“ Genre: Shooter / Rating: T - (Teen) / up to 4 players / published by: Eidos Interactive „
This is my favourite ever FPS, the game should be featured in the dictionary under the definition of fun. Basically the premise of the game is like any other shooter, complete objectives and kill the enemies on the level. Timesplitters is a very out and out shooter and makes no apologies for it's real lack of stealth.
The single-player game although quite enjoyable involves plenty of different locations throughout the past and present and involves, space, western levels, city streets and plenty more. All of these combine to provide a decent story and you will have a lot of enjoyment completing them.
As well as the story mode TS2 also features an arcade league where you complete different scenarios to try and unlock medals (gold, silver and bronze) for your efforts. These are very challenging and depending on your performance you can unlock lots of new characters (there are over 125 in the game).
However the best part of TS2 is the multi-player mode, you can play with up to 3 friends and this is a blast. There are many customisable options and game modes including the standard fare deathmatch and capture the briefcase as well as other exclusive modes such as monkey assistant and virus. With plenty of characters, weapons and levels this game will last you many, many hours. It is also pretty cool as all your stats are tracked from the multi-player games and it can be fun to compare stats with your friends.
I wish that the Gamecube had the proper ability to go online as Timesplitters 2 online would've been phenomenal especially if they had enable cross console play between the PS2 and Xbox versions as well. I've been playing this game for a number of years and I thoroughly look forward to New Radical's new Timesplitter game which is s'pposed to be in development as we speak.
The evil race of TimeSplitters are traveling back into human history authoring events that are leading to the enslavement of mankind. In Control of a motley crew of renegade characters you must hunt down the TimeSplitters across time in historical eras.
