E3 2011: Twisted Metal Hands On
It seemed like only yesterday that we had been enjoying one of our favorite franchises in Twisted Metal Black. One day however it was just gone and we hadn’t seen it since, till now. The all new Twisted Metal comes back with a bang sporting new visuals, modes and ways to play. We got a chance to check out the game for quite sometime at E3 and we were very pleased with the results thus far.
Twisted Metal offers that classic feel from the original but one of its biggest changes to note is the games accessibility. Easy to get into, easy to pick up and play while it still challenges fans of the series. The stage that I played in looked like a mall complex which scaled all the way to the parking lot on top of the building. Decent size for an eight player death match.
Vehicles ranged from a motorcycle all the way to a helicopter. Each player has standard machine gun, missiles and two specials. Although experiencing Sweet Tooth’s alt special which turns him into a walking robot is in a league of its own. Visuals were crisp gameplay was fast and frantic and I only became better with practice. Fans can expect tracks to have secret paths and weapons throughout them as well.
I didn’t know if I was going to care that much for this game until I to my hands on it and man did I change my mind rather quickly. Expect the game in fall 2011 for the PS3 and I will certainly be there awaiting to check out all it has to offer.
