  1. Overall, it's a very entertaining low-tech drive and demolish racer, but with one caveat for veterans of the series - they'll have seen much of the game already in FlatOut 2.

    Are improved graphics, greater amount of destructible objects and a couple of new cars sufficient reason to buy the same game again? If you played the previous Flatout game you should be warned that Flatout: Ultimate Carnage is slightly improved Flatout 2 with the same mistakes under a polished hood. [Sept 2008]
  3. FlatOut: Utlimate Carnage is the perfect game for you if you want to race without worrying about the height of your dampers or the alignment of your seat. Wrecking other cars and destroying most of the scenery gives undeniable pleasure. However, if you already played FlatOut 2 there won't be much of a surprise. And that's why the game doesn't get a top score.
  4. FlatOut 2 has been given a light dusting over by Bugbear and released in a pretty new frock. It's hard to decide between rage and disappointment.

    A new version of my favourite LAN game!.....WITHOUT LAN capability. What the!?! Seriously, who's gonna buy this game when all it has overA new version of my favourite LAN game!.....WITHOUT LAN capability. What the!?! Seriously, who's gonna buy this game when all it has over Flatout 2 is new maps and better graphics (and physics?). Flatout 2 has LAN... and is half the price of UC at my local store. What a waste.

    New game-modes and improved visuals for the PC version don't make up for the loss of a LAN-play function. Flatout 2 is a favourite at New game-modes and improved visuals for the PC version don't make up for the loss of a LAN-play function. Flatout 2 is a favourite at out LAN parties, but UC only supports online multiplay via Windows LIVE - making this an inferior product to its predecessor. Full Review »

    FlatOut 2 on the PC is my favorite racing game because it looks hot and is loads of fun. So naturally, Ultimate Carnage looks to be a great FlatOut 2 on the PC is my favorite racing game because it looks hot and is loads of fun. So naturally, Ultimate Carnage looks to be a great extension of 2 (however minor in gameplay, but better in technology). Plus 12 players over 8 should be a welcome addition to the fun. I just hope the price is right. Full Review »
