"Disappointing but still fun"
3 stars"

This game isn’t as good as I’d hoped. If you're familiar with the series then you know there are a series of missions through different time periods. What is most annoying about Future Perfect is that missions are continually broken by cut scenes, and subdivided into segments. If this had been done in TS2, then in Siberia, for example, the mission would only last until you penetrated the generator room. Then there’d be an annoying cut scene, and the powerstart would count as a new mission. OK, this can be good if it takes a while to do each mission; you can quit, then return and do just the last half of the mission. But it takes some fun away. Also, because they’ve broken the missions up into sections, they have disguised that fact that there aren’t as many time periods to play in. I haven’t finished the game yet – I still have four missions to go (I think that only covers two more time periods), but none of the ones so far are set in “real” environments – I loved Chicago in TS2 because you could shoot innocent bystanders when tired of the storyline – so far, nowhere to do that in F.P. The haunted house is a blast but ultimately annoying, as only the first part of the mission utilises it, then you end up down in the “secret labs” beneath it – and secret labs aren’t very exciting to explore; their textures and environments are strictly run-of-the-mill. While the challenges are super-fun and addictive (up till 3am on a work night shooting bottles in Harry Tipper’s lurid disco love shack) they’re far too easy – Platinums are a doddle to achieve, so I suspect the long term playability is limited. Rent before you buy!

Description

TimeSplitters Future Perfect marks the return of one of the most critically acclaimed console first-person shooters, where victory is in the hands of the player's past, present, and future selves in a battle that stretches throughout time.

In TimeSplitters Future Perfect, humanity is on the brink of destruction from the malevolent TimeSplitters. Cortez-the tough-as-nails hero from previous installments-finds himself in a frantic race against time in a desperate bid to trace the origin of the TimeSplitters. With the help of some familiar faces Cortez must chase a mystery foe across different time periods to trace the origins of the TimeSplitters and save the day.

TimeSplitters Future Perfect is set in multiple time periods, placing gamers in different areas of the world during the 1920s, 1960s, 1990s, and in the near and distant future. The re-creation of specific time periods enables players to enjoy unique gameplay elements such as weapons, gadgets, characters, and environments unique to those time periods. The ability to time travel will sometimes cause time paradoxes resulting in gamers meeting and assisting past and future versions of themselves. Players will also have the ability to correct the mistakes made in the past or team up with past and future versions of themselves in climatic battles.
