The box cover for TimeSplitters
TimeSplitters is the first in the TimeSplitters series, released October 26, 2000. The game revolves around the concept of travelling through time, with each level in the story mode occurring in a specified year between 1935 and 2035, with characters and weapons from each respective time period. The game features a story mode, arcade mode, unlockable challenge mode, and map maker.
STORY All up, there are 64 playable characters that...
THE GOOD: Unbelievable multiplayer. By far, the best multiplayer game for the Playstation 2 console. The game provides a non-violent alternative way of game play, allowing young kids to enjoy the game. Controls are easy to remember and gameplay is breathtaking and magnificent.
THE BAD: Storyline disappoints me and I found the missions extremely boring to play alone on. Mapmaker can be confusing at times and gameplay begins to get boring after usage increases. Lastly, I felt that more complex weapons would be nice for the game and also, more maps and game modes would truly make the game feel finished.
SUMMARY: Timesplitters 2 is truly a magnificent piece of gaming artwork. It's worth every dollar and cent you offer for the game and it's surprisingly cheap. The gameplay satisfies every player's need. However, the missions can be extremely boring at times and gameplay can begin to become boring after playing. More weapons would be a nice addition to the game along with more maps and game m...
THE GOOD: Everything is sweet, multiplayer is sooo awesome!
THE BAD: map maker could be a little bigger for free space!
SUMMARY: Ok I admit this game looked kinda crappy on the cover and back of the box, but I found it forsale, used for $12 cdn. So I had to Buy it! and after about 15 minutes of playing it, I was trying to figure out why someone returned this game! It was so awesome, I love the multiplayer modes, the weapons are cool, sweet characters, challenges are fun, mapmaker is a great idea, so you can make your own custmized maps to play in multiplayer, but the mapmaker could be a little bigger for free space! BAG TAG is my favorite multiplayer game, Or setting the deathmatch too 1000 and see how fast i can kill, I LOVE TO KILL! So buy this game, and Timesplitters 2, all my friends have bought this game and have not been disapointed!
THE GOOD: Gameplay is fun, cheats you earn are really funny
THE BAD: it's too short, and really easy :-/
SUMMARY: This was one of the 1st games released on PS2, and it was definitely the best. The levels are pretty fun, and the multiplayer is as well. The extra challenges are the best, though. With games such as "shoot 100 zombies" or "thrown bricks through all the windows in this house" or "Protect elvis from ducks" (????), the gameplay keeps being fun.
The bad part is the easiness of the levels in the normal game. They really, truly just aren't that hard. The enemies don't need much to take down, the levels are small, and your health and guns are powerful. I think the most times i retried a level was something like 3.
In conclusion, though, this is a classicly good game to have.
A lot of people are going to be very angry with this review, I know, but please do not flame my review.
What is this game? TimeSplitters is a first person shooting game. You can play each of the three modes with up to 4 people, not including a huge amount of bots.
STORY: NA/10 There really is no story to TimeSplitters, so I really can't give it a review for that.
CONTROLS: 9/10 Why does everyone hate the control scheme so much? I found absolutely nothing wrong with it. The aiming scheme is dead on, you can strafe, look around, the controls are easy.
SOUND: 8/10 The awesome soundtrack(Done by Nine Inch Nails, I beleive), the sound effects, every sound in this game is good.
REPLAYABILITY: 10/10 You can replay the games arcade mode millions of times before it gets old, or create a new map using the map maker if any of the existing ones do get old! The Story and Challenge modes are great... and hard! That'll keep you busy for a while.. so overall, you'll be playing this game for a while.
SUMMARY: Anyone who has played Perfect Dark or Goldeneye for the N64 will feel welcome here, even down to the weapon sounds (push-pull, click-click, reload, that quick.) What's missing is the wonderfully precise control that Perfect Dark and Goldeneye permit with two controllers, one for each hand. Auto-aiming is a dry hump in such an otherwise great game. Buy it, but don't expect to find gaming Nirvana here.
SUMMARY: TimeSplitters is a below average FPS. The main issue is the conrols. Most people are not familar with FPS contols on a console. The controls are not very responsive to your commands and aiming is very frustrating. This game would be much better if the controls were on the PC with a mouse and keyboard. The story is very thin and sometimes non-existent plus the missions become repeative. You seem to do the same thing over and over again. I would like to compare this game to other FPS games that are of great quality in the past few years, but I can't. I falls well short of catching up to the likes of Halo and the sequel Time Spittlers 2. The one good quality of the game is the furious action. There are tons of enemies on the screen when playing the game and it sometimes seem to be overwhelming. Bottom line: Not even worth renting
THE GOOD: Two player split screen or link fun. Co-op mode through the story.
THE BAD: The control, the control, the control!!
SUMMARY: Anyone who has come from a PC background (halflife, Quake...anything else) will be put off by the control on ANY, console game. After playing Timesplitters on PS2, the way your gun receptical kepps trying to "spring" back to the center of the screen, made the game unplayable. Out went any targeting skill on moving targets, out went 44 rounds at point blank in a heavy fire fight, and out went the PS2 from 5 flors up due to the frustrating control method! Hal got it right first time. Same control method, to a point...ie, left thumb stick to strafe and walk forward and back, right stick to look and aim, but in Halo, you actually had a chance to hit your target! Halo was a blessing and should be looked at as the standard to which all FPS's on console should play. By all means, change the story, graphics, name and content, but it's a fact, Timesplitters has...
SUMMARY: I agree with most people when they say that the levels are boring, with the same objective OVER and OVER and OVER, and I even agree that the single-player mode has nothing interesting about it. But then I get to the multi-player mode. In that category, Timesplitters blows away any other game, and it's on the level of Halo. Others have mentioned the sheer amount of characters and guns, and the more interesting combinations of scenarios the more fun you will have. My friend and I played against 10 bots with only bricks, and we were having the time of our life. Not to mention the ability to stick bombs to your partner's (and opponents) bodies, and then let them blow up about 5 other people, is great fun. Even if it's just you alone, you can still play the multi-player mode versus the 10 bots. Bottom line: don't buy it for FPS, buy it for tournament/arcade action!
THE GOOD: Different types of levels .Level designer mode .Multiplayer .Multiple Difficultys .Things to unlock .Moderate replay value .
THE BAD: Boring levels .too short .graphics only average .bad control .
SUMMARY: One word describes TimeSplitters:Average .There really isn't any thing real amazing here .Nothing real good about this shooter .
The first good thing is the price .Most stores probably have it pretty cheap now .There's a descent amount of weapons in it .The level's looks are interesting .The levels are set to different periods of time so they all look very different .You can choose the difficulty level so it's good for people who aren't as good .The graphics and sound are ok .The level maker is a cool feature .It adds to the ok replay value .
The game is very short .As are the levels .You can beat some levels in under 5 minutes .The levels don't have any real interesting things in them either .Not much interaction between the player and the enviornment .The contr...
