First Flatout 2 images

First Flatout 2 images

Empire Interactive just released the first images of Flatout 2, which is planned for a May release on Xbox, PS2 and PC. The number of cars, tracks and minigames seems to be double the amount compared to last time, and you'll be able to crash seven other players via Xbox Live. The game is this time set in the US, and you'll see some images (with Windows tray included) inside.

LOL I love it when suddenly people think downscaled screenshots from either PC or a devkit represent what the framebuffer will render ingame.

Ooh lala.. no wait its called BICUBIC SCALING.

These aren't the first pics on the net...

I think FlatOut 2 looks worse than the original. Art direction seems a bit "off" and there's that annoying bloom thingy that has been plaguing too many new games these days.

This smells yucky of stink that reeks. The first FlatOut, while not a perfect game (it was the shallow and the short) had the perfect crazy hillbilly-like insanity setting. Driving around in gravelly roads of the forests and stuff with old rusty crapmobiles of junk. Then in the sequel they've gone all 2F2Furiousy. AKA stupid and silly and ridiculous. Not to mention it doesn't sound like it'll really improve on the concept, just more of the same. It's almost obvious they're just trying to sell the game. So FlatOut 2 gets a "Blech!" from me. It probably will be a bit fun though, I must admit without really knowing.

Flatout is one of the most underrated games of last gen.

About the game

What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Tiz: Yeah, but its still there, isn't it. It's still "optional". Another bullshit cop out apologetic argument that gets bandied about. (0 minute ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @MrWhite: Yeah people do pay and that is their prerogative. EA just went full greed but not all implementations are done like that. (1 minute ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @MrWhite: No I get the point. In most implementations paying for loot boxes isn't the only way to get things. (2 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite People still pay for loot boxes just for cosmetic shit. And even if its free *cough* Overwatch *cough* it's still setting an example for cunts like EA and WB to capitalise off of. (3 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Tiz: You're completely missing the point. It's about the method to obtain things...things that impact your game, visually or otherwise. (5 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @MrWhite: Yeah and the trend has limits as I've pointed out. EA with BF2 is practically the worst you can get because they wanted everything from cosmetics to P2W. (5 minutes ago)
