So I played the original TimeSplitters last night. It was a PS2 launch title in 2000.

The game got better with every level. Funny how the water graphics had no splash animation nor sound effects but did have reflections. Did anyone else notice that?

    The first game is pretty rough around the edges but pretty fun.

    The sequel is a masterpiece.

    The reflection effect may have been broken by vertex displacement or animation, so thats probably why its flat as glass. Similar to how SEGA created the reflection effects in the original Panzer Dragoon, the effect would have broken if the water had any sort of displacement or animation to it.

    Not sure why there are no splash effects, maybe the developers just ran out of time to add it.

    Ts 2 was BTW included in homefront as a playable level on a hidden games console as an easter egg. But they actually did not just a level but the whole game. Which if you go looking for you might just find a time splitters 2 playable on pc. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=r14dck3eKbY&

    There were so many unlockable challenges too. I don’t think I was ever able to unlock everything.

      Was the original TimeSplitters on the GC? I know it had 2 and 3 but I thought 1 was PlayStation only.

        Oh, good call! I didn’t even realize it was the second one. I just remembered having a good time with it!

          TS2 and 3 were probably my favourite shooters ever (except maybe TF2?), Halo always seemed like a step backwards because it didn’t have bots!

      Shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot like a monkey

      That was from Future Perfect, though 😁 I’ve never played the first one, but 2 and 3 are great!

        I played so much TS3 one summer that my memory of the rest of the series is hazy

    Oh man, I got that game in a bundle with my PS2 around 2002 with saved up Christmas and birthday money. Great memories! What were the others… Maybe Crazy Taxi, Dave Mirra BMX, and some shite flying game, Top Gun something?
