem. If you're familiar to the Flatout games, then I'd only recommend it if you were a fan and simply want to buy the latest version.

          All in all - a good distraction for a driving fix. If your head is hurting from GTR Evolution.

           good effort

          The main good point about this game is the amount of different types of races and different features. However this doesnt make it a good game as it becomes quite boring after a while. The game is average, not bad but definetly not anything special

           Dont waste your money

          Flatout 2 was a good game, this is an extremely poor copy, and I do mean copy. The tracks are all the same as in F2 but the car handling is poor by comparison. Cars will pass without a bump over felled lamposts and the do a cartwheel after running over a rubbish bag, or possibly a dicarded match. At times the the steering wheel seems to be completly disconnected and turning into some corners you will find yourself going straight on even at low speeds, other times the car will turn on its own. Powerslides are good fun, but I would like the car to wait until I have hit the gas first.
          I have completed the game, it is possible to do, but I regret the time I have wasted on it. This game is ranked about as low as Juiced 2HIN. Definitely not for the real driving game enthusiast.

          With the experience of Flatout 2 i was very excited to purchase this game. When I installed it on my normally good enough laptop i found that none of the settings would allow the game to run satisfactorily on my laptop. I called Empire Interactive Customer Support and was basically told 'hard luck, just take a look on the game box and you will see it says "On-board/integrated graphics cards and laptops not supported". I should refer back to the retailer and complain to them for not advertising the issue'. As a result of that they were not interested in helping me. So please take a note from my book and save yourself the problem! Shame.

           Ridiculously Underrated!

          I played my way through the Flatout series as and when they were released and although I personally think Flatout 2 was the peak this game is essentially just Flatout 2...but with better graphics! I've recently been reminded of this great series as "Flatout 3" has recently been released, but wait! It's by a different developer and is absolutely nothing like the Flatout I know and love...in fact it's pretty bad. For a fiver you will not regret buying this, trust me!

          P.S. It's a relatively hard game which is a nice change to some of the easy mode crap that's out at the moment.
          Also, if you like this you should look at Split Second which is another hugely underrated game and is immense fun multiplayer with friends.
