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:

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:

looks pretty cool. Pretty smashy smashy effects. I might give it a try, but for now its running over hookers in Vice City for me.

one of the few driving games I'm looking forward to, and I agree it looks very good.

it's lacking pedestrians that you can nock into though...

that guy flying is actually the driver flying out of his car. That's a feature in that game; if you go fast enough and make a frontal hit, ur driver flies through the front window... but i can't see the window broken.... :)

Man, Destruction Derby was an awesome game. The sequal wasn't bad either. Looks good.

Does FlatOut have a track editor? I've never read an article about it that mentions it, and neither does the official site.

I'm wondering about that because I used to love Stunts, and have been looking for a newer replacement for a while. Trackmania came close, but it's 'car vs car' racing was rather limited (mostly time-based racing). The game that seems to come closest is Crashday, but it looks a lot farther off than FlatOut.

But I suppose I'll have to wait. Destruction Derby didn't have a track editor either iirc.

On a sidenote, the "driver-flying-out" screens make me go HAR HAR HAR, so I'll be playing this game anyway.
