Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that. It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece. I strongly recommend anyone...
We will never see a truly perfect game, but we'll se alot of games come close.
Twisted Metal 2 is one of those games. Even though its graphics aren't what they could have been, this is a truly outstanding game.
TM2 is a car combat game about a guy named Calypso. Every year he holds a contest. The last person to be left alive wins anything they wish.
The gameplay is what truly shines in TM2. The AI is perfect. They're never too cheap against you, but it's still challenging. To play, you need to drive around the levels and pick up weapons which you will use to kill your opponents. Some levels have hazards aswell. In New York, for example, you are playing on a bunch of sky scrapers. if you fall off, you're dead.
The sound is also amazing. Every weapon has the perfect sound effect, and the music, which was written specially for the game, fits each level perfectly.
The only real flaw in the game is that the graphics aren't the best they could've been. But the rest of the game is so great that they're easy to over look.
If you have a PS1 or PS2 then this game HAS to be in your collection. You'll be playing it for years
