The story ( or the reason youíre fighting ) is that the human
race has almost lost the war with the time splitters, who are in
control of the time portal. Your mission is to take control of it
and destroy it. The character you play as is Sgt. Cortez, a tough
space marine. At the beginning of the game you see a cut scene of
Sgt. Cortez and Corp Hart (only in 2 player can you be her)
fighting the evil TimeSplitters at the space station where the
portal is located, but as you get to the portal and itís
crystals the time splitters scrambled the crystals away into
different times of human history, which is why you travel into

Story: The game
play and story are both nines. Why? Because the game play
couldíve had a little more character involvement. The only
interaction going between you and the NPCs is fighting; it would
have been nice if you could talk to bystanders. Now to the
shooting part, well its not hard but it isnít that easy; medium
The music was good and the voice acting was decent. The music fit
very well with each level and setting: there was Western music for
the Old West level and swing music for the Old-Time Chicago level.
The gunfire was close to real, but not quite there. So, a ten for
the music part ,a seven for the voice acting, and an eight for
The controls werenít bad; movement was easy. No problem with
shooting, and switching weapons was easy too, so a ten.
TS2 had a nice little mapmaker in which you could create a map in
certain styles like virtual (which looks like the movie Tron) or
an inside of an alien ship. All of the unlockable characters like
Duckman Drake, Ginger Breadman, Snowman, and tons others are a
nice touch (multiplayer mode is more interesting with these
characters). This all gets a nine because the mapmaker was a
little hard, you could not make an outside map, and the size of
the map was somewhat limited.
I think the overall score for TS2 is a nine.
The game play was fun first person shooting, the music was great,
the bonus characters were amusing, and the multiplayer mode is
perfect for any fan of the old Goldeneye N64 game.
