    Twisted Metal: Head On isn't anything new, but amongst all the driving games on the PSP sometimes it is fun to play a racer than doesn't take itself so seriously.

    This one may mildly entertain those who've never been Twisted before, but series vets should simply drive away. [June 2005, p.109]

    I found the gameplay elements in Head On to get stale, even with the infrastructure gameplay in place.

    It represents a sublimely efficient means by which to enjoy competitive multiplayer an on all-new platform, doing so amid a shower of sparks. [June 2005, p.94]
  5. Stylised visuals and over the top physics make the game stand out, and the simple premise helps to cement it's pick-up-and-play strengths.
  6. I'm keenly aware that Twisted Metal has "an audience", and I'm not belittling the people who like it. Heck, I remember a time I found it enjoyable belting around loosing off missiles. But it's such a disposable form of entertainment.

    Flaws such as button layout, poor targeting and matches that go on forever make this disappointingly average. [Nov 2006, p.155]
