"The Twisted Metal series will always have a place in PlayStation history. In the early years of the PSone, the successful vehicular combat game brought attention to a console trying to establish its identity. After creator David Jaffe left, the series floundered with two disappointing 989 Studios installments before returning with the hit Twisted Metal: Black. With Jaffe back in control of the series after a 10-year hiatus, how does the series stack up in a vastly different gaming landscape largely devoid of vehicular combat games?"
