whats worse? tm 3 or 4

i would have to say 4. the controls were crap, the stories were crap, the characters where crap (even the returning ones) and honestly i can go on and on and on and on about how horrible this game is. bout the only thing i liked about it was the soundtrack.

I hated 3 because of the small level design and character endings. But like 4 ( even if its a 989 TM game) it had a good soundtrack and every car was playable in the game, however the only thing I hate about 4 is the stupid characters ( Drag Queen, The Jonesses, Microblast,etc.)

I bought TM3 and returned it after 2 hours.

Figured TM4 was more the same, read the reviews and did not even bother.

I prefer 3 to 4.

Three still felt like twisted metal despite the arena style combat and kid friendly atmosphere.

4 was just...odd on all fronts and if it had not promised to be twisted metal would of been a good game in its own right, but it was off, Very very off.

There's people that actually prefer 3 to 4? whoah

To this day, after one level of awful physics, licensed music, awful characters, awful stories, I refused to play 3 ever again.

Yet somehow, 4 has uglier characters, more licensed music, worse stories, and I love it.
I think some of the weapons are creative, like the two types of missiles that launch other missiles, those are super cool. I also love the flammable
toxic waste
. Rob Zombie being a playable character is odd, but a fun idea. Pizza Boy's special is unique imo, and I love using it. I also love the boss at the end of every stage, makes the roster a little more fleshed out, even if half of the people just have the gravity hole special in some variation, which imo, is 100x cooler than everyone having axel's shockwave in 2012.
also fuck sweet tooth

Sure, quality > quantity, but when the quality sucks, more chracters means there's probably more semi-good ones. Plus, the custom character system, while primitive and limited, is really cool for it's time.

3 is worse. The flipping kills it completely and the specials rank from overpowered (Club Kid) to pathetic (Mr. Grimm is weak as usual but this time even his special is weak too? He is a goof).
Storywise both suck as well as the characters and endings but i loved 4's create a car, some of the cars (Like Orbital, Quatro, the Super versions of TM2 cars) and the new weapons.

3 has the worst turning and car physics in the series. Twisted Metal 4 has better physics, level design and has the coolest weapon selection of every Twisted Metal. Literally the only downside to Twisted Metal 4 is the characters themselves and the cars.

Twisted 4 is worse. Sure it has better levels but the vehicles design sucks and the biggest flaw is the stupid specials. They are there just to be there. There is zero thought and strategy behind the specials with the exeption of maybe Orbital and Rob Zombie. Also most of the specials recharge very slow and deal less damage than a power missile.
Mortar and rain 1 are way worse than TM3 versions.

The only plus of TM4 is the levels(some of them).

TM3 takes everything that TM2 created and made a bare bones version of that. With the lack of AA alongside poor physics of cars staying upside down for 5 seconds or so, makes this game unbearable. Most of the levels suck ass, especially Egypt.

At least TM4 made improvements on what TM3 failed to capitalize on to an extent, but that's not saying much about TM4.

If I could vote for both I would. However, TM3 was mine.

My opinion changed over the years and TM3 is my worse TM game now. Twisted metal 4 isnt far behind though in all honesty.

I'm not going to go in a super elaborate post as to why. Done it one too many times.

TM3 - Worst storyline (it's all just pure confusion) and vehicle physics (constantly drifting to the side or tipping upside down).
TM4 - Worst aiming, also constantly using turbo by accident.  Plus, a lot of the weapons are totally useless.

4 is worse with 3 989 "tried" to stick to the script of a TM game but with 4 they completely threw out the script. just look at the characters... Drag Queen... Micro blast... and The Johnsons... do i really need to name more then u got all the game play issues...

Like Jaffe has said: 3 and 4 are good games, just bad TM games.

To me, 4 is a better game than 3; though 3 is probably a better TM game than 4.

Overall, I think 4 is better because things like better gameplay, level design, etc should override the character and car designs (because that's just cosmetic, imo). Besides, they both had bad cars and characters (and story) so why not focus on the gameplay? 3 has quite sloppy control compared to 4, and that's what ultimately makes up my mind. That said, I enjoyed both for what they were as bad as they were for having the TM brand name slapped across the front.



Side note: I remember thinking at the time that I was just going to have to settle for 989 at the helm instead of singletrac. I remember anticipating that the next TM game would likely have a roman numeral V; developmed once again by 989 and wondering how different it would be since 3 and 4 were different... enter TM: Black.

TM3 story was a shallow rehash of its predecessor. It has some okay physics especially the feel of ramming in the game. Didn't like flipping on my back like a turtle for too long. Stages were a bit bland and small. Gameplay wise with what you can do with the full roster was limited. Depended on the specials for me. The multiple back shots trick was a lot of fun. Especially with Outlaw zapping people into the ceiling or sapping their life. Club kid was also fun when the whirlpool would magnify the effect.

TM4 intro was fun to watch but you could only watch it once. Seeing Calypso and Sweet Tooth fight inside a ring over a smaller ring is fun. Quite a few cars had interesting moves to work with. Calypso's draining nuke on a direct hit was neat, Sweet Tooth's was cheap and interesting, not too many others come to mind. Roster was bland and I'm glad a lot of the special cars didn't bother with having profiles. A lot of fun glitches in the game. Fun time with a gameshark.
