Uncensored Version
Region: USA

Release: May 28, 2012 - Author: Bravia - Translator: DaxRider123
Twisted Metal: Black is a shoot'em up for the Playstation 2; the gameplay is similar to a Demolition Derby. You choose a vehicle and compete against other drivers by using ballistic weapons.

Unfortunately, the whole storyline was taken out of the European version.

This is a comparison between the censored UK PAL version and the uncensored American NTSC version.


Main Menue


The menu item 'Movies' in the European version was replaced by the option 'Credits'.

Uncensored US Version:Censored EU Version:




Enemies


After destroying an enemy vehicle, the drivers in the American version are either thrown out of their cars by an explosion or run out, burning and screaming. This was edited out of the European version.

Images originate from the US version only:




Plane


In order to open the entrance to a secret area, you in the US version have to shoot a plane which circles around the arena.
After a few hits the machine starts to burn and falls into a building. The wrecked building is the entrance to the secret area.
In the European version, the plane had already crashed and you can always enter.

Cutscenes


Due to the fact, that the storyline was completely taken out of the European version, roughly one hour of video footage was deleted. The stories are usually divided in 3 parts:
  • In the first part, the characters (who have nothing to lose) meet a man named Calypso who promises to fullfill all their secret wishes. However, in order to get this reward, they have to participate in his Twisted-Metal-Tournament.

  • After the first half of the game you in the second part get to know something about the past of your chosen character as well as some of their motifs (it's mostly revenge).

  • The third part is about the fulfillment of your wishes (mostly the use of violence against a specific person).
