    Timesplitters 2 is quite simply the greatest FPS ever made. They certainly do not make shooters like this anymore, absolute masterpiece. Perfect. 10/10

    To compare this game to Halo is like saying an orange is different than an apple. Of course they are different. Halo is more realism, TS2 is more arcade action. In Halo you can run around and litterally hide from your enemies until you pop them from behind....TS2 you can try that...but with the speed of movement and the way the maps are created make this much harder to do. Run shoot, duck To compare this game to Halo is like saying an orange is different than an apple. Of course they are different. Halo is more realism, TS2 is more arcade action.

    EW..is on crack. This is a video game.. not "War and Peace". The gang from Golden-Eye have done it again.. with a beautiful and highly polished FPS extravagnaza..that is easily the ebst FPS on Gamecube or Ps2 and even rivals the mighty Halo. Taking a totally different visual approacg, Free Radical has projected their own twisted sense of humor into the project in many ways..such as death EW..is on crack.

In this mode.. the biggewst baddest player onthe map. will LITERALLY be the BIGGEST character on the map as well. With tons of secrets and unlockables, 4 player split screen, 16 player via system link, 2 player co-op, a built in map maker and Xbox HD the fun never has to end! Expand

    Quite possibly the best shooting game ever. The story is deep, challenging, and addictive. The multiplayer has a ton of different game modes to offer. The aiming can be improved but its over criticized and actually deserves praise for the realisticness (its impossible to hold a gun COMPLETELY still, so the aim marker is moving).

    There are two games here: the single/combo-player story and the multiplayer game. I give the story game an 8 (fairly standard and not surprising; graphics and gameplay are so-so. Although 2 player co-op mode is an idea more games should follow) but give the multiplayer a 10 (incredible variety, many innovative ideas, bots, multiple characters, a mapmaker, customizable levels).

This game sets the standard for multiplayer FPS's, and I hope it will lead the competition to follow. I'll likely finish the story levels in a week and never play them again. But I'll certainly keep it for the multiplayer aspect, which will enable my pals to play against (or with) bots in many different missions and many different maps that can be customized to our liking. That alone makes this a "keeper". Expand

    Added features of Arcade mode, and Challenge mode make this the best replay value out there. Yes single player does lack story line but who really cares about the story after a few days anyway. Aiming took time to get use to but what good game doesn't have challenges. Overall one of the best games out there.

    It's not perfect, but there's a lot of fun to be had here in both it's single and multiplayer gameplay. In single player, it'll take a person a long time to unlock everything. And since the challenge is rather high, you may never finish the game. In multiplayer there's so many great modes. Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, Domination, Shrink, Regeneration, and others.

The negatives are 1. The story is pretty lame, 2. The characters animate very unnaturally, 3. Story mode could use more length, 4. There's no online play as was promised, 5. Occasionally the goals are unclear in challenge mode, 6. The stats aren't nearly as detailed as I would have liked - especially considering it forces you to enter your identity if you want to play. To sum, it's a really good game but could have been super awesome with some relatively minor tweaks. Expand

    The original Timesplitters had awesome multiplayer but the single player options were laughable. TS2 brings back and improves on the multiplayer mode and adds a massive single player story mode. This game lets you play as about 120 characters once they are all unlocked and gives you a bundle of levels to use them on. You play in areas ranging from the wild west to a robot factory.

This game lets you play as about 120 characters once they are all unlocked and gives you a bundle of levels to use them on. You play in areas ranging from the wild west to a robot factory. The story mode takes you through several levels spanning different time periods. These areas include Siberia, Wild West, Planet X, Notre Dame and more. TS2 also has a co-op mode in which 2 players play through the game's story. As if the levels in the game arent enough you can make your own for both vs and story. If you want a real massive deathmatch hook up 4 systems and play with 16 players over system link. While not as good as Halo this game is still a great buy and is worthy of a 9. Expand

    An excellent game all around. Very nice single player that almost makes the Goldeneye days return. All of the extras and the ungodly amount of unlockables make Timesplitters 2 one of those games you don't trade-in.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. To be fair Timesplitters 2 was a lot fun with friends as there is lots to do on this game.

    make your own levels challenge your friends at them make a story mode through them only for 1 player though
    cool sound/music in some levels that are not annoying to listen to
    plenty of modes that's what we like about games if they got modes and well this game has plenty must be like over 12 modes to pick
    it has a story mode in it for two players
    controls yeah they are kind of easy to know what type of button is meant to press

    After all this Timesplitters 2 was my fave game with my friends we just enjoyed the levels, the characters and the modes and virus mode too.

    The game was to look like a Goldeneye type game with fun with friends.

  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.
