Twisted Metal: Black
Playstation 2
Sony Computer Entertainment

Haven’t had the chance to get too far into this game yet, but what I’ve seen is extraordinary. You basically ride around in the vehicle of your choice, blasting things to hell. The graphics, which are dark and gothic, are mind-blowers, and the scenery, including destroyed cities and amusement parks, is creepy. If you are big into strategy games, this may not be your thing, because it’s mostly about blowing things up. If blowing things up is what gets you going, then get thee to this game. You can actually play the game as a skull-headed motorcyclist called Mr. Grimm, a very fine name indeed. I must sell my Playstation 2—it is ruining my life.
