** OneClickMac says FlatOut 2 "really is a one of a kind and will be a breath of fresh air for those accustomed to the more formal, yet morosely dull, track racers you see these days. Come and have some real fun." **
Experience the drive of your life as you throw yourself around on and off the track causing fences to shatter, tyre walls explode, water tanks and barrels fly across the track into other cars. And if anyone, including you, gets caught up in a big smash sit back and watch as the driver gets catapulted through the windscreen in spectacular effect. With over 5000 destructible objects on each track and 40 deformable pieces on every car sparks are guaranteed to fly increasing the mayhem with every lap!
As the different races progress youíll recognise which of the AI characters are your closest rivals. How you decide to take them out is up to you, like slamming them into a bridge, stealing a lead through an alternate route or Nitro boosting your way past them in the final moments.
And with the ever popular Rag Doll mini-games from the original FlatOut making a welcome return and better than ever with 12 Rag Doll events, a Rag Doll Championship, FlatOut 2 is set to be the biggest, brashest and most destructive action racing game on the Mac.

Best racing game on the Mac App Store
….or at least the best that I've tried…...I was looking for a great racing game for my MacBook Pro, already having Asphault 6 and Real Racing and not being satisfied, then I saw Flatout 2 under the Simulation category (why in the world isn't it under Racing Games??) and had to get it. Sure, it's an old game and one that wasn't originally made for a computer, but I figured if it was anything like it's old counterpart it would be a steal for the price. I was thrilled to see the same graphics (still great quality) and the same amount of content (a TON) as the original release. If you're a racing game fan, or a fan of the original, you will not be let down. There is one thing though that bothered me, something that I found completely unacceptable. I am running Lion and while my Mac exceeds all of the requirements, it does glitch here and there. I'm not sure if this is a Lion issue or something else but I've seen others post complaints of having similar problems when running this with Lion; it does run and still is very playable, but the glitches take some of the fun out of the game. Other then that this is a perfect racing game and a true FULL game but PLEASE UPDATE FOR LION!
1.1.9 - AWESOME GAME
Hey Swammy, change the nitro key from “control” to something else on the Mac (like Z, if you don’t use shift) and then the car can steer through nitro!
- windowed does not work right
- app forgets settings with each launch
The rest seems good and graphics seem faster.
Simply the best racing game in the Mac Store right now (Oct 2015), even though it’s several years old. The physics are simply the best.
The turbo key had been “broken” on Mac, but the fix is simple. By default, turbo is mapped to the Mac control key. This causes steering to lock up because of how the Mac control key works. The fix is simple though: map it to another key! I moved it “X” and now the game is better than ever. All the crash and sound issues from earlier ports seem to be fixed. I played last night on the local LAN with someone else who bought 1.07 from Steam. No problem, no crashes, and loads of fun.
It looks great on my late 2013 MBPro with retina display with all the graphics set to high or highest. It loves my 1080p monitor better though - a few less pixels to deal with.
NOTE: the online (not LAN) option is available but is no longer supported. No big deal - just play Career or LAN.
Controller support broken for over a year; all progress deleted; no sound
My Logitech RumblePad 2 used to work great, but the stick axes were all scrambled after an update over a year ago, and have never been fixed. Only the buttons can be assigned.
And now, for the SECOND time, an app update has deleted my player profile with ALL progress and settings, forcing me to start over completely from scratch.
And lastly, the game has no audio after the first splash movie. Silence. (It sometimes crashes dead after that first movie too.)
Not worth it. Used to be a VERY fun game if it still worked, but for me it doesn’t. (2013 Mac Pro, Yosemite.)
