  • Summary: In TimeSplitters Future Perfect, victory is in the hands of the player's past, present, and future self in a battle that stretches throughout time where humanity is on the brink of destruction from the malevolent TimeSplitters. Cortez--the tough-as-nails hero from previous installments--finds himself in a frantic race against time in a desperate bid to trace the origin of the TimeSplitters and save mankind. This third installment of the best-selling franchise will feature hundreds of hours of gameplay and an improved Story mode that ties all the missions together, immersing gamers in an epic adventure between the years of 1914 and 2401. Innovative "meet yourself" time travel gameplay lets players be their own ally by teaming up with past and future versions of themselves. The game also will allow two players to fight through the Story in Co-op mode, and features extensive Challenge and Arcade modes, and a Multiplayer mode that allows gamers to battle in 16-player death match online on the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system. In addition, gamers will experience an improved Map Maker feature allowing them to easily create and play their own maps and share them online. TimeSplitters Future Perfect promises to be one of the deepest arcade shooters on the console with hundreds of unlockables, more realistic environments, spectacular special effects, high quality animated cut scenes, an improved physics engine, smarter enemy AI, and much more.

  1. So say what you will about TimeSplitters being too arcadey or too cartoony or not serious enough—I'll just be over here having a hell of a time. Last I checked, that's what games were for.
  2. An intensive 3D shooter with a twist or two. The plot does not make much sense, but it is entertaining. [Mar. 05]
  3. Shooter with enough guns to satisfy the most trigger-happy soul. [Jan 2007, p.106]
  4. Free Radical still offers up a fantastic experience that will make you laugh, cry, laugh some more, and feel like a kooky bad ass from the future.
  5. As forgettable as the story mode is, this is a game that should be judged by the pleasure it can bring to a room full of gamers eager for furious arena combat and a splendid variety of team games. And judged by those criteria, it has few peers. [Apr 2005, p.94]
  6. The main, single player story mode may be the biggest disappointment in TimeSplitters: Future Perfect but it makes a decent training mode for the variety of other fun offline and online modes.
  7. 60
    Lacks some of the technological prowess of other shooters, but its personality and extras keep its head above water.

    This game is the best FPS I have ever played. Great graphics, awesome controls, and this time each level in the story mode has a place, unlike the TS2, where you could've taken out any levels save the first and last and no one would notice. The only thing I have trouble with is the challenges, some of them seem a bit ridiculous, like some of the hard mode levels in TS2. Other than that, this game is spectacular and I don't think anyone who likes FPSs should turn this down. I can't wait to take it online. Expand

    This is one of the best first person shooters i have ever played on the PS2! It is mostly a run and gun like serious sam for the pc but has a great Co-Op system which makes it even more incredible! The best part is the muitiplayer. Sure the arcade is fun, but only to an extent. There is nothing like a 4 player shooting experience with over 150 characters and TONS of different guns and different muti player options such as deathmatch and vampire. This is a must own for First Person Shooter fans and it will be VERY fun with your friends! Expand

    This game is fighting againts TimeSplitters 2 from the best video game ever made title. Sure this game has flaws like bad AI, it's easy and maps doesn't have any kinds of details. But when you start playing the game, you will forgive any flaws and you will have great time. Story mode is fun to play and you will return to play it gladly. Multiplayer is great, mapmaker is better than ever (Though you can play only with maximum of 8 players, because of a bug). If you find this game on any store, buy it! Expand

    I think that this is the best FPS ever made. I love everything about this game; The story, the multiplayer, the challenges, the league matches, the characters, the weapons, the maps, the power ups, the settings. It's perfect. If you have a Ps2, Xbox or Gamecube, get this game NOW! I mean it! Go on Ebay right now and get yourself a copy, don't waste another second being on Metacritic, when you don't own this game! DO IT!!!

    This game is one of the best games I've ever played. It's a great FPS that has endless possibilities. The amount of scenario play you can put into this game is astounding. You want open warfare? Pit yourself against a bunch of marines in an arcade mach with a couple of soldiers on your side as well. You want to battle zombies? Make a level with AI zombies and give yourself a shotgun. The possibilities are nearly endless. IN other words, Go. Go now and buy this game. It's worth the 10 bucks or so you'll need to pay. It's so, so worth it. Expand

    Looks nice. but it breaks some of the good stuff from TS1 and TS2. continuous checkpoints mean that you can't get back very far, which seems bad if you are nearly dead at checkpoint. but since the game is so much more shallow than previous games, actually it doesnt matter. lots of locked door and other contrived things keep the game strictly on rails.(is this a memory limitation on the PS2?) of course, the game engine rocks, so the multiplayer deathmatch etc are great. shame about the game, though. feels more like an arcade game. Remember twin calibre? Expand
