REVIEWS Stronghold Crusader 2 Review
From out of nowhere, Firefly Studios has released a title that is so, so close to being considered an RTS classic.

SPACECOM Review
This strategic space fighter won’t wow you with its looks, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t fun to be had. Especially if you bring friends along.

EIDOS ANNOUNCES TIMESPLITTERS 2 FOR THE PLAYSTATION®2 COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM
Return to the breakneck frenzy with this sequel to the critically acclaimed first-person shooter

San Francisco, CA (July 13, 2001) -- Eidos Interactive, one of the world's leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, today announced the development of TimeSplitters 2 for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system. TimeSplitters 2 is the sequel to the hugely successful and critically acclaimed TimeSplitters, which was released to coincide with the US and European launches of PlayStation 2. The game is being developed by Free Radical Design of Nottingham, England, and is set for release in Spring 2002.

"Free Radical Design demonstrated with TimeSplitters that they are one of the world's leading development teams," says Mike McGarvey, CEO of Eidos Interactive. "To say we are excited about TimeSplitters 2 would be a massive understatement."

TimeSplitters 2 will improve on many of the features that made the original so awesome and fun to play. The game offers a more involving single player and co-operative story mode, featuring a complex narrative with multiple objective-based episodes and superbly animated cut-scenes. The game engine has been extensively upgraded to accommodate bigger, higher detailed backgrounds and dizzying graphical special effects, while still providing the distinctively smooth fast-paced action of the original. TimeSplitters 2 offers a completely rewritten animation system incorporating inverse kinematics bringing even more lifelike and dynamic movement to a new collection of 'loveable rogue' characters.

TimeSplitters 2 will retain the unique MapMaker in an enhanced form, which opens up even more potential for the player to completely customize game scenarios. The multiplayer mayhem of the original will be back, and TimeSplitters 2 further extends the possibilities with I-Link support allowing multiple consoles to be linked together.

"With TimeSplitters we were just finding our feet, now we can go to town and show people what we're really capable of doing - TimeSplitters 2 will be an exceptional game," says David Doak, Managing Director of Free-Radical Design.
