Twisted Metal World Tour is not a bad game on the PSP but not the best I've ever played. There's not much of a story to it but can be quite enjoyable in parts.
The story is a little thin on the ground and there's not much to it. Basically throughout the game you have to blow up cars. Each car has their own special attributes and attacking capabilities along with machine guns etc. There are also weapons you can collect along the way. In each different stage there is a bonus level in which you can unlock other cars or characters.
There is a single player mode or multiplayer mode. The single player mode is not great. It features about 7 stages and is way too short and you can complete it pretty quickly.
However the game does get more addictive when you play online through wi-fi. It plays in a similar way to single player mode whereby you have to blow up a load of cars and blow each other up, but this time it's with real people. There are many options you can choose from as well in this mode. You can select deathmatch where the last man standing lives and fox hunt, collector where you collect a coin after you kill someone. With all these selections you can also play in teams. The game will support up to six players in any one go. There are not many problems with multiplayer mode and the gameplay is pretty smooth with no delay.
The graphic with this game are some of the best on the PSP. Although the details are not fantastic the explosions are great, and even better with the sound up and added to it.
The controls are easy enough to master although it's a bit harder with the analog stick. The default control scheme is probably the best and easiest to use.
This isn't a bad game but can get tedious pretty quickly and the single player mode doesn't offer much replay value at all.
A much-upgraded remake of SingleTrac/Incogs killer car combat series, based on the next-generation engine of Twisted Metal: Black to rearrange the characters and stages of the hit PlayStation edition.
