    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?
  7. 50
    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.

The controls take a little getting used to, but the addition of dpad energy moves is one that is over due, even if some other functions require multiple buttons. The Story satisfies, but its not gonna win any awards. Deathmatch and Nuke are a blast, but online in general is a welcome break from the 5 second lives of call of duty. This game is easy to play, but skill is rewarded to players who can use the more advanced, lightly armored classes. I recommend learning the maps before trying some of the more speedy classes. A must own for PS3 players Expand

If you're a fan of theThis is some of the most brainless fun I've had in a game since SSBB. It's total beautiful chaos in all it's glory. If you're a fan of the originals I can't imagine you not enjoying it. The controls are good, the levels are incredible (Blackrock Stadium is insanely intense). My only criticisms are that I wish more of the original cast made it and the new Calypso looks kind of unimpressive. But even the live action cut scenes are deliciously cheesy. I'm greatly enjoying this mega-fun blast from the past. Expand

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
