Twisted Metal: Head On - Extra Twisted Edition - A.V. Club Review

A nostalgic road trip, stuffed with game-design inside baseball.

Worth playing for: Twisted Metal's developers shot live-action endings for each character in the 1995 original, but scrapped the potentially embarrassing scenes. The super-cheesy clips preserved on this disc are the video-game equivalent of Troll 2.

Frustration sets in when: Trimmed-back multiplayer is a kick in the gut. But the PlayStation 2 never was all that great for deathmatches in the first place. The add-on modem and the PlayStation 2 multi-tap peripheral required to play four-player games were, and still are, a hassle.

The story is too old to be commented.
