  1. If you have ever been a fan of the Twisted Metal series, then getting this game is a no-brainer. It's easily one of the best in the series and gives fans pretty much everything they've wanted out of the series.
  2. It'll keep you entertained for hours and hours, and the multiplayer capabilities truly are an absolute blast. Head-On is completely faithful to the Twisted Metal namesake and does pretty much everything right.
  3. The graphics are excellent, and it's a ton of fun to play through some of the best levels from "Twisted Metal 2" in online deathmatch.
  4. A burning hot game of TM that's every bit as cool as "Black," Head-On rocks from the outset. [May 2005, p.69]

    It's the kind of thing you really need to see to believe, and once you do you'll notice that a crowd's formed behind you.
  6. The portability of this title increases the fun factor up a few notches, not to mention the online aspect of the game.
  7. Flaws such as button layout, poor targeting and matches that go on forever make this disappointingly average. [Nov 2006, p.155]

    This game is rockin. If you haven't played Twisted Metal before, youre in for a real treat. Every character has his/her own reasons for This game is rockin. If you haven't played Twisted Metal before, youre in for a real treat. Every character has his/her own reasons for entering the TM Contest in hopes to get their wish fulfilled. But there's alwas a twist. What I really like about this game is the fact that it 's replayable. You'll spend loads of time exploding opponents and exploring the areas. While playing the PS2 TM Black, I found myself glued in front of the TV screen for hours beating the game with all the different cars and finding out their twisted endings. It's fun just to watch cars blow up (even if it may be yours). I think this game has a good chance of being the most popular launch game on the PSP. Expand

    Fun for a while, then it gets VERY boring and repetitive. Bad replay value and the extra modes all suck.
