Game Chronicles
TimeSplitters has always been a huge hit with multiplayer fans and has never been known for their single-player game. Free Radical has gone the extra mile to enhance both the single and the multiplayer experience. Obviously, just by making this game playable online they have revitalized the franchise, but they have added so much more. And while the single-player campaign is still lacking, especially when compared to anything else out there, it is still a huge evolution from anything they have done in the past.
In summary, if you enjoy the finer things in life such as setting people on fire with flares or putting a nice, sturdy harpoon right through a zombie's rotting noggin, if you prefer your shooters with a dollop of the absurd, and if you get all tingly in embarrasing places over ludicrous amounts of unlockables, you'll definitely dig TimeSplitters: Future Perfect.
Game Freaks 365
When it comes down to it, TimeSplitters: Future Perfect stands well against nearly all other shooters available today on Xbox, and most definitely on GCN and PS2. The multi-player experience alone makes the game worth it, but the added features, such as the League, add to what amounts to a very long couple weeks of gameplay, possibly months. If you have an affixation with first-person shooters, Free Radical delivered a product worth buying.
Al bij al is TimeSplitters: Future Perfect een dijk van een game (om die uitdrukking ook maar eens te gebruiken). Er is zoveel te doen en te beleven in deze game, dat je moeite zult hebben de game na tig tal maanden te vervangen door een ander. Het fijne aan deze gedachte is dat het eigenlijk helemaal niet hoeft ook niet. Future Perfect bewijst dat games serieus, fijn en bomvol humor kunnen zitten. Tegelijk. Grafisch is het niet meteen een waar pareltje, maar de uitstekende gameplay laat je het bovengenoemde zonder problemen snel vergeten. Een game zo fijn dat ik er zelfs mijn pa achter heb kunnen krijgen. Achteraf gezien bleek dat wel wat minder, want ik heb tot op het heden (alweer een klein weekje later) mijn controller nog altijd niet terug gekregen.
The Next Level
When it comes down to it, TimeSplitters: Future Perfect is brimming with personality, and that alone puts it above most of its peers. Although not so impressive by itself, the single player modes are complimented by a slew of unlockables and challenges, but still, TimeSplitters seems to have been made with the multiplayer gaming in mind. It's fun, nerve racking, and funny and it very may well take its place besides GoldenEye as the pinnacle of mindless multiplayer fun.
Game industry News (GiN)
The bottomline is Time Splitters: Future Perfect is a game you simply should have in your gaming library if you're seriously into FPS games period. No question this is a game that can stand toe-to-toe with all the big time first-person shooters out there. Spectacular graphics, superlative gameplay, solid audio, great voice-overs, and a compelling story plot rocket this new hit into gaming greatness. A full 4 + Gin gems goes out to a highly impressive game that will undoubtedly turn quite a few heads as well as the "hands of time"
Still, TimeSplitters: Future Perfect is a remarkable package overall. It’s rich with humor, charm, and personality, and it’s got one of the most substantial replay values in a console title to date.
TimeSplitters Future Perfect fesselt von der ersten Minute an! Ich habe in letzter Zeit bei keinem anderen Ego-Shooter so viele verrückte Ideen, witzige Anspielungen und einen derart großen Umfang erlebt  und das alles verpackt in einer ansprechenden audiovisuellen Präsentation. War der Storymodus in den Vorgängern nur schmückendes Beiwerk, rechtfertigt er nun schon allein den Kauf des Spiels. Mir persönlich machte die Geschichte rund um Sergeant Cortez sogar deutlich mehr Spaß als die teilweise doch etwas zähe Kampagne in Halo 2. Auch wenn der Storymodus hier nicht viel länger ausfällt, bietet er wesentlich mehr Abwechslung. Hinzu kommt nicht nur die hervorragende Steuerung, sondern auch der famose Arcade- und Multiplayermodus. Der heimste für seine überragende Qualität schon immer großes Lob ein und startet endlich auch online mit bis zu 16 Mitspielern durch.
