Flatout 2 Flatout: Ultimate Carnage (2007)

8/10

This is an Xbox 360 / Games for Windows Live version of Flatout 2 with improved smoke, dust and water effects, more stuff to drive into (cars and objects) but, thanks principally to now-pathetic blink-and-you’ll-miss-it driver ejection in crashes (think Guybrush Threepwood in the spitting competition) which needed to be hilariously over-the-top, it still doesn’t feature the endearingly insane feeling of the original Flatout. The handling is better than you’d expect (Scandinavian flicks are possible and useful) and every race is a thrilling hoot. As an action racer, then, it is one of the best and still, three years on, looks fantastic.

This Flatout 2 game contains disguised but prominent and frequent sexual swear words in song and potentially unpleasant scenes.

Classified 12+ by PEGI. The game is only suitable for persons who have reached the age of 12 or over.
