The original name for the game (and series) was "High Octane". In addition, the endings were originally to be full motion video, as opposed to the text-based endings in the final game. The endings were filmed but not used, and a few vary in the details between the video and text versions. See more »
Those are the words that best sum this up -- it's got an attitude and gives a big F-you to all the other racing/destruction games out there. It's raw, energetic and blows up everything in sight.
In my opinion the sequel is actually better (the first sequel, that is) but this is still a great game and one of the first available for the Playstation when it came out... a decade ago! The years have really flown by.
Chances are if you were around back in '95 when this was released, you played it. It was the "Halo" or "GTA" of its day (almost, anyway) and has spawned a countless series of sequels, most of which aren't as good (some of which... are).
"Twisted Metal" is vicious and fun -- if your friend owns an original Playstation, chances are he owns this too; play it.
