  1. An intense and fun romp to play through again and again.
  2. The best parts of this game are its controls and all of the added crap they threw in there.
  3. 90
    I’m not sure what it is but this game is just so much fun, maybe it’s the lack of shooting games available nowadays or the inclusion of the foot pedal, but this game is just so much fun.
  4. Even though it feels more like babysitting than crime fighting, it’s still an NRA member’s dream come true.
  5. Haven't had more fun with a light gun on a console since the original Time Crisis.
  6. 'Best Damn Shooter on a Console.'
  7. 60
    The only way to avoid relegating this to the ‘I’ve got nothing better to do for the next twenty minutes’ league is to persuade your friends to buy a light gun and bring over their console and a spare TV and act like John Woo for an evening – great fun!

The scenarios are far more What really makes this game is the Crisis Mission mode that is unlocked when you finish the arcade levels. The scenarios are far more challenging and offer much better variety, often requiring you to avoid hitting hostages, or giving you limited ammunition and time to complete your goals. This is still my favorite gun game, as it concentrates on the basics and does not get overly fancy. Skeet shooting rules too! Expand

The gameplay is largelyIf I had to choose one shoot 'em up game to play for the rest of my life, I would pick Time Crisis 2 in a heartbeat. The gameplay is largely improved over the dissappointingly short original, and the enemies are challenging but fun to kill at the same time. However, gaming aficionados should track down the arcade version, seeing as the light gun action is far more effective on a big screen with surround sound. It gave rise to what I call the arcade boom, and spawned countless rip offs, the highlight being the House of the Dead series, a horror survival where you play a secret agent who battles off zombies and monsters inside a creepy old mansion armed with just a pistol. Sounds an awful lot like another certain famous horror game, don't it? But now back to TC2. Overall, one of the best action games ever created. Expand

    The second part of the Timé Crisis series went worse than the third part, but better than the fourth and fifth part of the series. This partThe second part of the Timé Crisis series went worse than the third part, but better than the fourth and fifth part of the series. This part was mainly made for arcade machines, rather than for the home console PlayStation 2. This is noticeable in the plot of the game, because in the third part of the game it was more open. There is also a problem with split screen, it was not fixed even in the third Expand

    Cool graphics, very easy to beat, shooting is easy, and it's just too easy to fire only one shot at an enemy and they're dead. I Cool graphics, very easy to beat, shooting is easy, and it's just too easy to fire only one shot at an enemy and they're dead. I think the games' worst fault is that it is too damn short--I beat it in 20 minutes!! Expand
