Review of Twisted Metal

4

The game is excellent and extremely fun. The type of game to put a huge smile on your face. The cars are agile and easy to control and the gunplay is hugely satisfying. The game is perfect, if not for the broken online play - I haven't been able to join a single online match since I purchased this game months ago - even after several patches. If you don't mind playing this alone, or with friends via split screen (like the good old days) then this game is perfect and honestly, it's a phenomenal experience, especially with 4 of you on the couch, playing together. If you crave some online Twisted Metal action, however, then sadly this game isn't going to satisfy your needs. As a side note, the game arrived the day after the release date, which was a little disappointing, but it did include the pre-order bonus, as promised :)

Brings Back Memories

4

Twisted Metal was the pinnacle of gaming as a kid. I spent months playing Twisted Metal split screen and I'm pleased to say that the new version lives up to my nostalgic memories. Things have changed within the game; less characters being the major change. It's a shame that you can't play as all the different characters but isn't a deal breaker. The three stories are interesting (if a tad more serious than I was expecting) and the cut scenes are top quality with a nice grindhouse feel to them. As for gameplay, the controls take a bit of getting used to, however the training mode does a great job of getting you used to them. Once you get them mastered they do become fairly intuitive and that's when the game really comes alive. The AI is good with an instinct for fight or flight in the right situations. The major difference between this iteration and previous instalments is the use of the garage. Rather than picking one character and only using their vehicle, you now pick three vehicles at the start of the level. These can be three different ones, the same one three times or a mixture. Once on the map, there is a garage which allows you to swap vehicle. This can lead to very tactical gameplay where certain cars are more appropriate for taking down other ones - a nice addition for a fairly simple idea. Overall I would highly recommend this to anyone with a dark sense of humour and label it a must buy for fans of the series.

Good Classic Game - Bad Physics

3

I loved Twisted Metal on the old play station consoles. So i couldn't wait to pick up Twisted Metal for PS3... as soon as i got it, i put it into my console and started playing... The first thing: the game is almost the same like the old ones... so this is a good sign cause the game play didn't change that much. okay... there are new fancy features like the bikes and stuff you've seen in all those you tube videos but let me tell you one thing: The Game-Physics are definitely NOT state of the art... I'm really disappointed about that.

It's.... okay.

This game was my last hope of seeing a Twisted Metal game live up to the standard set all the way back in 1997 with Twisted Metal 2 (World Tour). Whilst better than Twisted Metal Black it's a step back from Twisted Metal Head-On and no where near as good as 2.

Twisted Metal (Pre-Order DLC)

Twisted Metal is great, apart from it's notoriously poor online matchmaking. I don't really think I can sum it up in any more detail than that, but seriously, the online servers are very poor.

The most fun you'll have on PS3

5

Above all else, a game should be fun and enjoyable to play. Too many modern games have you chacing achievements and kill death ratio's, rather than providing a fun experience. I want a game that will put a smile on my face, that will have me excited to get home, just to pop it into my Playstation, that will fill me with a feeling of accomplishment, purely because I participated and enjoyed myself, in doing so (you know, like the old days). I care not for MW3, GOW3, BF3, or anything that makes me want to throw a controller at the screen, because they've focussed on the competitive aspect of the game far, far too much (street fighter 4, anyone?). Though I do play these games from time to time, I feel the fun factor has been sucked away from them, along with almost every other game franchise in existence. A bit of competition is good, but because it sells, everything is now competitive... sigh. Not with this game lol. Playing with bots, with friends in the same room, or online, this game is awesome. Ever play a game where a glitch makes you laugh out loud and love the game even more? Ever play the same match for hours, not for wins, but for fun? Ever invite a friend over, just to play with them, because it's more fun when you're both in the same room? If not, then you probably missed out on most of what gaming is all about and why so many older gamers, like me, are still playing.

Twisted Metal (Pre-Order DLC)

4

Twisted Metal is a great game. The controls take a bit of time to get used to, but it doesn't really make it a bad game. It has great graphics to make up for it, but I can't find any games to enjoy online, as you can be waiting hours for a game to start.
