  • Summary: The newest installment in the popular action-shooter series propels the franchise into the next generation, with an in-depth First Person Shooter mode, High-Definition graphics and a newly designed Guncon to complete the total Time Crisis experience. Players are given the task of preventing a top secret weapon from falling into the hands of international terrorists. With 4 modes of gameplay delivered in true HD, players have a vast gaming experience to enjoy. Featuring a new dual analog stick design, the next-gen Guncon 3 is capable of delivering entertainment to any home theater setup, supporting both High Definition displays and Standard Definition displays. New to the Time Crisis franchise, the FPS mode allows players to move freely through stages. In addition to basic game controls such as switching weapons, changing camera angles and character movement, a full feature set of gameplay actions including crouching, jumping, sniping provide a completely immersive FPS gameplay experience. A vast assortment of upgradeable weapons, unlockable bonus weapons and the ability to capture enemy machine guns mounts, make Time Crisis 4 the most in-depth and expansive Time Crisis title yet.

  1. If you are a light-gunslinger, if you're in it for the fun of realistic point-and-shoot, perhaps inviting a few friends over for taking turns at high-score challenges — the game also supports a second Guncon 3 controller, not included in the bundle, for two-player arcade-mode games — you'll almost certainly enjoy Time Crisis 4. And you'll save wads of dollar bills you'd otherwise feed into arcade token exchangers.
  2. Although there are some rather negative elements of Time Crisis 4, it's still the only game on the PS3 that currently uses any form of light gun technology, and that alone makes it worth while.
  3. If you’re into arcade TC4, you’ll really dig this.
  4. If you love the Time Crisis games, you'll likely love Time Crisis 4. If you were never a fan of the series or never really played one before, save your money. It's more of the same, and more hit-or-miss than ever.
  5. Time Crisis has always looked out of place on consoles and this just doesn't work. [Feb 2008, p.76]
  6. 50
    Time Crisis 4 feels like a 10 year old game, the franchise needs to advance and Time Crisis 4 is easily the worst title yet in the series.
  7. It’s just a bland shooter with a flimsy toy gun and a big spoonful of “we-know-better” arrogance.
