Twisted Metal 2 is the PC conversion of the PlayStation game, and as such shares most of the features of its predecessor – serious action, decent visuals and questionable long-term singleplayer gameplay within the eight environments. As a nice extra specific to the PC version, the game also includes multiplayer.

Snap167The gameplay in Twisted Metal 2 is basically a vehicular version of Doom. Dump a bunch of weird cars in a small-ish environment, littered with all types of power-ups and additional weapons, and let them blow the hell out of each other until one is left. There’s nothing in the design you haven’t seen before. Similar games like Carmageddon pulled off this design with slightly more flair, but there’s no denying Twisted Metal 2 has its own style and pretty well executed gameplay.

In the game’s favor, the bizarre vehicles are quite distinctive from one another, each with their own special attacks. Too bad the physics aren’t different from vehicle-to-vehicle – of course to do that there’d probably have to be some actual physics in the game. In the Twisted Metal world, cars handle like their in space. If the physics of Carmageddon were dropped into this engine, you’d have a pretty bloody fantastic game. But even with its lunar feel, Twisted Metal 2 is still a fun game to crash and burn in..

    Hey guys, So i got this to work on win10 64bit – I went into compatibility properties, clicked change settings for all users, i have it ran in win95 with reduced color mode of 16bit, run in 640×480, override high dpi, application, disable full screen optimizations, run as admin selected. Runs fine. Now if i can only figure out getting my controller to work with it 🙂

    Nvm if you go into controls you can turn on joypad and user a controller. Pretty dang sweet.. i hope the rerelease this someday and get some good 2 player going!

  9. dingaling says:

    Hey ya’ll, anybody having issues running it still? tried Thomas’s settings and no luck, trying to run the installer gives me the error “Error trying to change directory” to whatever directory the installer is in with the rest of the stuff. If I just run the .exe without installing i get to the main menu and can move the mouse pointer through the options but the keyboard or mouse don’t do anything when I click or hit any key. I’m running Win8.1 64 bits
