The gameplay still works remarkably well. As far as presentation goes, it's on and off at times. The Twisted Metal Black levels look awesome, with lots of explosive detail. However, there's no option to adjust the brightness level, so they may be too dark. The Head-On levels look very good by comparison, faithfully translated from the PSP edition. However, fuzziness does set in from time to time, making the game look like a second-generation PS2 title rather than a current-gen one. Overall, though, it runs smoothly, not really lagging from its sixty-frames-per-second pace.
While the game could've easily been a classic with better graphics and online options, Twisted Metal Head-On: Extra Twisted Edition is still worth checking out. It hauls all kinds of ass with its various content, its behind-the-scenes goodies and, obviously, its insanely fun car combat. Since Twisted Metal for PS3 won't be out for awhile, you'll want to spend some quality time applying Head-On directly to your console.
