5.0 out of 5 stars Immense FPS action from start to end!
First of all.. Timesplitters 2 in one of the best FPSs I have ver played. It is by far the best FPS mulitplayer on the cube and its one/two player storyline mode is just as good!
It contains a whole array of levels from Chicago to a level deep in outer space and it is this reason that makes the game so great. Each level is completely different and it all fits in with...

3.0 out of 5 stars Average...Those words come out all too often nowadays
OK,firstly i read the review in Cube,and i preped my self for this,it was apparently the 'next Goldeneye',well it is like Goldeneye,but no where near as revoulutionary.
The Graphics are very mixed, in the story mode they are average, but in the arcademode they can be quite frankly beautiful, but it say 2 player you can see that the system is struggling, because the...

5.0 out of 5 stars Goldeneye? Dump it!, 29 Jan. 2003
This review is from: Time Splitters 2 (GameCube) (Video Game)
After years of below par attempts the N64 classic is finally beaten, but only by some of the folk behind the original. After Goldeneye a group split from Rare and formed Free Radical who produced TimeSplitters on PS2. The singleplayer was short lived but the multiplayer was unrivalled.
This time the GC gets TimeSplitters 2 as well as PS2 and X-Box but the GC pad makes this version more fun than any other. The singleplayer has taken it's roots from Goldeneye(sniper rifle at the start of the dam? Familar?) and it's better than any other shooter available.
There is a huge amount of extra's to unlock including over 100 characters, challenges, cheats, levels and even classic TimeSplitters levels! There are tons of modes like Flame Tag, Virus, Deathmatch and the hilarius Monkey Assist.
The Mapmaker is hugely improved upon allowing you to make huge multiplayer levels and for the first time your own story levels too!
There is so much hidden away in this game that this will become the game that shooters are compaired to, not Goldeneye and the only shooter that could beat this would be Perfect Dark Zero(X-Box 2004+) or more likely TimeSplitters 3, can't wait now can you! This is fantastic in Multiplayer and great alone so no matter who you are, GET THIS!
The graphics are very stylish and have the style of the period of time right. The sounds are great and the guns don't sound like they are firing popcorn(aka Agent under Fire). Travelling through time hunting crystals has never been so much fun.... magic!

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Gamecube FPS?, 21 April 2003
This review is from: Time Splitters 2 (GameCube) (Video Game)
It's the future. Dateline 2401. The nasty TimeSplitters are growing stronger in their outer space lair. A battalion of Space Marines has been sent to stop them, but all but two have been massacred by the alien race. In one last desperate, suicidal attempt to save humanity, the remaining brave duo hurl themselves into the Time Portal. They have no idea where or when they'll end up as they are catapulted through space and time on the hunt for nine precious Time Crystals.
Sounds like a thrilling story doesn't it? Well, forget about it. What really counts about this game is getting through the Story mode as quickly as you can so that you can unlock more characters, locations and scenarios for possibly the best multiplayer and challenge experience since GoldenEye 007.
The TimeSplitters 2 Story mode acts as a tasty palette moistener for the main course of multiplayer mayhem. One of the main complaints about the PS2 original was the fact that the one-player narrative was very flimsy without any real incentive to keep playing. This time around the Story mode, which can also be played as a two-player co-operative game, has been beefed up considerably. Each themed level is set in a distinctive time period and style, ranging from a wintry dam in 1990's Siberia to the gothic catacombs of Notre Dame in 1895 and the futuristic cityscape of Neo Tokyo 2019. It's quite a thrill every time you leap through a portal to see what sort of adventure you'll be thrust into next. After the cold, calculated and stealth-driven aspects of the Siberian campaign, the warm, sepia-tinged tones of 1930s Chicago seems like a refreshing change, even with mobster Big Tony's men hot on your heels. The game dynamics then flip round in an even more twisted direction with the introduction of the gothic horror of Notre Dame and the psychotic cravings of devil-worshipping sex-fiend, Jacque de la Mort. After that all preconceptions fly right out the window and you're ready for almost anything.
Each time you complete a mission in Story mode you unlock more characters and scenarios for the extraordinary number of arcade and multiplayer challenges. And it doesn't even matter if you don't have any friends, because the stunning arcade scenarios can be experienced as a single player battling against computer bots without losing one iota of the thrill. Still, once you tell people you've got TimeSplitters 2 nestling in your GameGube you won't be mateless for long - they'll all want to come round and take a swing at the incredible multiplayer options.
The Arcade League involves all manner of deathmatch scenarios ranging from team deathmatches in Club Soda to monkey-burning antics in Too Hot To Handle. The Challenge mode is just as inventive, including sneak-'em up scenarios where you get Stealth points for evading capture and Gone Bananas, which involves yet more monkey malarky. Or if you're simply after classic deathmatch action just get up to three of your mates and go wild in one of the 16 unlockable arenas. There are so many different options it would take a whole issue of NOM to list them, and most of them have to be seen to be believed. On top of that, we haven't even begun to tell you about the Map Builder facility that allows you to create your own levels. This game really does have it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Multiplayer on GCN, 13 Nov. 2002
By 
Contributor77 (United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
(TOP 1000 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: Time Splitters 2 (GameCube) (Video Game)
If you like a good FPS then this is one to buy right now !
The Story mode isnt all that long but does have Easy , Medium and Hard settings for you to choose from. Easy is OK but crank it up to Medium and you really notice how hot it starts to get.
The diffence between the seetings is that there are more things you have to do on the harder ones and a couple of extra locations to go to on certain levels, I say complete it on Easy first so that you get the general felling for what you have to do before you get wasted every 5 mins.
There are many other parts to the game too apart form story mode like Arcade ( This is great ) and Challenge mode, Each teach you how to play the game better in Multiplayer and how to fight fast and with agility too. I think that not many people will find arcade Honoury league that easy and will keep you entertained for some while.
The Multiplayer aspect is the best tho without shadow of a doubt. You can have up to 4 people on the console on one TV at the same time and it is gr8 fun, although the screen size each player gets is smaller you lose no detail what so ever. You can choose from many different game modes and styles to play from and the best thing about it that teaches to to play the game is that you have to complete most of the other bits of the single player game to open up the extra characters and game modes in multiplayer.
One other really nice touch is the player menu screen under options that allows you to see how accurate your bullets are, how long you have played the game for and how many hours you have played it after midnight ( Insomnia players time ) How far you have ran and total number of rounds fired.
The best thing about the whole game is that it only requires 2 memory card blocks unlike the 50 something that FIFA 2003 uses !
If you do buy this make sure you have 3 friends to come striaght around to play and 4 Joypads ........