All in all, TimeSplitters: Future Perfect makes for good, meaningless fun. However, many of its modes don't feel complete. As consoles get more and more competent at handling the first-person shooter genre, TimeSplitters feels more and more like a relic from a bygone era. Although, a lot of credit is still due to the variety you'll find in Future Perfect, and fans of the series' mapmaker functionality will certainly enjoy diving right back into this feature and trading new maps online. So the formula might feel slightly dated when compared to the Xbox's best first-person shooters, but with significantly less competition for your online first-person shooter dollar on the PlayStation 2 side, TimeSplitters: Future Perfect will probably shine slightly brighter there.
XBox Front
Die Reise durch die Zeitzonen geht unter dem Titelzusatz: „Future Perfect“ nun in die dritte Saison. Zahlreiche neue Features wie eine aufgebohrte Grafik, eine Story mit vielen überraschenden Wendungen und Xbox-Live Support versprechen unterhaltsame Spielstunden vor dem heimischen Monitor. Ob „Time Splitters: Future Perfect“ den Erwartungen gerecht werden kann, oder ob Teil drei nur ein Aufguss des alten Spielprinzips ist, erfahrt ihr in unserer Review.
In the end, it's obvious Free Radical had fun crafting TimeSplitters: Future Perfect … and it shows. While the story mode is a bit lacking, it shines with all of the other styles of gameplay. There's a huge amount of challenges to face and secrets to unlock. With all the game has to offer, it's well worth the price of admission.
Wer Timesplitters bislang gemocht hat, bekommt mit dem dritten Teil genau was er erwartet – eine rundum erweiterte Fortsetzung, die jedoch keine großen Sprünge macht. Der Spielumfang ist wirklich bemerkenswert und man merkt, dass die Designer sichtlich Spaß hatten – denn das Spiel steckt voller Gags und kleiner Ideen, wie die Zwischensequenzen und Minigames zeigen. Wer Shooter am liebsten kooperativ spielt, wird mit Free Radicals neuestem Werk ebenso glücklich wie Fans von Mehrspieler-Partien. Auch wenn das Gameplay eher simpel gehalten ist. Doch gerade deshalb erlaubt Timesplitters: Future Perfect einen unkomplizierten Spieleinstieg für ein Spielchen zwischendurch – dank Online-Modus jetzt auch ohne dass Freunde zugegen sind.
Defunct Games
The makers of this game, Free Radical, are made up of programmers that once worked on games like GoldenEye 007 and Perfect Dark, two games that are considered classics by many of today's gamers. The problem is that first person shooters have evolved considerably since the days of those Nintendo 64 titles; we live in a much different time where expectations are a lot higher. Had Future Perfect been released this two or three years ago it would have been considered a masterpiece, but in 2005 TimeSplitters just feels out of touch. Thankfully it has enough going for it to recommend it, but I'm hoping that future sequels will be more of a leap forward.
Toujours au rendez-vous, l'équipe de Free Radical nous donne une nouvelle fois une raison de leur faire confiance. Suivant scrupuleusement le schéma de TS 2, cet opus parvient tout de même à sublimer l'aspect graphique du design inhérent aux développeurs du studio précité, tout en offrant au joueur une expérience ludique unique. Malheureusement, l'absence de nouveautés profondes et les lacunes relatives à l'I.A par exemple, empêche TS 3 de parvenir sur la plus haute marche d'un podium disputé. Mais si vous aimez les singes et les canards n'hésitez pas. Moi j'y retourne.
TimeSplitters : Future Perfect est un FPS plaisant à jouer tant en solo qu’en split-screen, très drôle et doté d’un style graphique original. Tout pour plaire aux joueurs occasionnels en fait, mais son manque de profondeur, sa faible durée de vie et sa facilité frustreront les hardcore gamers qui auraient pu espérer quelque chose de peut-être moins riche en contenu mais plus en gameplay.
