Time Crisis 3 (with Guncon 2)
27 February 2004
Excerpt: Arcade perfect ports are hard to come by these days, but Time Crisis 3 gets close to that mark, at least visually. While you'll get more bang for your buck with a bigger TV, the graphics are nice to look at. The same vibrant visuals that reside in the arcade are delivered to the PS2 almost seamlessly. The sounds are also nearly identical to the arcade ambiance. Not much has been changed in the way of the fast-paced music and hard-hitting effects, and for good reason.
Excerpt: Time Crisis 3 is just like the arcade version. Here endeth the review. ...yeah, I didn't think that'd really work. Time Crisis 3 is, by itself, a good reason to get a lightgun, or, if you are me, getting two lightguns and pretending you are as badass as Chow Yun-Fat. It's a near-perfect arcade adaptation of the latest installment in Namco's famous series of take-cover shooters, and, given how much money and time it takes to get good enough at the arcade version to win,...
Conclusion: Time Crisis 3 is a visual masterpiece. The masterful levels is what makes this game so great. You travel to many diverse locations within every single level and each one is rendered so beautifully. The cel-shaded, cartoonish look was very well utilized by TC3. The only minor problem with the graphics is that every enemy wears the same basic costume.
Excerpt: For a lot of gamers, our love affair with light-gun games began and ended with Duck Hunt on the NES. Part of the problem-- it wasn't always easy to find a light-gun even if there were games available for it (Dreamcast, anyone). Namco isn't down with that routine, and Time Crisis 3 is their latest title in the genre. It even comes packaged with the light-gun for a reasonable price, or without the gun if you already have it. Is it worth the investment?
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Time Crisis is the light-gun genre, and this latest iteration does little to defy that notion. It suffers from many of the pitfalls inherent of the genre; short length and limited replayability (although it fares much better in this latter regard than most offerings), but it remains a must-buy for ardent fans.
Summary: Wer einen wirklich guten Lightgun-Shooter sucht, ist bei TC3 bestens aufgehoben. Der Bereich der Möglichkeiten innerhalb dieses Genres wurde von Namco hervorragend ausgereizt. Auch wenn Grafik und Sound nicht atemberaubend ist, begeht man hier sicherlich keinen Fehlkauf. Wie man sich aber sicher bei solch einem Spiel denken kann, ist der Replay-Value nicht sonderlich hoch - nach ca. 30-45 Minuten seid ihr durch.