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! the 1st FPS for the 'Cube is fan-blooming-tastic!, 31 Oct. 2002
This review is from: Time Splitters 2 (GameCube) (Video Game)
This game rocks! The multi-player mode is absolutly fantastic, we had 8 bots and 2 human players, and the game still ran super-smooth! Very customisable - you can even design your own levels on it - a very nice feature, I might add!
The one player game is also very good, as your team races to collect the time crystals, by visiting Earth's past, and future.
Controlls: The default ones are no good - or at least I think so... but there are plenty to choose from. I find that radicalB is the best setup to use, with the 'cube's unique controller.
Levels to look for - These are the best levels that I have found so-far...
1 Player: Chicago (in the 'Mob' setting)
Multi player: Space (The 3rd level down)
overall: One fantastic game, with a multi-player system that rocks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Its Goldeneye on the fun lovin' cube!, 7 Jan. 2003
By 
Niall "aniallator" (Melbourne) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: Time Splitters 2 (GameCube) (Video Game)
Timesplitters 2 - this is a superb game with excellent graphics, excellent gameplay and so much stuff to do, you'll have trouble decding what comes first!
It matches Goldeneye as a first person shooter and for some reason, the multiplayer madness feels so much more alive on TimeSplitters 2 rather than goldeneye. By the way - for the Goldeneye control style, select 'Radical B' under the control options.
You have flamethrowers, fire extinguishers, tommy guns, etc, etc. You can even man the heavy guns dotted around on certain multiplayer and single player stages/missions.
In the single player missions, puzzles have been added to improve gameplay so instead of shooting the pants off your enemy, or pressing 'A' at a computer interface, you actually have to use your brain to complete the missions!
For two players there is a co-op option, just like Perfect Dark - in which you can play the single player missions with one other human player.
For multiplayer madness theres a massive selection of weapons, characters, scenarios(you'll need to unlock a lot of them) and theres also a detailed map maker so you can build what you play in!
Seeing as its the only decent shoot 'em up, out at the moment - and due to the fact that you can't beat multiplayer fun on any other console than the Gamecube - it is a must buy!
Just press the Button!

5.0 out of 5 stars Timesplitters 2, 3 Nov. 2002
This review is from: Time Splitters 2 (GameCube) (Video Game)
This is a scintillating experience. A testing single-player mixed with a highly addictive and superb multi-player makes for a great game. This is arguably the best multi-player since the likes of Perfect Dark or perhaps GoldenEye. It is definately the best shoot 'em up on the Gamecube. Nine time-travelling episodes with three difficulty settings can be completed in single and then co-operative modes. You venture from Chicago to Notre Dame. There are several minigames to keep you going. Thief(where you can pick up someone else's kills once you've exterminated them), flame tag(whre the person who is on is on fire) and shrink(a great leveller in which the lower th rank the smaller the person and thus the harder to hit) are just a few. Combined with this, you can use the MapMaker to produce levels from old favourites such as GoldenEye and Perfect Dark, as well as your own scenarios. Get it in now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Timesplitters 2, 3 Nov. 2002
This review is from: Time Splitters 2 (GameCube) (Video Game)
Despite what you may think, this is not an other ordinary multi-format sequel to the original game. It has a fantastic multiplayer that will keep you coming back for months to come. There are 11 great single player levels with the chance to replay them in co-operative mode if you wish. The mini-games are great too. Flame tag, where the person who is on is on fire. Thief, where you pick up someone elses kills if you kill them and Shrink, where you get smaller the more you get killed. They are just a few examples. The map-maker is great too and allows you to recreate some of those levels from great oldies such as GoldenEye and Perfect Dark, as well as your own. Get it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars TS2 rules, 15 Dec. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Time Splitters 2 (GameCube) (Video Game)
When I bought this game it was the first and best first person on the Gamecube, now it may not be the first but it is the best. Infact it is the best ever. Goldeneye on the N64, it had a much better story mode than TS2 but did it have over 90 characters (once unlocked)and Arcade League. One the controls are changed to Radical B this games life span does beet Perfect Dark, except Perfect Dark is better while playing. Oh and did I forget Map Maker is great when bored (like that happens many times). I havent realy played on PC shooters, longer life span than Perfect Dark, only FPS I've got so as far as i'm concearned it's a great FPS.
