FlatOut 4: Total Insanity repairs the damage done to the series by its diabolical predecessor, but it’s not quite the return to form it could have been – it simply doesn’t do enough to innovative or improve the games that came before it and struggles to find its own identity. There’s fun to be had but the damage modelling is too primitive for a crash-centric racer, the physics and AI are frustratingly inconsistent, and the repetitive career suffers from serious pacing issues. FlatOut 4 fills the void of light-hearted arcade racers, but if you’re looking for a game to satisfy your appetite for destruction, you’re better off waiting for Wreckfest.
