This game blows away the previous Twisted Metals. 3 and 4 are a horrible mess, but this game picked the series back up. Gameplay is pretty much still the same in terms of fighting. The cars are more detailed and handle much better than they ever have. Top notch voice acting with well written stories and gameplay makes this a perfect game.
"Twisted Metal: Black" is just that - black. It's what you'd see if you
were on a bad trip of LSD while locked up in an insane asylum. The
"Twisted Metal" series was known for being the centerpiece of the
vehicular combat genre of video-gaming, where people in outfitted
vehicles engage each other in deadly tournaments. The most successful
and acclaimed entry in the "Twisted Metal" franchise, the Playstation
2's "Twisted Metal: Black," adds some much-needed darker elements to
what was in 2001, a waning series. It goes without saying that this is
the "Blackest," darkest, most violent and disturbing entry yet. The
developers went to great pains to create a "Twisted Metal" experience
that captured the violent fury and insanity that was only hinted at in
its predecessors. The game-play is greatly polished from previous games
in the series, and the controls are easy to use. The biggest
improvements, I feel, are the characters and the fully interactive and
beautifully rendered environments. The characters this time out are all
mental patients, participating in the Twisted Metal tournament in an
effort to have any wish of theirs granted. As you can see, the story
isn't much, but the deeply dark and twisted characters featured here
make up for it. Sure, some cheesy voice actor gives the characters some
life, but their stories range from insane to utterly horrific (i.e.,
"Twisted Metal" mascot, Sweet Tooth). If you wanted to know what went
on in an insane asylum, look no further than "Twisted Metal: Black."
This game would not go over well if it were released in these
times; it has everything that bothers people. You can shoot down
commercial planes, blow up buildings, eradicate churches, run
innocent people over, and play an assortment of nutty murderers.
The game even has suicide bombers, that strap themselves with dynamite, jump on a car and blow up. If you are sensitive to that kind of stuff, you'll hate this game. If, like myself, you know that it's all in good fun, and you like fighting games, you'll love this game. My favorite character is the child-murderer clown, Sweet Tooth. I also like the evil preacher and the cannibal. Get this game!
For its time, Twisted Metal Black was graphically competent.I happened upon it just recently, so naturally, with the latest generation of consoles, I was a bit biased. But the game gets way around that with its dark and gritty cinematic style, hectic yet smooth game play, and twisted characters that haunt the game with an ere appeal. The voice acting is first rate, especially by J.S. Gilbert, and the story telling leaves you begging for more. This was such a strong showing for the game they'd have to be crazy to not make another one along the same lines. I'd have to recommend it to all fans of the series, and even those who aren't familiar. It's an adrenaline filled romp through maniac chaos and destruction. Who doesn't love that?
Mortal Kombat, Grand Theft Auto, State of Emergency. These games are all
attacked by the media repeatedly for being "too violent." If anything,
Twisted Metal Black rises above these in terms of sheer horror. While
may come right at you with violence, it does not attack you mentally like
Twisted Metal does. The storylines revolve around the demented minds of
patients in an asylum and their quest to right a wrong. The game itself
one of the greatest on the Playstation 2 and without a doubt the best in
Twisted Metal series. About 15 characters in all, and each level gets
progressively more difficult, making the game an everlasting experience.
you're looking for a game to buy on your PS2, I highly suggest this

From the opening menu, the action has begun. Pick one of the loonies
start your massacre of the other loonies. Such a simple gameplay working
becoming one of the greatest experiences ever on a console. From the
storylines, to the over the top characters, this game reeks of
Maybe there's not a lot of blood or gore, but this game is packed with
images that will have you reeling in pain. Just watching what your
character goes through is enough to make you want to scream.
This game is a perfect 10 in my book.
Twisted Metal: Black is an awesome game. From the makers of the first two games, this blows the entire series out of the water. The movie graphics are very good and the movies themselves are outstanding. If you played the first four you'll remember the're semi-kid friendly. This one pulls out all the stops. Even the gory, sweary ones. You remember the plot: Mental asylum paitents are approched by a man named Calypso. If they participate in his car battling contest and win, they'll have one wish granted. Some are in it for redemption. Others, revenge. Eithier way it makes for great plot twists and top-notch gameplay.
