The graphics are along the same lines as in there Timesplitters
games, where as the characters have a cool cartoony colorfully
look to them but not to be confused with cell shading as its not.
There is nothing that I recall that really stands out as excellent
but overall everything is very good with nice details though out
There is a good atmosphere the music adds in the game and also
the sound is well done from the usually gun firing and objects
breaking or rolling around. Keeping in tune with the Timesplitters
games series it has its fair amount of comedy elements starting
from very near the beginning were you check a computer of one
of the guards you just killed what using to find that he was in
a chatroom talking to his wife, which she then continues to ask
where he is once his dead. Later on in an agency building there
are two men in black looking people who are playing I-Spy which
is quite funny to listen too. There are many other moments through
the game like this which include when you grab a guard. Along
with this the storyline script is very good and all of the characters
are clear which makes it easy to follow.
The controls are ok for the slow moving stealth type
of play but you canít help to compare to another similar game
called Psi-Ops for those who have played. As here you have to
select your power with the left and right d-pad, which then the
R2 is to use it and does feel a bit slow and annoying at times
if you want to switch back and forth a few powers. So you would
think it be better if they made the controls more similar to Psi-ops
where you have each power assigned to a different button, which
then makes the gameplay more action paced and easer to combined
Along with that you canít use guns at the same time, but saying
that the controller setup is pretty easy to use. The L2 is to
lock and aim gun where as R2 is for fire and to use power once
selected. You can also duck with the square button and stealth
along side a wall with R1 which is great for peaking around corners
or shooting over the top of short walls. Although the view is
in a 3rd person you can also press triangle to go to a fixed view
position which I never really used but can sometimes help to see
The psychic abilities are as follows and what they are used for:
TELEKINESIS- This is the most know one
which you should of seen a film, which is the power to move and
control things with your mind. So like switches that are behind
windows and doors you can not get to can me moved as well as throwing
weapons towards you or throwing objects at enemies.
HEALING- With this power you can full heal
yourself if you got a full bar of psi power and if you lock onto
team members you can also heal them.
CHARM- This is you most important stealth
tool as its lets you go totally invisible and walk right past
others but beware cameras can pick you up as they use heat vision.
PSI BLAST- This power lets you attack by
throwing energy blast at a single enemy and also a 2nd attack
that blasts everyone around you but using double the power.
PROJECTION- This lets your sprit leave
your body for you to look ahead and not be seen. Cameras cant
pick you up, as well as laser shield will not stop you and youíre
also free to press buttons/leavers. A bonus to this ability later
on lets you possess others from which you can attack using there
gun and body.
Second sight is more of a stealth game than action like the Psi-ops
games. Although you can go in guns blazing you probably get killed
apart from the flashback missions where you just mostly using
guns. Manly your using stealth, even at times when not I found
that I was not using all the psi powers as most of the time I
found I did not need them. As I used healing at because of damage
and also charm as its best for stealth I found the others was
What I liked about the game was when you
found a computer you could click it and use it like a real pc,
where as once you know the password you could log in and depending
on that current pc you could check the companyís emails, go into
files and open up programs.
There was one bit I found very cool although I was stuck on it
for some time was you could download a attachment from a email
which you then had to insert a cd that you have found to copy
the file over, which you then had to find another pc which had
the program to play the video of the cd you had.
It doesnít really take long to complete, about a week
or two. Thereís only 2 difficulty settings which is easy and challenging
and the only unlockables in any of them if you can find them are
a few hidden arcade classical games that includes Earth Impact
and X Space '92.
==BUY OR NOT TO BUY==
This is still a great game but because of the very low
reply-value its best to buy it cheap from eBay or if possibly
