Cel Damage HD launching on PS4, PS3, and PS Vita April 22

Replay an enhanced version of the 2001 vehicle combat game for $10.

Cel Damage HD, a graphically-enhanced version of the original 2001 release, is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita this Tuesday, April 22.

Cel Damage HD will cost $10, and as a Cross-Buy title, you’ll be able pay once to play it on all devices. In addition, PlayStation Plus members can get the game for a 10 percent discount during the first week following release.

Originally developed by Pseudo Interactive for Xbox, PlayStation 2, and GameCube, Cel Damage was a vehicle combat game much like Twisted Metal, only with cel-shaded graphics and a Looney Tunes approach to weapons and gameplay. It was not well received by GameSpot at the time, getting a score of 5.7 in our review.

Cel Damage HD will feature six playable characters, 13 arenas, 10 cars and more than 30 power-ups. It will be developer Finish Line’s first game.

Yay another remake, or port, or carry over. Sony, give me something good that I haven't already played or can't play on another console and I will buy a PS4. Why spend money when you can play it somewhere else or have already played it?

This game was great, everyone at my house loved it. In my opinion the bad scores were from people expecting more Twisted Metal type gameplay where you're trying to survive. This game plays more like Unreal Tournament, you die fast but respawn quickly. Things happen quick in this game with over the top abilities.

I don't know why many people here thought this game sucked, I thought it was a humorous and fun to play. it was also a nice alternative to something like Mario Cart if you didn't own a Game Cube.

No shit! I remember this game was the most polished game ever back then. Do you know why it's called Cel Damage? Because it uses Cel Shaded technology, in other words the cartoonish graphics. I was crazy about this game and fascinated by its graphics

Well since there is no Twisted Metal for Playstation 4 or PSvita. I guess this will have to do.

I played this game with my younger brother a lot on the original Xbox we had. I remember really having fun with it, I don't know if my nostalgia for this game is worth 10 bucks though, considering I probably only liked it at the time because I was 13.

I can see we are now entering the same phase in game as we did in movies 10 years ago: Rehash/reboot/remakes of previous titles. Not good for gamers.

I've had this game for my XBox for years. I don't remember playing it much though. With all the other $1 games on PSN this weekend, I doubt I'll be getting this one.

@rasterror at least they are games on my x1 they have got two games in the past month(not including multy plat titles) and now that spiderman is postponed it is getting its next game on the 20th of next month . So who cares if you don't like them other people do and at least it has games coming every week and that is better than what my x1 offers right now.

Compared to the current PS4 offerings, it'll fit in just fine.

With Sony's financial issues and recent developer lay offs - those 'exclusives' will be few and far in-between.

@Sevenizz  30 games rated 75 or higher are available on the PS4.  Less than 20 are on the Xbox One.  Not to mention the X1's piss poor performance.  If you bought a X1, you're an idiot.

@Sevenizz  Awwww... is someone jealous that their system sucks and has no games?  How cute.

Kinect Rivals got decent reviews. But look who I'm talking to - someone who hasn't played it.

@Lacerz @Sevenizz  Damn,I wasn´t aware that over 90% of those games are multiplats and several of them ports of older games.

How sad, that you feel the need to lie about made up numbers.  If only the weak Xbox could match these games, or Sony's 3 million sales lead.  Sad.  Pathetic.  You.

@Sevenizz  The only idiots I know of are the ones that try to do what a controller can do faster by saying "Xbox..."


You bought a gimp system.  Love it.  Treasure it.  Live with it.  You're the idiot for wasting your money on sheet.  A dumb fanboy.  An idiot in life.  An idiot forever.  That is you.

Gee, making up numbers is fun!

And if you bought a PS4, you're a marketing shill...oh, and an idiot.
