Is vehicular mayhem still relevant or does that exit lead to a dead-end road?

not that bad of a score....the story and the controls i guess is the downfall of the game...but i picked it up last night and got destroyed online....but once anybody master the controls im sure ill be fine(or know how to drive)...Enjoy the game everyone

girlwithturn4238d ago

God, just change controls in the menu. Stop trying to deceive players.

rdgneoz34238d ago

Yah. In the demo, I hated the default controls. But after setting them to racing, was soo much easier and more fun to play. Waiting for my copy from Amazon to come.

acemonkey4238d ago

im just sayin what the review and what most reviews are saying about the controls....stop taking this to GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

smashcrashbash4238d ago

Yeah, racing controls are the best. Don't know why people just don't change them to suit.

Legionaire20054238d ago

They more positive things in this review than the negative, crazy how they gave it a 8.1!!! I was expecting a 9. This reviewer make every game look like their bad the way how talks. Twisted Metal is more than that same old Call of Duty with the same tired old engine. What other has 4 player splitscreen that could make games last? Not much. It had a steady framerate than most games out there with all that action. If this is a system seller David Jaffe got to make another one someday.

All I ask for is a new Twisted Metal that allows flat screen & PSVR2 cross play that also supports a wheel.
Would be heaven.

Babadook762d ago

Wow. I like the idea of VR twisted metal with a wheel.

Rebel_Scum62d ago

They need to get the enemy AI balance right. Thats what made 2 the best in the series. Black was abysmal in that dept.

neomahi62d ago

You don't. Do sequels. If you've gotta reboot, might as well do a new IP. God of War is the only game I can say that did a successful reboot

TiredGamer62d ago (Edited 62d ago )

Isn’t the new GoW just a sequel technically?

I personally think they can leverage the roots of the series. The original TM in 1995 took place on Christmas Eve 2005, and it was the 10th contest in history. Why not “reboot” the franchise by making a prequel of sorts showing the origin story of the series and maybe linking all the future games in a brilliant way. Seems like such an obvious idea to leverage old with the new (kind of look how Doom 2016 did with its lore).

Knightofelemia61d ago

Just make it a good game Twisted Metal has it's fan base.


PlayStation confirm they are working on Twisted Metal series

The rumours were legit. The Twisted Metal franchise is coming back, Sony
officially announced at CES 2022.

NecrumOddBoy625d ago

I hope this is camp as all hell.

bouzebbal624d ago

They should have made Destruction All star with a Twisted Metal skin as launch title.. With some more content of course.

NecrumOddBoy623d ago (Edited 623d ago )

Rumor mill is that the team used All Stars as a test bed game to make a PS5 Twisted Metal in the future. No idea why they made this though. Total miss and it could hurt them in the end. Twisted Metal is really awesome. I honestly hope they take this series the Forza Horizon route. Maybe a big open world like a destroyed city in an apocalyptic setting. Still can have arenas and races, battles etc, but also add RPG elements and quests, challenges etc.

Dirtnapstor623d ago

Agreed. I am mildly surprised they did not do a Twisted Metal iteration vs DAS. Could have easily reskinned everything, no?

sourOG624d ago

Agreed. I’m playing serious Sam now and I think it’s awful in a great way. I’m enjoying it.

Majin-vegeta625d ago

Looks like the new game is pretty much confirmed now.

Bobertt624d ago

Idk David Jaffe had said he has seen stuff about the TV show but Sony has never told him anything about a new game. I find it hard to believe they would not tell the creator of the franchise they were going to make a new game.

Army_of_Darkness623d ago

Sony owns the franchise and Jaffe is no longer associated with them anymore, so Sony doesn't have to inform him on anything really...

NapalmSanctuary622d ago

...says f2p with Lucid developing. Might wanna keep them expectations low.

isarai625d ago

I hope it follows the gameplay style of hardware rivals, seriously that game was awesome to play

Godmars290624d ago

How about having to race through a destructible city with tons of people to mow down.

burnout with rocket launchers and ability to drive on skyscraper roofs or through office floors.

DarXyde624d ago

That sounds like Carmageddon meets Warhawk.

I'm iffy on reviving Twisted Metal personally. I replayed it on PS3 via PSOne classics because I loved the originals and I must say, these titles haven't aged well. We're now two generations removed from then, which was already 1-2 generations removed from the originals.

There needs to be some serious modernization efforts for these games to do well.

Godmars290623d ago

And what would be wrong with a "Carmageddon meets Warhawk" game? Pretty much what you'd want of a PS5 version of a PS1 title.
