I'm not the biggest fan of TM PS3. I can't explain my dislike for the game, but it just doesn't ring true with my love for the classic TM games.

I recently played the free TM: Black download that came with TM PS3, and even playing that with the story absent (ALL cutscenes were removed in the PAL version of the game) TM: Black is so much more fun, simple and yet dynamic compared to the new game.

Reading that statement, Jaffe doesn't sound overly amazed at the reaction to the new TM. Almost apologetic. I still love how open he is to the fans though! It's like we see his real thoughts instead of just a guy who makes games and has to keep his mouth shut about things. From just reading about his idea for a digital-only Twisted Metal title i'm actually excited. The new TM seemed outdated and tired, whereas this new format would be fresh and allow for many expansions and bite-sized fun play!

I would love a new twisted metal. But i dont understand why every one hates it so. I belive most of its failure is due to its craptastic marketing and advertising

I just don't enjoy the game, regardless of how it has done commercially.
I LOVE the old Twisted Metal games... there's just something about this one that stops me from loving it...

Truth be told. I haven't even played the game in a while and I don't know why. I actually enjoyed it a lot when I got it and I just stopped playing for other games.

Quite a while ago to be honest. It's nothing to do with the firing mechanics or the weapons. My dislike for the game is more to do with the overall atmosphere, the match types and the story.

I don't use gaming forums very often, my friend, but thanks for pointing me in the direction of more Twisted Metal fans!

I'll probably revisit it sometime and enjoy it just as much as you have. It just doesn't rekindle that lovely nostalgia as much as I'd hoped it would. Maybe that's mostly down to the fact that the story is so 'linear' in the sense that you don't choose from a roster of vehicles/characters like the old games. And I feel the match types over complicated things and marred the fun of the simple deathmatch rounds of old

I thought the game was an utter blast. Yes, the stories sucked bad, but I got over it. Once I finished single-player I never touched it again. This game was made for the multiplayer anyway. That part of it I thought was insanely fun. Mainly the team matches. I thought the leveling system was great as was the weapons/vehicle upgrades. Once they got all the glitches patched out, that is.

Unfortunately ever since I platinumed it way back in April, I haven't touched it. I just burned myself out on it
