Seriously, this game is that damn good. TimeSplitters 2 was put together by the same team that made Goldeneye and it really shows. This game is more polished than any game I've played in a long time. It's an amazingly good first person shooter.

The graphics and sound are great across all three platforms and the developers played up to the strengths of each system. The GameCube version has vastly improved graphics over the PS2 version, not that the PS2's graphics are anything to laugh about, and the Xbox one adds upon that with even better lighting effects. The GameCube version definately has the best controlls, and the PS2 version supports 16 player deathmatches using the PS2's i-link cable. The enemies all react perfectly to being shot, cradling injured limbs, hopping up and down on one leg if you shoot them in the foot, tumbling down stairs and falling over ledges; something I missed in recent FPS games like Agent Under Fire. The story is really good, the cutscenes really drive the story forward and are very interesting. The story revolves around time travel and it's done very Quantum Leapish, where you inhabit the body of someone from the time period. Each time period definately has it's own atmosphere and they all vary greatly.

This game is simply amazing. It's available for every next generation system and there's really no reason you shouldn't get it. Best of all, you can be a Monkey in multiplayer, and as the Monkey's gallery bio says, "It's a Monkey!" How could you lose?

Yes, this game rocks. You get like 30-40 playable characters to start, but there is well over 100. And you have chinese kitchens, tactical 12-gauges, and monkeys. That's a recipe for fun!

I offer you thanks Pescado. I'm thinking of renting TimeSpitters2 now based on what you said in your post. I'd think about getting it, but as I mentioned in another thread, I only have enough money for one game the next while. And after reading up and seeing the screens plus some demo videos, I'm FIRMLY convinced that Metriod Prime will turn our collective minds into dust and destroy all else in the FPS shooter genre.

I don't think so El Nastio. I don't think they mean Metroid Prime to be an FPS at all, so it should be breaking new ground in different areas.

Questions for El Pescado:

How does this stack up to Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, or Halo in the FPS category (the three top ones in my list)?

What's the multiplayer setup for whichever system you have it for? It it similar to Goldeneye? Does it have Perfect Dark's bots?

Thanks,

With poison running through your veins, and death marching solemnly towards you, heroic acts become more of a necessity as you see your time dwindling.

Vanquishing your enemies, making amends to those you have wronged, and leaving words of love and kindness for those around you become second nature as your own mortality looms

However, true strength lies not in these last desperate acts, but in the actions of one who has to get out of bed the next day and face the consequences of doing that which you believe is right.

I think this game blows Perfect Dark, Goldeneye, and Halo away. It's an amazing game. Not only is the story mode excellent, but the challenge and arcade modes both rock too. I can't wait to get all my friends together, I want to play this all night long.

It's got Bots, I'm not sure if you can mess around with their AI or not yet. You set up multiplayer like you set up Goldeneye's Multiplayer. You can have custom sets of guns though...

I like the game, but I think it is a little too "twitch" heavy for me. Part of what I like about Halo and Perfect Dark (to a lesser degree Red Faction) is they reward you for playing strategically. If you set up an ambush or snipe, it is worth it. The TS games only reward the person with the fastest fingers and even the "slow" characters move mach 3, negating ANY chance to time shots.

Also found it enjoyable, but some things were severely lacking. The real classics like Cryin' or Crazy, or arguably their best ballad ever, I Don't Want To Miss A Thing.
