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!

6.6 / 10.0

FlatOut 4: Total Insanity is better than I'd feared but not as good as I'd hoped. Kylotonn has dredged this near-forgotten racing rebel from the very bottom of the barrel and fashioned it into a basic but fun, stunt-filled speedster, but I found myself regularly frustrated with its repetitive career mode, its stingy economy and nebulous unlockables, its superficial demolition derby events, and its uneven difficulty. A respectable franchise rescue mission but one that still needs some fine tuning and some extra grunt.

In so many ways this feels like a driving game from another age, but no matter how much you miss old school arcade racers FlatOut 4 will end up driving you crazy.

Flatout 4 brings the franchise into the modern day and gets away from the line with a dash, but nonsensical progression and frustrating AI quickly kills its drive.

FlatOut 4 is a single minded beast where destroying your opponents is just as important as good driving. There are very few games of this type on this generation of console and whilst it's not up to the standards of Motorstorm or Blur, it's still a lot of silly fun.
