Twisted Metal Review.
The game currently Cost 59.99$ and if you get it during this run you will also get PS2’s twisted metal black downloadable from PSN.
If you preordered the game you get Axel as a downloadable vehicle. In about a month he will release to those who did not download the game.
So if you have never played a twisted metal game before here is the description of the game. The game is based on a fictional tournament called twisted metal. Each character is in a death match against their opponents in order to win. The prize for this tournament is one wish but there Is always a twist.
The basic gameplay is you drive a car/helicopter around and pick up weapons on the map to destroy your opponents. you also have a special weapon that recharges every now and than and have health scattered across the map. Plus with every kill the driver/gunner of each vehicle gets ejected you may run them over and earn health/weapon rewards depending on which you kill.
This twisted metal moves away for the originals as in this one you have 3 Chapters each with 6 levels in them each getting gradualy harder. The first six are Sweet Tooth's Story, The next six are Mr.Grimm's story and the final six are Dollface's story.
Most of the rounds are Deathmatch modes/varients however there are 3 boss battles and 3 races.
heres the interesting thing the story difficulties actualy do get harder. Normal mode is the easiest mode. Hard mode is next in line and twisted is pretty much the most insane challenge in the game (such as no checkpoints in boss battles)
The story itself is each character has their wish they want so they compete in the contest. After they win they get their wish granted but it never turns out the way they expect it.
Well heres a fun one. The online multiplayer puts you in servers up to 15 players and you can play several modes such as Death match. Hunted, Last man standing, Team death match, Team hunted, Team last man standing and Nuke mode. You start out with only three cars at the beginning and must unlock more as you level up.
Death match: The mode is simple you want to kill everyone you see. you earn points for doing so weapons are scattered on the map.
Hunted: The goal in this one is to Become the Hunted. The hunted is a character that everyone sees on their HUD but for every kill he earns a point. Inorder to become the hunted you must kill the current hunted and by doing so you receive the a point.
Last man standing: This is death match but you only have one life. do not waste it.
Team Death match: You and your teamates want to kill the other teams players.
Team Hunted: each team has a hunted who for every kill earns his team a point. if you kill the enemy hunted you recieve a point. if the hunted kills the enemy hunted your team recieves two points. When the enemy hunted or your teams hunted is kill someone will be randomly selected to replace them.
Team Last man standing: You and your team have a shared ammount of lives. so does the enemy team The goal is destroy the enemies and leave none alive. once you or the enemy run out of shared lives you will no longer be able to spawn after death,
NUKE MODE: there are 3 innings. you either start out as attackers or defenders. If attacking you must capture the enemy fraction leaders which appear on screen after doing so you must find a launcher and scarifice them to the machie which than launches a nuke and you must fly this nuke into the enemy statue. If you accomplish this your team recieves a point.
1 point for hitting the statue
1 bonus point if you hit the statue 3 times in your attacking phase which brings the score to 4 points for the round.
and 1 point if you succesfully defend the statue from being hit during a round.
The team with the most points at the end of the three innings wins.
This game allows you to go to Twistedmetal.com and customize your cars skin. you can use the web based one they have or actualy download the cars template take it to photoshop and use your GFX skills to make it nice and pretty.
Pros: The game works really well and the controlls are smooth. It gives you a offline challenge mode to practice your driving and figthing skills with each car.
The story may be short with only 18 levels but it sure is sweet.
The game allows you to customize your own skin online and download it to your game.
One of the only car combat games out there lately.
Cons: Multiplayer is currently glitchy but David Jaffe has been keeping us well informed of what is going on. However when your in a match. the experience is amazing.
Overall rating. 9/10

Its a 9/10 for me but i gave it a 10/10 because im so god damn sick of FPS games im going nuts. Thats the only shit i see. SHOOTER SHOOTER SHOOTER, Damn it's good to have some change. I feel bad for people who still have a 360, at least we have a little bit of variety.

Sounds like if Saints Row the Third was 100% focused on car and multiplayer gameplay.

Yes the story actualy hints at a sequel however. Eat Sleep play decided to do small type games for the ipod and such. so David Jaffe left wanting to make bigger games
