FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

It's Time To Split!

Ha, whenever I think of TimeSplitters, I always think of Cortez saying his catchphrase, "It's time to split!" Then I immediately think of Biff from Back to the Future when he says, "why dont you make like a tree, and get outta here! (when it's supposed to be leaf)" The point is, bad lines can be funny!

But on to the review, so another installment to the art of splitting time has risen. Is it peachy? Mmmyeah I'd say so.

The campaign is awesome. The basics of the plot is that some evil guy named "Crow" is causing havoc throughout the ages. It's your mission to find out what. In every mission you have a set amount of objectives, whether you know about them before or not! You have your pointless sidekick as always (Harry Tipper being the best), and each level is satisfying to play.

What I truly love are the wormholes in the levels. for instance on a train level you Cortez comes across a helicopter, all of a sudden a future Cortez comes out of a wormhole to assist you. You watch your future self's back, whilst he battles the chopper. Then later in the level, you are the future Cortez on helicopter duty. It's many little quirks like that, that make this game a peach.

Of course, if you're a Timesplitters fan, you know that the challenges are what you play for when you're alone and have completed the campaign! So many challenges to choose, from monkey curling to cat driving. It's an amazing amount of fun. Then there's also the campaign creator! That's right, you can make your own map, and make your own objectives - then tease someone to play it. It's no flaccid creator either, it's very confusing at first, but once you get used to it you can be pretty creative with inventing crazy missions.

The multiplayer for timesplitters 3 is the very niche. It's almost the very best if I had to choose one. You have a massive variation of weapons, maps, characters, and options to choose from to create the most chaotic experience. Plus, you have your own profile from the beginning, and can earn random medals, such as kill counts, and knocking off zombie heads! Also there are so many characters to unlock it's unreal. Too much to count, and all the characters are unique and funny! My personal favourite is the gingerbread man, whose catchphrase is, "bite my crunchy brown ass!" It was there and then, he was my set character for life in TimeSplitters 3.

There are all sorts of funny lines and actions, another is Cortez arguing for who goes up a ladder first between him and a girl with a skirt on. He wants panty vision, and she wants protection from zombies. Anyway, the graphics in the game are sweet! Especially for a gamecube title where graphics aren't really in the pros. But they pulled it off, and the movement is grand also. It's surprisingly smooth, even when ther'es a lot happening! so you will not be disappointed in looks.

So you want amazingly awesome characters, fantastic graphics, prefect multiplayer and a hell of a gaming time!? I'd say grab this as soon as possible. I'm sure it will be worth the money that's in your pocket. Where else would you fight in the future with a robot, with a funky moustached secret agent in the 70s, and in a haunted mansion with a girl in a skirt all in one game? Make like a tree and leaf!! And split your time so you can play this wonderful game.
