a game that eats other games for breakfast.

when i rented TWB, i did not know what to expect. i enjoyed twisted metal 2 but did not seem to enjoy the others as much (i can't say that about twisted metal 1 because i never played it). but after playing one level i was hooked.

first off, the game presents itself in a beautiful, dark, but still beautiful way. the character select was erie, and when i watched the bio movies i wanted to turn my head but could not stop watching it. everything is detailed, whether it be the car, the battlegrounds, or the driver, everything was top notch. if you pay attention to details you can see the weapons pop out off little compartments. or that explosions had flying shrapnel and ashes.

second, the handle was great. the controls take a little time, but once mastered you can easily navigate through the fast paced action on the screen. even the big trucks had nice handling.

third, the music is astounding. the dark and scary music sets the mood while you cruise around. but when you engage the enemy it changes to a fast paced score.

fourth, the story rocks so hard. o.k., maybe some dude busting insane prisoners out to compete for one wish is far fetched, but i like it. and the movies make you feel for the character.
when you read there little story's while the game loads it makes you want to beat the game with every person so you can get inside their head and know about their tragic past.

basically this is one of the best games for the ps2. after playing you won't help but come back for more twisted metal.

twisted metal black is the best twisted metal game ever by far, because it has tthe best grafics, and has one of the darkest plots. the charactors are incredibly detailed, welly developed. they kept the way how minion is a boss, during the tournament, and they have a fine addition in haveing online game play so you can duel and chat with your freinds... if you have any...

As a fan of the series Twisted Metal Black returns the series to its roots after being returned to Single Trac, the original developers. The game is darker than the previous games on the PS1 and alot of fan favorite characters return as well as new ones. This game is aimed at more adult players since its rated Mature instead of a Teen rating as were the previous games in the series. Each character has a story and an ending after you beat the game. Its fun to play with a friend in coop mode and you can even play against each other. The levels are huge and dark.
