  • Summary: The evil race of TimeSplitters is traveling back into human history authoring events that are leading to the enslavement of mankind. In control of a motley crew of renegade characters, you must hunt down the TimeSplitters in historical eras like the gangster-ridden 1920s, the lush jungles of Aztec temples, soviet military installations of the Cold War, and futuristic robot factories in space. To end their evil plot, seek and recover the crystals required to seal the rift in time. Expand

  1. A whole new level in FPS gaming and I think everyone should get it. It is better than both "Goldeneye" and "Perfect Dark," and even better than "Halo."
  2. What really stands out about Time Splitters 2 is not the gobs of stuff they’ve thrown in, but that each gob is so well crafted.
  3. One of the best first-person shooter games ever. The only major flaw I can find with the game is the lack of online support.
  4. 90
    With Story, Arcade, and Challenge modes offering a ton of high-octane single-player and multiplayer contests, this game has something for everyone.
  5. 90
    So many play styles can only translate into one thing -- boundless replay value.
  6. May very well be the best split-screen multiplayer-focused first-person shooter ever created.
  7. While the environments are beautiful, the hackneyed time-travel story line feels shoehorned into the experience... [which] ends up feeling a bit half-baked. [4 Oct 2002, p.158]

    No matter what you think of the one player mode and the storyline just sit back and play the multiplayer mode and you'll be hooked!

    Excellent game indeed. Who cares about the story when the game itself is fun as hell? Story mode has great amount of variation and the higher difficult level, the more objectives and other level chances you get. Challenge, Arcade Leagues and Mapmaker add A LOT of play time to the game, which will already have more than enough of play time, because the single player and multiplayer are great. The only bad things are weak weapons in the multiplayer and lack of checkpoints in the Hard difficult setting (You might be forced to do the entire level, if you die). Other wise, it's so damn good game you will be spending few years at least playing it before you start to get tired of it. Must buy game. Expand

    Almost everything about this game is perfect, the storymode is awesome, the other game modes are awesome, the mapmaker is awesome, the gameplay is awesome etc. etc. it's one of the best games that I've ever played and I still play it. One of the best things about this game is the music, I've never heard such awesome music in a game before, it really increases the fun & athmosphere! Expand

    Brilliant single player levels with loads of character and short bursts of fun. 130 characters to unlock and one of the best multiplayer games of all time. (4player is only beat by Future Perfect). The closest thing to Goldeneye that we'll ever see. Expand

    This game was rated very accurately. It looks and plays great. It is very addictive. All the whiners that are complaining about the controls (aiming) just have no coordination. The challenge missions are a blast, and there are tons of extras. This game can easily be found for less than 20 bucks now, which is a steal. Give it a try. Expand

    I was expecting great things of this game - the 2nd i purchased for my xbox after halo. I must have read 20 reviews chailing it as the best FPS ever. . . was i playing the same game? the graphics, the sound, the animation, the level structure, the weapons - but above all the actual controld and aiming system were so poor i felt i had been robbed of my money. I took my copy back to the shop the next morning. this is no goldeneye beater - and no way comes close to halo. if you like first person shooters - good ones - then this is definitely not for you.
