    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.

    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.

    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]

    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 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 match modes where the last place person is helped out by a squad of monkeys with guns..to the enver before tried "Shrink" mode..where your size varies based on your ranking. 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

    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 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. Expand

    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.

    It's amazing how people just loved this shooter in 2002, but the time put everything in its place. This is not a classic of the genre, butIt's amazing how people just loved this shooter in 2002, but the time put everything in its place. This is not a classic of the genre, but junk that no one needs at the moment. Terrible shooting, a very boring main story with minimal gameplay variety, and unbalanced arcade levels for me personally made the passage of this shooter simply unbearable. I do not recommend anyone to play it these days, especially to buy for backward compatibility. Glory to Ukraine! Expand
