Twisted Metal: Black

Fragland
26 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Years ago, Sci’s Carmageddon broke open the car combat genre that up until then hadn’t really had much attention.

  • Cons: Harsh learning curve, Not meant for kids

  • Excerpt: TMB is the return to the shadow days of Twisted Metal; back when the series had more in common with movies like Seven and Silence of the Lambs than with an Abbot and Costello horror comedy. It is dark. It is menacing. Face it, this game is evil incarnate. Don’t believe me?

Twisted Metal: Black

TotalPlayStation.com
10 July 2001
  • Excerpt: I have to admit, I'm not a fan of the car combat genre. Sure, I understand the attraction, and I can completely appreciate the games for what they are, but my interest was never really piqued by them. That's why it's so odd that I found myself so horribly addicted to Twisted Metal: Black.
