Excerpt: Anthony Karge is one of Thunderbolt’s many fine reviewers and is also an excellent friend. The two of us loved Time Crisis 2 a lot, so we got together, and we wrote up this review. We hope you enjoy it! Time Crisis 2 is a simple game, but sometimes, that’s a good thing. We’re simple men; we don’t always want to be bombarded with ridiculous amounts of options, puzzles, menus, and storylines that can’t be skipped.
Excerpt: Despite the fact that Time Crisis 2 is a port of an aging arcade game, it definitely looks very sharp on the PS2. The environments are detailed, if not particularly colourful, and the enemy and character models are well-detailed. It's not pushing the PS2 to its limits, but it's definitely well beyond the Time Crisis games on the original PSX. You'll be impressed with the sharpness of the visuals, and the cutscenes are quite well-done, but you've seen better as well.
Excerpt: If any of you only knew how high my appreciation for Time Crisis is. Time Crisis was, and still is, one of my favorite Playstation games ever. I remember my first actual experience with a light-gun was with Lethal Enforcers (anybody remember that game?). I recall dropping quarters after quarter into a local arcade. I was hooked! About a year after, I purchased the Super Nintendo version with the gun and everything.
Excerpt: After being disappointed with Silent Scope 1 and 2, I patiently have waited for a gun game to satisfy my shooting urges on the PS2. Since I am not a murdering criminal, I figured it would be best to wait for a realistic and fun shooter to make its way on the PS2 instead of practicing in real life. Now I am sure the government would not mind if I exercised my trigger finger in Afghanistan against the heinous Taliban.
Excerpt: La série des Time Crisis a contribué à élever Namco au rang de géant de l'arcade. Après deux volets adaptés sur PSOne, le troisième épisode arrive sur console nouvelle génération. Comme dans la version initiale, les agents spéciaux Keith Martin et Robert Baxter doivent démanteler le réseau Neodyne qui s'apprête à lancer un satellite nucléaire en orbite et secourir Christy Ryan, un agent disparu lors de son enquête sur la fameuse organisation.
