  • Summary: The evil race of TimeSplitters is traveling back into human history authoring events that are leading to the enslavement of mankind. In control of a motley crew of renegade characters, you must hunt down the TimeSplitters in historical eras like the gangster-ridden 1920s, the lush jungles of Aztec temples, soviet military installations of the Cold War, and futuristic robot factories in space. To end their evil plot, seek and recover the crystals required to seal the rift in time. Expand

    TS2 is no "Halo," but it’s really, really close. For fast-paced and light-hearted FPS action, it takes a "Halo" to beat TimeSplitters 2.
  2. As if the a great single player experience wasn’t enough there are some incredible multiplayer games happening here.

    From the unparalleled sense of speed and unmatched control accuracy and comfort to the amazing cooperative mode, unbelievably deep and brilliant multiplayer modes, sheer options, and MapMaker feature, there is some much to love about this game.
  4. The actual story line is perhaps the game's weakest point, as none of the levels seem tied together in any meaningful way other than the Quantum Leap-like aspect of assuming the role of a character who lives in the time period in order to retrieve the time crystal.
  5. A serious tour de force for deathmatch. [Dec 2002, p.141]
  6. The only flaws in TimeSplitters 2, as no game can really escape nitpicking whatever its quality are the lack of any sort of jump and some potentially frustrating aiming.
  7. While the environments are beautiful, the hackneyed time-travel story line feels shoehorned into the experience... [which] ends up feeling a bit half-baked. [4 Oct 2002, p.158]

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

    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". Collapse

    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. 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

    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. Expand
