Twisted Metal Review. Does it satisfy the sweet tooth of fans?
Posted by lcenteno
When I found out that Twisted Metal was finally getting a release for the Playstation 3 I was so excited. This excitement started to hinder when I found out that yet another developer called Eat Sleep Play was going to take charge of the development. In case you’re wondering fans, these are not the same developers of the first two Twisted Metal titles.
Graphics: Twisted Metal presents some amazing graphics. The explosions and backgrounds are top notch in quality. The arenas are very well suited for the atmosphere. Overall a nice presentation. Score: 9/10
Sound: We all know that Twisted Metal has been famous for it’s gothic/heavy metal like soundtrack. This newest addition aims to please their fans. The music tends to pump you up for every battle. The explosions are loud and insane, and the character voiceovers are pretty well done. Overall a nice suiting package for Twisted Metal fans. Score: 9/10
Gameplay: This can be hit or miss for some fans of the series. The controls for Twisted Metal are overall adequate. There is however one major issue here. There are too many controls. You can literally find yourself using every button and function on the PS3 controller when playing the game. While at times it can seem fun and addicting, there are other points especially in very hectic battles where you can find the controls overly irritating. It all depends on your taste. Score: 8.5/10
Issues: Twisted Metal much like Soul Calibur suffers from lack of story. You only play as four characters in story mode; Calypso, Mr. Grimm, Sweet Tooth, and Dollface. Unfortunately, the single player mode is a very short experience. Eat Sleep Play seemed to put all their elbow grease into making Twisted Metal a strictly multi-player game. Don’t get me wrong, I am not objecting to that in any way, but you can’t forget about the roots of what made a franchise so great. Sadly a lot of new age developers forget this aspect when receiving a project.
Final thoughts: Twisted Metal is a great game. Unfortunately, the lack of story makes this a game strictly for online addicts only. If you’re someone looking for the same twisted story lines and characters of Twisted Metal Black, then you may be in for a disappointment. This may upset a few longtime fans of the series.
Final Score 9/10
