In 2006, the Finnish team BugBear Entertainment released an amazing arcade racing game called FlatOut. Older people might remember games like Wingel 8, Twisted Metal, or even Carmageddon. At one time, they were all mega hits, but then the concept of a car race / crash / shooter for some reason was forgotten. Hunger set in, races without rules began to be slowly forgotten. And then there was Flatout. And as soon as he appeared, he fired. Wonderful physics for its time, the ability to destroy everything and everything, a cool soundtrack, cool modes, among which DERBY stood out in particular. This is such a race without rules. The game is played until only one remains. And this is not just a knockout competition - no. Everyone has the same task - to destroy everyone you see. But enough emotions - let's move on to a measured story …
Of course, every good game is worth playing, but Flatout 2 is recommended to play for fun with friends. Therefore, we will pay less attention to the career. So, the garage, there are three classes of cars in the garage + one bonus.
- Derby: rusty tin cans that,however, they know how to drive decently and are very tenacious.
- Rally: golden mean.
- Sports cars: fast, uncontrollable, scary and very fragile cars.
- Bonus Class: This is a special mode technique. It is characterized by reactive thrust. You can't race it in a career, but in multiplayer… It will be a very fun day!
In the garage, as usual, there is tuning.
Strategy and tactics
The main highlight here is that this is the most anti-glamorous and most destructive racing without rules in the world. Therefore, "sneaker on the floor !!!" won't work here. Often, by buying the fastest car and killing all the rivals on the circle, you will receive the least points. Because these are fun races: to win here you need to ram, destroy buildings, substitute rivals. And it's in racing mode. This seemingly strange approach to racing does its job. Judge for yourself - in Need for Speed it all comes down to the fastest car and a catchup (a catchup is when a bot follows you much faster than you, as if cheating. In races, this helps keep adrenaline flowing). And racing without rules is more fun!
Besides the standard races, this game also has other things to look at. For example, unique mini-game modes in the game. Only in this game will you be able to play darts with a car, make a long-distance race in the pool, or simply throw the driver out of the cab to a height.
Well, the derby, which we mentioned above, in general, is a universal way to improve moodmyself and teammates.
The development of Flatout 2, unlike the first part, was allocated much more money. Therefore, the team got the opportunity to make a mega-cool, super-quality soundtrack for the game. In this application you will hear the compositions of Papa Roach, Nickelback, Rob Zombie. Together with an ultra-dynamic adrenaline component, these races without rules can also please you very much with a soundtrack!
Flatout 2 - great old school racing without rules. It was simply impossible not to notice games at one time. Therefore, if you are a connoisseur of the genre and, due to some misunderstanding, missed it, correct it immediately!
