  1. Head-On is the first top-of-the-line multiplayer game designed for a handheld. It's vehicular combat at its finest. It's satisfying, but will leave you hungry for another bite.
  2. The single-player offering is incredibly fun, and the multiplayer bouts bring limitless depth and couldn't be much more contagious. [May 2005, p.128]
  3. 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.
  4. Great graphics, solid and familiar TM game play, and Wi-Fi online. How can you ask for more than that? It's goold old fashioned mayhem at it's best!
  5. It doesn’t deviate far from the typical formula. It doesn’t really need to. With tight controls, impressive graphics, a multitude of arenas and vehicles, and online play, this game is easily recommendable.
  6. The game takes the thrilling aspects of the finest title in the lineup, "Twisted Metal 2," shrinks it down onto the portable screen and adds some fantastic multiplayer modes to boot.
  7. Seeing and playing this game makes me absolutely drool over the prospect of Incognito reviving other classics like "Warhawk," "Downhill Domination" and "War of the Monsters" on the PSP.

    Just fun to play. Fans of the series will be more then satisfied and newcomers will be amazed at how addictive this game is.
  9. 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.
