    This is not like Twisted metal games in series by theory but thats why it is so good. it Defies the normal liking and is very interesting th way the players seek wha they want. But sometimes when they win the get kind of screwed over.

    This game has weapons, better characters, and I like the fact that its not all blowing up actual people.I also like how you can unlock cars and new levels.

    I have been a big fan of "Twisted Metal 4" and I love this game almost as much. I have spent the past 10 hours playing this game today. I would say that it is much better than Twisted Metal(s) 1-3. The only thing I would change is the controls. Make them more like TM4. The areas are nice and I like the fact that you now can "unlock" areas and cars. Keep up the good work.

    While it's not quite World Tour, Small Brawl is still miles ahead of the utter crap that was 989's attempt at recreating the Twisted Metal experience.

    Overall this game is really good, with nice levels and vehicles. The only thing i don't like about this game is that it doesn't have enough bonus levels or characters.

    "This is a cool game, I got it from a friend that had a lot of PS games. These mischeivous, terrors that can fight bosses can be so cool. These pint-sized machines can destroy movie theaters to butcher shops. You should and will buy this game."

    It was one of the best twisted metal games i have ever played. I think if you havent played this game you're really missen out on something big, so try it now.

    I really liked all the other series of tm, this one even that it was produced in 2001 had sucky graphics and maps but I enjoyed it a lot, it was like a bonus after all other tm series.

    This game stinks compared to the other Twisted Metal games!! I prefer nice big graphics, not little Gameboy graphics.

    The graphics are not quite up to par, but overall it is an amusing addition to the Twisted Metal world. The thought of the drivers from previous games as children was very creative. I let my little brothers play it so they quite asking about TM Black.

    Not at all like the other Twisted Metals, not as graphic, and not as fun.

    This game is definitely one of the worst Twisted Metals I own. The look and feel of the game was like a game of a Pre-Twisted Metal time. The game is extremely easy and it takes nothing to beat and recieve the secret items.

    This game sucks! And it really does. Unlike the other earlier TM's TMSB has worse graphics, childish style of game, few unlockables and the game is really stupid. This is the worst TM I have in my collection.

  1. Except for the cut-scenes, the graphics weren’t too exciting and the sound is just blah. The sloppy control and light gravity also don’t help too much. Despite all this, I still found this to be a fun game once I got the hang of it and I also found myself becoming strangely addicted to it.
  2. "Twisted Metal 2" is light years beyond Small Brawl. Small Brawl is more akin to a Gameboy Advance game than a full fledged PSX SKU.
  3. Some will immediately be turned away by the graphics and others by the more childish design, but if your PlayStation is still kicking, you might want to check it out.
