Flatout 2 images

Flatout 2 images

Vivendi has released seven new images from Finnish Bugbear's game Flatout 2. The first game was one of the prettiest last generation, I just wish they could do a next-gen version of this too.

NICE WipEout parody with those bilboards :D. The game is looking great; bloom isn't overused and the sparks look a LOT like Burnout. I enjoyed the first one, so lets hope this one turns out even better.

Looks... ok.

for an original xbox game even though those are PC screens I think... Looks very nice! Hope for a next-gen version maybe :)

While some of us are asking devs to please stop ports, some others just keep on wanting the ports, and then we wonder why is the 360 full of ports. Thank you Manager.

Embrace the ports, I say! If you like a game and you can get it somewhat snazzed up, with achievements, 720p and play it with the 360 pad, why the hell not?

Because that's going to cost you 60 dollars instead of what, 30 dollars from the old version, is it worth it? Of course not.

I dunno why Xbox games cost half of what 360 games cost where you live, but here they don't. Usually a fiver separates them which is about.. um.. 10 bucks I think. Now, for me and I think everyone with a 360, 10 bucks is worth it for their constant Friends list presence and all of the chatty functions that come with it, aswell as achievements, souped up graphics and playing with the controller that made the S feel clunky.

Me too, we really need a fun destruction-derby-like game on the Xbox 360..

I enjoyed the first one very much. The mini games were brilliant fun, and were good for parties.

Agreed. I've got no problem with well produced ports. I've been having a surprising amount of fun with BF2:MC and Burnout Revenge - neither game rocks the 360s hardware to the fullest extent, but some care and effort was spent upgrading them for the system. Neversoft on the other hand can rot for their half, no one eighth, assed ports of Gun and Tony Hawk.

Oh and this game looks very good indeed - if those are xbox shots, somebody deserves a big hug.

Only after reading reviews of FLAT OUT did i realise this series of games were good.

Isn't this the game where you actually have a mode where you crash your car and see how far the passenger or driver flies off from the crash? LOL

Looks really really good. If the reviews are great and if they do release a demo and i like it..might pick this game up..seems to be one on the league of burnout's pure arcade style.. Just pick up and play!

is it just me or is this guy flamming in ever single post you read?

Oh we've got a few of those, vlasveld. I find that ignoring them or sarcastically commenting is the best way to deal. Other options like.. actually taking in what they're saying often leads to headaches and nausea.

Yeah, if Sony decides they want to develop a 360 game! Fingers crossed!

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (6 Hours ago)
