It seems to me that the Timesplitters series gets better with every game. Free Radical did a superb job keeping with the Timesplitters style, in fact, they really improved it. The storyline is still a little, well, odd. But hey, that's never bothered me in the past. The addition of the wormholes and past/future Cortez' is certainly entertaining.
Again, the weapons are great. Although I've never really liked how the flamethrower doesn't do absolute damage, only fire damage, it certainly looks better now. Sadly, the grenade launcher is gone But the harpoon gun is a cool new addition. The baseball bat was an interesting touch. I have to say I'm a sucker for the guilty pleasure of taking a character with huge reach such as the Deerhaunter (The MOOSE IS LOOSE) or the Stone Golem, and bludgeoning the smaller characters.
Again, this game is suprisingly funny.
|Cortez - Time to SPLIT!|
Anya - Riiiiiight....Whatever
|Cortez - Time to Sp-|
Harry Tipper - No! Just...don't
|Jo-Beth - If I'd known this was going to happen, I would've worn pants|
And some of the things the characters say in Arcade/Challenge when you select them are just, well, crazy. One character, a scientist, shouts "TIME TO UNLEASH THE ASSKICKULATOR" and then proceeds to "breakdance" while going "Whoop whoop whoop". Seriously.
