    It's nice to see PS2 still getting some love, even if it is a port of a PSP game. Still for a 20 dollar port, this little collection kicks some ass.

    First of all, the PSP version has been refined with obvious PS2 dual stick controls and includes some new levels.

    There is also the Lost Levels which were part of what was supposed to be a sequel to TM Black. What surprised me was the history behind the game. The game starts with a cool shot of Sweet Tooth looking Depressed while story of the game's development scrolls up. I had no idea that the reason the game was scrapped was because 6 of the team members were killed in a plane crash while on a ski trip. The game was scrapped, but the team received a letter in the mail asking that the game be completed, and it was signed by the 6 members. They chalked it up as a prank in poor taste, but they included the incomplete game with this little collection. Aside from the story elements missing, the game is all there, with coop and single-player mode. There is also a mode where you walk around as Sweettooth, in the assylum that all the guys were in prisoned (in TM Black). The location, which was supposed to be a part of The Lost, it littered with a lot of trivia about the TM series.

    Some of the extras on the disc are interviews with the team from TM and the History of the game, as well as the never-seen cheesy live-action endings from the First TM game. Classics, hahaha. You also get a small art book, and free download of a compilation of the TM music. Overall a very cool little package for 20 bucks.

    It's nice to play TM again, and I really hope that Sony brings out another game for PS3.. with the same dev team of 1,2 and Black, of course.

    PS2's putting out some awesome titles for a system that's been replaced... Head-On is definitely in my want list along with the Ratchet & Clank port and now MGS Essentials. Most of my reasons for wanting a PSP are eliminated with a few of those titles. (Now port the Megaman remakes and I'm set)

    I still like having the portable versions, and appreciate the 20 dollar price tag for a port.

    Don't forget that Silent Hill Origins will also be getting a port soon :)

    yeah, I read that. Very exciting. Well except for the 2009 part. But hopefully it will really take advantage of the system. Destructable environments and more chaos, with people running around. They might as well go the extra mile and do what they did to Sweet Tooth in Black.. It would be awesome if all the cars could Transform.

    I always loved the Twisted Metal games, it's been ages since I've played any of them.

    I don't love Twisted Metal. Quite the opposite.

    I just like Jaffe as a designer and as an industry personality.
