Summary: It's possible that this game would seem easy to someone who's played first-person shooter games before. I've played a lot of third-person shooters such as Ratchet and Clank, as well as adventure games such as Baulder's Gate: Dark Alliance. I found the controls completely non-intuitive. There is no tutorial, no way to learn how to operate the controls except being thrown into a level and repeatedly dying.
Summary: My brother-in-law got this game for free, and I still think he overpaid. I spent an hour trying to play it, and found it a tired retread of "Doom" or "Wolfenstein 3D". In fact, I wished I could just pop Wolfenstein into his Playstation 2. If you need a good FPS for your PS2, try "Red Faction" or even any of the "Medal of Honor" games. The FPS genre has evolved too much to settle for inferior game design and execution.
Summary: I bought this game right after I recieved my PS2 because it looked fun. I'm into futuristic stuff, and that's what I was getting from the front of it. However, it is not futuristic other than the fact that there are a couple of characters that are from the future. I hated the game. The controls are extremely hard to master (though it can be done, and I'm sure they can be changed), and you have to spin a lot.
Summary: I was in the store one day, and I picked up the game "TimeSplitters". I had just traveled an hour to get to the store, and I had fifty burning dollars in my pocket. I scanned the back of the box to see what it said... Saying how it goes at a smooth 60-frames per second, I thought 'Wow! That pretty good!' Also it had a level editor! I told myself how not many platform-systems had this diversity found in it.
Summary: I wanted to love this game, but the controls made it impossible to play. I'm shocked at the love fest this has generated, given the awfull control options. A little code to support a USB mouse would have been greatly appreciated here! I spent all my time trying to get my cross hairs aimed at something while getting plugged full holes. I had a few ideas about configuring the control layout to make it playable, but the rigid pre-defined choices wouldn't allow it.
Summary: This game isn't as good as most of the 1st person shooters on the PS1. For a release on the PS2 this is a pathetic excuse. You'd be better off buying Syphon Filter 1 or 2, or Medal of Honor for the PS1, or waiting for new versions of those games to come out on the PS2.
Summary: Ok, the graphics are good, but the game play is just like every other shootem up on the planet. The 1 player gaming is too dull for words - drop in the middle of a scene and kill everything. Piss poor plot and non existent strategy, you will head for the off switch after 10 mins. It is really annoying that considering the abilities of the PS2, that when you kill a bad guy he just falls over.
