Experience the drive of your life in Flat Out as you throw yourself around 45 challenging tracks in one of 16 fully upgradeable cars. The track environment is subject to an advanced physics system unique to this game, and is set to define a new standard in racing games. Fences will shatter, tyre walls will explode, water tanks and barrels will fly across the track into other cars. Every time you lose control, you will truly feel the weight of the car as it collides with and destroys a barn, or smashes into the pack of cars ahead of you, and with 40 deformable pieces on every car sparks are guaranteed to fly.
Anything you destroy or alter stays a part of the race, increasing the carnage to unprecedented levels. Broken fences, free rolling tyres, and even mangled parts of cars are left scattered around the track, increasing the mayhem with every lap. The expansive free-roaming tracks also allow you to dictate exactly how you drive your race, whether that be taking every shortcut, jump and by-road you can find, or keeping to the racing line and using your driving skills to rein supreme.
An extensive championship mode will keep you "flat out" for months on end as you battle through a huge variety of races, mini-games and the most outrageous arenas of destruction you could possibly imagine. And it doesn't stop there. Online and multiplayer gaming options add even more variety to the game play. Challenge your closest peers, or the best gamers from across the globe and compete in the most realistic racer to date.

Look forward to FlatOut 2.....get this though....it's smashing! (lame pun intended)
The car physics are great - barrel rolls look convincing and, handling-wise - it is similar to playing any good rally game (lots of oversteer and feathering the throttle).
Although this is certainly not a "fast" racing game (like Burnout 3 for example) the fact that you have a bit more time to think means that your manouevres can be a little more precise and intentional. Stacking an opponent into a crane and hearing that driver wailing as he/she ploughs through the windscreen is akin to doing a good "takedown" on B3 i.e. it puts a big grin on your face!
Driving aggressively earns you Nitro boost which is dead useful for overtaking - it has little effect when used to ram opponents.
Unfortunately you only score "cash" for destroying objects, not for stylishly shunting your opponents into heavy objects.
The only similarity this game has to Gran Turismo is the manner in which you start: have money, buy a banger, win races, win money, tune banger, etc.
There are many sub-games too - including a DD-style destruction bowl and "figure of 8" racetracks too.
The bonus "jumping" events (hurl your man/woman through the windscreen in a high jump or long jump fashion!) have to be seen to be believed!!!
To me this game is a logical progression of the first Destruction Derby game on PS1 - the physics, graphics and sound have of course all been much improved and it's certainly much closer to DD1 than Reflections' own DD Arenas release.
Flat Out has no online capability, but it does have multiplayer (split screen or up to 4 player sequential) modes.
I think it's a cracking little game! ;-)
