    Twisted Metal isn't perfect, but most gamers will enjoy this game regardless of genre-loyalty. Twisted Metal is one of the most rewarding multiplayer experiences a gamer can have.

    The best vehicle combat game available today, pure fun and extreme vandalism. It is a bit tough to get engaged by the game, but soon you will become addicted to its excellent and anarchic mechanics.

    It loses points for having a dull singleplayer mode, but if it is viewed as your training ground for the multiplayer it starts to make more sense. The multiplayer is so fast paced and convincingly pulled off it is a blast to play, even with the controls being a tad hard to get used to.

    Twisted Metal is back with its chaotic and amazing multiplayer. Unfortunately, the single-player campaign is pretty boring and from a technical standpoint the game feels a bit "old". Still, if you want a brutally fun online experience, this is the game for you.

    At the end of the day, vehicular combat is fun. Unlike all the kart racing games we have played over the years, Twisted Metal is just about blowing your opponents up, and that's simply an enjoyable pastime.
  6. Despite feeling the need to shower regularly during much of Twisted Metal, though, this should still be considered a successful return. A super violent serving of chunkily satisfying motor carnage, it offers a unique P53 joyride. Just tone down the Ronald McDonald homicide next time, eh?

    It doesn't matter that the vechiles are extremely balanced and that the online multiplayer flows like clockwork. Twisted Metal is, in it's very core, boring and ugly.

I had to create an account simply here simply to say how much fun this game is to someone that has been waiting years for another good Twisted metal game.

    The different game modes for multiple player is fun. the race mode and killbox mode for story mode are really crazy. This game exceeded my hopes and dreams.

It's been two years since a multiplayer game has given me the same thrills and addiction that this has. I have received this today and cannot stop playing. I spent 10 + hours on the multiplayer DEMO. This game is amazing. I've never played a twisted metal game before, but I am an old school pc gamer who loves half life and quake. This is the console equivalent guys! THe cotnrols are hard to get used to, but once you do, the game is fluid, fast, and feels natural. The revieres complaining about the controls simply have not spent the time to enjoy the complex game that is twisted metal! Expand

    This game is awesome, the gameplay itself is fast paced and dynamic if compared to TM2 (the only other "awesome" TM game that I've played),This game is awesome, the gameplay itself is fast paced and dynamic if compared to TM2 (the only other "awesome" TM game that I've played), but the basic formulae its the same, and the game is very fun. The other types of levels besides the classic car death match (like races and robot bosses) are very interesting and challenging. I was disappointed with the history, because I always want a sequel for the TM2 history, but anyways it is very well made and impressive. One thing that I did not like was the fact of the few drivers, and that there's no driver-car connection betwen them like the other TMs. But if you are a Twisted Metal fan, don't waste your time and buy it!

    while the game is not without its flaws it is a very good game. it had the basic elements of a story, which if i can recall from my very youngwhile the game is not without its flaws it is a very good game. it had the basic elements of a story, which if i can recall from my very young brain, was more than the one i use to play did(can't remember which). one major letdown for me was the fact that they didn't bring back all of the old drivers. it centers around Sweet Tooth, Mr.Grim, and Dollface, each owning their own "gang" which starts the factions for online play. i however find no reason to love them except sheer nostalgia, with the exception of Mr.Grim. the car balance however is nice, some being faster with more damage while others are tanks with heavy armor and powerful weapons. the one inclusion all fans of the series were fretting about though was the helicopter, Talon. They did a wonderful job of implementing him making it difficult to use him from too high up and susceptible to immense fire too low. He has low armor making it extremely difficult to stay near one car too long. the only thing i feel was missing was axle. axle was the reward you got for pre-ordering the game, though he was also my favorite character as a kid, making me incredibly dissapointed that i didn't pre-order it. the online experience feels just...unpolished. you can't join a match in session making it similar to WoW except you can't play while waiting, though once i was in it was smooth with no lag at all, and they included an online pass code system though as long as you don't mind buying new the servers stay up constantly so it isn't "that" bad though it seems like they're way of milking money from the customer. one of my favorite features in the game is the ability to customize the paint of your car to whatever you please. you can jut go on their website, upload a picture, and put it in the game. every fan knows however that this is one of those games that is best played splitscreen and it delivers. you can go through a co-op campaign or just have a deathmatch. it is very fun.

Not even worth a rent, because you won't be able to play the online half of the game without purchasing an online pass for 10 dollars. Expand
