The Timesplitters games are garbage, though. There's a few decent levels in Timesplitters 2, but for the most part the games are just crap. They control poorly, the multiplayer deathmatch is more like multiplayer gimmickmatch, the bots are retarded, the control sucks, the mission designs are totally hit n' miss, the save game system is awful, the control sucks, and...oh yea, the control sucks.
I did love that Wild West mission in Timesplitters 2, though. It wasn't good or anything, but I'm a sucker for Wild West settings. I also liked the Wild West setting in Duke Nukem Zero Hour.... but god damn...that game should never have been made. :(
