    The best car combat game ever made. Period.

    Twisted Metal 2. If I had $5 for every hour my best friend and I spent playing this game years back, I probably wouldn't need to have a job right now. This is one of the most addicting games I have ever played. After all... Read Full Review

    Awesome game, best of the series as far as I can tell.

    I spent countless hours playing friends and beating the game with all the characters in the 1990's. Came back and started to play again last year on PS3 and the game holds up. I love the simplicity yet there is tons o... Read Full Review

    Non-stop fun.

    I first played this game when I was 8 years old on a hotel TV with a game controller attached to it. I completely sucked at it, but I was instantly hooked. Fast forward 12 years and here I am still playing it, loving eve... Read Full Review

    Twisted Metal 2 is a good game but after Twisted Metal 1 is quite repetitive.

    Twisted Metal is a high action car-combat game at it's finest. There are those of us who are still playing the original Twisted Metal. Then there are those who have gotten bored of it. The game is good enough, we are jus... Read Full Review

    So good, it can stand up to Twistd Metal: Black and call itself better.

    Twisted Metal 2 is arguably the best in the series. It's like the original beauty got remixed into a super-ballistic bad-out special edition with more cars, levels, cheats, and storys that are actually good! The game is... Read Full Review
