FlatOut Pancaked: ‘Next Car Game’ Is Stunning

Like a tyre rolling from the twisted, sad mess of a vehicle pile up, I shed a single tear at the awful state of the last FlatOut game. FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction wasn't made by the original developers, BugBear, but its existence appears to have angered them into returning to the car crashing games that they love. It doesn't have the FlatOut name, but…
