Summary: I suppose I am somewhat of an idiot because I thought this was for a PS2 not a PSP when i ordered it. But it was years ago and I am just now writing to give a review. I sold it at a pawn shop the day after I got it.
Summary: Something is lost in the translation to hand-held as is the bane of many ports to handheld. This was one of my favorite games on PS1 but its just difficult to control on a handheld. The graphics are crisp and move along at a good clip. But control is so slow its frustrating.
Summary: Action is too fast, there's no time to enjoy blowing things up. Controls are the worst I've ever seen, I'm constantly hitting the brake to go into reverse but you cant do it that way, you have to hit the down button on the D-pad. Turbo is a double tap of the gas that I keep hitting by accident apparently cause it's constantly activating always at the wrong time. I have not enjoyed playing this game since the original and thats odd cause it's still all the same.
Summary: Twisted Metal is a game I really enjoyed when I first heard about it on PSone. It was fun, the characters were colorful, and the game play was great. Now for Head-On, the first 2 are still true, but the last one is not. The controls are way too sensative. That is the only knock I have on the game. If your a fan of the game and have great hand-eye coordination, you'll enjoy it.
Summary: I recently rented this game and at first i was pretty impressed. The graphics were great and I quickly became comfortable with the controls and the theme of ultimate destruction. But after the initial shock wore off, I regognized some problems. The story really has no plot(all you do is blow up the enemy cars-nothing else), and the replayability is not good. After having the game for 2 days, I began to get bored.
Summary: Having been a fan of both TM1 and especially World Tour (the sequel) on the original playstation i was really looking forward to this on the PSP (NB Sony's humdrum and monopolising stance towards the video games market helped me buy a gamecube so I never played Twisted Metal Black). Graphics are certainly smooth and accomplished, the intro sequence and end game anime movies are fun if a bit daft.
Excerpt: Twisted metal: head on is a driving game for the psp platform. It is basically a driving game which involves blowing other players up, think mario kart without the cuteness but with the realism of real life dynamics.
