The FlatOut franchise returns to its adrenaline-pumping arcade destruction roots while adding new and exciting features. Get ready for an adrenaline filled demolition derby game which features muscle cars, race cars, trucks and even a rocket-boosted ice cream van! Engage in a high-speed derby packed with destruction and explosions, with a thumping indie rock soundtrack, in a world which never takes itself too seriously! Just like good derby racers used to be. Tear through the destructible environments while barreling down a ramp before launching your vehicle in the air to collide with your opponent. If you love FlatOut, you won't be disappointed! FlatOut 4: Total Insanity blends larger than life destruction with a sleek racing experience. Experience three racing vehicle classes, each with its own style and characteristics. Have a favorite? Upgrade your vehicle and dominate the competition! Experience four racing environments: Forest, Desert, Industrial, Mountain each with a variety of tracks to master, filled with short cuts, jumps, obstacles, bridges and more. Smash your way to the finish line, building up boost as you crash through lumbermills, petrochemical plants, a snow swept mountain village and more, all while violently trading trade paint with your opponents!
Well, I have already played the game on Playstation 4 and now also on the PC and have to say that the team have created a solid flatout part :)
- The soundtrack is very well chosen, beautiful rock music that fits the game. The adjustment of... the cars is quite nice. You have some boost variants, horns and stickers (you have to unlock them first)
- You have several ways as you already knew it from Flatout 1 and 2, which is very good.
So much for the good things about the game, but there are also not so good things about the game.
- The steering is quite spongy in my eyes, you partly have the feeling of riding on rails, you don't always have your car under control. You get used to it, but it's a bit of a pity. .
- The AI is not the smartest. . . Very often they drive directly onto the wall etc. or what I also noticed is that there is a certain rubber band effect, you can catch up very well if you are further back. In general, the game is very simple in terms of career. If you're in front and you drive quite well, it can't get to you anymore and you just win. I speak for everyone who loved it in the one and two parts. The damage model is not so tingly, the car is de-formed, but that parts like that don't fly off the car.
Fazit: The game is a solid flatout part, with advantages and disadvantages. It's fun and you can also spend some fun hours in the game. But if you are still undecided, you should wait for a sale. But by and large, I can recommend it. :)
