    Twisted Metal games were always good fun, and this is no exception; with the improved framerate (as opposite to the PSP version, this runs at 60 Frames Per Second), battles go at a great pace. Multiplayer's disappointing, though, especially after Black brought online play and 4-player split-screen to the table. Still, tons of content, a budget price tag, and some sweet extras make Twisted Metal games were always good fun, and this is no exception; with the improved framerate (as opposite to the PSP version, this runs at 60 Frames Per Second), battles go at a great pace.

Still, tons of content, a budget price tag, and some sweet extras make for one last moment for PS2 owners to cheer. If you don't have the PSP version and like Twisted Metal, buy this. Now. For those who do own the PSP version, well, there's enough extras in here to get your money's worth, so I still heavily recommend buying it. Expand

    We know this is a port, but you're getting an awful lot of stuff for only twenty bucks. And considering the fact that most of the content packed onto the disc is fun to play, there's really no reason for a Twisted Metal fan to miss this one.
  2. Trimmed-back multiplayer is a kick in the gut. But the PlayStation 2 never was all that great for deathmatches in the first place. The add-on modem and the PlayStation 2 multi-tap peripheral required to play four-player games were, and still are, a hassle.
  3. I appreciated the chance to play the lost levels, but it didn't take long to explore them all - and in 2008 they just didn't have the same "wow" factor that they might have had in 2001. Newcomers who own a PS2 would be better off purchasing "Twisted Metal: Black."
