Summary: I played this game for hours years ago when I had my freidns round, 4 of us would connect up to a muti-tap and play multiplayer, But on single player this game realy is basic. Lets be honest even if you was going to, you wouldent but this game now to play, its just to old and dated, but at the time it was very good. And the addictiveness of the gameplay is still there.
Pros: Addictive gameplay, simple and effective controls
Summary: Generally, FPS games don't have a very good track record at all, and it wasn't really until the release of Halo that this stereotype changed. However, you do every so often come across a good FPS game , and whilst Timesplitters very much pales in comparison to the brilliant sequel, it's still a good start for the PS2.
Summary: Timesplitters is a shooter for the Playstation 2 developed by Free Radical. Lets get this out of the way now, this game is not story driven at all if you are looking for an immersive story driven shooter with a wonderful plot and loveable characters this will most certainly disappoint you! The single player story mode is a barebones and basic as I have ever seen one, though as a redeeming feature it does include co operative play which makes it alot more fun.
Summary: *A review that focuses primarily on the single-player experience of TimeSplitters.* From a developer consisting of employees who had worked on the quality N64 FPS titles Goldeneye 007 and Perfect Dark comes a fairly comprehensive game of the same genre for the PS2. 'Arcade' mode offers 4-player split-screen action with up to ten bots over numerous levels and scenarios. Though there's no Moonraker, the Mapmaker should no doubt satisfy some!
Excerpt: "...artefact is captured, the evil TimeSplitters race appear, meaning the route to base won't be enemy-free and hence, won't be easy. Whilst completion of Story on Easy can take about an hour, TimeSplitters is a tricky game as enemies are quite quick to react and are highly accurate. Show yourself in the slightest and you will get hurt - and it only takes a second too long to see your life cut well short. Unfortunately, as a game on CD, it does suffer ...
Excerpt: "Having only bought this yesterday i may be wrong in what i say as i havnt played the game to any depth. During this 1st person shooter you control a variety of charachters who travel to different era's to sort out problems (think quantum leap with guns). Story mode doesn't actually have a story as such i havn't seen any FMV or text so i don't really know why we're doing what we are. However having played my way through about 12 levels i'm ...
TIMESPLITTERS - The great action title goes platinum!

Summary: the fast, firstperson shooter hits the new Playstation 2 platinum range. The game that matches up with the highly successful Unreal Tournament has got even better by the groovy price tag. Well worth the green.
Summary: One of the ealiest titles released for the PS2 but doesn't look dated now. It's a first person shooter that's stripped down to run at break neck speed. The game is set in time periods for each level between 1935 and 2035, and the plot is that you are a timetraveller and have to fetch items from each of these time periods, though really the plot is an aside.
