    Quite honestly one of the worst designed games I've ever played. Bought it because it scored fairly high with the critics, including one site listing it among one of the best coop games around. But it's absolutely brutal! Story is weak, graphics and music are lame, control interface is awkward, and game play is awful.

Bought it because it scored fairly high with the critics, including one site listing it among one of the best coop games around. But it's absolutely brutal! Story is weak, graphics and music are lame, control interface is awkward, and game play is awful. Coop play is ridiculous... if one person dies, they CAN'T be respawned, and either have to wait until the other person dies or else finishes off the level. Worse, that usually means you have to start the level all over again (best case scenario there's ONE checkpoint for the level you can restart from). I can't figure why so many critics rated it so highly, but comparisons to Halo are definitely not warranted.... Stay away from this turkey! If you still want to check it out, rent it before you buy it or you'll be sorry. Expand

    I was expecting great things of this game - the 2nd i purchased for my xbox after Halo. I must have read 20 reviews hailing Time Splitters 2 as the best FPS ever. . . was i playing the same game? the graphics, the sound, the animation, the level design, weaponry - but above all the actual controls and aiming system were so poor i felt i had been tricked of my money.

I took my copy back to the shop the very next morning. Take note, this is no 'goldeneye beater', this isnt even as good as turok - and no way comes close to Halo. I just dont understand how anyone can enjoy this badly designed, hurried and average looking waste of time. Are you so desperate to believe the hype that you convince yourselves this is fun? On the Xbox controller, with its twin thumbpads i would never have expected to have to use the same thumbpad to move and aim. . . unbelievable. If you like first person shooters - good ones - then this is definitely not for you. Expand

    This greatly overrated exercise in frustration is was not worth the ten bucks I spent on it. If you are a fan of fps, _do not buy this game_. The save system is horrible, which was likely intentional to force chronic replay of the wee maps. The professional reviewers must have been graft-laden fanboys.

    This game gives me motion sickness after playing the game for more than three minutes so unfortunatley I am unable to give this game any suitable rating.

  1. A nicely balanced, infinitely controllable and visually distinctive ride that simply feels right. [Fall 2002, p.100]
  2. It is quite simply the best multiplayer value you can find anywhere. That's including the all mighty "Halo."
  3. As if the a great single player experience wasn’t enough there are some incredible multiplayer games happening here.
