  • Summary: In TimeSplitters Future Perfect, victory is in the hands of the player's past, present, and future self in a battle that stretches throughout time where humanity is on the brink of destruction from the malevolent TimeSplitters. Cortez--the tough-as-nails hero from previousIn TimeSplitters Future Perfect, victory is in the hands of the player's past, present, and future self in a battle that stretches throughout time where humanity is on the brink of destruction from the malevolent TimeSplitters. Cortez--the tough-as-nails hero from previous installments--finds himself in a frantic race against time in a desperate bid to trace the origin of the TimeSplitters and save mankind. This third installment of the best-selling franchise will feature hundreds of hours of gameplay and an improved Story mode that ties all the missions together, immersing gamers in an epic adventure between the years of 1914 and 2401. Innovative "meet yourself" time travel gameplay lets players be their own ally by teaming up with past and future versions of themselves. The game also will allow two players to fight through the Story in Co-op mode, and features extensive Challenge and Arcade modes, and a Multiplayer mode that allows gamers to battle in 16-player death match online on the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system. In addition, gamers will experience an improved Map Maker feature allowing them to easily create and play their own maps and share them online. TimeSplitters Future Perfect promises to be one of the deepest arcade shooters on the console with hundreds of unlockables, more realistic environments, spectacular special effects, high quality animated cut scenes, an improved physics engine, smarter enemy AI, and much more.

  1. So say what you will about TimeSplitters being too arcadey or too cartoony or not serious enough—I'll just be over here having a hell of a time. Last I checked, that's what games were for.

    An intensive 3D shooter with a twist or two. The plot does not make much sense, but it is entertaining. [Mar. 05]
  3. 90
    Every aspect of the game feels polished and ready to go, whether it's the single-player story, the online multiplayer, the numerous unlockables, or the custom mapmaker. This is one of those rare Jack-of-all-trades that has actually mastered them all.
  4. Free Radical still offers up a fantastic experience that will make you laugh, cry, laugh some more, and feel like a kooky bad ass from the future.

    What this game contains that is totally removed from everything else out there is a quirky, infectious, humorous character, one that seems to deeply reflect the personality of its makers. When you play it, you really sense a stamp of originality and zany flavor in its presentation and structure. [March 2005, p.48]
  6. Cheat Code Central
    80
    The main, single player story mode may be the biggest disappointment in TimeSplitters: Future Perfect but it makes a decent training mode for the variety of other fun offline and online modes.
  7. 60
    Lacks some of the technological prowess of other shooters, but its personality and extras keep its head above water.

Great graphics, awesome controls, and this time each level in the story mode has a place, unlike the TS2, where you could've taken out any levels save the first and last and no one would notice. The only thing I have trouble with is the challenges, some of them seem a bit ridiculous, like some of the hard mode levels in TS2. Other than that, this game is spectacular and I don't think anyone who likes FPSs should turn this down. I can't wait to take it online. Expand

    amazing. i spent 10 minutes creating a metacritic account just to leave a review on how amazing this game is. played it in my childhood andamazing. i spent 10 minutes creating a metacritic account just to leave a review on how amazing this game is. played it in my childhood and loved it, went back on a spree of old games to see how they hold up, zelda, spyro, medal of honour, goldeneye, mario. this was the only one that i enjoyed just as much as a 23 year old in 2018 as i did back in the day. funny, interesting, engaging. the variety in levels is phenomenal. absoloutely phenomenal. i dont think i have ever laughed as much and as consistently as i did at this game. one moment its 70s hippies, the next its wartorn scotland, then the future, then its macabre horror (in my favourite level in 15 years of gaming "mansion of madness"). the variety is absoloutely unplarraleled. cortez is one of the best written charachters i have ever played, funny, badass and oh so interesting. i would pay £60 now for this game without reservation. it is simply one of the best fps ever made. i hope they pick the series back up, or that the fan made "timesplitters rewind" gets to completion. i seriously reccomend anyone who reads these words to find a way to buy this game. OF ALL the old games you could pick up in 2018, this is the finest example of a quality product. i adore this game. amazing job free radical. and thats not even getting started on the hilarious and engaging multiplayer, with AI bots well beyond the expectations of the time period. find a way to play this game.

    Timesplitters: Future Perfect is one of the most funniest and coolest first person shooters that I have played in quite some time. As a modelTimesplitters: Future Perfect is one of the most funniest and coolest first person shooters that I have played in quite some time. As a model of the parody shooter the game really displays its humor front and center, there was some brilliance to its design as well. The 150 characters to choose from, the customization of matches, maps, loadouts, everything and anything could be constructed and add so much replay value. The modes ranged from Team Deathmatches to Capture the Bag, Bagtag, and so much more. Really the multiplayer to this game was just a stroke of genius that Free Radical nailed to perfection.

    The story is lackluster and short, but at least there is some hilarious moments that do stand out more than some games nowadays that have far better stories. The challenges and trials you complete is quite alot actually and were creative with what you had to do. Whether it was keeping cyborg chimps charged and dancing on a disco stage, killing zombies with boxes or just driving a remote controlled cat across a icy lake in siberia, you just knew the game was all about stupid fun and not trying to be serious.

    Timesplitter's Future Perfect takes the sequel and merely adds more to it while also staying to its own identity. It's combat is gratifying and its multiplayer is very well done. Nothing is more satisfying than playing as a carrion carcass holding a baseball against a T-Rex holding a rocket launcher in a disco joint with electronic music playing in the background. If that doesn't make you laugh, then idk what will.

    Looks nice. but it breaks some of the good stuff from TS1 and TS2. continuous checkpoints mean that you can't get back very far, which Looks nice. but it breaks some of the good stuff from TS1 and TS2. continuous checkpoints mean that you can't get back very far, which seems bad if you are nearly dead at checkpoint. but since the game is so much more shallow than previous games, actually it doesnt matter. lots of locked door and other contrived things keep the game strictly on rails.(is this a memory limitation on the PS2?) of course, the game engine rocks, so the multiplayer deathmatch etc are great. shame about the game, though. feels more like an arcade game.
