  • Summary: Another car combat game (released, oddly, at the same time as "Twisted Metal: Black"), this one of the post-apocalyptic variety, features Quick Start and Career Modes with 3 kinds of tournaments: Eliminator, Deathmatch and Endurance.

  1. Motor Mayhem isn’t a bad game, but it’s hampered by a combination of small, annoying slights that keep it from being the game it could be.
  2. It just seems that even with the unique ideas and pretty graphics, they never quite managed to pull it all together, and its just not all that much fun.
  3. MM surprised me with it’s slick graphical engine, solid game play, and involving depth and appeal. One thing that makes MM stand out is the fact it’s more of a futuristic sport, than a plain old kill and destroy storyline.

    Even if you completely wipe clean your memory of "Twisted Metal: Black" and just look at MM all by itself, you will still see a fairly shallow game that lacks any sort of discernable charm. The game's characters are lifeless and are completely devoid of personality.
  5. Gripping sound effects and a mind-blowing arsenal will keep you coming back for more...but only for a short while. You'll tire relatively quickly, and realize that "Twisted Metal: Black" is a clear winner.
  6. This ain’t no "Twisted Metal: Black." If Motor Mayhem had come out last October we might have recommended it; as it is, there's no real competition.
  7. 30
    The flaccid sounds are joined by dreadful physics—it’s like driving a balloon. The fighting game-style combo system is unwieldy, and a sense of speed would have been a good idea, too.

    Bad timing and poor game play make for a bad combination... it's always good to remember that David and Goliath was just a story....
