The Twisted Metal series has made a dramatic impact on PlayStation owner’s lives for years. Now Sony’s longest running franchise is back and better than ever. PlayStation 3’s Twisted Metal brings fans from around the world that same sinister humor, fast-action game play and the immeasurable assortment of lethal vehicles as the series past. Twisted Metal is matchless, it is mysterious, and when you play through the game you will witness things that you will never see in another title. Sit back and let the turmoil unfold in this vehicular combated game!
Twisted Metal’s campaign brings motive to the corruption. Atop his penthouse loft, deranged lunatic Calypso holds an annual Twisted Metal tournament. Within the tournament, contestants fight to the death, and in the end Calypso grants the winner one wish. Calypso’s need for chaos and obliteration can only be clenched by the spilling of the other contestant’s blood.
The player takes the role of three separate characters in single player mode. Each character is set with their own dark story which unfolds after a number of rounds including as much annihilation, mayhem, and demise you can handle. The player will unlock the mystery behind these crazed characters as they progress through the story.
The multiplayer in Twisted Metal is some of the best multiplayer you will ever play. This is not your average game, so you won’t be experiencing your average multiplayer. With as much destruction you cause in the single player story you can double up on that carnage for the multiplayer experience. The player has the option to take part in a 2-16 online multiplayer match or play multiplayer through split-screen. There is truly no limit when it comes to massacring your friends.
There are a vast variety of multiplayer modes which include Death Match, Last Man Standing, Nuke and so many more. I found Nuke to be the most interesting. This original mode is a perverse take on capture the flag. It is your team’s goal to capture the leader and drag them back to your base. You then sacrifice the enemy leader by launching a missile into the air which will hit the other team directly.
Twisted Metal turns out to be one of the hottest PS3 exclusives out there. Its unique stance on a driving game leaves players in awe. It might not be the kind of game you want to play with your children; however, you can use it as a great way to let out aggression lingering deep inside your soul. The destruction, gameplay, and twisted storylines are not something that is seen every day on any game. I would consider this game a definite buy for all PlayStation3 owners!
