Videos of Flatout Ultimate Carnage's preview

Videos of Flatout Ultimate Carnage's preview

Empire Interactive sent us the preview build of FlatOut Ultimate Carnage, and as a racing game fan I had to play and record it immediately. I don't think a lot of people will complain about the graphics, as you'll all be able to see in these first two videos. For what was supposed to be just a port, it sure looks good!
Two more videos will be uploaded tonight or tomorrow, showing the Destruction Derby mode and a rather strange way to do some High Jumping.
Update: As promised, the two videos are now online.


Preview: Race #1
Preview: Race #2
Preview: High Jump
Preview: Deatchmatch Derby

streaming version of the 2nd video doesn't work for me:P

Somehow it doesn't look as exciting as I hoped. And I don't mean graphics:P

Graphics are amazing, physics look terribly dumbed down (compared to the original)

yeah i get what you mean. as with the last games it seems to be a little unsure of what it wants to be. a full blown sim or arcade racer. so its just a little of both. i never liked the handling, but this looks a little better. i hope i'm wrong but it just looks like a straight up racer with added stuff on the track. seems burnout is where im going to have to go for my racing fix.

graphics are pretty nice tho.

Looks ok noticed a big bug though the grass glitches inside the car. :0

When drives over the grass you can see it appear to be popping through the car take it thats down to preview build.

Many games have this "feature".

I hope they'll fix it in newer games.

Anyway - the game loox much better than colin. In colin when I hit the band is started floating and bending in the air. When I hit tires on the roadside, the upper row of the tires fell of and revealed the poor texture showing other tires. Plus Colin looks totally uninspiring.

Comparing to Burnout... there never was any competition. It's just another class.

Does it work very well with the MS wheel? I can imagine it would be awesome with all the crap flying around!

The physics? In what way? Everything seemed to break in far more pieces and there was a lot more stuff as well. The car seemed the same as ever, you upgrade as you go through the career mode.

30 fps.

i dont know how far along this preview build is, or what it actually contains. but does anyone have any sort of info on split screen multiplayer? like can you split screen the destruction derby arenas? and is it 2 player split screen + AI cars?

i think the only thing that could sell this game to me is those split screen options and the crash olympics. the main bulk of the racing looks a bit mediocre.

Ima have to disagree.

Well you can see by yourself with the video, it's totally faithful to how the game feels :)

I'm totally into racegames right now, just because their graphics seem to get better and better everytime there's a new one :D. *tingly feeling in my belly*
Commented on 2007-05-27 04:05:07
graphics are good but the soundtrack sucks from what i am hearing in this video. and the levels seem too dark and the racing itself looks boring. the tracks also have a problem, they are short and just go in a circle. not too excited for this one

Can't wait for this game! I played Flatout 2 all summer last year. Please post some mini game videos if the preview build has any.
Commented on 2007-05-27 11:07:46
can you upload a video of a city track too please
Commented on 2007-05-27 11:30:32
i dont think a game needs 60fps,in my opinion.
looking forward to this thanks blim :)
Commented on 2007-05-27 15:22:04
Cant wait for the high jumping video your gonna upload, I played that minigame for hours and hours on Flatout 1 and 2.

30fps is more than enough aslong as its solid, where 30fps is noticable, is when its not a steady and locked rate, dipping above and below all over the place, like moto gp 06 for example.

Imagine if you had rocket launchers attached to your car!

looks great, graphics are great
Commented on 2007-05-27 17:15:48
its pretty dissapointing that the game isnt running with 60fps

I dont think it looks smooth enough for me in the videos, I watched them on the 360

About the game


What's up?
  • rayy
    rayy @Sdarts: Play it today at a friend house on coop. Definitely much better game than the first and the first was already really good. I was also surprise how well it plays with a controller. (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker directly compare it to SDR, holy shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit. I just checked Ghost Recon beta and Hitman, ooooh my. :) (8 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: No lies detected man, very true. I don't know why I didn't notice it before, then again my only way of seeing a HDR game was via a video or two. But now with my own games and being able to (8 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts [url] And seems sales are great. Much deserved. (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the 2nd best reviewed game of the year: [url] (9 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: HDR does more for that "Wow!" factor than just increasing resolution to 4K. (9 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Tried out FM7 demo, FH3, Recore and man....what a difference. SDR looks dull in comparison now, jeez. In terms of colours for starters, sky and sun in FM7 and FH3 looks lovely, vivid. (9 Hours ago)
