    The first-rate gunnin’ action takes precedence over everything else in the game. This is one crisis that all pistol enthusiasts should make time for.
  2. The core game is short, but very, very sweet and packed with replay value, even after you have unlocked all of the hidden goodies. [Dec 2003, p.72]
  3. To put them in order we'd say that TC3 is better than TC2 but both of them still hover behind Titan. This is an excellent lightgun game that just misses being truly great and goes on to kill an innocent bystander.
  4. TC3 will do what many other light gun games cannot. Convert fans to the genre. I'm a living example.
  5. If you even remotely liked the first two, then this title, which only adds more quality to the series, is a must have. The Time Crisis series upholds its throne as the light-gun shooter king, though anyone who is looking for more in a game will not find it all here.
  6. With a number of new gameplay innovations, a low learning curve and high replay value, Time Crisis 3 is pretty much guaranteed to satisfy even the most jaded lightgun gamer out there.
  7. The real bonus, though? You can open an entirely new game! Not just a few bonus levels, mind you - these are 14 stages you didn't play in the arcades. [Nov 2003, p.142]
  8. Bright, colorful visuals relay a fast-paced shootout across several stages of intense first-person gameplay.
