FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage (Xbox 360)

 

The newly released FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage is actually just a reworking of 2006's demolition racer FlatOut 2. It's got the prerequisite shiny new graphics and additional on-track carnage. However, it also comes with some new modes and vehicles to...

Perfecting a racing game is ironically enough, like fine tuning a car. Discovering the ultimate balance for AI and handling are keys to success and after three outings you would...

Everything Is Online Now ; Carnage Mode Rocks ; Pretty Shiny Graphics

Learning Curve Is Too Steep ; Cars Still Feel Floaty ; Why Does US Boxart Suck So Bad

FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage

 

For all the talk about violence in videogames and parental and congressional groups getting up in arms about so-called “murder simulators,” it's a wonder there isn't more said about racing games that award points for crashing into things. After all, if...

Destructible environments ; Stunt events are great fun

Frustration factor of trying to balance fast racing with destroying as much scenery as possible is high ; No online minigames

Kind of a Burnout Lite and slightly more fun than frustrating. Minigames hit that exact right "just one more" sweetspot that'll keep gamers playing long after they meant to stop.

Flatout Ultimate Carnage review for the XBOX360

 

Ride Roughshod

Reckless, fun driving; A.I. personalities; Mini-games, especially Destruction Derby; Destructible environments

Repetitive opponents; No local multiplayer; Deserted online multiplayer; Stale music

The game is also short, and you can tear through all of the tracks in around ten hours of solid driving. But as a game that sat around on the GR shelf for a week before I was tricked into reviewing it, its big successes came as a welcome surprise. B +...

FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage

 

When coming up with ways to describe FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage it is hard not to start with comparisons to Burnout, if for no other reason than to establish some kind of baseline. They are both arcade-style racing games, and they are both at least as...

The end result is a very mixed bag. When FlatOut is good, it's very good. Crashing cars is turned into an art form, and the presentation is most stunning. Between career mode, individual challenges, and online play there's much four-wheeled chaos to...

FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage

 

The racing game where accidents aren't accidental and the roads are more jam-packed than a garbage dump.

So much to see and destroy; smooth, explosive visuals; high thrill factor

Too busy for some drivers; no rear-view mirrors; blah "Stunts" mode

So tell me, just how crazy do you want your racing action to be?

If you like your racing fast and furious, with more than a little car-crushing chaos, then FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage will definitely satisfy your needs. If you like your racing a little more civilized, you might want to check out something like Project...

There is no shortage of driving games available to Xbox 360 owners, so publishers often need to offer something different to set their product apart from the pack. The Finnish developers of Flatout Ultimate Carnage, Bugbear, have found a niche for...

Xbox Live play allows the gamer to participate in Deathmatches, Carnage races and Stunt events. Up to 8 competitors can go head to head in a fairly lag-free event. The only weak point of Xbox Live support lies in its treatment of Stunt mode, as all...

Flat-out mayhem, flat-out human launching and flat-out fun.

See more screens from Flatout: Ultimate Carnage ... For those who want to floor it in a car, however, Flatout: Ultimate Carnage has plenty on hand. The Flatout Mode starts you off from scratch with your average junker, which you can later upgrade with...

FlatOut Ultimate Carnage Review (Xbox 360)

 

This makes good sense, as Electronic Arts and Criterion have done an excellent job with their smash-em-up franchise. But there's a newer kid on the block looking to change the conversation a tad
