Ars Technica has posted their review of FlatOut.
"Hardcore gamers are not the target audience for this game, and at US$39.99 there are better racing games for your money. Having said that, I think I can safely say that there are much worse ways to spend an afternoon. This could be the title that'll get a friend into gaming, and it's so easy to have a go at, it's a very inclusive game. Even if you can't stay on the track, the crashes are so entertaining you'll rarely get frustrated. If more titles like this aimed at casual gamers keep up this level of quality I don't think it'll become as a much as a ghetto genre as it has been."
