NGN: "When Empire Interactive closed in 2009 it ended over two decades of game publishing. After they declared bankruptcy, Empire’s game franchises were sold. Among them was the well received FlatOut series. FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage, released in 2008 on PC, was the last game in the series developed by BugBear Entertainment. It was a great blend of high speed racing, professional visuals and satisfying destruction. Strategy First now holds the franchise and Team 6 Game Studios have developed the latest entry, FlatOut 3: Chaos & Destruction. Unfortunately the game is terrible and should be avoided at all costs."
