Another series that they wanted to bring back. So many fans from a decade ago have been waiting to see it done. And now we can get our hands on it, is it any good?
The wait is over. Twisted Metal has returned after a decade. The game is exclusive to the PS3 and even comes with a code for Twisted Metal Black.
So after being super hyped I went out and picked it up. Get home put it in the system and I have a grin. Unfortunately it didn't last. When I went into story mode I couldn't pick a character. But you start as Sweet Tooth so that was okay.
His story was pretty interesting, twisted and dark. But it was pretty short. When I finished with him the game said 33%, shit. As you play your character is no longer tied to the car. You can put them in the different cars you have unlocked, pretty nice.
But then the newness starts to wear off and you realize you dropped $60 for a game with only 3 characters for the story. Sure you can put them in other cars, but half the fun of Twisted Metal was all the crazy stories and characters. You will can use Sweet Tooth, Mr. Grimm, and Dollface. If you play online you can also use Preacher's gang. But they are using an online pass so buying it used is a waste and getting it as a rental only gives you half a game. In the game you can switch out your vehicle to let it heal and take advantage of the stat change. Good idea there. And I do say vehicle because as you play through you will have cars, trucks, semis, a motorcycle, and eventually a tank.
Also new this time around are game modes. You have your classic deathmatch. But thin you add Electric Cage, kind of like a headquarters style play. You fight in a selected area that moves and you take damage for not being in it after your buffer runs out. There is also Juggernaut, you have a badass semi that spawns enemies. You destroy the semi then you kill off the cars that are left. This one is kind of fun. And you add Deathrace, exactly what it sounds like. You go from point A to point B. The fun comes in when you find there is no second place. You can kill of the other cars or just try to out run them, but you have to cross the line first or you explode. There is a challenge mode, nothing really special there. And online, but big surprise signing on is a nightmare.
So overall kind of disappointing, I guess they were counting on multiplayer keeping people happy. Maybe they can add something to it by DLC to redeem it but I doubt it.
So that brings me to my verdict, rent it. If there is a major price drop go for it, but until then a rent is enough time to play it and be done with it. Sadly the Twisted Metal Black voucher is the best thing about the game.
I guess they decided we just weren't hyped enough.
Let me just start by saying, "Holy Shit!!!"
Sweet Tooth busts out a sick ass Mech and brings some hell to Dollface. But two can play that game. The chance to play as a bad ass mech in this game brings it up to a whole other level for me. I was just short of drooling when I saw this. If they offer this for everyone the game is going to be insane. Hell if the mechs are only available in one mode of play I'll be fine with that. This is a franchise that I have loved from the start and they are bringing out all the tricks to be relevant again.
What else could we ask for? Can you think of anything missing? Or do you think they are trying to hard?
Here is some talk and some gameplay for those of you looking forward to Twisted Metal's reboot.
You can see teamplay on a semi and helicopter combat He talks about some game types including Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Free-for-all.
But if you are a fan of the Twisted Metal series from years ago you already know how insane the game got alone or with a friend, but now you can get into 16 player combat online. That just makes the game that much more interesting. You will recognize character's like Sweet Tooth, Darkside, Axel, and Mr Grimm but this time around you can put the drivers into different vehicles.
If you are new to the series you have really missed out. This is as over the top as you can imagine car combat. You have shotguns and machine guns, but you will also have all kinds of missiles and other massive weapons to destroy the cometition with. In previous games there were areas to each map that could be destroyed including all types of monuments, hopefully we'll be seeing more of that.
I can't wait for a chance to play this. How about you? Do you have a favorite character? Or weapon? And what about the multiplayer, are you ready to work as a team? Or would you rather go all out last man standing style? Let's here it. And as always, Don't be a jimmy.

The game has been on the way for a while, now we get a date.
Any fans of the series?
Car combat is all kinds of twisted fun and this time we'll be doing it online. With a capture the flag mode that let's you drag the rival gangs leader across town be ready for a brutal game. You'll also be able to mix and match drivers on different vehicles, that will be a major change. I would honestly prefer that Sweet Tooth stayed in the Ice Cream truck, and Doll Face in her Semi, but I guess they want to give players more options. Adding areil combat is a nice bonus though.
But what do you think? How many of you have never tried the series? What was your favorite kill? Let's hear it, don't be a Jimmy.
