Exclusive gameplay footage of the canned Metallica game by Climax.
Gimme food, gimme fries, gimme salad on the side!
Vivendi has alot of games like Velocity, this, and alot more. Would it be their fault instead of the developers?
It's too bad this wasn't turned into an IP that just featured Metallica music.
Hey! Music pirate! Boom
I was the lead vehichle artist on this game. It really was disappointing to see your hard work get canned and forgotten, so a delight to see it here after all those years with so many views. As a studio who just made driving games it was perhaps too ambitious, the combination of many new components probably made the VU executives too nervous. As well as weapons, characters/animations and open game worlds we were implimenting technology new to us such as enormous heightfield ground maps and the advanced light scattering and day night cycle. It still had a long way to go and the nervousness perhaps wasn't just felt at VU with so much to do with our limited resources.It was thanks to the brilliant tools created in house that we made that much. Incidentally I don't think I got to see a build that complete!
Great video, such a pity what happened to this game, cause I know I would play it like crazy… but just as with many others – especially car combat games, wth is going on? is there someone who does not want people to play car combat games? Cause there are not nearly enough newer car combat games and we need them! The best and newest I played was Gas Guzzlers Extreme, but it's still form 2013, we need new ones now! 😀 Let's hope for Vigor Roads…
I don't believe that this game would fit into the philosophy of James ! 🙁
A game focused on a real band with the game looking like it's actually pretty good… Such a shame that this was never finished because that's something that never happens, these days.
damn, that looks pretty good. not sure what it has to do with metallica though
What's the final boss battle, Dave Mustaine?
trailer in the beginning was shown at Metallica concerned at Texas Stadium August 3 2004, crowd went wild with Metallica playing in the background.
You like what you see and want to play a game like this? For nostalgic ones: Carmageddon. For the people who live in the here and now: Crossout.
looks like Interstate 76, a great game, that's been undervalued and haven't got any continuation
Man, I would of loved to play this :C
I think ıt's not a Metallica game it just use to the Metallica brand.
this actually looked cool!! Its pretty much twisted metal (the best racing and war game ever) with metallica ( one of the most influential metal bands ever and obviously the most commercially succesful). Why did this get cancelled? They should have cancelled st anger instead of this
I hope for a reboot! It looks realy not bad! 🙂
You forgot Interstate '76 & Death Race!
it's the thing that should not be…metallipun
Canning/canceling such great game should be federal crime.
A Metallica game should be the band vs that napster cat
This looks like a total ripoff of Twisted Metal. Even that level looks just like one of the old TwM levels. Similar weapons, similar vehicles. . .its a shameless ripoff.
Amazinnggg!!! I finally found out what ever happened to this game!!!! Thanks a billion!!!
…Twisted Metal? Old Skool PS1
At least we got Mad Max 2015 game lol
it looks like there's literally nothing to do with metallica in this game. should of just called it Damage Inc.
Kind of reminds me of Brutal Legend.
Seems cool, but doesn't actually seem to have anything to do with Metallica… I suppose they were possibly planning to work in more of a connection to the band later in development, but as far as I can tell it just seems to have been taking advantage of the name recognition.
I remember that teaser trailer like it was yesterday, crazy shit how time passes
I'm so mesmerized by the gameplay despite the fact it's not a completed game which makes me wonder how truly badass this game could've been if they had chose to finish it
Twisted Metal Black(one of my favorite games), but with metallica (one of my favorite bands)?? WHY WAS THIS NOT MADE!!! gah now I am fucking sad…
The question remains.Can I ride a table?
Wow this looks awesome, too bad it never was finished.
