TimeSplitters: Future Perfect
1 May 2006
Excerpt: The lineage of the Timesplitters games goes back to the heady days of the N64, when a certain development studio by the name of Rare created a certain First Person Shooter called Goldeneye for the spanking new Nintendo console. Teaming the license from one of the better Bond films of recent years with the most proficiently executed FPS ever seen by console owners was a stroke of genius as accidental as it was massive.
Excerpt: TimeSplitters: Future Perfect is a pretty darn enjoyable game. The AI is pretty average, the story a little hokey, and the gameplay is pretty straight forward basic – none of which would make Future Perfect a great game, right? However, what the game does really right is provide gameplay that is unabashedly fun. There’s a lot of imagination in the game, plenty of tongue in cheek humor, and interesting levels set at various points in time.
Excerpt: First and foremost, let me say this: TimeSplitters: Future Perfect is a very entertaining game. The single player campaign is both hilarious and fairly engaging. The main character, Cortez, appears to be a Riddick rip-off at first, but is better defined later in the game. Well, in Future Perfect, you start off delivering a case of time crystals back to base in order to power the time machine you'll be using to go back and forth in time.
Excerpt: Well, in Future Perfect, you start off delivering a case of time crystals back to base in order to power the time machine you'll be using to go back and forth in time. Once at the base, you get “commissioned” to be the time traveler that has to stop the current war from happening by changing events in the past. Hey, all in a days work for Cortez.
First and foremost, let me say this: TimeSplitters: Future Perfect is a very entertaining game.
Conclusion: The multiplayer aspect is also fun, with a retro 4-player split screen or up to 12 players over Xbox Live. Games play smoothly, the maps are interesting and varied and there are currently plenty of people playing the game. There maps may be small in number, but the there’s a basic map editor to allow you to create your own, and this could add a huge amount to the lifespan of the game should level design be your kind of thing.
Pros: The TS characters., Wacky humour., Varied levels.
Cons: The vehicles., Not the prettiest game out there., Strictly linear levels and no jumping.
Conclusion: Future Prefect is without doubt the best TimeSplitters game Free Radical has created since the inception of the franchise back in 2001. While the single player game does not have the epic nature of titles such as Halo or Half Life there is no denying a lot of interesting, exciting and fun moments are contained within. The Arcade and Challenge modes are literally stuffed to the brim with loads of objective to complete on a variety of difficulties.
Excerpt: "Time Splitters: Future Perfect on humoristinen räiskintäpeli, jossa pelaaja jälleen kerran ottaa kovaksikeitetyn avaruusmariini Cortezin roolin. Peli tuo hieman vaihtelua FPS-genreen sen humoristisella otteellaan. Ikävän lyhyttä yksnpeliä paikkaamaan on mukaan pakattu kiitettävän monipuolinen ja kattava moninpeliosio sekä helppokäyttöinen karttaeditori, joista riittää iloa pitkäksi aikaa.
Pros: + Hauska, + Mahdollisuus pelata yksinpeli kavereiden kanssa, + Moninpeli, + Mukana tuleva karttaeditori
Cons: - Yksinpelin lyhyt kesto, - Yksinpelin tallennustapa
