I still think its a April Fool joke that Bugbear make this game. Its quite the opposite to the high speed fun and thrills of the Flatout series. :(

It's more like the original which I loved because of its deep unforgiving handling, when I played wreckfest a while ago it was a little more forgiving than the original but still preferable to over the arcadey Flatout 2.

The only good thing from the flatout series was the party game side mode. I always thought the driving was pretty budget game feeling. I'm hoping this, whenever it decides to release actually has a similar mode.

The driving model wasn't very complex, in that it didn't model a large number of physical systems, but what it did model (the crucial bits imo) it did well and gave the player total control over it (at least on sim mode). On most driving games on the most realistic settings, even games like Dirt Rally, I feel like there's still some hand holding going on. That feeling of total control, where only player input matters, over a dynamic physics based system is unique and when done right not only is very engrossing but it also conducive to skill amelioration which is always very satisfying.

Trials is another example of a game that gives you total control over a physics based system, rocketleague another.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth as for Tarkin, i think they should have gone with the stand-in actor with some make-up/prosthetics. just looking at him in the making-of material he looks close enough. (3 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @MrWhite: she was kinda stiff/robotic in the original BR too. Like a doll, which they obviously aimed for, which helps sell the 2049 version. (6 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The other scenes that had all CG models of the actors and actress were so well done, I didn't realise it was entirely all rendered. Joi for example is almost completely CG overlaid with the actress. (7 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Tarkin in Rogue One looked great right up until he started moving and talking. Then it just looked ridiculous. BR's Sean Young is a bit similar, but its only really her mouth moving that I find off (9 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite CGI was at the point of being capable of rendering photo realistic humans a while ago. It's just the animation that lets it down. (10 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Melmoth: That's the hard stuff because you instantly know its not real, though. The invisible stuff is usually stuff that isn't animated, like cityscapes and ambient background effects. (11 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth how many will point out that the snow by the roadside is a visual effect. those kind of effects are used all the time without people noticing. (14 minutes ago)
