Victory is in the hands of Cortez's (the tough-as-nails hero
from previous instalments) past, present, and future self
in a battle that stretches throughout time where humanity
is on the brink of destruction from the malevolent TimeSplitters.

to trace the origin of the TimeSplitters and save mankind.
Future Perfect throws the gamer between different scenarios
across time - ranging from 1914 to 2401. In each time zone
you get a different sidekick who will help you slay the waves
of attacking monsters. These sidekicks range from a 1940s
soldier to a modern day Buffy the Vampire Slayer like
to the Future fans will love the fact that you get to
interact with different versions of yourself from different
time lines. This means that you will play a level where you
have to help you alternate self, and then later in the game
you get to play that version of the character. You could argue
that it is also a neat way of the developers squeezing in
more gameplay out of the same levels (as the cut sequences
as well as the actual gaming levels are identical for these
gaming levels are quite large and the fact that you zip between
time zones means that this game feels like lots of mini games,
and this really helps to keep you coming back for more.
point worth mentioning - which will be of no interested to
buyers of the game (unless they are trying to purchase this
on the Internet) but developers might like to think about
for the future - is the fact that the title of the game is
not very search engine friendly. There
is no point in developing a world class game if no one can
find it on any of the online stores. It

Amazon seems to pick up both). Calling this game TimeSplitters
is bound to cause confusion. Is it two words or one? If one,
then why bother with the capital "S"?
problem I had was that you can't save the game mid-level.
So, when you turn on your PS2 again you have to start from
the beginning of that level - which is very frustrating if
you are having problems with the boss at the end of a level.
Not only that, but it is pretty easy to accidentally click
on "start level from beginning" instead of "start
level from last checkpoint" and if you do this, there
is no "Are you sure?" Instead all of your hard work
is undone and you are transported back to the start of the

Co-op mode that allows two players to work together; Challenge
and Arcade modes; and a Multiplayer mode that allows gamers
to battle in 16-player death match online. In addition, gamers
can experience an improved Map Maker feature allowing them
to easily create and play their own maps and share them online.
is an extremely addictive game that, thanks to the many extras,
will have you playing long after you've completed the story
