Timesplitters 2

The power of the TimeSplitters, an evil race dwelling outside of time and space, has grown and the fate of mankind is in the balance. Space marines called in to fight against these evil creatures are being outnumbered and outfought as they battle through the futuristic space station that the TimeSplitters have set up as their base. The space marines finally stumble across a TimePortal powered by nine rare crystal shards, which enables the TimeSplitters to travel through time and affect the course of history.

The only way to stop the TimeSplitters evil reign continuing is to follow them into the TimePortal and recover the nine crystals before they are lost forever. The marines take a leap into the unknown, without any idea as to which time period they will end up in and without any idea as to what the future - or past - will hold.

TimeSplitters 2 will improve on the original in every conceivable way. The game offers a more involving single player and co-operative story mode, featuring a complex narrative with multiple objective-based episodes and superbly animated cut-scenes.

The game engine has been extensively upgraded to accommodate bigger, better backgrounds and special graphical effects while still providing the distinctive smooth fast paced action of the original. A completely rewritten animation system incorporating inverse kinematics brings even more lifelike movement and dynamism to a new collection of 'loveable rogue' characters.

TimeSplitters 2 will retain the unique MapMaker in an enhanced form, which opens up even more potential for user customised game scenarios.

Features:

  • In-depth single player and co-operative story mode
  • Nine 'time travelling' episodes each with their own distinct graphical style ranging from the Wild West to Neo Tokyo
  • Environments are far more expansive, interactive and detailed than those of TimeSplitters
  • Hugely customisable multi-player mode, scenarios including deathmatch, capture-the-bag, escort, last stand, etc.
  • Massively enhanced Mapmaker enabling you to create 'Story levels' as well deathmatch scenarios
  • Over 80 different playable characters
  • Much more character detail and improved animation system
  • Atmospheric musical score themed around the levels
  • Completely re-written AI routines
  • Spectacular special effects
  • Graphically improved interface
  • Faster loading times
  • Monkeys!

I had this for xbox and it was kickass multiplayer, almost as good as goldeneye. Don't know why the hell I sold it, I'm going to get it again in gamecube version so I can play it on my Wii.

I played this at my friends house, but it was really weird because they only bought it because the memory card they bought (brand new) had a timesplitters 2 file with the name "stanson" on it.
