Twisted Metal (PlayStation 3)

 

Once upon a time, a man named Calypso regularly held a tournament. It was a grisly contest of vehicular carnage in which entire cities were razed as the competitors destroyed everyone and everything around them in their mad quest for victory. But for...

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...

Outside of the 4-player split-screen, the real draw here is the 16-player online matches. Unfortunately, the servers seem to be having some serious issues with matchmaking, but if you're lucky enough to find a game, and more importantly, stay in it for...

Imagine welcoming back an old friend. Just his presence, and the fiery hair upon his head, brings back memories of years past. As ever, his face is obscured by ingenious humour, for any guy who trundles round with a clown mask on is a hoot....

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...

Twisted Metal is stuck in second gear, trying to evolve beyond the simplistic (but enjoyable) nature of its mechanics. It introduces new ideas while attempting to please hardcore fans of the series at the same time, and this middle-of-the-road approach...

Vehicular control is the same as ever: tight and ever unrealistic. Want to pull off a 180 while in midair and fire napalm into a crowd of enemies behind you? Go for it. Need to cut a hairpin turn while cruising along at maximum speed to elude the...

Blazing guitar riffs? Check. Blistering speed? It's there. Cool destructible environments? You bet. All the major trademarks of the Twisted Metal formula are here, and they work extremely well, even in the most hectic moments.

There are plenty of little nods to previous games throughout this new version of Twisted Metal, but I crave more cheats. I would love to have a magnet effect while driving that would allow me to easier get the game's powerups spread throughout the map....

Fast-paced action ; Online is a blast ; Weapons are fun to use ; Excellent arenas

Online has growing pains ; Only three main characters

Before PlayStation was a household name, I can remember the original system launch; walking into a store shortly after the PSOne hit shelves and seeing a game with a demented clown face attached to the top of an ice cream truck. This game truly screams...

The latest version of the car combat staples offers more than just mindless destruction, though there's plenty of that too.

Story-mode levels effortlessly add depth, so it’s surprising how cluttered multiplayer can feel. The simplest variants, like free-for-all or team elimination, are as painlessly fun as they’ve always been. But the new “Nuke Mode” involves capturing...

Review: Twisted Metal

 

Twisted Metal is the longest running Sony-exclusive franchise and during its seventeen year run, the franchise has had its ups and downs. The series' last entry was Twisted Metal: Head-On in 2005 and the last console original entry was Twisted Metal...

It's not quite a triumphant return, but when the multiplayer works, it turns into a sublime online shooter.
