Flatout 2 is one of my favorite racing games of all time. Probably my #1 for PC. The graphics and physics while maintaining high FPS were the key points for me. I wish more titles took advantage of an engine such as this.

I wish they'd increase the car count. Kinda like an online shooter where PC usually has 32 and console 16, or there abouts. They need a whole heap more cars for the PC version IMO.

It looks like an enhanced edition of Flatout 2: a bit better graphics and effects and same gameplay. I played for half an hour and I found a couple of old Flatout 2 tracks with some subtle changes. As you know the game uses Live, now you can compare your time with players around the world, even on single player mode.

If you liked Flatout 2, you will love this one for sure. Same brutal action, decent graphics and good control with the 360 gamepad. Soundtrack if similar too, so you will love it or hate it. Didn't try all game modes, just did a couple of races. I like the game, it's good enough for the €25 I have paid, but simulation purists please stay away from it.

Looks a lot like FO2. Is the AI the same? I see a lot of familiar names.

Also, is LIVE only good for scoreboards or do we get some multiplayer out of this?

Both scoreboards and multiplayer, you can create or join servers, and look for players with similar level than yours. Didn't dig much into multiplayer, just tried the browser and saw it worked

Why does this game run so badly? 4xTRMSAA and 16xAF used to run very high fps in the normal flatout, there is not that much more impressive stuff in the tracks? It stutters and dips below 30 so much.

Q6600 and 8800GTX at Ultra speeds.
