  • Summary: Free when you purchase Sony's Network Adapter for your PS2, it's an online version of Twisted Metal: Black. Battle 7 competitors through a broadband connection or settle for head-to-head with a dial-up.

  1. Considering that the original was a perfect balance of maneuverability and speed, this really turns TMB Online into an awesome title.
  2. Broadband users are the ones that will truly benefit from the experience though, as you can have up to 8 players go head to head in death-match mayhem with virtually no lag most of the time. This is about as fun as you will get with an online game on a console for the time being.

    After a few plays, though, the game becomes tiresome—mostly due to repetitive gameplay and lack of balance.
  4. It's fast, fun, and most importantly, free. [Oct 2002, p.192]
  5. But you want brutal, in-your-face intensity from on-line gaming and that's exactly what Twisted Metal is all about.
  6. If this came free with the PS2 Network Adapter - as it does in the US - we might be more inclined to give it the benefit of the doubt.
