The long-awaited full sequel to one of the original PlayStations best pure arcade games arrives in the shape of Time Crisis 2, instantly bringing PlayStation 2 gamers an even stronger adrenaline rush of utter gaming heaven. Youll need a lightgun to play it properly--the G-Con 2 is highly recommended--and once youre kitted up youre launched straight into the frenetic action. Complete with a hokum mission about saving the day, the aim is to shoot the bad guys, while leaving the innocent--including your partner--out of the line of fire. Theres so much to follow on screen and such addictive gameplay that you simply cant help but have fun. For added enjoyment you can invest in another lightgun and play with a second player, which youll end up doing until your fingers bleed. Things arent entirely perfect, of course. Like the first incarnation, the game is quite short, and it wont take too long to get through the handful of levels provided. Furthermore, the one-player game doesnt hold an enormous amount of long-term appeal. Ultimately though, this is one of the best pick-up and play game on the PlayStation 2. No doubt it will be surpassed in due course, but if you enjoy high-quality arcade games, you absolutely need Time Crisis 2. It really is as simple as that. --Simon Brew

With the GunCon in hand this game is superb,and it delivers that happy, satisfying feeling of owning an quality arcade game right in your own home.
Namco have always in my opinion produced high quality ports to consoles. Everything from the Tekken and Soul Calibur games to the light-gun games themselves have always been good-looking, fast, fun, and packed with extras for the home versions.Time Crisis 2 is no exception. It's packed with extra bits, mini-games, and what not.
The game itself involves the usual mastermind criminals who want to take over the world (hmmm, same old story, and very corny at times), and you and a gang of van damme look-a-likes are there to stop them. As in the first game the second player, who can be controlled by the computer or your mate, fights by your side.
The game seems to be a straight port of the arcade game (Story, or Mission Select), but now has an added four mini games, Agent Trainer, Quick & Crash, Shoot Away 2, and Crisis Mission.
There is even a two-player mode, which enables players to either play a smooth and fun split-screen mode, or an I.Link version, which involves two PS2s, aint tried this one yet and probably won`t get to!
The short end of it is that Time Crisis II is a decent looking game that really isn't so much about stunning graphics, volumetric fog, or stunning backdrops, It looks good, and the things it does graphically, such as creating shattering glass, throwing tons of moving characters on screen at once all of which shoot, duck, roll, and which actually grab the part of their body that's hit, it does very well!
I will be on this for a long time to come, it`s a must buy, especially at the price of the game and GunCon pack.
While it lasts, the action is full-on throwing yourself-behind-the-sofa to avoid shots whilst your mates laugh at you. What's more, you can get a mate to join you in a frenetic 2 player mode (although, we always end up taking more damage from each other than the enemy!) and if that wasn't enough, there's a John Woo esque two gun option that allows one player to use..well.. two guns.
Good ideas although I have some reservations - simultaneous two players (on the same console) makes the split screen very small. You can link two consoles but that brings the old 2 TVs/Consoles/Copies of the game argument up. And two guns mode means you have to press the reload buttons on both guns at the same time. Which is fine if you have guns with pedals, or an extra arm. Minor complaints in the scheme of things, I know - but worth mentioning.
I guess the major complaint is longevity. In my book, you shouldn't be able to complete a game the day you buy it, which I did on Story Mode (the main game) - it's a complaint that stems from the short coin-op. 3 levels each with three separate areas in, not the longest game in the world. That said, the developers have tried to make up for that with a number of sub-games; agent training etc, very similar to Confidential Mission on the DC. There's also a couple of retro-style "party games".
Graphically and soundwise, it's clear that the game has come a long way from it's predecessor - in fact, I would say that the PS2 version really does rival the Coin-op.Read more ›
