Summary: this is a fun game, no doubt. the controls are at first, difficult, but you slowly get use to them. the story mode is way to short, and a bigger downside, in story mode, you don't get to choose your weapons, you just get what they give you. ive always found a nice sniper rifle very useful and fun. the deathmatches are very nice.
Summary: This game has repetetive mission objectives, nonmemorable music, complete lack of emphasis on story and even when the mission objectives are limited "find the parcel!" then NINE missions with three difficulty settings will only provide so much enjoyment. it's really only good as a timewaster.
Looks dated now but one of the most addictive games developed

Excerpt: 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.
Not stood the test of time thanks to superior sequels

Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: 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: If you have never played timesplitters.... Any way the 1st one is good but nothing compared to the 2nd or the third, if you dont have any of them just stick to the 2nd and the third as there is no story line to miss from the 1st... still fun though if u cant get enough of crazy split screen FPS action!!
Excerpt: *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!
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.
Excerpt: 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.
Summary: first of all the graphics are good but the 1 player game is a waste and face it 2 player isnt that good ,pumps up a star on the game. 1 player is boring take a bag to a round circle yawn... so repetitive another thing is there is no crosshair WHY!!!!!!!! stupid idea very very stupid idea how long does it take to add a circle on the centre of the screen!! also it aims for u why!!!!!! this eats the fun..
