About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

by Judy on Dec. 11, 2007 @ 2:53 p.m. PST

Eat, Sleep, Play, founded by God of War's David Jaffe and Warhawk's Scott Campbell, is working on Twisted Metal: Head On featuring enhanced graphics, playable Sweet Tooth character, lost levels from the never released Twisted Metal: Black Part II and a documentary on the series.

Developed by Eat, Sleep, Play, a newly formed company founded by David Jaffe, a former creative director for SCEA's Santa Monica Studios; and Scott Campbell, the founder of Incognito Entertainment, a dedicated development studio also under the SCEA Santa Monica Studios banner, Twisted Metal: Head-On: Extra Twisted Edition is set to crash onto the PS2 in Spring 2008.

Featuring enhanced graphics and key gameplay features from the popular PSP title, Twisted Metal: Head-On: Extra Twisted Edition features four never before seen "Lost" levels that were built for the never-released Twisted Metal: Black sequel, plus an all-new never before seen Twisted Metal: Head- On level. Additionally, for the first time ever, fans will be able to take "Sweet Tooth" out of his ice cream truck and explore, on foot, an all new level filled with factoids about the Twisted Metal universe straight from the developers. Also, included with the game is an art booklet featuring never released concept art from the franchise.

Twisted Metal: Head-On: Extra Twisted Edition provides all the fast-paced vehicular combat and destruction that fans of the franchise have come to know and love. The latest installment in the multi-million selling franchise provides a variety of gameplay options, as gamers can go head-to-head or compete against the Artificial Intelligence (AI) and deliver the devastation as they strap themselves into one of 14 lethal machines on wheels equipped with machine guns, turbo boosts and special attacks unique to each vehicle.
