    Ok, once and for all, someone should alert the general population.... if they keep buying Zoo games, they gonna keep releasing new ones! We need to make it stop for out safety and for humanity please!

    So, am not even asking directly, since I know at 90% what will be the answer, but anyone have something to say about that game?
    I just found it on my usual source, but wondering if it's worse 2 hours of my bandwidth...

    At first I was like [​IMG] Finally a good racing game on the Wii!
    Then I saw it and was like [​IMG]
    Now I am like [​IMG]
    How can they do that to Flatout?!?
    What's next? Are they going to steal Pokemon's title and make a generic shit clone of that?
    Why is Zoo allowed to even make video games?

    I was excited when i saw this. I thought this was one of the old FlatOut racing games.

    Zoo is now stealing titles from other games. [​IMG]

    from the video:

    pros:
    stunt mode is fun
    the arena mode is also ok and has good ai
    graphics aren't horrendous

    cons:
    racing mode is way too easy
    tracks are pretty bland and pretty devoid of actual destructible objects
    very few tracks, only one level for arena mode
    a pointless car destruction mode for unlocking vehicles, like street fighter, but stupid

    so basically a crappy game with flatout's name

    Where exactly does it say that this was made by Zoo? Nowhere, all they've done is act as publishers. It may not be the greatest racer on Earth but to write it off without a second thought because of the name on the front? Sheesh. Put your petty preconceptions to one side and critique the contents of the disc for once and not just the cover.

    With a track record equal to pure crap anything with the word Zoo on it is just going to be assumed to be crap. That's the natural order in life.

    ^-THIS.
    Seriously, ruined another game I had fun with.
    All I see is shovelware, every time I look at the releases, rare gem or two on occasion, but not much else to look forward to. >_>

    To tell you the truth, i liked it a lot!

    Hell, its the best racer on Wii, aside from Mario Kart.

    What? Can you point me one good racer on the wii, aside from Mario kart? No? Than Flatout is the second best.

    Yeah, we had that nice Need for Speed. That one called "Need for speed - paint everything and no one will ever see cause there´s no online play"

    This Flatout plays better than that Need For Speed.



    Anyway, Flatout Wii feels like the first Ridge Racer.

    (Remember the first Ridge Racer? THE GOOD ONE?)

    The graphics are pretty good. Dont come with the "can it be mistaken for an 360 game?" cause it cant. This will never happen on the wii. But the graphics really show some effort.

    Its really a joy to play... but it lasts for a little more than one hour.
    After that you´ve already unlocked every content in the game.

    This is a game that begged for online modes... and nobody listened

    Oh, and the Wii port of NFS Carbon was pretty good.
    And Excite Bots is not bad.
    All better than the main racing mode of this version of FlatOut.

    Ah, i knew i was forgotting something. Beats Mario Kart, in fact.

    But the need for speed... forget it. They wii Need for Speed games are disgusting.
