Thumbs up Flat-Out

Man I am just really excited about this game, about 6 years ago I was a HUGE Destruction Derby fan, mainly the realistic vehicle damage, etc. I was also a pretty big fan of the Driver series. Now, although Flat-Out does not have a "bowl" style match from my understanding, it does have a few interesting gameplay modes, such as one mode where you must fling your driver out of the car, and try to hit a bullseye... interesting

The physics are incredible, the damage looks great, I played it at E3 in the nVidia booth and the graphics were stunning I am really looking forward to this game.

Check out this 28mb trailer! The damage and physics model is incredible! Parts of this trailer look near photrealistic:
Official Trailer Here

Its coming for X-box, PC, and PS2 in fall Really, the graphics I saw at e3 were amazing.

Also check out the official site:
www.flatoutgame.com

Also some screenshots:

Looks pretty cool.... I will have to wait for a demo though since it might control for poop.

Cool, someone else has spotted this game, doesn't it look great eh? i think it's being developed by BugBear, the same people responsible for (the very playable) Rally Trophy, so the handling and physics are going to be top notch.

I haven't seen the trailer yet, time to download!

Oh man! so it is bugbear developing it, but bloody hell, this games looks pretty incredible in motion, and unbelievably hilarious with it's use of ragdoll physics! This game is going to be single most potent reason to wear you seatbelt in future.

I see what you mean about the photorealism in the middle section of the video, when you're on the bumper cam view and the ****pit view. This looks to be the best 'fun' racer on the pc in years. Roll on some kind of demo release.

At the end of that trailer, it says it has "Destruction Arena Mode" Maybe a destruction derby? Man I hope so that would be awesome

Wow, that trailer was amazing. I loved the Destruction Derby games. I had the original for PC (DOS baby!) and DD2 and DD: Raw for PSX.

Been looking at shots from bhmotorsports for a while now and it looks like to me someone applied USM on the first three shots in this thread. I think I can make out halos on many of the edges.

Going off-topic for a bit, Richard Burns Rally has gone gold. Whoo!

Some of those mini games looks amazingly fun lol.... wonder what the description is for some of them "Drive as fast as possible into the ramp, launching the person into a hole for points" :\.

Another funny fact, is the German censored version of the game, the devs were forced to use Crash Test Dummys instead of humans.... LOL!!!

Some more SS's...
