Twisted Metal movie being made by Crank co-director

Crank and Crank: High Voltage were fun but extremely dumb movies. Gamer starring Gerard "Leonidas" Butler and Michael "Dexter" Hall was pretty much garbage with small glimmers of joy here and there. And for some reason, I'm r...

Review: Twisted Metal  photo
Review: Twisted Metal
by Jim Sterling

Twisted Metal 2 is one of the greatest videogames to ever grace the original PlayStation, and that's an undeniable scientific fact. Though my personal relationship with the series has been a spotty affair, my love for TM2's inimitable blend of sadistic humor and car-on-car violence has carved a bloody hole in my heart, one that's remained gaping for years. 

A new Twisted Metal for the PlayStation 3 has been a long time coming, and arrives not a moment too soon. However, while it remains at heart a classic example of vehicular battery, its misinformed attempts at modernization cause a little concern.

The latest chapter in the series, from Eat Sleep Play, indicates that some franchises really ought to stick to what they know.

David Jaffe wants you to shoot his truck

Twisted Metal: A different kind of multiplayer game photo
Twisted Metal: A different kind of multiplayer game
by Samit Sarkar

Unless you count the continued popularity of Mario Kart, we’re a long way from the ’90s heyday of car combat games. Modern multiplayer combat primarily concerns games in which people shoot each other, but David Jaffe, Scott Campbell, and their team at Eat Sleep Play are aiming to amend that phrase to end with the words “with cars.” They’re working on a new Twisted Metal title, the first original one to hit consoles since Twisted Metal: Black launched on the PlayStation 2 a decade ago.

Twisted Metal differs from shooters in more ways than the “shooting people while driving” part. In some respects, it’s more accessible than those games; in others, it’s even more impenetrable.
