    FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction brings a new dimension to high speed destruction racing.

    Feel the adrenaline pulse through your veins as you barrel through insane race tracks against monster trucks, race cars, off road vehicles and much more.

    FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction is demolition racing at its extreme. Real world physics with 9 different game modes, and over 47 different vehicles available. Players may choose to race, smash and destroy their opponents in a wide variety of online and offline options.

    Lay waste to farm houses, fences, and then wreak havoc in a Detroit suburb, race up the walls in giant waste disposal sewers. Let the chaos begin as you race through over 60 different tracks, narrowly avoiding wrecking balls, Double Decker buses and much more.

    Create as much destruction in the all new monster tuck mode.

    Choose from 20 different playable characters, select your weapon from the 47 available vehicles! Create as much Chaos & Destruction! In stuntman mode anarchy rules create havoc with some rag doll fun.

    FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction offers more vehicles, game modes and different ways to demolish your opponents before crossing the finish line.

    It's not the premise that works against Flatout 3 being a good game, it's the implementation. Terribly weak AI and amorphous car control distract from what could have been an enjoyable vehicular riot.

    Terrible physics, shoddy controls and unfair AI-Opponents bury the once great Flatout series under a pile of Chaos & Destruction.

    Flatout 3 is a total failure. There no career mode and the races are chaotic and unplayable. Don't play it.

    Not surprising. There isn't much to play or buy here. Between its obsolete visuals, dead vehicle dynamics, atrocious AI, and deserted multiplayer lobbies, Flatout 3 is a decided waste of time and space.

    Some games are so bad they're good (for a laugh, at least). FlatOut 3 is just plain bad. [March 2012, p.102]

    This game is not just boring – it's disgusting to play.

There are too much realistic racing games these days. Racing, Destruction Derby, Stunts and Monster Trucks missions in one game for a small price, great!. No regrets at all I bought this game. I recommend this game if you like over the top racing games. Expand

The developers added much contect like race cars and monster trucks, and I really like it that you can also for example race in a normal track with a monstertruck. (or with normal cars in monstertruck tracks, which really makes them easy :) One of the best things is that the developers still patch the game, it already has 4 patches by now which fixed most problems and they listen to the community, for example they added more modes like classic mode that makes the cars slower like in flatout 2. Of course there are also things I don't like. One of them is that there is no career mode, instead you have challenge mode. Unfortunately you can't upgrade cars in this mode and I finished the 50 challenges way faster then flatout 2's career mode. Another thing that really sucks is that there is no one in multiplayer.. I really hope that after 4 patches more people will enjoy the game so that I can do multiplayer matches. Oh and I think the opponents are too easy most of the time, especially in speed mode. Expand

I repeat -- DO NOT BUY. Expand

    I didn't expect that FlatOut will continue after Empire Interactive bankruptcy, but I knew that all Team6 suck immensely long before theyI didn't expect that FlatOut will continue after Empire Interactive bankruptcy, but I knew that all Team6 suck immensely long before they ruined my favourite game. That was enough to make me scared of FlatOut burial, and I was totally right. This... "game" not only shows true identity of Team6, it also breaks hearts of gamers very hardly. Entire game is like swiss cheese; full of holes. The only thing that game can be praised for is holding a Guinness record for most blur in computer games history. Team6 staff keep defending themselves from getting raped by angered gamers armed with barbed wires, but resistance is futile and these morons will definitely pay sooner or later. Strategy First did noting wrong here; it was set up by Team6. Expand

AND they got rid of the career mode!! i have never seen a worse sequel to any game in over 30 years of gaming! team 6 should all be rounded up and shot! Expand

    I waste no time writing a review about this disastrous piece of junk nor will I even consider propperly rating this game. This game is a shame and a total humiliation for the FlatOut series.

    Being a fan of the flatout series I have been waiting for a very long time for a new flatout game.
    Well I hafto say to any fans of the game,
    Being a fan of the flatout series I have been waiting for a very long time for a new flatout game.
    Well I hafto say to any fans of the game, this isnt a Flatout game, AT ALL... Flatout was all about the Physics of the car, and the destructibility of the vehicles, and neither of thoes things exist in this game. its a HUGE joke of a game, With all the better games on the market dont waist your time on this crap, if you liked the other flatouts and want to play something like it try the DIRT series.
