Game description: Prepare for the next chapter in car combat. The latest installment in the Twisted Metal series, Twisted Metal Black, has Calypso returning to host another contest of wreckage and devastation, in which the victor is allowed to have one wish granted. Slip into the minds of insane contestants competing in over 20 deathmatch battlegrounds and nine single-player levels. Drive 14 inventive vehicles equipped with tons of weapons in a variety of multiplayer and co-op modes, and discover the horrifying tale behind each of these tortured souls.
The people who brought you the original Twisted Metal are back in black! The basis of the plot follows the same structure as in all the previous games: Calypso runs a car-based contest called Twisted Metal (though in the game the contest is never called that), in which the various characters compete risking their lives to claim the tournament's prize - any single wish they desire, no matter the difficulty, rarity or even reality of such wish.

|Small picture in menu is still a problem as well, seems as though pre-rendered cutscense do not render correctly when using non-native resolution. Other than this small glitch, game looks and sounds great at 60FPS 5X native resolution. Bios v 2.0 was used.
