Game Review (FlatOut - PS2)

This game was not nearly as good as I thought it would be. There are great mini games, which involve you: hitting a bullseye, doing a highjump, bowling, all with a guy.In most of the events, you simply ride your car near something and hold and release R1. This was not too much fun to do. Anyways here' my review. I had great antisipation towards this game, thinking it would be the best game around, but i was wrong.

Graphics: 4.5/5. This i probably the games high point. The dirt and water effects are sweet, and when you crash your car. The bad graphics are when your guy flies out of your car he looks very cheap. ( bad graphics. ) and sometimes the screen flickers, giving ME a headache.

Sound: 2.5/5. Ahh I hated the music in this game. The music is not very poppy, rocky, or good in any way. The songs are all horrible, and all you hear in this game is that, and engine revings.

Controls: 3/5. The controls are okay, but they take time to get used to, and when you turn, you can easily and you usally do, go from about 70 MPH to about 30 MPH on every turn.

Fun: 3/5. This game was simply not that great. I mean there are ragdoll physics in this game, but it just didn't entertain me. The races all suck, the only good part of this game is the mini-games; which are single player; and there is no online play at all. I wouldn't recommend this game unless you have a cravin' for ragdoll physics, like most people. So this is worth a rental, and not a buy.
