  1. Everything it promises to be: an old-school shooter with a zany, slightly raunchy style that you really won't find anywhere else.
  2. It's not perfect, but it's pretty freaking fun!
  3. Every aspect of the game feels polished and ready to go, whether it's the single-player story, the online multiplayer, the numerous unlockables, or the custom mapmaker. This is one of those rare Jack-of-all-trades that has actually mastered them all.
  4. It may not be the most original game in the world, but the fact that it offers a level of fun that is certainly unparalleled in the genre more than makes up for that.
  5. Future Perfect has the perfect blend of challenges and the best multiplayer gameplay around.
  6. Whether you are striving for higher ranks or want to dazzle people with a map that you created and uploaded, TimeSplitters' online presence is unprecedented and simply irresistible. [Apr 2005, p.114]
  7. The shoot-'em-up action is nonstop, and the character acting is hilarious. The varied modes allow for almost infinite replay value.
  8. 88
    On the one hand, it's a flat, uninspired single-player campaign, with vehicles and base-level NPC co-op play holding it up with shoes strings. While on the other hand, the multiplayer game is substantial, creative, and wildly fun.
  9. The lack of jumping is the missing piece in an otherwise perfect title. [May 2005, p.89]
  10. The storyline is very solid and arguably the best in the series so far.
  11. A larger variety of weapons than that in "Timesplitters 2," as well as more levels, characters, and challenges make this game very impressive and a welcomed addition to the series.
  12. What it does do is take the simple, tactile pleasure of solidly built FPS action and inject it into such a staggeringly wide variety of situations, contexts and scenarios that putting down the pad after a heavy blasting session is genuinely difficult.

    Great classic game. Anyone who plays shooters should pick it up. Good luck finding it though. It contains things that you just cannot find in other shooting games today. Actually fun weapons characters and a story that remembers games are supposed to be fun and not... well... always having to be call of duty. Full Review »
