Since then, the series had some PlayStation Portable releases, a false start as a PlayStation Network title, and an aborted stint as a multiplayer-only title. On October 4, 2011 Twisted Metal will hit the PlayStation 3 as a full-fledged game with single-player and multiplayer modes. I recently saw and played three multiplayer levels and had an absolute blast. While I can’t speak on the single-player mode, the multiplayer action left me with a blissful sense of frenzy -- exactly what I want from Twisted Metal".
