During the early days of the Playstation and Playstation 2, one of the games that helped sell the systems was "Twisted Metal". The game focused on vehicular mayhem, giving players a good taste of the directions video games were heading.

Over the years people wanted a new "Twisted Metal" game, and fans finally got the first game in four years with the reboot simple titled, "Twist Metal".

Unfortunately, the hype machine wasn't enough for "Twisted Metal".

By Eat Sleep Sony, and possibly by Jaffe himself.

Launching half made single player, and broken online games is never acceptable.
Launching this for a legacy franchise like Twisted Metal makes it doubly worse.

Of course I'm sure there are people that will disagree with me. I mean, why wouldn't they when they enjoy broken online games with half made single player modes.

I wouldn't have even known it had been released when it was if it weren't for N4G user MD playing it all the time. Sony didn't even have an ad campaign for it. Sabotaged their own game.
