Rating Summary
This is a combat racing game in which players assume the role of contestants battling for supremacy in a competition called Twisted Metal. As players drive through urban landscapes, they can use chainsaws, machine guns, flame throwers, and missiles to destroy other vehicles; races are highlighted by realistic gunfire and over-the-top explosions. Players can also choose to run over fleeing pedestrians, resulting in large blood-splatter effects. One mode's objective is to capture enemy leaders; a large blood trail is depicted as screaming characters are dragged behind players' vehicle. A variety of live-action sequences depict more intense acts of violence: a serial killer getting stabbed in the face with scissors; a woman holding a bloodied saw and severed head; a character stabbing hospital patients with a machete; a woman bleeding from the neck and lying on the street. The words “motherf**ker,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” can be heard in the dialogue.
