Time Crisis 3 is the third installment in the series, the second game actually being on the Playstation 2. Time Crisis began in the arcade, and has since expanded onto the PS2. To play the game in the arcade, you used an arcade style plastic gun to shoot off your foes. You may wonder, how will that ever work on a console?
Namco gave us a special treat with this package. Included in the box (granted that you bought the entire package and not just the game) is the Guncon2, a special plastic light gun created just for the Time Crisis series. It definitely has an arcade feel to it.
The VSSE has been alerted of a powerful man trying to take over the innocent country, Lukano. To prevent an invasion by a justice seeking army, he took multiple hostages in to silence his threats. Instead of sending in the troops, the VSSE sent in two of their best agents, Alan Dunaway and Wesley Lambert. They are each armed with four guns, a handgun, machine gun, shot...
THE GOOD: Arcade-perfect graphics, sound, and gameplay. Extra features/game modes added for console. Available with GunCon 2 controllers included. Interesting multiplayer options.
THE BAD: High difficulty level. The GunCon 2 controllers don't work with all TVs.
SUMMARY: The 3rd installment in Namco's popular light gun franchise, Time Crisis 3 is a unique first-person arcade shooter that puts the player in the role of a VSSE operative trying to foil an evil plot against the world. This time around you're trying to prevent nuclear missiles rom being launched from a hidden base in the Mediterranean.
The graphics are arcade-perfect, solid but not quite spectacular. Characters are 3D modeled and show a lot of deatil, as do the backgrounds, but there are some rough edges and backgrounds in the cutscenes appear to be a little grainy. The action always moves at a good pace and there is never any slowdown when many objects are on the screen. Sounds are also arcade-perfect, with a reasonable amount...
THE GOOD: Shooting soldiers with a virtual gun is great Graphics are almost the same as the arcade version Four weapons New sniper mode Arcade, Rescue Mission and Crisis modes. Good two player game
THE BAD: You need a lightgun Hard controls on sniper mode More weapons! Lip-sync looks bad Annoying deaths You'll get bored after a few goes Boss's take years to die
SUMMARY: This game is a fun game. I first got to grips with Time Crisis in the arcades and the game just play the exact same. But you need a lightgun if you are considering buying this. It work with the control pad but don't bother. This game is so fun and it's very additive if you have never played a Time Crisis game before but i've wasted plenty of money on the arcade version and when I got this wasn't as glued to my gun as much I should be. Fun though. Two player again you need two lightguns and two T.V.s linked up together to have the most fun. The reasion why you need two T.V.s because on one screen, the two seprate screens are tiny an...
