    The awful FlatOut made us pine for ZX Spectrum paddles - its controls are that painfully imprecise. [Feb 2011, p.69]

I bought the Wii in 2008 and this is the first nice racing game I played on the Wii. Only the car basher mode sucks big time. The idea is good,..but it.'s not fun at all. The Stunts mode is awesome, Even on the Wii, Expand

I hope a sequel of Flatout Wii will be released soon on the Wii, but then with more Stunt levels. There are not much good racing games on the Wii. So come on Zoo and Team6, make me happy again!

    Best-looking Wii racing game!
    It's amazing how Team6 were able to make wii racing game with best graphics!
    What is even more - it can be played in 2-player splitscreen.
    Can't say it is ideal - I would add some freeplay and racing in post-apocalyptic cities (NY or LA)
    It's a shame new NFS for Wii costs twice as much and is nowhere good as this game.
    Let's hope EA will trust next NFS on WII to Team6:)

I thought this would be a Burnout clone or something, I was wrong. The cars, if at a relatively high speed, lose all sense of control. There isn't much to the game: no real story, limited track/cars and a very simple game. I would personally stay away unless its dirt cheap. Expand

    FlatOut for Wii looks and feels nothing like a FlatOut game (for those who have tried FlatOut on other platforms). If you've tried the PCFlatOut for Wii looks and feels nothing like a FlatOut game (for those who have tried FlatOut on other platforms). If you've tried the PC versions, there is absolutely no resemblance here. The handling and the blurry low-detail graphics all combine to give the user an underwhelming experience. Bugbear Entertainment (the original developers of FlatOut) were not employed to create FlatOut for the Wii. The game lives on here in name only. This is a travesty after all the excellence Bugbear have built up around the brand. FlatOut for Wii doesn't even compare well to 12+ year-old games on older consoles like the Playstation 2 and Gamecube. Absolute rubbish. Best avoided. Expand

    This is among the worst examples of a racing game known to man.

    The reviewers who rank this highly must have vested interests, extremely limited racing experience, or are simply deaf and blind. I guess it's easily confused with the excellent FlatOut by Bugbear made for PC and other platforms. That can be the only reason people are voting 10. Note: this wasn't made by Bugbear.

    This Wii version of FlatOut is a blurry mess. It features terrible controls and snoozeworthy gameplay. To be fair, it is probably is the pinnacle of gaming to those recovering from mental trauma or those confusing this Wii release with the excellent PC & PS2 release of the same name. Otherwise, no sane and objective analysis could produce a 10 for this steaming pile.

    FlatOut on Wii makes the ideal gift for those looking to cut down on the amount of friends they have. I salute the genius developers with a zero.
