FlatOut 2 review

High-speed driving, lack of proper seatbelt usage and a giant dart board come together in this not-so-ordinary racer

The highlight of FlatOut 2 is the Stunts mode, which uses rag doll animation (drivers’ loosely-jointed bodies fly through the air with nauseating physical realism) to provide a stern lesson in seatbelt safety. The setup for each stunt is pretty consistent: drive as fast as you can down a mostly straight track and, before you reach the end, launch your flailing driver through his windshield and toward a target. Whether you’re going for height in the High Jump, distance in the Ski Jump or accuracy in Bowling and Darts, each of the 12 stunts has its own morbid comedic value and become especially fun when played with several people.
