One of the best First Person Shooters for the PS2
This game is simply amazing. Although the graphics aren't that great, and the story is extremely short (You could probably beat the Story Mode game on easy difficulty in about an hour), where this game really shines is in it's multiplayer. The multiplayer is very fast-paced and intense, especially in the Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Capture The Bag modes. There are so many wacky, insane characters that you just won't find in any other first person shooters, such as a robot with a fishbowl for a head, a giant duck, and so much more. The controls are pretty standard for a lot of FPS's, with just a bit of auto-aim to make it really smooth. This game also uses health packs (no regenerating health), which can make multiplayer battles with friends quite intense. There is an impressive selection of weapons and characters to choose from. This game is awesome.
I Think i died and went to heaven...
This game is seriously, one of, if not THE best games i have EVER played in my life! there is almost nothing wrong! first of the story mode, one, its not really a story mode, it gives you a short, almost nonexistent briefing, then out the door you go shooting up just about everything, you can do it 1 or 2 player, but if you want to unlock anything, go 1 player, the story mode is very short (9 levels lasting about 5 minutes each) but multiple difficulties will keep you going, oh, and this mode, is HARD!!!!!! Then once thats over we have challenge mode, just some random matches that are thrown together, hence the name they are challenging, but there arent many. Where this game shines is the arcade mode, which can be 1-4 players, with bots too, and over 55 characters, yes, you read that right, 55 FRIGGIN CHARACTERS!!!!!! There is almost no limit to customization!! you get to choose weapons, bots, map, game mode, the whole 9 yards! And the characters, they can go from boring humans, to ALIENS!!! to ZOMBIES!!! to GINGERBREAD MEN!!!! to BUNNIES!!! to DUCKS!!!!!! this game is fun single AND multi player, whats not to love from this game?
Not what I thought
I got this because it looked like a cool shooter.I was a little dissapointed.It wasn't a very long game I beat in a day.But you do get a good amount of weapons so that is cool.It isn't really that much of a horror.It is like an arcade you have to get an object on every level then go back to where you started.That is all you do there is no cut scenes there is no bosses.Well for an old game this has some good graphics so that didn't bother me.Well there is a challenge to it.Like when you die you start the whole level all over again.But you can do the level with friends or you can do some other multiplayer levels like capture the bag death match and team deathmatch.The sound is not so great but it is an old game.I expected alot more but if you want to give it a try that is ok.I hope I helped.
Real Shooter for a real gamer.
TimeSplitters is a phenomenal shooter, Tons of stuff to unlock, Dozens of characters and ingame cheats, Amazing multi-player and silly brittish humor!
Oh, TimeSplitters is an experience like no other! Forget Gears of war, Halo or CoD MW, TimeSplitters was before them all and ten times better!
The graphics are a bit old, But they are not an eyesore; TRUST ME!
The game is REALLY fun if you more people to play with, Tons of weapons, Tons of maps, And it's very own mapmaker!
I can't stress how much you should buy this game if you have a Ps2.
I think this was the first dual analog first person shooter. but this is still really fun. there is no aim assist unless you hold the l2 button, but the shooting is still easy. the aiming is also tighter, and without aim assist, that helps this compete with all modern shooters. there is no regenerating health, and that can be a problem, and the difficulties can be unbalanced. but there are different levels that take place over different times in history, and each is really good. this is a game worth owning
I loved it while I was in story mode unlocking new people and levels. But finally when I finished the game.................. BORING. The only new thing I got was challenge. Challenge is these challenges that you beat and you can get something new. The sound goes okay exept for two levels, Chemical Plant and Mansion. Also, the guys you can play as, look pretty good! If you like sorta old fashion first person shooters, I would recommend this game to you.
A great multiplayer experience!
No doubt about it this is the best multiplayer based FPS on the Playstation 2. I wouldn't recommend it if your looking for a game with a long story driven campaign but if your looking for a very fun and frantic local multiplayer experience this game is perfect for you. It has over fifty unlock able characters, plenty of detailed maps and weapons, creative game modes and some very fun weapons.
Set the bar high for shooters!
Classic shooter that I still play on my PS3! I bought Timesplitters 2 & Future Perfect and they are the longest games I've ever owned, besides Gran Turismo. Built with the Goldeneye 007 engine, the game is so smooth. I can't wait until Timesplitters 4 or whatever they are going to call it comes out!
