    Twisted Metal Letdown? - I hoped for more and got less

    Everyone and their dragons are hyping Twisted Metal. I got the demo yesterday and played the training, challenge mode and online. The first thing that came through my mind is; WTF am I driving? The all of the vehicles feels like floaty butter except one, the heavy truck drives like a tank. The weapon felt weak, pew pew missiles and the specials are surprisingly even weaker. The explosion effects made me chuckle, really, "thatīs all?" was what went through my mind. And how the weapon changing system worked out took down the gameplay flow a big deal.

    Let me sum it all up, 60$ for this is not justified. The gameplay just didnīt feel fun, more like frustrating and the graphic were somewhere between PSN title and lower.

    Just me right? Cuz I ainīt got taste and know how to have fun, right? For if not, WTF IS THIS GAME SO HIGH ON EVERYONES WISH LIST (mostly talking about my friends)?
    Hand-bra Jeans

    The exposure of the female's soft body. Whether you like it or not, being naked to the waist and the mismatch between the hard and thick jeans. The true essence is the union of girly and boyish styles.At the same time, the hand-bra forces even the current girls that lack shameful feelings to make an embarrassing pose. Depending on how it is seen, it also shows a form of eroticism by making it look like the girls are rubbing their own breasts.

    Well, the release date has been delayed until the end of March (in the UK at least), so hopefully this'll allow enough time to fix some of these issues.

    I liked it, the EU one will get delayed and will have the violent scenes deleted.
    Still, I loved it, and I didn't get to play online.

    I hope you're not saying that because you feel it's more challenging than the older games. It just might be that Twisted Metal games aren't for you anymore. I personally thought the demo was pretty dope. It's gonna take a little while for me to adjust to the controls because I haven't played a Twisted Metal game since TM 2. But it brings me back to my younger days and I've been waiting a long time for a TM game in HD.

    This is probably the franchise reboot I've least looked forward to. None of the footage released to date has floated my boat...a fresh coat of brown paint on a old white turd still makes it a turd.

    I'll download the demo and post my thoughts. I hope I'm wrong but I suspect it'll be somewhere between "Why did I bother?" and "Meh..."

    I'm loving this game, finally got into some multiplayer and it was a blast. I like how your not dead in one or 2 hits like most FPS games or even most multiplayers. This so far has been the most fun I've had in a multiplayer and I'm more of a singleplayer person. The single player was even fun and is not that hard to win, the vehicles with less armor is tougher to win with but it's not that hard. This is a day one purchase for me.

    I didn't like the control set-up at all. Hopefully, the full game allows it to be more customizable. I will play it with much aplomb if that is the case.

    Really? Black was the one that killed it for you? Damn, Black was my favorite in the series, and I am pretty sure this one will be similar to Black.

    Anywhore, I have been anticipating a new Twisted Metal since Head On for psp. Everyone has their own opinion, so maybe this game just isn't your type.

    i agree i never played twisted metal before and was really hyped as i love ps3 exclusives and i couldn't really get into the demo. if it gets good reviews tho i'll probably pick it up anyway as i attribute a large amount of my let down to the fact i had no idea what the hell was going on lol

    Sure enough...I'm going with "Why did I bother?"

    Demo won't start, the clock just keeps rotating in the bottom-left corner. Quit Game > Hard system crash twice...awesome so far.
