Twisted Metal

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Twisted Metal 2 is one of the greatest videogames to ever grace the original PlayStation, and that's an undeniable scientific fact. Though my personal relationship with the series has been a spotty affair, my love for TM2' s inimitable blend of sadistic humor and car-on-car violence has carved a bloody hole in my heart, one that's remained gaping for years. A new Twisted Metal for the PlayStation 3 has been a long time coming, and arrives not a moment too soon.

'Twisted Metal' Review (PS3)

About.com
4 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Twisted Metal Photo © Sony "Twisted Metal" has legions of fans who won’t care about frame rates and unrefined controls. They’ll just relish the opportunity to finally get back behind the driver’s seat of their favorite racing franchise. While I think there could have been more development to fine tune the controls and game types, all criticism falls away when one jumps into the multiplayer arena and turns the ignition.

Twisted Metal

Game Over Online
1 September 2012
  • Excerpt: It’s been a long wait for fans that have been patiently waiting for the chance to bask in the explosions, gunfire, carnage, and high-speed action that is the Twisted Metal series. Over a decade ago, Black gave the series a dark and gritty new look, and after Head-On changed things up again in 2005, it’s nice to be back to the dark and twisted world of Twisted Metal. This is one of the granddaddies of the modern combat racing genre.

Twisted Metal review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: The PlayStation brand is closely tied to a lot of big-name games, but it hasn’t been tied to many of them for quite as long as Twisted Metal. The gritty car-combat series – which stars a bunch of crazies in heavily armed vehicles who massacre each other for a chance at a wish from a dark trickster god – has been with Sony’s consoles since their earliest days.
  • Pros: Huge amount of variety to play around with, Story campaign hides a ton of hidden extras, Nuke is a cool addition to multiplayer
  • Cons: Multiplayer feels sparse next to campaign, Races tend to hinge on just picking the fastest car, The difficulty, if you prefer to breeze through games

Twisted Metal PS3 Review

Console Obsession
27 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Twisted Metal is currently the oldest franchise that is exclusive to the PlayStation brand that is still running to this day. The series’ first instalment was released way back in 1995 on the original PlayStation, which has been followed by numerous sequels over the years. Despite the simple title, the newest instalment is a fresh game and is in no way a remake.

  • Excerpt: Twisted Metal has always been a unique beast among games, essentially creating the car-combat genre back in 1995, and is Sony’s longest-running franchise. While there has been the occasional imitator, Twisted Metal practically owns the genre, being comparable to only previous entries in the series—most notably Twisted Metal 2 and Twisted Metal: Black .

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: I remember how I felt when Sony announced Twisted Metal at E3 2010: giddy, nostalgic, and excited. I've spent so much time with Twisted Metal in the past (the original two developed by SingleTrac), that it's one of the few titles to possess that rare magic that can transport me back to my early teens.

Twisted Metal

  • Excerpt: The original Twisted Metal was released over 15 years ago; it featured car combat, with the sole aim being to destroy other cars with a wide variety of heavy weapons.  Many gamers, including myself, have a soft spot for this franchise and for those like me the latest release was highly anticipated.
