Twisted Metal: Black was one of the games among the first batch of confirmed PlayStation 2 titles for the PlayStation 4's recently added PlayStation 2 emulation feature.

PlayStation 2 games emulated on the PlayStation 4 come with a number of benefits, for example, games will be uprendered to 1080p and come with some PlayStation 4 features such as Remote Play, Live Broadcast, Share Play, Activity Feeds and Second Screen support for game manuals with the PlayStation Vita or PlayStation App. Furthermore, games will also gain trophy support which has been added in conjunction with feedback from the original creators themselves. You can see what Twisted Metal: Black looks like running on a PlayStation 4 below.

Unfortunately PlayStation 2 emulation on the PlayStation 4 doesn't mean you can dust off your old copy of Twisted Metal: Black and pop it into your PlayStation 4, instead you'll need to purchase the title on the PlayStation Store, in this case, for £7.99 as there is no disc support. 

The car-combat title Twisted Metal: Black released back in 2001 for the PlayStation 2 console and gained an incredible reception from fans and critics alike. For instance Twisted Metal: Black has an aggregated Metacritic score of 91, and gained a 96 and 95 from IGN and Gamespot respectively, high praise indeed.

Along with Twisted Metal: Black, the likes of Dark Cloud, Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Rogue Galaxy, The Mark of Kri and War of the Monsters make up the first batch of titles that utilise the PlayStation 2 emulation feature on the PlayStation 4.
