RATED TEEN, WELCOME TO THE TWISTED WORLD WHERE THE DRIVERS ARE INSANE, IT'S THE ORIGINAL ULTIMATE AUTOMOTIVE COMBAT EXPERIENCE
Combining the road rage-inspired dark fantasies of Mad Max with a twist of campy black humor, Twisted Metal III is a worthy addition to the emerging car combat genre. Though the game is sure to be a hit with newcomers of the series, fans of the previous Twisted Metal games will find that TM III doesn't quite fire on all cylinders.
The story runs somewhere between Mortal Kombat and your wildest dreams of demolition derbies. But the paper-thin plot doesn't matter: you have a rad car and aren't afraid to use it. Whether you choose to control the monster truck driven by the little old lady, Mr. Grimm's motorcycle o' death, or what is quite possibly the coolest ice-cream truck ever, you'll speed and skid around the asphalt-covered levels, grabbing power-ups and blowing up your opponents with a wide array of vehicle-mounted weaponry.
In a game like this, several things are key: physics, control, and level design. Twisted Metal III departs from the previous games in the franchise. The levels are smaller and the physics and controls conspire to make the vehicles handle oddly. The bottom line: car-smashing fun that doesn't quite live up to the glories of the prequels. --John Cocking

People are always going to complain about "omgz it'z not likez the originalz!!" Ok, we get it, it's not like the originals, got it. Just because it's not like TM and TM2, does not make it a bad game. I feel like TM3 and TM4 get the Batman Forever/Batman and Robin treatment, when it's not at all like that. I'm here to shed some light on the subject and say it like it is.
Single Trac and 989 Studios had very different approaches when they made their TM games. Some good and some bad. I'm not going to lie, Single Trac had much better level design, vehicles, and story. However, the one place where I think Single Trac failed, was in the game play itself. Simply put, TM3 and 4 are just more fun to actually play than the first two. They have more replay value, and are just more laid back in general, with hours of campy, fun entertainment. I'm not saying TM 3 and 4 are better made games, that's debatable, but I can spend countless hours on TM3 and 4, but I'll get bored with 1 and 2 in 30 minutes. Anyway, I'm here to talk about the game itself.
Fun, very addicting game play
Many entertaining ways to play (God Mode, Hangar 18, Club Kid, 7 enemies. Have fun.)
This version of Thumper is my personal favorite
Much more fluid game play than it's predecessors. Things just...flow better
You don't die by getting rammed twice
It gave us one of the coolest final bosses in the TM series
Story lines are seriously stupid
Levels are HORRIBLE, except for London, which is amazing
Controls can be a bit sluggish
If you started with 1 and 2, this game will be your living hell
New vechicles are laughable, save for Firestarter, her's cool
Overall, I honestly don't know what it is. It's just the way the game flows. I can drive around while eating popcorn or whatever, fight to the death and not worry about losing all my health in 2 seconds because I accidentally hit Axel while driving. Even on Pure Lunacy (Hard Mode), it's insanely hard but it's...fair. I feel like the first two games were just unfair and it was just annoying at times. I would die for no reason in those games. In this game, you know what's going on , you know what weapon hit you, you're just more aware of things happening. I have beaten all TM games on every difficulty with every character so no, I don't just "suck" at the first two. This game, while it does have some control problems and whatnot, it gave us a different approach to the TM series, some good, some bad. TM3 and 4, while not the best made in the series, I come back to them more than any other game in the series. Purely for the addiction and overall entertainment factor and hours I've spent playing this, it gets 5 stars easily.
